You will probably recall a recent devotion about the nesting swans at our golf course. It was a story about how their nest was in the line of fire for a badly hit shot and the protection that some club members and green staff put up to stop any ball hitting the swan or eggs. Well, I am sure you will be as thrilled as we all are that there are now five cygnets – five balls of fluff swimming along effortlessly, with their parents never too far away. How good is it when a plan works!
A positive plan well executed and completed is very pleasing. How about God’s plan to save the world from itself? That was an incredible plan, to send and sacrifice his son so that others could live. A plan where the planner suffers incredible loss. I wonder if he ever wished he had not come up with that idea.
Lord, your generosity towards us is unrivalled. We thank you for your courage and pray we are worthy of your sacrifice. Amen
