Stolen Goods

Have you ever had someone take something that was yours? It’s hard isn’t it? We feel violated and robbed of blessing. It feels a bit dirty even. Sometimes people break in and steal our property. And sometimes people steal our joy, our peace or our work. But honestly, we can find encouragement in the Word.

Turning the other cheek is hard.

The theft feels like a slap on the face, but God wants us to turn and offer up the other side as well?

Well—here’s my encouragement and reminder to anyone who feels any form of loss or violation…

Solomon, in all his splendor craved wisdom more than anything. God delighted in his desire and gave him wisdom and then added all the things the common man would have asked God for in the first place (fame, fortune, prestige, title). And with that wisdom he made a decision for two women fighting over a baby.

So when you feel violated or robbed or treated unfairly, remember—

The real Mother will always let the baby live.

Words to live by that add practical wisdom to almost any area of life. Hold tight. Your destiny didn’t need those cracker crumbs anyway!
