CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-19-18

 

Hitched

 

What’s Happening:  “A term not likely used in so traditional a setting as a royal wedding – Meghan and Harry tied the knot today beginning at 6:00am ET (later at Windsor, England) – still, it is apropos for a couple who will team their various strengths to begin their storybook life together. The wedding was attended by the 600 invited guests, but viewed by some 3 billion (https://www.yahoo.com/news/prince-harry-meghan-markle-officially-114140340.html). Not in attendance or viewing (at least here on earth) were the the ten killed in a Santa Fe, Texas High school yesterday…or maybe even the ten that were injured (https://www.yahoo.com/news/ap-learns-teen-held-texas-attack-played-football-185006401.html

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “So Harry and Meghan got married…big deal!”

 

Biblical Response:  “Maybe not to you, but the tens of thousands that stood in crowds just to catch a glimpse of their carriage going by might beg to differ…I mean, did Oprah Winfrey or Elton John attend your wedding?! The 200 charities that Harry is involved with will, no doubt, keep them both busy…that and their attendance at Prince Charles 70th birthday celebration has caused the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (their new titles) to postpone their honeymoon.”

 

“Christians? We have some interest. After all, the pomp and circumstance is small compared to the wedding we’ll one day attend (we’re the bride!) [Rev. 19:9]. Meanwhile, just the promise (John 14:18; Luke 24:49) of so great a union has us busy (Titus 2:7).”

 

”Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us realize we are not in this alone; that You have teamed up with us to accomplish Your purposes (Phil. 2:13); in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
