Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 7:1-10 (day seven)
“So Solomon observed the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him.” Vs 8
We baptists can get on board with this! In order to complete the dedication of the temple, the whole nation threw a feast! Sounds like a potluck of grandiose proportions!
Outside of backing up our doctrine of casseroles, this passage shows us the importance of celebrating what God has done for us. We are great at celebrating big occasions, but what would it look like if we began celebrating with each other on a regular basis? What if we began every Bible study by celebrating the good that God had done in our life that week? What if we began celebrating with our family before dinner how God worked in our life that day? We have a tendency to focus on the negatives that are in our life, but when we look for the good as a community, we will begin to see his daily mercies and gifts much more clearly. It sounds so simple, but our community will grow together when we celebrate together!
P.S. Celebrate the gift of our Moms today! Happy Mother’s Day!
