My late uncle Clifford once told me about a time when he was driving and came across a cardboard box in the middle of the road. He swerved around the box narrowly missing it. Looking back in his rear view mirror he saw a young child crawl out of the box. Shaking badly, he quickly stopped, picked up the child and took the child back to the mother who hadn’t realized that her child had left the yard and gone onto the road.
Sometimes we too need to get out of the box we are in to realize the danger around us… the danger of the loss of eternal life without a personal relationship with Jesus… the world is lost without him. Is there someone in your life that needs rescuing?
My prayer for you
“Our loving Creator God, praise be you, the God of our fathers, who put into the king’s heart the desire to bring honor to the house of the LORD in Jerusalem and who extended his good favor to Ezra before the king and his advisers and all the king’s powerful officials. Because your hand was on Ezra, he took courage and gathered leading men from Israel to go up with him. In the same way please help us out of our little boxes so that we too can have your boldness and courage to reach out to others. In Jesus name, amen.” Ezra 7:27,28
