EVADING THE "R" WORD

Jimmy had trouble pronouncing the letter "R" so his teacher gave him a sentence to practice at home: "Robert gave Richard a rap in the rib for roasting the rabbit so rare."

Some days later the teacher asked him to say the sentence for her. Jimmy rattled it off like this. "Bob gave Don a poke in the side for not cooking the bunny enough."

He had evaded the letter "R".

There are a lot of people today -- including Christians -- who go to great lengths to avoid the "R" word -- that is repentance! If you would take "one" step toward Him, you would find Him taking "ten" steps toward you!

(From a sermon by Donald McCulley, Can A Bride Forget? 12/21/2010)
