Picture Moves, But…

tragicI do NOT wish to start a discussion regarding immigration; and will delete any comments that so do.

This photo (and I am assuming it is legit) records a tragedy; and rightfully has gone viral.

Regardless of what did or did not lead to the death of these two, it is horrific.

And we shudder. Perhaps weep. Maybe get mad. Wonder what we can do about it! Prayerfully we pray…


“And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25.46)

By God’s amazing grace I am in the latter half of that sobering sentence, uttered by the Lord Jesus.

Do I weep? Do I get furious? Do I wonder what more I can do? Do I really pray?

Who have I prayed for…by name…this day that they would come to Christ and salvation?

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
