How often do we skim down our newsfeed and just catch the headlines or highlights? I do it most of the time. If it catches my eye, I might go ahead and read the whole story or article, but otherwise it’s on to the next item. Here’s the problem with that. Too often, the headline is misleading. And once it has entered your mind, it’s there. So unless you make the effort to read the rest of the story, whatever you have in your mind may or may not be correct. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen someone post that Jesus said to let he who is without sin cast the first stone….mainly because they want to deflect attention away from their sin. Problem is, they have failed to read the rest. If they had read just a little more they would have seen that Jesus also told the woman to go and sin no more. My point is…you can’t just skim the bible, reading only the headlines or highlights, and know the whole story. You have to read it all. Because assuming you know it could cost you your life if you’re wrong.

I'm a busy mom, submerged in chaos but infused by the saving grace of God. And while some days it feels like I am hanging on by a thread, I know that everything will always be ok as long as the thread that I'm hanging onto is His. Matthew 9:21-22 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. View all posts by Tonivandewiele
