There is much to appreciate in this world that we live in, breath taking landscape, rolling hills, mountains, valleys, and most of all, the people who leave an impact upon our lives.
On June 3, 2016 the world lost one of those people, Muhammad Ali, aka Cassius Clay, died at the age of 74. Ali a great boxer indeed and revered in his sport, proclaimed himself as “The Greatest of All Time”. At the conclusion of his career, Ali’s record stood at 56 wins and 5 losses. Ali fought in the ring to obtain an earthly crown, a belt worn around his waist.
For the Christian, we fight the good fight of faith not to win an earthly crown but a spiritual crown. By the way, our God has a winning record; ALL Wins and Zero Losses. God appeared to Moses in Exodus 34:5-7 and he proclaimed himself as The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
Again, all wins and zero losses.
Live and be a blessing!
