What are the issues of Life? Everyone is hustling to acquire money, food, clothing, and shelter. People are climbing over each other to make their way in the world. They are acquiring educations, positions, power and influence to effect the outcome of the their life. Unfortunately, making their way in this world, means trampling someone else to get ahead. What is even more unsettling is that the church does the same thing. When I say the church, I am talking about the children of God. Those people who have given their heart to God. Since the beginning of time, God has provided for His children, protection, provisions, food, clothing, and shelter. But it seems that people are not willing to want on the Lord for provisions. I read a story in the Old Testament about Elijah. When he prayed that the rain would stop, it brought a famine to Israel. For 3 1\2 years, it did not rain in the middle east. God told Elijah to go to a certain place and stay there. Each day God provided food and water for him. No rain came until they were willing to listen to God. We have not had famines in our country. But we do have fires, floods, tornados, and hurricanes. Our economy has almost collapsed because of the Covid-19. Don’t you think God is trying to get our attention, just like He did for the Israelites and no rain. The Issues of Life are not food, clothing, and shelter. The Issues of Life are about seeking God and His righteousness. Because when we do seek God and His righteousness, He said that He would provide food, clothing, and shelter.
