Salma endured

Desert 0062

An extended drought brought about a famine in the land, and food became a precious commodity. Salma, a prince of his people, took the hunger of his people personally. When his son Boaz expressed  concern that their wealth and health would vanish before the famine was over, Salma said,

“As famine strips us of flesh, it also strips us down to the bones of who we are.”

Salma was an honorable man with a responsibility to his people, and his son Boaz agreed with him.

The difference between the two men was their approach to these life circumstances:

  • Salma endured.
  • Boaz said, “There has to be another way.”

How do you approach the droughts that attack your life?
