“There is No Time” – Getting Past Past Grudges and Moving On

In the movie Gettysburg, there is a scene between General Robert E. Lee (played by Martin Sheen) and General J.E.B. Stuart (played by Joseph Fuqua).  As you will ascertain from this clip, Stuart (a Confederate cavalryman par excellence) had been on a mission, but had not reported back in a number of days.  As a result, the Confederate army did not know the terrain nor the position of the enemy.  Lee and Stuart had a meeting. 

As this clip illustrates, the past is the past.  We must learn from the past, but not live in it.  We must press on with the lessons learned from the past so we may be better informed for the future.

Dear friends and leaders of small kingdom outposts, lead your people to think on the future while learning the lessons of the past. 

15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).
