1 Corinthians 13:-14
"No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man, and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry."
God is faithful and He gave us a way of escape through the precious baby born in a manger. Th Jews did not recognize the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Do you recognize the Christ Child as your Way of escape from the temptations we are bombarded with to take our eyes off of Him?
Therefore, my beloved, quickly flee, don’t wait, to flee from what you have allowed to be your idols you try to use as a way of escape. Is it drugs that come in all forms such as nicotine and caffeine: Is it alcohol or food? Are we addicted to the high we get off of sugar, or is it materialism? All of these things are destructive when misused as dependencies.
There is only one true way of escape; it is the Gift from God the Father, His Son, Jesus. May we as families unwrap together the only perfect gift that exist for all of us. It is beautiful beyond description, to marvelous for words, to wonderful for comprehension… the Prince of Peace.
In His love.
My Mom and I enjoyed a lovely brunch with friends at Shelton Vineyard in Dobson, NC this past Sunday. The fire was cozy and relaxing, and the food was delicious.
