God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

The Sermon at the Mall, a Black Friday Allegory - Free Download

 by Barbara Latta

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Now that Black Friday shopping is upon us, I wanted to share a short story I wrote about this after Thanksgiving event. This year Black Friday will be different as social distancing rules are in place. Most shopping will be online while some stores will remain open with stricter regulations. 

I love shopping so the only intention of this story is to remind us to keep our perspective. With number limitations and distance between customers enacted, patience will still need to reign.

I hope you enjoy your week and if you were not able to visit with family and friends physically, I hope you were communicating through technology. 

May your shopping, celebrating, and sharing be filled with blessings!

  1. What an appropriate message for the Season (and any time of year). If we are honest, we probably see some traces of ourselves in some of those characters. I'm so thankful for Emmanuel and the difference He makes in our lives. Thank you, Barbara!

    1. I'm sure at some time we have all been an extension of some of those characters, just like we have experienced the different types of soil Jesus talked about in His parable of the sower. Because of Emmanuel we are redeemed from our old flesh as long as we hold on to His hand! Thanks for sharing, Katherine. Blessings!
