It’s a process of faith.
Opportunity for change.
This is the 8th week of special Tuesday One Things during the effects of COVID-19. In week one I challenged you as a couple to intentionally grow your marriage during this season. Over the weeks we have talked about a number of things for you to do to help make this happen.
The slower pace had been very good for Nancy and me. I think that sometimes we do not realize how fast-paced our lives really are because it is our “normal.” We have been talking about how much we have enjoyed the slower pace and more time to spend together. Our goal is to not get back in some of the patterns that we were in. We know that will take focus and effort but the results will be more than worth it. What about the two of you? What have you been learning? What do you want to keep as a part of your life post COVID-19? Today, spend some time talking about that together.
Today’s One Thing: Today “say” I love you to your spouse without using any words!

The One Who Sees
You may be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23
“Oh no!” My wife’s voice rang out when she stepped into the kitchen. The moment she did, our ninety-pound Labrador retriever “Max” bolted from the room.
Gone was the leg of lamb that had been sitting too close to the edge of the counter. Max had consumed it, leaving only an empty pan. He tried to hide under a bed. But only his head and shoulders fit. His uncovered rump and tail betrayed his whereabouts when I went to track him down.“Oh, Max,” I murmured, “Your ‘sin’ will find you out.” The phrase was borrowed from Moses, when he admonished two tribes of Israel to be obedient to God and keep their promises. He told them: “But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).
Sin may feel good for a moment, but it causes the ultimate pain of separation from God. Moses was reminding his people that God misses nothing. As one biblical writer put it, “Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).Though seeing all, our holy God lovingly draws us to confess our sin, repent of it (turn from it), and walk rightly with Him (1 John 1:9). May we follow Him in love today. By James Banks
REFLECT & PRAY: Thank You for being “the God who sees me” (Genesis 16:13). I praise You that though You see both good and bad, You sent Your Son to save and set me free. Help me to walk in loving obedience.
