You know the verse, right? Jeremiah 29:11:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I love the entire verse, but I am especially mindful of the first part this evening. We just wrapped up the 4th Commandment at Cornerstone tonight. Our 5th verse of the evening was 1 Timothy 5:4:
But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.
We talked about caring for our parents and grandparents as they grow older. It just so happens that next week at Remix, we are going to visit a nursing home with the youth. Darcy and I set the schedule back in June or July, not even thinking about the obvious connection to the 4th Commandment. God certainly knew the plan, however.
