Day 124

Today’s Reading – I Chronicles Chapters 13-16
The whole assembly agreed to do this, because it seemed right to all the people.
I Chronicles 13:4 NIV

The simple fact that everyone thinks it is the right thing to do does not in fact make it the right thing to do.
The problem is called group think. It has even been referred to as mob mentality.

David and the whole assembly acted in a manner that they deemed right.

Their problem was that their execution and their timing was not God’s execution and timing.
The Ark of the Covenant eventually came to Jerusalem, but not as David had originally planned.

Much of our life is like that.

We determine what is right and rush headlong into getting it done – – – unfortunately we often discover our idea of what is right is not God’s idea.

Be patient.

Perhaps that wall you are running into is God’s way of saying not now – not yet. Better to run into a wall than discover the fate of Uzzah.

Your plans may be God’s plan – your timing and execution just might be off . . .

Tomorrow’s Reading – Psalms 1-2, 15, 22-24, 47, and 68


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.

One thought on “Day 124

  1. OK, Pastor Rodney, what day should we be on today? I am really enjoying the readings and your blogs that go all along–I thought I was keeping up–nut maybe I have gotten off when we traveled home from FL!
    Thank you for sharing with us! I appreciate you–trust Sherri is doing well! I cannot MRI yet I pray for you both!
