Deut 20:1 and Luke 6:8 "Excluded" (March 30)
I am smack dab in the middle of a battle. So, when I hear Deut 20:1 "When you go to war and see horses and chariots---an army way larger than your own, don't be afraid." And my mind immediately goes to our NT reading: "He knew their thoughts." Luke 6:8. God, you know... And yet You say: Don't panic. Don't be frantic. God is with you to fight for you. Deut 20:4. You know. So, what stirs in this frantic mess. A glorious mess. And so I ask the words penned by Dr. Luke in the Beatitudes: Am I poor? Am I hungry? Am I excluded? Am I weeping? He knows my thoughts...
