Our Little Man – Joshua

They say, he is going to be a mighty strong man one day.

It is an interesting thought indeed……

A man as strong as King David, was once as tiny as this little man before me…
And a man as wise as King Solomon, was once as simple as this little cooing baby…
Even Jesus, the son of God, was once a sweet little helpless babe as he, my son…

How amazing the design of God is,
The seasons, the power of nature,
And the mystery of life…

If you think further, or say to the negative side,
A man as cruel and as evil as Hitler, was also once as innocent as this cute little baby….
With little fingers and little toes….and yet can shed blood of millions
With inviting and pure lovely smiles…..and yet a heart full of hatred

How can this be…?

Sad. Unbelievable. Horrible. Tragedy….
Just because of one word, one little word….as simple as ‘sin’.

My son, do grow up one day as a mighty strong man!
Be strong enough by God’s grace and love!
Be strong enough to hate sin!
Be strong enough to love even your enemies!

And be strong enough, to be a warrior, that fights for the glory of God!

Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
