Forgive me if I leave a really short message today. (I'm doing this on Thursday night.) I do photography for the sports at the university I work for and we had both men's and women' soccer tonight. Both games went into double-overtime with our girls winning with 3 seconds left. (The guys won as well) With 6 minutes left in the second half of the guys' game the local police showed up to tell us to clear the field they needed to land a helicopter so they could air lift an accident victim. It was a wild and exciting night, but I was on my feet for over 5 hours and my back is KILLING ME!
But the Holy Spirit being good there was a section that jumped out at me, verses 7 - 11:
7 That is why the Holy Spirit says,
“Today when you hear his voice,
8 don’t harden your hearts
as Israel did when they rebelled,
when they tested me in the wilderness.
9 There your ancestors tested and tried my patience,
even though they saw my miracles for forty years.
10 So I was angry with them, and I said,
‘Their hearts always turn away from me.
They refuse to do what I tell them.’
11 So in my anger I took an oath:
‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”
Especially verse 8: don't harden your hearts....
