We start another week with more controversy between the White House and Congress. Can any of us remember the last time that wasn’t the case though? Each week brings more controversies to argue over. While some controversies are important to discuss, it is imperative that we all remain calm and disciplined in our communication. Being swept away by the controversy of the day only means we lack control over our own heart and mind. Following Jesus takes discipline and perseverance in addition to faith. We are not meant to understand all that God is doing at any one moment, so we must have the discipline of heart and mind to trust that what He is doing is good. Today, cling to God’s promises with discipline and perseverance no matter what we may see and hear in the news.
“I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” — Jeremiah 17:10 ESV
