What does foster care ministry look like in our church?
A lot like an Old Testament battle.
It’s strange to choose swords, shields, and battles to the death as an analogy for loving neighbors but I think that it is appropriate when we look at the battle that took place in Exodus 17. Here is how it is recorded:
What does God want us to do?
If I had to pick one Bible verse to give an answer, I might choose I John 3:23 which says:
And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
Believe and love. Got it. I know who to believe but who should I love? Everyone?! Okay so if everyone is my neighbor, then which neighbor should I love first?
