ISN’T it amazing when we want to do something, there will always be somebody who will be against it?
Whether it’s in business, sport or even family situations, there will be those who will be in opposition.
They call it democracy, which at most times is a good thing.
This week I read of the Tottenham fan that had found the wallet of a Liverpool fan in a taxi in Madrid after the Champions League game last Saturday. The wallet was precious to the Liverpool fan because not only did it contain his money, driving licence etc. but the last letter that his wife had written to him just before her death in January this year.
Hours before they had been on opposing sides but the lost wallet brought them together as friends.
Eight days ago the worldwide church celebrated Ascension Day when we remembered the time that Jesus Christ went back to heaven.
On earth Jesus had faced much opposition but he had faithfully carried out the will of his Father, God.
Someone has said that when he got back to heaven the Angels questioned the fact that he had left his work on earth to be carried out by a group unschooled individuals. Of course no one knows if that was true or not.
Two thousand years later the Christian Church worldwide has millions of members, which shows that Jesus really did know what he was doing and it was right to leave the work to his disciples.
