Quarantine

I heard something the other day and so I looked it up to verify it. The word quarantine comes from the Latin; quadraginta and it means 40. This got me to thinking because on May 1st. we will have been in quarantine, that is stay-home, for 40 days! Why did this strike me as interesting? Just think about it – Moses spent 40 years in the wilderness before the children of God were able to enter the Promised Land. Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness being tempted and assured that He had His mission from God to fulfill. 40…both of these events were “world-changing” for those who lived them. Our 40 days should also allow us to find the positives and move forward after our world has changed. What positive has occurred in your life over the past 40 days?
