“I also raised up prophets from among your children and Nazirites from among your youths. Is this not true, people of Israel?” declares the Lord.

– Amos 2:11 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

None of us chose where we were born or the time period in which we enter this world; those things are determined by the hand of God. This realization does a number of things. It destroys the myth that we are “self made” people, for we do not have the capacity to create the unique circumstances of our generation. This should also humble us, for the opportunities that we see in front of us are a result of God’s mercy in our unique time. Finally, this should focus us, for our response to the challenges in front of us lead us to the fulfillment of God’s purposes for our lives.
