Spring of Life -
It's time for smart children to start making hints about next month's event if
they are to receive something they truly desire. My four-year-old grandson
has made his wishes known. He wants a Wet-Vac! I am trying to figure out
this one. Maybe it's because he has a new puppy and he is smarter than the
rest of us. I would say I want world peace for Christmas but then I would
sound like a Miss America contestant. Anyway I should seek something
within the realm of reality. World peace isn't going to happen. I don't want
to be a fatalist just a realist.
Actually a Wet-Vac isn't a bad idea. There are plenty of occasions when
one would be quite handy. God certainly could use a good Wet-Vac so He
could clean up the bloody messes we are constantly making around the
world. I was thinking of war but then there are fuel spills in our oceans. He
could vacuum up the oil. He really is quite good at cleaning things. On a
daily basis He cleans up lives. He can suck the sin right out of characters. I
was tempted to talk about drunks but that is too easy a target. The really
hard targets are the tough nuts that have been church members for decades.
Just getting them to recognize their need is a major challenge.
Thankfully He is able to clean up all our messes. If we come to Him in faith
believing that He will, He will. He is faithful and just to cleanse us from all
our sins. I John 1:9 – my favorite verse!
