Living in isolation was not an option for Rey with the kinds of friends she surrounded herself with. Rey is a character from the newest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. I have seen every Star Wars movie and this new one was no exception. Rey and her friends learned that the best way to fight evil is together. Just like the newest Star Wars film, fighting evil together, is a theme in the Bible. God desires us to live in community, because just like Rey finds out, we need eachother. When I feel like doing this spirtual journey on my own, I recite Galations 6:2, "Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Surround yourself with those who know Christ, because living in isolation is not an option for the Christ follower.
My dad taught me about flowers and why we sometimes need to prune them. Flowers and our lives have something in common – they sometimes need to be pruned. John 15:2 “every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”
God is good. From the very beginning. Because it is a new year, I wanted to share what I have been learning in the first few chapters of the book of Genesis. In Chapter 2 I realized God gave Adam the good news before the bad news.
I watched the movie about Mr. Roger's life called, Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. I was so inspired to be like Mr. Rogers I wanted to wear Kedds and sweaters and learn to play the piano! However, those three things are not what was inspiring about his life. What was inspiring was how he loved his neighbor. The Bible talks about how we should live this way. It's not just the shoes and the sweater that inspires, it's how we love our neighbor.
