Kelli and Steve reminisce about yesterday's Holocaust Remembrance Day, as those directly involved hail warnings. Multiple media outlets honored the surviors' 75th anniversary liberation, and those who passed under the cruelty. “'We have allowed the world again to have anti-Semitism,' said Elie Wiesel, who was a Holocaust and Auschwitz survivor. 'The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. What we have today in the world is indifference.'” (Fox News)
I feel lonely, is there hope for me?
Nancy Fitzgerald says lonliness is not fixed by being with people. Social media is making loneliness a silent killer of this generation. Culture and Technology distracts us from true peace. Relationship has to start with God. Jesus is our Savior; we can't lean on others to cure our lonliness. We are self-serving creatures, but God's design is for us to go out into the world and serve the lost.
Collin Smith (from Moody's Unlocking the Bible) is Kelli and Steve's guest this morning! He explains the relationship between guilt and grief. Sometimes we become angry with God for taking someone (or something) away from us, and we feel isolated. And how can the church body support us and help us cope with our grief? Surprisingly, Collin encourages us with the book of Lamentations!
Kelli and Steve recap the lessons of the day as God knits His tapestry of Truth, connecting them all. From the technology of World War II, to the internet separating us today, God's healing Truth will break through our lonliness and crush the enemy's lies.
