Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Deuteronomy 4:9
Good morning, friends. Below is a funny story by which we can learn something great from a small boy.
The boy listened closely as the rabbi read the Bible. “May I ask a question?” he asked. “Sure. Go ahead. Ask your question”, replied the rabbi. “Well, the Bible says that the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, the children of Israel built the temple, the children of Israel did this and the children of Israel did that. Didn't the grown-ups ever do anything?”
Quite funny, right? Deuteronomy clearly says that whatever the elders have known and seen, they have to pass it on to the younger generations. I watched a movie about Abraham, the father of Faith. It showed Abraham as one who taught his son Isaac and other children about the God whom he knew. Let me write something more which I read just now from the book ‘White cane religion’ by Stephen Hill.
“I’m Jesse. What do you want?” asked the young man with bloodshot eyes to Steve who replied, “I’m a preacher of the gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. I want to come in and talk to you.” This young man opened the door and sat down without a word and so Steve said, “I know you Jesse. I know what your life is like. You go out every night with a gang of 35 guys who call you as their leader and terrorize the country. Your bunch is known for the meanest gangs. You’ve vandalized neighborhoods and you’ve raped girls. You’ve involved in thefts & fights every night. I also know the man inside you. You return home and you cry yourself to sleep at night. Jesse, you’re the unhappiest man on the face of the earth.” Do you know what the gang leader did? He didn’t rise up to beat Steve, instead he started crying like a baby!
There are so many Jesse’s all around you showing themselves as the toughest ones outside, but their hearts are just like this Jesse. What are you going to do today? Don’t you think that God has allowed this Jesse to come into your life? Don’t you think that the peace you enjoy should also be enjoyed by him? Are you not having this Jesse inside your own family? Did you ever have a thought of sharing your precious Jesus with him? Do you like telling him that Jesus is the only one who could give him the peace and joy he looks for? What is holding you today from showing the only Healer who can heal any sickness & sins? Already the clock started ticking. It’s your time to do something for Christ and for the ones who desperately need Him. It’s never late, still there are so many Jesse’s. Let them not stand against you in the Day of Judgment.
May God bless!
