We made it!! Noah was in his first play ever... "Henny Penny" and he did a great job. There were lots of practices leading up to in the last 2 weeks but he was a tropper. All of the kids did fantastic! I'm so proud of them. They worked hard to make sure the message of the play was presented.... "It doesn't matter what you eat or drink, or what you're wearing. Just seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you." These little homeschoolers were preaching a sermon up on stage. They've worked hard with no complaining or arguing which, by the way, was the awesome sermon our preacher preached today. "Do EVERYTHING without complaining or arguing." As a church we've been reading through the Old Testament. We've just come through in Numbers where the children of Israel allowed grumbling and complaining to infiltrate the camp. God's punishment was very harsh and He would have wiped them all out had Moses not interceded. He reminded us that the same would be true of us if we hadn't had someone intercede for us. Jesus was our intercessor. Terry challenged all heads of households to be the example of being a person of FAITH instead of complaining or arguing when things get hard or don't go your way. By doing this it will help the marriages, then the family, the church and eventually filter out to the world so people will actually want to hear what we say about Christ.
The challenge was simple: Don't be known for complaining and arguing. God deals harshly with those that do. Don't "forget" what Christ did for us on the cross. If we all "remember" that the wages of sin is death... then we all deserve death. That puts lots of things in perspective especially in times where we feel we "deserve" something different.
What an AWESOME weekend. Lots of good family around and good fellowship with our church family. Thank you Lord for your blessings.
