KOH2RVA: Day 13

Yesterday was my day off, and so I didn’t do much to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia. But God must have known that, and so, while I rested on the twelfth day he rolled up his sleeves and went to work, making one of the most beautiful days he has ever made–78 degrees and sunshine.

While my own efforts often seem small and ineffective, what God did yesterday touched every part of Metropolitan Richmond. It blessed both rich and poor, both young and old. Yesterday the most ragged and miserable citizen of our great city could tilt his face toward the sky and feel God’s love, could stick out his tongue and get a taste of heaven.

As I say sometimes about the Lord’s prayer, it ends the way it does in case we begin to have some success, in case heaven does come a little closer to earth and we imagine it’s because of something we have done. That’s when we need to remember: “Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.”

Amen.
