Building the Tabernacle - Sunday Night

Last time we looked at how the last six commandments revolve around our love for our neighbors and lead us away from the lie of self-worship. This week we will look at how the building of the tabernacle represents how God desires God's desire to build up His chosen people and how God used it to foreshadow His plan for us today. The passage for this week is Exodus 25:1-9; 39:32-43; 40:34-38 for those who would like to read ahead. See you all there!!!!!

Choosing to Forgive

I read an article this week on choosing to live in the freedom found in the forgiveness of others. So often we are hurt by someone else and we choose to live our lives in a state of perpetual unforgiveness towards the person who has hurt us. In this article, Mekel Harris boils down what most of us have felt, " It was simply easier to wallow in past hurt than to throw off the past and be thrust into an unknown future."

I find this sentiment to be all too true in my own life. When I have been hurt by someone in the past, my go-to reaction is to act as if he/she doesn't exist and completely ignore the command to forgive those who hurt us. The reality, however, is that choice to not forgive affects me way more than the individual whom I have chosen not to forgive. As the author so plainly puts it, "Brothers and sisters, loved and forgiven by the Savior, it is time to move forward." I have linked the article below for those who wish to read further. God Bless!!!!!
