Sons of Issachar

In 1 Chronicles 12, it reveals how the tribes of Israel were offering their allegiance to David.  As the number of men and their skills were described, the characteristics that marked the tribe of Issachar were: “They understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” (v.32).   As our nation struggles to face the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that, as church leaders, we pray for wisdom so that we too can understand the times and know what the church should do.  Rather than just trying to survive and function in a virtual world, we need to embrace our calling to demonstrate and communicate the gospel to our broken and fearful world.  We have a tremendous opportunity to show the world the grace, mercy, love and power of our great God.  In these dark times, let our gospel shine! – Dr. Gary Mathes
