Series: Throwbacks—When the Past Keeps Coming Back Up (Proverbs 26:11). Retro can be a fun way to re-live yester-year, but when the past keeps coming back up, it’s time to throw out the habits, hang-ups, and hurts of the past and embrace the future.
Message Title: A Slave to the Past
Author: Dr. Hal Hester
Description: The Israelites wanted to go back to slavery because the way forward to freedom seemed to hard, and they had romanticized the past. When the way forward means dealing with your own stuff, letting go of the past, and embracing a new future, at some point it seems easier to give up and wallow in the habits, hurts, and hang-ups that made us slaves in the first place. The way forward means trusting God with everything including the way we think about the past, how we see ourselves, and how relate to others.
