|Our Zone had a little lunch together! Burgers!!!|

and I ripped my dress before our lesson, awkward...
Just want to share a quick scripture.....“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted” (Isaiah 53:4) With this scripture, I learned many things. Before I really didn't understand very well exactly what it was trying to say. I learned that stricken means to suffer the emotional pain of having leprosy. And if someone in older times had leprosy, it was as if it showed their sins and that they deserved it. And this is how the people viewed him, of his sacrifice, that he deserved the suffering that he did for us. Smitten of God means that the world believes that Christ received his afflictions because it was a punishment from God. As humans, we really can't comprehend the great sacrifice he did. From all the things that he suffered, from the things that we did. And in the way that people live, act, think now, they push aside this great gift and look at it like it was nothing and they don't need it. It really does make me sad that people could think these things of him. But I am so very grateful for the humility that he had to do this sacrifice for us!
Love you all and have a good week!!!!!
