The Voice of Wisdom

I am convinced that life would be so much easier if it came with a sound track.  The music would give us the clues we needed not to miss the big moments.  We’d know when it wasn’t safe to head down into the basement, and when to stay out of the water.  We could clue in to the romantic moments when the soft piano began to play in the background.  And every time we heard that pop theme song, we’d know that our decisions in the next scene would be key turning points in the plot of our life.  But, alas, many of the key moments of our life go by so quietly that we miss them.

 As Mindy shared from 1 Samuel 25 yesterday, I was amazed by the fact that Abigail didn’t miss her moment.  Many of the circumstances in life are beyond our control, but there are moments in time when the quiet soundtrack tells us that our destiny is in our hands, and our actions in those moments have tremendous consequence.  The story of Abigail is defined by what she did with her moment.  Her decisive action and the wisdom of her words saved her household and protected a king.  You may not have the fight song playing in the background, but you have the whisper of the Holy Spirit –will you be ready when your moment arises?

Out of curiosity, what theme song would you chose for this season of your life?

Sunday Preview

Next Sunday, we will meet one of the most unlikely heroes found on the pages of the Scripture.  The story of Mephibosheth is one of covenant, deception, depression, and promise.  You can get to know his story in the book of 2 Samuel chapters 9, 19, and 21.
