So, What’s the Point?

Let’s be sure we know what the point is.  A young preacher was attending a service where a very well known Evangelist was preaching the sermon.  The preacher was shocked to hear him say these words:  “Some of the best and happiest times of my life were spent in the arms of another woman, another man’s wife.”  After a short pause the evangelist said, “That woman was my mother!”  The young preacher thought to himself, “That was a great line, I’ll have to use that sometime.”
A few weeks later the man was asked to address a Civic group in his community and as he was speaking that line came to his mind.  He said, “Ladies, some of the best and happiest days of my life have been spent in the arms of another woman, another man’s wife.”  After a long pause he muttered very meekly, “but for the life of me, I can’t remember who she was.”   Let’s be sure were know what the point is!



You might be looking at the title of this blog and wondering if I’ve made a mistake in my punctuation or if I don’t have confidence or if I’m trying to be witty or funny – the truth is, I haven’t made a mistake but I was reading an old note that I held back from a number of years ago this morning and it struck me with a question about confidence.  There is a scripture reference, Psalm 42:2, which states, 
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.  When can I go and meet with God?”  That is a great question we should be asking.  But the author of the note that is with that scripture quotation then writes this:  “God is always there when we need Him.  The problem, of course, is that we are not always there when we need Him.”


Caring and Compassion

R. Wayne Willis tells the story of a young student who asked anthropologist Margaret Mead for the earliest sign of civilization in a given culture.  He expected the answer to be a clay pot or perhaps a fish hook or grinding stone.  Her answer was “a healed femur.”  Mead explained that no healed femurs are found where the law of the jungle, survival of the fittest, reigns.  A healed femur shows that someone cared.  Someone had to do that injured person’s hunting and gathering until the leg healed.  The evidence of compassion is the first sign of civilization! 
I admit that I find myself wondering at times where civilization has gotten to with the lack of compassion that we find in our society today.  And then I think about what has been happening right here in Lincoln County over the last month, specifically what is going on today in the Houston Texas area because of what has been happening here in Lincoln County and it restores my hope . . . let me explain.
