Starving For Good News

By Lynette Scribner

I saw this gentleman, his name is Tim, in Boston’s Logan airport with the sister he’d been visiting. It appeared he was both deaf and blind, as I observed her signing into his hand for him to feel her words. When he came aboard the plane he had been assigned the middle seat of my row.

In The News

I don’t normally watch TV much less the MTV Music Awards but I saw on the news, Chris Pratt, star in the new Jurassic World Movie, was awarded the Generation Award last Saturday.  His acceptance speech had some wise words of wisdom including:

“Jonah went 2500 miles out the way running from God. Talk about a wrong turn! The good news? God gives a second chance to turn around.” ~ Kurt Wallace

You would think a life-threatening sea storm and a few days in a fish’s belly would shake some sense into a person. Yet that wasn’t the case with Jonah. The final paragraphs of his story reveal a vengeful prophet who obeyed the Lord but allowed his heart to remain on the run.

Jonah paid a big price for running from God. Perhaps you have a habit, a plan, or a current course and you know it defies God’s will. Have you considered the cost?

There are consequences for wrongdoing. The Lord is holy and righteous, and allowing people to get away with sin is simply incompatible God’s plan for you. What’s more, the price for following your own will is high.
