“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” (Thomas Edison) This quote makes me wonder how many miracles I see every day but don’t notice or appreciate. One of our seminarians, Paul Flesher, recently told a group of high schoolers: “God, the author of the universe, who is pure love and goodness, did not have to create you; God has no need for you to exist…but God DID create you, and that means that you are GOOD, and God loves you!”
Do we notice and appreciate the walking miracles all around us? Jesus does. In fact, if you were the only person on earth, Jesus would still lay down his life for you. I think that makes you pretty special.
Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life!
