A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible. He picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between the pages. “Mama, look what I found,” the boy called out. “What have you got there, dear?” his mother asked.
With astonishment in the young boy’s voice he answered, “It’s Adam’s suit.”
Paul Bear Bryant stated, “If anything goes wrong. I did it! If anything goes half way right. We did it! If anything goes good. You did it.”
Thought for the day
Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living! (2 Peter 3:11 LB)
Your commitments can develop you, or they can destroy you, but either way, they will define you. Tell me what you’re committed to, and I’ll tell you what you’ll be in twenty years.
As believers, we should be defined by godly, loving commitments. If we want to become more like Jesus, then we need to commit to the same things he did.
