What if the world worked backward and a drowning man had to throw the rope to a person on the shore? Or our children were born as adults and over time, grew smaller until they fit into the womb again? Or what if vehicles only went in reverse all the time? Ridiculous.
What if we worshipped all kinds of other Gods, yet when trouble and turmoil hit, we expected the one true God to help us? Or we told God what we wanted and expected him to obey us. Or even worse, we tried to be our own salvation by throwing Jesus all our good works? Ridiculous.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, when our thoughts and actions get off base, remind us how ridiculous they are. Amen
