Chronological Bible: September 14, Excavating the good…
- 1 Chronicles 8:1-9:34
“So they and their sons were in charge of the gates of the house of the Lord, that is, the house of the tent, as guards.” 1 Chronicles 9:23, ESV
Responsibilities int he house of the Lord were passed down along lines of genealogies. The father served as a gatekeeper, then so did his son after him. Lineages of faith, of service, stretch back to the very beginning of God’s people. Let us not forget the good we have received from those who have gone before us. You may disagree with your parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents. In the family of faith, you may disagree with the way the church board and/or pastor are leading the church. Remember: they are people God has allowed in your life. Look for the good things you can take away from the situations. Remember Romans, that God works all things together for good. Let us not forget to look for the good, even from those with whom we disagree.
