Pray for the Best, Prepare for the Worst

August 23, 2008
By The Rev. Robert L. Baer Sr., Beverly and Valley Bend United Methodist Churches

We live in a world of blessings far beyond what we can ever proclaim. We begin life as indestructible individuals who think of our life as eternal on this earth until illness brings us down. We forget to pray for the best and be thankful for God's joys he places all around us until that dreadful day when we find ourselves facing a catastrophic illness that we never dreamed could happen to us or our family member. We forget to give thanks for daily joys from God. We take things for granted. When you look around, what do you see? A home, a family, food on your table, children you love and who love you, friends, a church family who love you more than you will ever know. We pray but we forget the simple treasures God has blessed us with.
