Israelis Are Confused

Hey, I haven't been able to keep up with the news. What's happening in Israel and Gaza?
Brother, tensions are high. Israel’s defense has been clashing with Hamas in Gaza. Many Israelis are confused about why the world doesn't grasp the full story and only see them in a negative light.
How is the world reacting?
There are global protests, mostly for the Gazan civilians. But many Israelis are perplexed and pained. They see this as a fight for their nation's survival, yet feel the world is against them.
How are Israelis reacting internally?
Some are in anger, especially against Prime Minister Netanyahu. They want decisive action for the affected, like releasing the hostages. But the government's choices are under heavy scrutiny. Netanyahu's approval rates are sliding.
These conflicts are complex. Yet, in Scripture we find hope. Matthew 5:9 says, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." In times of strife, those who seek peace and justice reflect the heart of the Father. Pray for wisdom, peace, and a resolution that aligns with His will.

Will Trump Win?

Hey, did you catch Trump's court drama in NY?
Oh totally. It's like courtroom NASCAR, everyone's watching for an explosion!
Sounds like he was more showman than witness, arguing with the judge and stuff.
Yeah, Trump's courtroom battles just make him more popular.
Really? So is this helping or hurting him?
Well, on the law side it's tricky - NY law doesn't need a victim or loss of money to prosecute.
But public opinion might be another story?
Exactly. Trump's painting this as a political witch hunt, and his base is fired up.
What about the outcome?
Judge McCarthy reckons it's all but decided. Seems his mind was made up before the trial even started.
So Trump's team is claiming bias.
Right. And Trump's standing his ground, calling the AG a "political hack."
Classic Trump move. But man, only God judges perfectly, right? Like in Psalms, "He judges the world with righteousness" (Psalm 9:8).
For sure! Only His court is truly just. This earthly stuff is messy.

The Golden Toilet Heist

This isn’t something you see every day in the headlines. In 2019, some bros swiped a golden toilet from Blenheim Palace. This golden throne is known as “America,” an art installment by Cattelan.

Four blokes have been caught. They’re facing charges now. Imagine going to jail for that!

Biblical Perspective: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Turns out even a glittery toilet can’t satisfy the soul. Let’s stick to treasures in Heaven.

Just a quick reminder - tomorrow, we’re sneaking a comic into your inbox! If you love it, we’ll whip one up every week.
