"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

Thought for Today: Molded By Trials

For the last several days, I have been reading The Cowboy and the Senorita: A Biography of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. It really is a fascinating book because it was written about two fascinating people. A couple days ago, I came across a very interesting quote contained in the book that I thought was well worth sharing.

Dale Evans, who had recently lost her two-year-old daughter, said these words: "God's love, His compassion, and unfailing kindness do not prevent Him from shaping us in ways that at the time are painful indeed. But the pain of the shaping is always matched by the Master Potter's skill in healing the wound."
