Kate, David, and I are watching Scooby Doo tonight before bedtime. It's an episode that features the Harlem Globetrotters—Meadowlark Lemon, Curly, and Bobby Joe. If you don't recognize those names, that's alright. Scooby Doo goes back to the late 60s and early 70s. It is a classic!!
There are some stories and characters that never lose their appeal. They are, in other words, timeless. That's the case with the story of God's love. It is timeless. No matter how many times it is told, or how many different ways it is told, the story still connects with our lives. After the resurrection, Jesus told his disciples "You are witnesses!" (See Luke 24) In other words they had a story to tell.
We've got a story to tell as well. No one can tell it quite the way you are able to tell it.. When you get the chance to let someone see the difference God makes in your life, don't hesitate to be a witness.
Have a great week!!
