Where can Christians turn when we’ve been pushed around, misunderstood, and bruised with adversity? The answer for us today is not unlike the answer for the ancient Hebrews. Following God’s Law, they set up “cities of refuge”—pockets of security and protection, where healing could happen. Places of spiritual refuge are just as needed today.
Inspired by Joshua 20:1–9, Pastor Chuck Swindoll reminds Christ-followers that the church should be a place of refuge...where the lives of broken people are mended and hearts are healed.
