Learning From the Lives Around You
I'm sure like many of you; I have had the privilege of knowing many wonderful, interesting and a few dangerous people over the years. Most of them in one way or another provided an education for me about what it means to Trust the Lord.
There were many who told me to trust and taught me to trust the Lord. These were some wonderful teachers and mentors I have had over the years. They instructed me from the scriptures how the people of God trusted in the Lord in all kinds of situations.
A second group showed me how to trust the Lord. Many wise and wonderful people have shown me how to live and some have shown me how to die. Some also showed me how to live life today and finish life tomorrow They incarnated the truth of the scriptures for me to see.
A third group gave me opportunity to live out my Trust of the Lord. Unfortunately, I have had some Christians lie and deceive me and not keep their word. Difficult to be sure, but it also provided an opportunity for me to implement my trust in the Lord in the midst of a difficult situation.
My teachers instructed me about the truth and my mentors incarnated the truth, but my enemies provided the opportunity to implement the truth of trusting the Lord in the midst of a challenging circumstance.
Who is in your life? What are they teaching you? What are you doing because of them?
Who are you in the life of others?
Serving Him with you
Until He comes for us,
