As we learn from the Old Testament, keep in mind:
1. People are people. People we read about in the Old Testament lived 3,500 years ago yet shared the same fears, hurts, desires, hopes, cares, and concerns about family and community that we do today.
2. Truth is truth. Everyone has opinions, and opinions can change, but scripture shares eternal, spiritual truth.
3. We are servant leaders. God wants us to be influencers in the Kingdom, leading others into the love of God.
