Thought of the Day

Leonard Bernstein, the great American composer and conductor had a difficult relationship with his father growing up. It wasn’t until Bernstein had achieved great acclaim and fame that the two reconciled and grew closer together. In an interview, his father was asked why he didn’t give his son more support when he was growing up. His father replied, “How was I to know he was going to grow up to be Leonard Bernstein?”
It is the good news that God doesn’t wait to find out who we are. He sets us apart from birth and calls us by His grace. Never forget that.


God, Reveal Your Son to me in new and glorious ways. Amen.
