The other day I saw a bowl full of folded-up, multi-colored scraps of paper on a co-worker’s desk.
I picked one up, read it, and saw it was an “inspirational” saying from Keanu Reeves. There was another one from Erica Jong. And a third from Tony Robbins.
And a fourth one which quoted the Lord Jesus. It was part of Matthew 19:26: “…,but with God all things are possible.”
Now, all things are possible with God. He is God, after all. But, in context, Jesus is speaking about salvation – not having a good day at work.
The words of Christ lumped together with an actor’s, a novelist’s, and a motivational speaker’s.
