Duty vs. Right

I have gotten tired of churches praying for first responders. Perhaps there is a tinge of jealousy present. Yet, I tend to think prayers and blessings should be reserved as precious. If I don’t know you, I’m not sure I should spend a prayer on you. And I’m definitely not going to bless anyone for a sneeze.

For years I have heard how we are blessed to have the right to assembly and freedom of religion.

This is what I have to say to preachers or churches that have closed their doors during this pandemic:

First responders understand DUTY, why don’t you? So, I reiterate all those years of prayers, God Bless first responders, health workers, police, grocery workers, food workers, supply line workers, and those churches which stayed open!

At the Cross

You’ve read stories to your children. You’ve watched Disney movies with them. You may have even killed a few thousand bad guys together on Xbox. But have you talked to them yet about Jesus?

You do well if you have and if you’ve told them he died on the cross for our sins. It might be easier for them to understand if you told them Jesus died on the cross to show us how to live. Jesus walked perfectly before his Heavenly Father, our Father. During his walk he shed blood, sweat, and tears to teach us not to sin, to teach us the difference between right and wrong, and to do his Father’s will. He gave his life for us. He died for his teaching and for the truth, so we will strive to always do the good and avoid the bad.

May your children never be as Pontius Pilate asking what is truth. May they know it and live it. Please understand that depends largely on you, their parent and their guide.
