Good and Faithful

As I write these words, the temperature outside has dipped below 25 degrees. While that is not particularly cold in the Texas Panhandle, it is a rare occurrence in Northeast Texas. It is a strong reminder that we are in the season of winter. Recently, I had the privilege of visiting the North Eastern section of the United States during the annual display of God’s majesty known as a time of remarkable changing colors. The season is that of fall. The faithfulness of seasons reminds me that life is full of seasons. There are the seasons of adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, and that of senior adulthood. The life of a minister also takes on the characteristics of seasons. My trip to the New England states was one of a sabbatical. During this fall adventure, I spent time with the Lord evaluating the current season of my life and looking forward to serving the Lord in the coming season. During this evaluation, I was drawn to the parable of the talents and the Lord gently reminded me, regardless of what season of life you are experiencing, be faithful. It is that Word from the Lord that is directing this season of my life as a husband, father, grandfather, and pastor. The theme of faithfulness will be guiding my leadership in each of these areas for several months in the year 2018. I will be exploring various aspects of life and correlating the teachings of Scripture regarding faithfulness to each one.  You are invited to take this journey with me through the writings of this blog. Please feel free to make comments in the comment section as we travel. I will be posting daily readings corresponding to a 2018 calendar and making reflective comments regarding the passages under consideration. The passages for January 8-12 are as follows:
