CLARITY – 7-7-18 More Than He Bargained For


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-7-18


More Than He Bargained For


What’s Happening:  “He shouldn’t have tried this in Texas…at least I think that’s what the ‘alleged’ kidnapper is saying…Michelle Booker-Hicks was just trying to pay for her gas when a man climbed in and attempted to drive her car away from the convenience store…with her two kids in the back seat! She jumped in the car, reached for the gun in the glove box, and shot him ( Ricky Wright, 36, is being charged with several crimes…and nursing his wound!”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Doesn’t he have rights, too?”


Biblical Response:  “Yep…and included is the right to be shot when driving off in a car occupied by a Mom with two kids. He should have picked another car to carjack…or maybe another state…one that doesn’t have concealed carry permits.”


“Christians? We believe in a peaceable reaction…but that doesn’t mean we won’t (and don’t have an obligation before God) protect what has been given to us to care for. Stewardship is the principle (Luke 12:42). What is the reward for faithful stewardship? More…may she be fruitful!”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to be responsible for that with which You have entrusted us; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
