CLARITY – 7-5-18 The Lost Boys

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-5-18

 

The Lost Boys

 

What’s Happening:  “With apologies to Peter Pan, the Thai soccer team (12 boys aged 11-16; and their coach) that were the ‘lost boys,’ is now found…but that’s where the problems begin…to get them out? Teach them all basic scuba skills (some don’t even swim) or wait until the monsoon season is over (October!) Some parents swear their boys will never go near a cave or water again (https://www.yahoo.com/news/rescuers-pump-more-water-lower-levels-inside-cave-030227372.html). ‘What we worry most is the weather’ Provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said, ‘We can’t risk having the flood back into the cave.’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “In a cave? Underwater? That gives me the heebeegeebies!”

 

Biblical Response:  “Me, too! Of course, what they need right now are cool heads and prayers. I’m glad my part is the prayer! What would I tell those boys..through their coach (I don’t speak Thai)? ‘It’s always darkest just before the dawn.’ Or maybe more appropriately; ‘The lowest ebb is the turning of the tide.’”

 

“Christians? We are not unfamiliar with seemingly impossible situations. That’s where faith comes in (Matt, 17:20). And, as far as being ‘lost’ is concerned (Luke 15:32), like Daniel Boone said when asked by a reporter if he’d ever been lost: “Nope…just a might bewildered.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help the lost to find their way…if that takes a miracle, I know I’ve come to the right place; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
