GOD PAUSE: I'm sure you're like me in that sometimes the Bible gives a sort of realignment in your life. God gives you and me a kind of wake up. Well, this morning was one of those times. God was saying “You are interested in religion. I am interested in people.” God says in Zechariah 7:9,10 “Treat everyone with fairness. Show mercy and tender concern to one another. Do not take advantage of widows. Do not mistreat children whose fathers have died. Do not be mean to outsiders or poor people. Do not make evil plans against one another.” Dear Lord, your message is clear and practical. Help me and my friend to walk it out day by day. Amen and amen.
