Thought for the Day

Christ is building His kingdom with earth’s broken things. Men want only the strong, the successful, the victorious, the unbroken, in building their kingdoms; but God is the God of the unsuccessful, of those who have failed. Heaven is filling with earth’s broken lives, and there is no bruised reed that Christ cannot take and restore to glorious blessedness and beauty. He can take the life crushed by pain or sorrow and make it into a harp whose music shall be all praise. He can lift earth’s saddest failure up to heaven’s glory. –J. R. Miller

    Reminds me of the story of Lawrence, a deacon in the early church. Officials demanded that Lawrence give them the ‘treasures’ of the church.
    Lawrence brought out the poor, elderly and disabled stating that they are the treasures of the church bought by the blood of Christ. He was then martyred on a gridiron.

    May the Lord bless us in our present and future increasing persecution as we look forward to His Kingdom.
