|"God knit her together in her mother's womb. |
She is deep in the trenches, but she is fearfully and wonderfully made."
In some parts of the world, when the tide comes in from the ocean, it brings with it thousands of starfish. Then the tide recedes and leaves thousands of them behind on the shore. Many of these starfish cannot make it back to the safety of the water before the sun comes up and dries them out.
A man was walking along the shore one day and witnessed this sight. He stared at all the starfish, saddened that so many would die.
Then he saw a young boy walking in the other direction. The lad would stop and pick up a starfish and throw it into the ocean. He continued to do this, picking up one after the other and throwing them back into the water.
"Why are you doing that?" the man asked the boy. "Don't you realize there are miles and miles of shore? You're wasting your time. You'll never make a difference."
The boy simply picked up another starfish and hurled it back into the ocean. As it landed, he said, "I made s difference for that ONE."
Do you see it? ONE by ONE, you and I can make a difference!
Let's not let what we can't do stop us from doing what we can.
"God made them. God loves them.
Jesus wants to be their friend forever"
