We all make assumptions. At least, that’s what we assume. But thinking that I know your motives can quickly introduce confusion and mistrust into relationships. Dru shares how a civil war nearly broke out, simply because people assumed things, and didn’t check to see what was true.

In the New Covenant, he then looks at what we should do instead of assuming, giving practical direction to avoid this communication pitfall.

Dru shares the story of Ahaz and how he failed to turn to God in his crisis. Where do you turn when in a crisis? How will we respond to the promise of Immanuel?
