Many years ago, a newsboy, thinly clad and drenched by the soaking rain, stood shivering in a doorway one cold day in November. First one bare foot and then the other was lifted for a moment and pressed against his leg to get a little warmth. Every few minutes his shrill cry could be heard, “Morning paper! Morning paper!” A man who was well protected by his coat and umbrella stopped to buy the early edition. Noting the boy’s discomfort, he said, “This kind of weather is pretty hard on you, isn’t it?” Looking up with a smile, the youngster replied, “I don’t mind too much, Mister. The sun will shine again.” What a picture of the Christian life! Chilling winds of adversity and gray skies of a sinful environment can easily discourage us. But we can always count on better days because we know God is working in our lives.
Remember the words of our Lord, “…I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20). “Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:4-6)
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
