This past month we have been taking a look at freedom and celebrating a new nation. We also took a look at another people who were made free under God. In today's podcast I reflect on these lessons the prophets of Israel teach us about how to navigate these storms that are gathering around us. No matter how bad things got, these prophets never lost hope. There is no reason for us to lose hope, either. God is still in charge. There is nothing He has missed. There are no surprises for Him.

As we continue talking about freedom, as I have mentioned, two of the best ways to help our children appreciate freedom is to let them see what life looks like without it, and to let the see the price that was paid for what they inherited.
Today's sampler falls in the second option as I share the story of a father and a son and what fighting for our freedom cost them.
