A Legacy Of Presence
Topic: Legacy Scripture: Genesis 37–41, Isaiah 41:10
The legacy of being present with those we love is not contingent on our capacity or ability to do so, but on our willingness to be ambitious for family and community and not solely for our own desires and dreams. Just as God is present with us through our betrayals, accusations, denials, and eventual renewals, we too must learn the art and discipline of being emotionally and physically present with our loved ones through good times and hard seasons. God with us means that our fear is futile, our frailty is fortified, and our falling is finite. He will never leave us or forsake us, and is with us always, even to the end of the age. May this ever-present God stir us up, his family, to be ever-present with one another through the victories, failures, and in between moments of our lives.
