journey together

Tuesday August 4th, Exodus 16: 2 In the desert the whole community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. 3 The Israelites said to them, "If only we had died by the LORD's hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death."  Have you ever take a trip with young children?  Remember the continued questions and complaints, “When will we be there?”  “How much longer?” “I have to go to the bathroom?” “S/He touched/looked at me” and on and on and on?  Things haven’t changed much have they?  We are all quite capable of being bought off by the comforts of life to the point where we resist and resent a spiritual journey.  When was the last time you went to a Bible Study or Worship, even if you didn’t feel like it that day?  In spite of it all, God loved them.  In spite of it all, God loves you. We are all in this life together, the butcher the baker and from half way around the world, the candlestick maker.  Forget the bottom line and all your justified ways of using your brother to make a profit and enjoy the journey together.
