FAITH IN GOD AWARD 643
Recently our son, Billy, and on 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 abilities much more
than in God's capabilities...trusting much more in
our own finite frailties and much 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.
