In worship today we heard Jacob’s story of working to earn Rachel’s hand in marriage, only to be fooled by his uncle Laban. Jesus offers stories of what the kingdom of heaven is like – 6 of them to be precise; often because not everyone resonated with the different stories. We continue our search for direction from God – trusting that God will be faithful to God’s promise to lead us on our journey. In the end, that’s the message of hope; our part is to tell the message. How? By praying for God’s guidance and moving to share God’s word.
I invite your comments,
