I must repeat one of my favorite stories.
There once was a city that was divided by a great wall. The people on one side of the
wall hated the people on the other side of the wall with a great hatred. One night those that harbored hate
threw all of their trash over the wall leaving a huge heap for those they despised. The people on the other
side of the wall had an idea ... that night they threw flowers and many other beautiful things
over the wall leaving a mounding heap of beauty for those on the opposite side of the wall to
discover when they rose in the morning. Above the mound of beautiful things hung a note that read, "Each one gives
what he has."
"The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression." NKJV
I am looking for opportunities to give away some of His beauty today. Do you know of anyone who could use some beauty? Let's tell them about the cross, the resurrection, and the promise of the return of Christ. That is a beautiful promise to leave with folks.
I am so thankful for the cross! And His resurrection! And the promise of His return!
Happy Easter, friends!
