Nov 6 – Wait For Me Daddy

The famous photo “Wait For Me Daddy” shows Private Jack Bernard saying goodbye to his son Warren Bernard, 5, as he leaves for the Second World War in New Westminster B.C, in 1940. It illustrates what, next to the loss of life and serious injuries is probably the worst result of war- separation with all its heartache and pain for families. And much is said in the Bible about separation, not only between humans, but also between the Creator and us. Clearly the Heavenly Father created us to be in close fellowship with Him, not to be separated from Him. Isaiah of old explained why so many are not in a proper relationship with our Maker. When he warned, “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you…” As unpopular as the word sin is, we live in a world that is full of examples of its reality and its presence. So it is heart-warming to read James invitation-“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
