20: Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
This isn’t about giving up your bed, but rather about priority and where one places trust as my pastor explained this morning. It’s good that I don’t have to give up my bed, and it reminds me of one of the blessings from NYBC, which is take joy in hardships. There’s a huge difference between a person who’s endured hardship and who hasn’t. This is not only true in the spiritual sense, but also in the world.
As I expected, hardships are coming my way, and as much as I’d like to respond with joy, I find myself just naturally wanting to find a way out of it. Today’s QT reminds me to try again and be joyful about everything that comes my way.
