God’s Word of Welcome - April 18, 2016

Whoever—God’s wonderful word of welcome! We lose much in life—jobs and chances, and we lose at love. We lose youth and idealism. We lose much, but we never lose our place on God’s whoever list.

I love to hear my wife say “whoever.” Sometimes it’s my favorite fragrance wafting from the kitchen…strawberry cake! I follow the smell like a bird dog follows a trail. Yet I’ve learned to still my fork until Denalyn gives clearance. “Who is it for?” I ask. She might say, “It’s for a friend. Max don’t touch it.” Or she might throw open the door of delight and say, “Whoever!”

And since I qualify as a whoever, I say “yes!” I hope you will too. Not to the cake, but to God. No status too low. No hour too late. No place too far. However. Whenever. Wherever. Whoever includes you. . .forever!
