A little Scottish lady worked hard taking in washing in order to send her son to the university.
When he came home for vacation, his mind was filled with doubts about God from the teaching he had received.
He did not want his mother to know about the change in his thinking. But she kept telling him how wonderful it was of God to save her, and how she knew she was saved.
Finally, he could not listen to more of her talk and said, “Mother, you do not seem to realize how small you are in this universe. If you lost your soul, God would not miss it at all. It would not amount to anything.”
She didn’t reply right away, but kept putting dinner on the table.
Finally she said, “I’ve been thinking about what you said. You’re right. My little soul does not amount to much; I would not lose much and God would not lose much.”
“But if He does not save me, He will lose more than I will. He promised if I would trust Jesus, He would save me. If He breaks His word, He will lose His reputation and mar His character.”
In Exodus 6, God says:
‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from slavery to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment.
He is the Lord your God. He will not forget you. He does what He does because He is who He is.
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
