Messengers

Long ago in a land far, far away there were people, Messengers, called prophets who delivered God’s messages to people, kings, and nations now long gone and mostly forgotten.  They told people, “Don’t forget God.” “Be careful to do what is right.  You will reap what you sow.”  “Sometimes you do things that make God sad or angry, but God will never stop loving you.”  “Don’t worship fake gods and idols – things that can’t love you back.  Idolatry will always lead to suffering.”

They were messages from God for people with strange names living in strange places…but, they were still…people.  So the messages God sent through these prophets are not just for them, but also for us.Through them God is showing us the way to life.  Through these Messengers, God is telling us, “Don’t forget God.” “Be careful to do what is right.  You will reap what you sow.”  “Sometimes you do things that make God sad or angry, but God will never stop loving you.”  “Don’t worship fake gods and idols – things that can’t love you back.  Idolatry will always lead to suffering.”
