As long as we continue to fight the wrong war the wrong way, we will continue to lose. Horrors like Manchester will continue to happen.
The woman caught in adultery was being made a spectacle. What began as a “private” sin between two consenting adults had been turned into a public spectacle. All of a sudden everybody knew and was all up in her business. Every eye in the very crowded city was on her… And then Jesus bent down and began writing in the dust. Whatever it was that He wrote, the attention was taken off of the adulteress. On this day of disaster, in a moment of terror, with that one simple act Jesus provided a refuge. He moved the spotlight of conviction and turned it right around on her accusers.
Falling in love is impossible. If you have fallen, then it isn’t love.

Does our heart beat for what breaks His?
On the days when we just do not feel loved…
For a fight, you want a focused force.
