So many stories

~Tuesday Thoughts~

The world's a big place. Last week my Dad and I took a trip to a big city- more than 10 million people. Wherever you looked there seemed to be people. Mothers with children, men off to work, young adults off to work or to college. Or somewhere. Because you really never knew. There was about zero chance you'd see these people again and, as seems to be the custom, there wasn't much interaction between the people on the streets unless they were in a group already.

It is marvelous to see so many people and to realize that each one has a story. His/her own story, full of joys and trials, laughter and tears. Who are their friends? Do they have kids? Where do they work? What makes them laugh?

God created each and every one of these people. If He knows when a sparrow falls, how much more does He know about each of us?

"For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!" Ezekiel 18:32 (NIV)

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[a]" Romans 10:14-15 (NIV)

God wants us to know and to share the grand news of His love. Who can you share it with today?
