Plot Twist

Have you ever seen a good plot twist in a movie? This is when you think the plot is heading one direction, when all of a sudden the unexpected happens. These can make for some pretty good films. Imagine Psalm 100:1-5 the plot. We’re told to offer our offering of praise and thanksgiving to God because he is good to us. Because God is “good” (v. 5), gracious (v. 3), and leads us (v. 3), we can trust him and praise him. Here’s the plot twist: what God is to us, we should be to others in our interpersonal relationships. We need to be patient with others. We need to be personal and caring with others, while investing in people’s lives the way God does in our lives.
