What is that in your hand?

“So the Lord said to him, ‘What is that in your hand?’ He said, ‘A rod.’” Exodus 4:2 In Moses’ day, if you saw a man with a shepherd’s rod, you immediately knew a great deal about him. You would know his profession. You would discern his basic skill set and experience. You might surmise his business background and contacts. You would know much about the man’s lifestyle and where he spent his time. His rod represented his life and business background.

Return to Cana

Cana is a tiny, insignificant village on the slopes of the Galilean hills. It was just down the road from Jesus’ hometown of Nazareth. Even today, there is not much to see in Cana, even for eager tourists. There are no great monuments erected to former heroes. No major battle was fought there. No world leader emerged from that town. It has always been a backwater place for ordinary people.

Are you traveling without a Compass?

By Gary Tenpenny Leadership and Life Coach Who do you call when you have a problem? One thing can be said about David, he always had good people around him. Throughout his leadership, David never had to look far for an outstanding ally to call upon. David could be neglectful with his own children. But in times of crisis, he invariably turned to trustworthy associates who could get the job done.
