This Week in Church: Everything Changes

Welcome to the series wherein I share my take-aways from church. The things that, I think, are beneficial to all of us to know or think about, whether or not we believe in any church-related things.

This week in church we talked about everything changing.

The message was about Joseph. If you didn't grow up with the Bible or are too young (or too cool?) to know the story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat, his story is one of being attacked and betrayed by his jealous brothers who sold him into slavery. As a slave, he had some ups and downs, was imprisoned, and then became the Pharaoh's second in command thanks to some canny dream interpretations. He is often used as an example of how God is playing the long game and bad things in our lives can be used for the good.

One thing that was emphasized this week, however, was the whole notion of our lives changing in an instant. That we can go along, thinking we know what will happen tomorrow and then BAM! We are tossed into a pit while our brothers negotiate selling us into slavery.

It's a good reminder to hold our plans for our lives loosely and our values with a tight grasp.
