Friday night - movie night
Have you seen this movie? I love the scene when the Israelites are crossing the Red Sea - the music, the torches, the way they included the shadows of whales and fishes when the lightning flashed - so cool.
This was really an amazing event - not only because of THE PARTING OF THE RED SEA - but because of the response of the Israelites and the Egyptians. After seeing the waters parted, the Israelites still didn't believe that God would care for them. After seeing the waters parted, the Pharoah and his army still didn't believe that God could and would kill them all.
Faith. Sometimes we believe more in ourselves than anything. Fear. Sometimes we fear man more than God.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
But without faith, it is impossible to please God.
