Proverbs 29-31; 1 Thessalonians 4

“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29‬:‭2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Proverbs 29:2 is so apparent in this world today.  In this if it feels good do it, or if it crosses your mind say it, or post it.  If it doesn’t go along with the “cool kids”, it’s probably not acceptable.  Because likes, and friends, and comments, good or bad, are what we live for. In a world where as long as you can quote the Bible, and you are “kind” to most people, most of the time, you can convince most people that you live your life for Christ.

How disheartening when we realize that it was all as fake as the “great and powerful Oz” in the Wizard of Oz. No more than smoke and mirrors.

As Pastor Brandon said on Sunday (paraphrasing), when we find our identity in anything besides Jesus, we can never be free in Him.

Everything else is smoke and mirrors, untrustworthy, and temporary.

How can we pray for you today?

Have a blessed Monday!
