I remember when I was growing up as a small boy I had problems with my tonsils. During the winter months I would get tonsillitis and that would turn into strep throat. Mom and Dad would take me to Dr. Newsom in Pilot Mountain. He would always give me a shot of penicillin in my rear every time, and I got terrified of just the thought of going each time my throat would get sore. It was for my own good--Mom and Dad didn’t take me to watch me suffer; it was to make me better and stronger.

It was after Brenda and I were married a few years before I got my tonsils taken out. As time went by my throat didn’t get sore and I grew and didn’t think much about a sore throat anymore, but I would always think about how Mom and Dad would only do the best thing for me in my childhood.

Folks, sometimes things have to be dealt with in our life so we may grow in the knowledge of the Lord. Just as my tonsils had to be dealt with by having them removed, God deals with countries and individuals, removing things that hinder our fellowship with Him.

It was because Mom and Dad loved me that they would take me to the doctor for shots. It’s because God loves us that He sent His only begotten Son, that who so ever would believe on Him would have everlasting life.
