Does it ever feel to you as if identifying yourself as a Christian sets you up for being judged by a higher standard? Do people ever expect you to be better, more righteous, or even just to have things a little more under control? Maybe you were even taught to have those expectations of yourself, on account of your faith.
If any of this is true for you, then these past few months might have felt even a bit more challenging. We’re supposed to have faith, right? Our relationship with God means we shouldn't be falling apart with worry or overwhelmed by our worldly circumstances.
Well, let’s step back a bit from these sorts of assumptions and offer ourselves a chance to accept our humanity. On Sunday we’ll look at another story of how God’s people complained in the face of difficulty. And I think we’ll find some comfort in the way that God responded to their “failure” to trust.
P.S. We will be receiving our Peace & Global Witness Offering
