I was a reading a post by a good friend this morning - Alan - over on his blog, Devotional Treasures. He titled it "The folly of doing it your way". As is his usual approach, there was a scripture at the beginning, which I read, and then he took some time to bring the scripture to life in his ever unique style. It was taken from the Old Testament (Numbers 14:40-45 NASB), but is still a fairly familiar piece of scripture. I'm not gonna give a little summary: you can read the scripture for yourself, or, even better, go read Alan's post! Anyway, the last half of one verse really jumped at me this morning:
Lockdown craziness has affected us all. Truly, the world will never be the same again! I’ve seen churches face the challenge head on, and do the very best they can to continue to build God’s Kingdom where they are. They delivered food, supported local charities – even setting up new ones, knocked on doors to check on the vulnerable, set up telephone chains for support, posted DVDs, cassette tapes and CDs of services to people with no digital access.
