However, we are reminded in the book of Esther that God is still seated on the throne. As He provided divine guidance and protective foresight for His people then, He is still doing so now in our world, in our country, and in our lives.

Depending on your experience, those two words may give you a full body shiver. Isn’t the weekend supposed to be a break from school? Isn’t school supposed to be for children? God has designed us to learn together in community. Notice Paul says in this Colossians passage, “we admonish and teach” so that “we present everyone perfect in Christ”. Yes, we follow Christ as individuals, but becoming perfect in Christ is also a group assignment.

Times of crisis serve as a wake-up call. They are God’s way of reminding us of our own humanity, that our time is limited and we need to be prepared.

In our home, we teach our children to P.R.A.Y. Praise. Repent. Ask. Yield. All of these require a level of humility in placing God above ourselves, admitting our faults, coming to Him with our wants and needs, and yielding to His will over ours. Possibly the most demanding of our pride, however, is repentance. It is hard to admit our shortcomings, but so vitally important. When we fail to repent, even of small things, it can rob us of all peace.
