In The Know… (WEEK OF FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST)

LABELS: MUST WE HAVE THEM???

A READING FOR YOU…

You shall say to them, Thus says the Lord:
When people fall, do they not get up again?
    If they go astray, do they not turn back?
Why then has this people[a] turned away
    in perpetual backsliding?
They have held fast to deceit,
    they have refused to return.
I have given heed and listened,
    but they do not speak honestly;
no one repents of wickedness,
    saying, “What have I done!”
All of them turn to their own course,
    like a horse plunging headlong into battle.
Even the stork in the heavens
    knows its times;
and the turtledove, swallow, and crane[b]
    observe the time of their coming;
but my people do not know
    the ordinance of the Lord.

How can you say, “We are wise,
    and the law of the Lord is with us,”
when, in fact, the false pen of the scribes
    has made it into a lie?
The wise shall be put to shame,
    they shall be dismayed and taken;
since they have rejected the word of the Lord,
    what wisdom is in them?
10 Therefore I will give their wives to others
    and their fields to conquerors,
because from the least to the greatest
    everyone is greedy for unjust gain;
from prophet to priest
    everyone deals falsely.
11 They have treated the wound of my people carelessly,
    saying, “Peace, peace,”
    when there is no peace.
12 They acted shamefully, they committed abomination;
    yet they were not at all ashamed,
    they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
    at the time when I punish them, they shall be overthrown,
says the Lord.
13 When I wanted to gather them, says the Lord,
    there are[c] no grapes on the vine,
    nor figs on the fig tree;
even the leaves are withered,
    and what I gave them has passed away from them.[d]

WE ARE GOING TO WORK TONIGHT…

YEAH.

Hi… I’m Kevin and I love seeing God in everything! Yes… I believe He is in you! Life has handed me a lot of lemons over the years… But you know what??? I think lemonade tastes great!!! Things happen… DO YOU ADJUST WELL??? I never thought that I was going to be involved in a near fatal car accident… I never thought that it would take me countless hours in the Gym to relearn how to walk again… I never thought that I would obtain a Master’s Degree… I never thought that I would work for our US Navy… After working for the USN, I never thought that I would be back in my hometown of Hershey… I never thought that I would meet and work with some awesome people at Hershey's Chocolate World... I never thought that I would love life as much as I do now!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE MORE "NEVER THOUGHT" REVELATIONS.
