for the greater good . . .

Romans 8:28

I am a big fan of NCIS and I love watching the marathons on Monday’s.  My favorite characters are Leroy Jethro Gibbs and Ziva David.  They both have baggage.  At the end of one of the shows Gibbs is sitting at a booth talking to his wife and daughter (who are both dead).  They are telling Gibbs their death was for the greater good.  Had they not died he would not have helped so many people.

Romans 8:28 comes to mind when I think about the scene.  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. NIV  That’s a hard pill to swallow!  All things!  Not SOME or FEW but ALL!

  • The mom who died from breast cancer.  All things work together for good to them that love God . . .
  • The couple who lost their child.  All things work together for good to them that love God . . .
  • The man who was fired from his job.  All things work together for good to them that love God . . .
  • The house that will not sell.  All things work together for good to them that love God . . .

Yes!  All things!  Now it’s your turn!  Repeat after me!  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.  Again!  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. One more time!  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.  There are some things we will never understand until we get to heaven!  So, hang in there!  God will take care of you!  He will walk before you and slay your enemy!  He will walk beside you and hold your hand!  He will walk behind you and catch you when you fall!  He will carry you when you cannot walk!  Proverbs 3:5-6

All God’s children said . . . .
