Beware

Thursday, June 18th


Beware

An older gentleman was on the operating table, awaiting surgery. His son, a renowned surgeon was to perform the surgery.


As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son.


“Yes, Dad. What is it?”


“Don’t be nervous, son. Do your best. And beware that if it doesn’t go well and if something happens to me, then your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife.

Webster’s Dictionary defines the word beware as; be cautious and alert to dangers, be on guard, watch out.

Doesn’t this summarize where we are in our world right now? We are constantly on guard, looking, watching and being cautious. I have talked to several people, many who are 80+ years old that say they have never seen the things we are experiencing in their lifetime. That generation has seen our nation met with many trials and challenges. So, to hear them say they’ve never seen anything like the magnitude of the Coronavirus and national rioting got my attention.

I started thinking about a statement I have heard multiple times since the quarantine started. Numerous people have said, “It’s going to get bad because the devil knows his time is growing short and he’s working overtime. The same is true for us as believers in Christ. Our time is growing short. Are we working overtime in the lives of others?

I asked myself some questions. What am I doing to further the Kingdom of God? Am I looking for opportunities to share the gospel with the lost? Am I making a sincere effort to reach out and minister to the hurting people around me? Does my life reflect the love and compassion of Christ?

My prayer for myself and for each of you is that we would look within and do a heart check? May we as believers in Christ be found faithful in serving, loving and sharing the love of Christ.

This is a song we used to sing in church many years ago. It certainly rings true, now more than ever.

Everyday they pass me by I can see it in their eyes

Empty people filled with care

Headed who knows where

On they go through private pain

Living fear to fear

Laughter hides their silent cries

Only Jesus hears

People need the Lord, people need the Lord

At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door

People need the Lord, people need the Lord

When will we realize people need the Lord?

We are called to take His light

To a world where wrong seems right

What could be too great a cost

For sharing life with one who's lost?

Through His love our hearts can feel

All the grief they bear

They must hear the words of life

Only we can share

People need the Lord, people need the Lord

At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door

People need the Lord, people need the Lord

When will we realize people need the Lord?


Until next week……. Don’t forget to smile (and wash your hands)! Tammy
