But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
–1 Peter 2:9
Thought of the Day
Let me warn you this might be one of the more random thoughts ever. At times I do make some pretty big stretches to connect and make things I write seem worthy of a thought of the day. Today might be such a day.
Did you hear about the wedding this week between Muhamad Noor Che Musa and Wook Kundor? This happy union occurred in northern Malaysia. It was the first marriage for the thirty three year old groom and the twenty first marriage for the one hundred and four year old blushing bride. I know what you are thinking. At first glance twenty one marriages seems like a lot, but you have to take into account that Wook has been around for a long time, like over a century. In case you are wondering, the news account did not say if Muhamad asked the bride’s parents for Wooks hand in marriage. The article did include this comment from the groom. Muhamad said he found peace and a sense of belonging after meeting Wook.
Those are pretty special words for sure. We all need peace and a sense of belonging. The Good News today is that we belong to God. And our God has called us out of the darkness into His wonderful light.
Lord above, You are the light of my world. Amen.
