No Kidding

Grandparents had a kaleidoscope toy that you looked through like Capt. Kidd’s pirate telescope.  At one end were chips of varying shapes and colors which, as you rolled it, changed places like a high-stepping band’s halftime formations.

The corona virus of 2020 goose-stepped across our world.  Each of us, like our toy kaleidoscope, views the crisis through a different lens.  But dread, danger and death pollute everyone, causing many to wonder, “Where is God when we need Him most?”

David, the Goliath slayer, wrote, “The Lord is my best Friend and my Shepherd. … He restores and revives my life. Lord, even when Your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness … I’ll never be lonely for You are near. … So why would I fear the future?  … when my life is through, I’ll return to Your glorious presence to be forever with You!”

QUESTION … “All kidding aside, what must I do to be saved?”
