Feb 20 – All By Myself

Author Max Lucado, in his book ‘Outlive Your Life tells the amusing story of his three year old nephew Lawson, who wanted to play some basketball. The basketball was too large and the basket too high. So Lucado lowered the basket and held Lawson high enough so he could roll the ball over the rim. Then the little fellow in his excitement, held his hands high and shouted, “All by myself. All by myself.” It was a bit of an overstatement. But so like many of us – God gave us this beautiful world, air to breathe, food to eat, a brain to function and best of all, He provided, through His Son , the way to heaven. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the Life.” But we, in our foolish pride and self-righteousness shout- “all by myself- all by myself.” But it isn’t, for though Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, the same verse adds, “ No one comes to the Father except through me.”
