“Mom and Dad, I’m coming home, but I would like to bring a friend with me. He stepped on a land mine and lost an arm and a leg.” Those were the words of a young soldier, returning from a tour of duty. The parents told him that it would be impossible for them to accommodate a handicapped person. It would be too great a burden. They heard nothing more until they were informed that their son was dead, an apparent suicide. When the grief -stricken parents went to identify their son, they were shocked to learn that he had only one arm and one leg. Thankfully, though we are all broken spiritually, “there is “none righteous”, God loves us unconditionally. Paul wrote, “God commends His love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Nobody is too bad for the Lord to forgive.
