I hope everyone had a great and enjoyable July 4th celebration with family and friends. My family escaped the summer heat in Charlotte and headed to cooler temps in the North Carolina mountains for a few days. Now, back in Charlotte again, I feel like I’m sweating like never before!
We’re also returning to our study series this week, picking up Devotion Days 63-68. When we last gathered, Rob Miller taught us about the importance of not allowing anything to go to waste. This week, I’ll finish his line of thinking by sharing our author’s theme of a “God who provides”.
One of my favorite verses in scripture is referenced on day 65:
“Consider the birds of the sky. They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they?”Matthew 6:26
As you all know, I happen to know a little about the realities of raising feathered animals. I can fully relate to this passage from Matthew. I feed my backyard hens only once a day in the mornings, yet they graze around the yard all day long. They never go hungry because God provides them a healthy pasture of green grass and bugs. That’s what I think about when I read this passage from Matthew!
We’ll continue to meet in a hybrid way…offering both virtual over Zoom or in-person at the treehouse. Enjoy the rest of the week…and I’ll see you starting at 7:30 am ET on Friday!
