A season of reflection and gratefulness for life in its various forms, trials, and triumphs. To me, the season of Thanksgiving is the perfect and logical precursor to the season of Christmas — of thankfulness and gratitude for the love of a Holy God that took the human form of a baby in a manger.
As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.... He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
We are all imperfect and no one is without flaws. And fortunately, ministry is not about leading people to ourselves, it's about leading them back to the One who saved us. How tragic…that we often allow the image of perfection to cloud the need to show where His strength is made perfect in us.
His life, or at least the latter part of it, was of epic significance. Yet he was far from perfect. He could tell lies to save his own skin as well as anyone. What marked him out was his faith, that trust in and obedience to God, which is counted to be the most fundamental characteristic of a good man in God’s sight, the foundation of all other virtues and achievements.
