Once Upon a Time

by Berni Dymet

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

The other morning, I received this e-mail that really tickled my fancy.

It was kind of like this folksy, little postcard - with an old lady and a little girl sitting on her lap. And the little girl says, "Granny, do all fairytales begin with ‘Once Upon a Time?'"

"No darling" says the grandmother. "There's a whole series of them that begin ‘If elected, I promise.' "

I guess we can all relate to that. Politicians soon discover that there's a big difference between the euphoria of the election campaign and the realities of delivering once they're elected. Delivering is hard work. There are a whole bunch of things and people and situations that conspire against us delivering.

You and I - we both know what it is to over promise and under deliver.

And maybe - at least for me - that's why it was so hard to comprehend that God delivered me His Son to give me eternal life.

I mean to look at this carpenter from Nazareth - well He promised so little, and yet He delivered so much.
