FAITH IN GOD 643
Recently our son, Billy, and one of his friends,
Charley Grogan, earned and received a Cub
Scout "Faith in God" award by fulfilling certain
church duties and requirements.
While basking in the natural pride parents
should have on such an occasion, we also reflected
on the possibility of one day having to stand
before God and declaring whether we would be
worthy of a "Faith in God" award.
We suspect that many of us who claim to be
Christians have staked our lives on our own weak
finite frailties while trusting less in God's infinite
power and wisdom.
Faith in God. Perhaps we all have sufficient
for our needs...We simply need to utilize and
exhibit what we have.
