Shifting Shadows

This week around the breakfast table the girls and I have been discovering what the Bible has to say about the fact that God does not change. In 1 Samuel 15:29 we find that God does not lie or change his mind (but people do!).

James 1:17 says that our Father in heaven does not change like shifting shadows. So I did a little experiment with the girls to show them how shadows shift throughout the day as the earth moves around the sun.

9:00 AM

12:30 PM

3:30 PM - I had to change the angle of the shot because we could only see the shadows of their heads cast on the garage doors.

"Mom! Hurry up its COLD out here!"

Last week we read Hosea 6:3-4 and talked about how God is as faithful as the sun rising every day (or actually as the earth rotating once every day).  It was interesting to contrast that with the shifting shadows that the daily rotation process creates.

What in your life seems to be changing as quickly as the day's shadows shift?

Have you recently felt the ripple effect of someone else's lies?

Place your hope and faith in the one true God who is as faithful as the daily sunrise and remains steadfast and unchangeable through all eternity.
