We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
A God Worth Sharing
All of us know someone who has been impacted by cancer. What if you discovered the cure for this devastating disease… would you hide the formula in a drawer at home, or would you share it with everyone you knew? As Christians, we have the cure for something far worse than cancer. Through Jesus Christ, we have been given the cure for sin, the cure for a meaningless life, and the cure for eternity in hell! Why is it, then, that so few Christians ever share this “cure” with others who need it? Today we see why God truly is a God worth sharing!
