Judy and I shop at the Ralphs grocery on Old Grove Road and the Walmart on Marron Road, Oceanside, California. Because we like the people in both stores. We exchange greetings when we enter, hugs with several and repartee with customers, employees and cashiers.
The people make the difference.
Think of Bible people who have made a difference: Adam and Eve, for example. Our common parents. He the handsomest man ever, she the peerless beauty. Nobody ever looked that good again. All without make-up, ladies, and without body-building buff, men.
To this writer, other names naturally follow: Abraham, Joseph in Egypt, Moses, Joshua, Deborah, David, Solomon and those GREAT prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel.
But only as a sampling of many more. For with the sacred writer, we say, “I do not have time to tell about...” et al, et al, so many of God’s great people of old Hebrews 11:33.
In the next blog, consider a few of the kind of people with whom we’ll share the new heaven and earth in new bodies and minds. Each kind will make a difference in our lives even then. End Part I
