Spring of Life -
It happens here every year
but this time it was especially tragic. A small boy fell
through the ice on a local lake last night. He survived but
the 30-year- old man who went to his rescue also crashed
through the ice and he died.
Surely there must be a
special place in heaven for individuals who selflessly risk
all for someone else. I am sure he was well aware of the
danger involved in going to help the child. We all do. But
he went anyway and paid the ultimate price.
Bravery and heroism surprise
us. It appears sometimes in the persons we least expect to
be brave. Being brave does not mean not being afraid. It
means being afraid and pressing ahead to do what has to be
Jesus was brave when he went
to Jerusalem that last time. He knew they were waiting to
kill him. Just a few months before when He went to Bethany
to resurrect Lazarus His disciples warned Him of the danger.
When He told them He was going Thomas said, Well,
lets go and die with Him. That was brave. I wish
we could remember Thomas as Thomas the Brave instead of
