From the Pastor's Pen

You’ve heard it said that life is a game. But if that’s the case, how do you play? And – more
importantly – how do you win?
Sometimes life works to our advantage: we get the job, we make the cut, and we land on just the right spot at just the right time. Other times, our circumstances seem to work against us: we receive bad news from the doctor, we get hit with a big bill, we don’t get the grade we wanted on our report card, or our best friend lets us down.
Unfortunately, we don’t always get to choose our circumstances; we play the hand life has dealt us. And for better or for worse, we have to decide how we make our next move – whether we press on, give up, start over, or just try to make the best of it. Navigating the twists and turns of life can be tricky. Thankfully, we’re not alone. Scripture has some important insights that will not only help us to play well, but to play faithfully also.
