Dec 13 – World Fell Apart

A little girl came to her mother, gave her four small pieces of hardened clay and said, “Mom, my world fell apart.” The mother realizing the child had made a globe of clay, quickly “fixed” the world by taping it together. “But Mom,” the child said,, “it still has holes and cracks in it.” And often, when our “world falls apart as a result of financial ruin, loss of employment, serious illness or the death of a loved one, we attempt, to tape it together again. But the cracks and holes are still there. That’s because only God can fix our world. He forgives, takes away our guilt, comforts, and gives us peace. When we accept Christ into our lives, We experience what Paul spoke of when he wrote, “…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”
