WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE

Anyone who follows me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…

An older gentleman was walking along the seashore one day in the hot sun. As he walked he was sweating profusely and seemed to be in a hurry! Every few steps he would bend over, pick up a starfish from the hot, burning sands and cast it back into the cool waves. One after another, after another, after another he would pick the starfish up and cast them into the water. Some would come back to the hot sand as the waves washed them back in while most would eventually go into the deeper waters of safety.

A young man came along, after having watched this for a while and told the old man, "You are wasting your time and energy. There are thousands of starfish on the sand, what difference can you possible make?"

The old man seemed to ignore this younger man. He simply bent over picked up another starfish and threw it into the water. As he quickly moved on to the next one, the old man turned to the younger man and said, "Well, it sure made a difference for That one didn't it!" Let's all try making a difference in 2018.
