WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT TO HAVE A COUPLE OF BLANKS?

24 Aug

My wife and I are avid Scrabble players.  We’re both teachers.  She’s an English teacher and I’m a graduate professor.  When we play Scrabble, we both kind of cheat (“Just checking my email, Dear!”).  We like the game so much that we actually named our dog Scrabble!

Did you read the story about the young man who was playing in the World Championship of Scrabble Tournament?  See his story here.

Apparently, this young man palmed two blank tiles, which would be a GREAT ADVANTAGE in forming words!  He was caught — and disqualified.

It would be great in life to have two blank tiles, wouldn’t it?  You could make them anything you want to.

I think the gospel is kind of like getting a whole bunch of blank tiles that God can use in our lives.  What do you think?

    Larry, You do not expect me to agree with your thinking! Your God would not need any “blank tiles” if he wants to interfere in our lives and he would not need the gospel either.

    John: Again it’s good to hear from you. Yes, John, I DO expect you to agree with my thinking — if you are open and IF I provide good answers to your questions! Of course, I’d love for you to come over to the Jesus side! That would be great! I don’t believe God “needs” anything, not even our love. But He deserves our lives and our love and our trust. By “blank tiles” I was kind of referring to opportunities to start over — and that’s really what the doctrine of Christian forgiveness is about. Aren’t you glad when your wife forgives you — and you can start over? Blessings. Larry
