Today's category: BibleIf Students Wrote the Bible Instead of God creating the world in six days and resting on the seventh, He would have put it off until the night before it was due and then pulled an all-nighter. The Last Supper would have been eaten the next morning--cold. The Ten Commandments would actually be only five--double-spaced and written in a large font. New edition would be published every two years in order to limit reselling. Forbidden fruit would have been eaten because it wasn't cafeteria food. Paul's letter to the Romans would become Paul's email to abuse@romans.gov. Reason Cain killed Abel: they were roommates. Reason why Moses and followers walked in the desert for 40 years: they didn't want to ask directions and look like freshmen.View hundreds more jokes online.Email this joke to a friend
Dear Friends,Do you ever find yourself exasperated at a friend or family member because they don’t share your beliefs, even though you’ve witnessed to them time and time again? Or maybe you harbor this frustration in a subtler way by privately hanging on to feelings of sadness or bitterness toward someone because of their lack of understanding and belief. This has been a common part of my own faith journey, and I’m sure it is for others as well.It is at times like these that we should keep in mind that old familiar saying: “Patience is a virtue.” Yes, I know this phrase is dull and perhaps overused, but when we think about it in biblical terms, patience takes on a new dimension of meaning. For example, at the beginning of the Gospel of Matthew, we see the genealogy of Jesus (Matthew 1:1-17). This passage is a stark illustration of the fact that God used a lineage full of sinners to become man. In the words of one commentator: “Even in the midst of all this sin and unfaithfulness, God remained faithful. He continued to work patiently to bring his plan to fulfilment.”By paying attention to the faithfulness and patience that God has shown His people throughout salvation history and up to today, we begin to see that God does not do His work on man’s schedule. In the words of a priest I heard recently, “We have to be patient with the growth of His grace. This should prompt us to be patient with others.” This is a great reminder for us to not fall into discouragement and frustration when it appears that our words and prayers seem to have little effect on those we encounter. The important thing is to stay faithful in thought, word, deed, and prayer, always mindful that God is continually doing His faithful work and answering our prayers in ways we both can and cannot see.As the Advent season draws to a close and our Savior’s birth approaches, the virtue of patience takes centerstage in the Christian life. Let us patiently await the coming of the Savior, ever faithful in the promises He has kept and continues to keep every day of our lives.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research CouncilEditor’s Note: The Social Conservative Review will be on hiatus through Christmas. It will resume again on January 15, 2019.

God Works through the Seasons of Our Lives The Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons can be a combination of great joy and, oddly, some melancholy. They mark the coming and going of not only the literal seasons of fall to winter, but they also mark the passing of seasons in our lives. My wife commented to me as we were decorating the house recently, “I miss the days when our little ones opened presents that were under the tree.”You see, we have come to the gift card stage of life, because Papaw and Mamaw are not with it enough to know exactly what to buy. It is just a little less exciting to hand cash or an Amazon gift card to our children and grandchildren, rather than a beautifully wrapped gift that we can watch them rip through in a matter of seconds. In my morning meditation, God brought this beautiful verse to mind:To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:—Ecclesiastes 3:1In doing so, the Lord reminded me of two great truths: everything in life has a season, and every season in life has a purpose.To Everything There Is a SeasonA season has a beginning place and an ending place, which are not always easily perceived. Summer kind of slides into fall, and there are days when you are not sure which it is. You love the coming of fall, but you hate the turning loose of summer.Inevitably, the change occurs and the new season comes. You can't stop it because God has ordained it. You can bemoan it, fret about it, get bitter at it; but friend, you cannot stop it. Everything has a season. Some seasons are easier to love than others, but all have highs and lows.There is a time to be born! What a season of joy, of promise, of excitement! That new child learns, grows, loves, and achieves, but he is in the process of leaving when he arrives. Our being born ensures our dying. That is not so attractive. Not because we fear eternity—our hope is in Christ! But because we sorrow at the separation.There is a time to weep. There are no lives that are not touched with trials and a measure of sorrow. But weeping is also a part of a season, a part that gives way to laughter—laughter that would not be appreciated were it not for the weeping. I love God's promise in Ecclesiastes 3:11 to make everything beautiful in His time.Every season has highs and lows, but every season in the life of a believer will ultimately be made beautiful by a loving God. I love summer. I enjoy walking outdoors, fishing, and grilling out. I love daylight until 9:00 in the evening, and baseball and all that summer is. At times, I regret yielding to fall. But then God paints the mountain slopes with orange, red, and brown; and that cool morning air invigorates. Thanksgiving comes, and I think how can anything be better than fall?I regret when the fall season ends and hard old winter comes on. But then, God does something! He puts a fire in the fireplace, erases the color of the leaves, and paints the trees white and glistening with snow and ice. Then He does His greatest work: He closes school for a snow day, and you sled and walk at night when things are so quiet you hear the silence. Then God brings Christmas, and I say how could God be so good to give us such a wonderful season like winter! As He works in the seasons of our world, so will He work in the seasons of our lives.To Every Season There Is a Reason God directs the steps of a believer.The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.—Psalm 37:23A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.—Proverbs 16:9God knows where we are, what we are going through, and He has a design for our lives. We are predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29). It is a comfort to consider that even in times when I do not see God's plan or what His purpose is, God does know and it is for my good!I recently finished a study of Joseph's life. Time after time, he faced difficult circumstances for reasons that were not apparent to him. But in all these seasons—whether it was in bondage to the Ishmaelites, Potiphar's house, or prison—God had a plan, and it was for His glory and Joseph's good!God has a purpose for the season in which you find yourself. He wants you to be the parent of the children He gave you, the spouse of the husband/wife He blessed you with, and a member in the church to which He led you. There is something you can be, a way you can live, something you can give, or learn, or do that no one else can.To everything there is a season, and for everything there is a reason. See it your way: it can make you bitter. See it God's way: it can make you better.
