“A boy: the only thing God can use to make a man.” _Song: “Father’s Song” by Jonah33 on the album “The Strangest Day”
Some make more over Adam and Eve than they were meant to be. At their best, Adam and Eve were the best example of what we humans could be here on this earth. But at their best, they were far less than they were eventually meant to be.
The Garden was never meant to be heaven. Life here was never meant to be permanent. This life is a test, a proving ground, a place where our character is built, a place where we are given a choice—a choice where we want to spend eternity.
So in a world where man act like boys instead of grown adults and people disappoint and hurt you, remember this—broken people, rude people, and even sinful people are what God uses to make saints.
- The ONE THING for today: Be as patient and forgiving with people as you can today. As long as they’re breathing, even the worse of us has a chance to be made into a saint. Eternity will be ample compensation for allowing God to use you as a tool in the process for a few short years here on earth.
Extra credit: And while you’re at it, be patient with yourself—God’s still working you too!
Matthew 4:19 (NKJV)
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
