Today's Scripture: And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat. Ex 25:20

See it.


Live it.

The beautiful thing about people of God is the wide diversity who put aside personal preference to come together as one. That's quite different from a, here-before, growing scab of American discontents. From dishonoring the flag to spewing venom of racism and hate, they range from actors to comedians to politicians. And because liberal media gives them a global stage and dignifies what they do, they all come together if only to spread their misery.

The cherubim on the ark with wings directed to the mercy seat are reminders to me of honoring God and keeping focus on Him. That's good advice for a world focusing on differences. With a world precipced on destruction, and some claiming to prefer it, hope in the Lord is all we have. Of course, if all the "entertainers" who said they would move out of the country if their candidate lost the election would keep their promise, that might be a suitable "sacrifice." Of course that presumes another country wants to import a known agitator.

Pray it.

Your mercy extends over us, God, and your grace makes all the people rejoice.
