“In the midst of pain and suffering and sorrow, what is God inviting us to do about it?” – Steve Macchia
Most of our emotional pain and heartache is unnecessary. Because we are jealous, anxious or fearful, we tend to hold grudges. We tend to throw each other away relationally when that is not the way of God. In this episode, Steve and Matt walk us through the second week of our forty-day discernment journey. This week’s readings from The Discerning Life center on our broken world and come from some familiar passages from Genesis and Exodus. Steve shares about the forgiveness that Joseph gave to his brothers. This forgiveness redeemed them back to him, to one another and even to the mandate their father Jacob gave on his deathbed. Matt shares about God speaking to Moses in the burning bush. This moment was God seeing the suffering of His people and Moses’ commissioning to be an agent of God’s redemptive work.
