Charlie Brown and Lucy are leaning over the proverbial fence speaking to one another…..
Charlie Brown: “All it would take to make me happy is to have someone say he likes me.”
Lucy: “Are you sure?”
Charlie Brown: “Of course I’m sure!”
Lucy: “You mean you’d be happy if someone merely said he or she likes you? Do you mean to tell me that someone has it within his or her power to make you happy merely by doing such a simple thing?”
Charlie Brown: “Yes! That’s exactly what I mean!”
Lucy: “Well, I don’t think that’s asking too much. I really don’t. [Now standing face to face, Lucy asks one more time] But you’re sure now? All you want is to have someone say, ‘I like you, Charlie Brown,’ and then you’ll be happy?”
Charlie Brown: “And then I’ll be happy!”
Lucy: [Lucy turns and walks away saying] “I can’t do it!”
What Lucy can not do, sinful as she is, God does.
What Charlie Brown needs, lost and alone as he is, God supplies. A God Provide
God loves you and is telling you today, “He loves you!” “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son.”
