Even the hardest of hearts.

Even when our hearts are breaking, God calls us to keep our faith. We’ve been reading the bible with Ava at night (something I’ve never done before), and I’m absolutely mystified by the hardships God’s people have had to face. But their commitment to love, to the Lord’s goodness, completely changes the pattern of the story, a story we’re still living today. Hope and love and a commitment to something higher than ourselves can transform even the hardest of hearts. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

  1. Sheep, wolves and sheepdogs. Keep the faith but feed the sheepdog.

      Very true. I think a good Christian, a true Christian, is a sheepdog, Mike. The idea of mindlessly following without truly researching, knowing, and accurately teaching is a fool’s game and it’s not what true Christianity is about. Unfortunately, it’s how Christianity is portrayed in our society, but some of the sharpest people I know not only follow Christ with their hearts, but with their minds. This is one sheepdog that is certainly well fed. 😉
