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 he acted like so many of us. God gave us this beautiful world, air to breathe, food to eat, a brain to think and best of all, He provided, the way to heaven. Jesus once said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, but we, in our self-righteousness shout, “All by myself. All by myself.” Jesus added, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” We need Him.
