The forecast calls for peace and harmony
We spend a lot of time worrying about the weather. Nothing captures national attention like a brewing hurricane or a string of tornadoes or an earthquake. Weather programming is a fixture of any local news program, and one of our first questions on waking up in the morning is, “What’s the weather like today?” Not much has changed (except the technology) since Jesus’ time. He pointed out that for all the attention folks paid to storm clouds in the west or wind from the south, they didn’t seem to be able to tell right from wrong when dealing with one another. Before checking today’s forecast, take a moment to examine the “climate” of your interpersonal relationships. Dispel the storm clouds and bring some sunshine to those nearest and dearest.
