In light of the recent Duggar scandal there’s been something I feel God has been speaking to me through it. For one, I personally was never a huge fan of the family, or the show just my personal opinion & when this came out more than anything what made me mad was here we have another scandal that involves Christians & it makes us look bad. There’s been a couple of things recently Youngi Cho’s scandal & issues with Mark Driscoll I feel like have rocked Christendom & made the world feel like all their theories about Christians & Christianity are right. But the main thing I keep sensing is that God is bigger. God is bigger than all of this & you know what He can handle it. God has enough grace & love to forgive a multitude of sins. I understand both sides, I understand why so many people are upset & I also understand where everyone else who thinks there should be grace & forgiveness comes from. Ultimately no matter what happens if the show is cancelled, or not God is bigger than this & He’s got a plan. I’m so thankful that we serve a God who can look at our mess & turn it into a message. I’m glad I serve a God that see’s all the things I’ve done & all the things I’m going to do that are wrong & still choose to forgive, love, & use me in ways I can’t imagine. I believe in this situation & in many others God can use this to speak to people & I’ve just been getting this constant reminder that He’s bigger. No matter where you’re at or what you’ve been through God is bigger & He can do great & mighty things through you irregardless.
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9
