A Box of Tissues and God Almighty
What if all God had to offer was a box of tissues? You know, like that commercial where the man sits out in the street and people come and bear their soul only to be sent away with a tissue and a hug. That’s not much help is it?
God is much more serious than a box of tissues. He is more than a hug and a wave goodbye. He is the God who can actually do something about our troubled lives. That’s great news, because, the truth be told, we are in more trouble than we think.
God’s word says that there is none righteous, no not one. It also says that we should not fear man who can destroy our body, but God who can destroy both soul and body in hell. That’s a lot of trouble.
Thankfully, His word also says that He so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
And, by the way, He is like a box of tissues in this way: one day He will wipe away all our tears.
