It's unusual more couples married thatall to come for counseling, but they reached a point in their marriage wherethey were having some difficulties, and so I came to Councel, and so I satthere and I asked what what the issue was and she said he doesn't reallycommunicate with.

He doesn't talk with me I'll askin,something in he just mumbles when hey won't, really talk. Flod Turne to the gentleman- and I said,is this accurate? He said Yep, okay. Why is that? He said it's always been like that and she knewthat when she married. She was like that when she married so I probe ittle more, I said: Is it just her that you don'tcommunicate with and he said what do you mean Wyou go hunting with yourfriends. Do you talk to them? Do you visit with them? YSAID? Ok,...

...are your friends more important to youthan your marriage? No, but she knew I was like this when she married then said. Well, I appreciate your eyes. Let me ask you this question. She may have known that when shemarried you, but I think if you asked her, that wasa part of you that she wished she could have changed before Shema. She didn't marry you because you'relike it, she married you in spite of the factyou're like that, and so I want to ask you: Would you be willing to come tosome counselling sessions to possibly change your marriage means that much to Yo...

Lok Don Lok back? U Hea Yep Richard It does so we did some marriage counseling and did some weeks of counseling and Godbegan working and it was really neat to see what God did through all them. However, I use that as an example that a lot oftimes we excuse our behavior. I say that's the way I am She Kyeu im like that. God knows I'm like that and we continue to do wrong. I say God knows that about me. She knows thatabout me. He knows that about me. God understands my weaknesses. It would be good to remember that Godis Om. eventhough God understands. He is hope,ould be good to remember that, while...

Jesus is our best friend, he is also God and as such there should be reverence. Our rating for today was dued. Aron metwenty three through twenty five, which dealt with various laws and uncleanness I'm going to read from Nuteronmi twentythree versus twelve through fourteen, you shall also have a place outside thecamp go out there. You shall have a shovel among your tools. It shall bewhen you sit down outside you shall det with it and she'll turn to cover upyour excrement, the slordor God walks in the midst ofyour camp, to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before you. Therefore,your camp must be old and he must not see anything indecentamong...

...or he will turn away. Oyes is an unusual text. Those of youare rading for the Bible. For the first time, the BIBL's full of fin text you're,like wow node, told hem to go outside the camp and use the restroom outsidethe camp with his shovel. That's interesting in was full of these typeof days, but there's always principles and we'll see one. Even today, the Israelites were commanded that,when nature hit take a shovel go outside the camp, relieve yourself andcover it up odd. Indeed, for this to be in the lawof Moses in a book which address the TanCommandments, in obedience to God, we have a text here on personal hyge, perhaps even more hg was the rationalGod gave when he gave these instruction.

They were to go outside the camp to usethe restroom and cover it up because God walks in the midst of the camp todefeat their enemies and he must not see anything indecent, Amon E, that's strange, God sees all the further God made the human, but he knows what nature does with theHuman God, while using the restroom might be aprivate activity. It is normal activity, an activity which is necessary and forwhich our bodies were made,...

...and the creator of ourbonds who seevsall things now teclares to the Israelites, where theyare to use the restaurant outside the camp and further there tocover it because got who sees everything must not see anythingindecent amount, strange and, oddly, perhaps God is revel, but while he sees everything and while he created the Human Bot, we should not be so comfortable in hispresence. Then we don't rever. If, while God made us and he's our bestfriend,...

...we should never get so comfortable that there's not reverence for God. Perhaps God is revealed while Jesus is certainly closer thanAbro. enevertheless is still tealmithe, Alfa and Theoma. Perhapsthis is why our grandparents were ties to church. Perhaps this is why mentessified trembling when they prayedto go. Perhaps this is why men and women spentpowrs on their knees in prayer ecause. They understood a reverence forgot. Yes, they were costyes, hemeant more than ever,...

...but they refeared and gave him the reverence E. is I'm so grateful for Jesus, I'm so grateful that he has always beenthere when no one else was I'm so grateful. He is my best friend, but may I never forget that Heis a lion while he's a lion that allows us to pay he's still alive and as such deserves reverence. He is more than worth of our riss. I cannot excuse my sin by saying God made me, and so he understandshowiyes he may,...

...but then he see the Holy Spirit's. Now in that I mightchange and be conformed to the image of Cros. I can change so can you because God save us and lives instoy'll ever say God made me this way and he understandswhy? I S? No it doesn't. He may understand our weaknesses. He's Givin US grace to overcome ercy Don'll ever use God's knowledge of you as an excuse to not changes. We can change...

...an out of reverence for the God whosaved us. We should change and become more like Cesus, and we praythat today Jist Bray that we'll be more like Jesus. I will lead us in prayerbefore I do. I want to remind you tomorrow will be in Ne Aronomy Chapters,Twenty Six through twenty eight, but let's go to the o bother. We thank you for your. Thankyou. We're making our way through this amazing book, the second giving of thelaw dueeronomi right before the Israelites walked into the promce. Thank you for reminding us from thistext today.
