Sunday to Monday | Saying What is Hard

Moses' father-in-law said to him, ‘What you are doing is not good. You will surely wear yourself out, both you and these people with you. For the task is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone." Exodus 18:17,18

On Sunday, Pastor Dave continued the sermon series “God Surrounds Us with Friends.” His sermon topic was entitled “Saying What is Hard (Jethro)” and he used the texts of Psalm 23 and Exodus 18:13-27.

We also remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “ I have decided to continue to profess my desire and belief in nonviolence, for through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can’t murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can’t establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate. Darkness cannot put out darkness, only light can do that!”

Some questions to think about…
· How would you describe the tension between “healthy” and “unhealthy” stress in your life?
· Who is your Jethro? The one who challenges you to make appropriate changes? (Exodus 18)
· Where do you feel stressed out, or burnt out? Have you confessed to God you cannot do it “alone” (Exodus 18:18) and ask for help?
· Pray for more men and women to serve with so that you life might make an impact, and your burdens remain light (Exodus 18: 20-27).
