The scripture for today, August 4, is Acts 8:4 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”
Sometimes our plans get scattered, our dreams shattered. We lose our home, our job, our chance at an education, our savings, our family.
Satan loves to discourage us. He’s good at it. But Romans 8:28 says that God can make something good come out of all things ~ good or bad.
What about us? What if, for instance, we lose our home or job and go to another one? We are the same person we were at the old home or job as the new one. Are we sharing the Good News right now? If we’re not, then what is the likelihood we will be any different when our life is “scattered”?
DISCUSSION QUESTION: HAVE YOU EVER LOST SOMETHING IMPORTANT, GRIEVED, THEN IT WAS REPLACED BY SOMETHING BETTER?
