As we traverse on our journey through Lent, we all have a plethora of things for which to be thankful. One of those things is information. We live in a time where we have access to information at our fingertips. Surviving COVID-19, working remotely, homeschooling, to be or not to be vaccinated, are a few examples of how we have depended on information to assist us in our daily lives. Unfortunately, not everyone took advantage of this information and some of the consequences were dire.
Hosea 4:6 tells us that my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. In the past two years, we have seen record deaths due to COVID-19, where some of those could have been prevented. God has put individuals in places to provide us with knowledge that will better our lives. It is up to us to take heed or disregard it. I encourage you all during this Lenten season to learn something new, educate yourself about something outside of your norm, and to increase your knowledge of the abundance of God’s grace and mercies.
