Saying "thank you," from the heart, is not just the old way, it's God's way!
Things we pursue for security's sake, like money, entertainment - or even family, can mask who we are. But God offers us a different covering - the white robe of righteousness. It doesn't cover who we are, but fundamentally changes who we are inside.
Some masks & coverups are fun. Others are damaging.
Throughout the Bible God redirects us from our own wisdom to seeking His wisdom. As soon as we look outside of ourselves we see that Jesus has risen, the tomb is empty and our eternity is secure.
Moses received wise counsel from his father-in-law in today's study of Exodus 18:24-26. Pastor Krause directs us to Solomon and the Book of Proverbs for some guidance in making good decisions.

What's Your Crocodile? It's hard to let go and not be in control. But we get to trust God more than we trust ourselves!
1) Are we teaching those around us, including little kids, to live by faith or by fear?
2) The world around us tries to tell us that marriage and children aren't all that important.
3) God chooses who gets to live, not us.
4) Our fears can distract and divide us.
5) What's your crocodile? God is bigger than every fear, every crocodile in your way!
Good Friday really is a Good day! We journey with Jesus to the cross where we see Jesus win our freedom by being "Sacrificed."

...it happens. People form cliques or exclusive groups and it can make you feel like an outsider. In ancient times it was often rare for Gentiles to be accepted into Jewish circles, but sometimes God took matters into His own hands.
