Being a Good Ancestor and not a Better Ancestor

Elijah wanted to be better than his ancestors and failed. He wanted to be more righteous, more zealous, more faithful. Then, over the course of his 40 days journey he discovered all he could do was do the best he could and focus not on generations past but on generations in the future. He could only try to be a good ancestor, not a better ancestor.

The message on Sunday will encourage us to ponder the many ways we experience and know God in our lives.
