But, God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ Died for us.
Thought of the Day
I found an interesting little book the other day. It is filled with different percentages and odds that occur in our lives. It explores the chances of us accomplishing different things in our lifetime. For instance, do you know the odds of you marrying a supermodel? (I do, because I did. So did my wife.) They are 88,000 to 1. What about marrying a millionaire? The odds are only 215 to 1. Did you know that if you served in the armed services that the odds that you would win the Medal of Honor would be 11,000 to 1. If you enter show business the odds are only 11,500 to 1 that you will win an Oscar. Want to be President of the United States? You might need to have a back up plan. The odds are 10,000,000 to 1.
Those are all some pretty bad odds. Let me tell you about some great odds that I read in this other book. It is the Bible. It seems that the odds that God loves us is 1 to 1. You see, He shows us that love by sending His son, Jesus to be with us and to feed us and to heal us and to die for us. 1 to 1. I like those odds.
Lord, You are most faithful with Your love. Amen.
