As a mother comforts her child,
so I will comfort you;
you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. Isaiah 66:13
To a successful kingdom surrounded by great powers, a defeated people taken to live in a foreign land, and 1st century disciples sent on the road with nothing, today's scriptures have a word of comfort: “Wherever and however you are, God, his power and his love go with you.” Or, as the VBS curriculum for “Roar: Life is Wild: God is Good” reads and in Golden, Colorado, next week 280 children will shout:
When life is unfair:...God is good!
When life is scary...God is good!
When life changes...God is good!
When life is sad...God is good!
When life is good:...God is good!
Out of the mouth of babes. Sometimes the scriptures are just not that complicated.
