Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world…??? Nope not Swayze’s southern-yankee drawl or even his playlist of gothic metal screaming rock that he sometimes brings for us to jam to…its was the ever present sound of a too close for comfort alarm going off in the distance in the Smokehouse gloom. That sound kept us company throughout this mornings activities and yeah it was pretty annoying. The strong pax of Smokehouse persevered through it though and got some work done. Here is what went down.

Proceed back to parking lot and back to YHC’s truck, grab 2 more bricks or 3, whatever you can carry back to the field just so long as all the bricks get out of my truck.

Devo: In Deuteronomy 6, we see that the future of the nation of Israel involved the conquest of existing places. So they would move into large flourishing cities they did not build (v. 10), occupy houses filled with good things they didn’t provide, and benefit from wells and vineyards and olive groves they didn’t dig or plant (v. 11). All these blessings could be easily traced back to a single source—“the Lord your God” (v. 10). And while God lovingly provided these things and more, Moses wanted to make sure the people were careful not to forget (v. 12).
In this Christmas season and anytime, let us not forget where our blessings come from. Thank you God for all of our gifts!
