EVERYWHERE around us we hear and read about statistics, but do they always give us the true picture?
On Monday evening England played Spain and if we did not know the score but looked only at the statistics we would assume the home team were winners by many goals.
But, England with only 27 per cent of the play and with just five shots at the goal as against Spain’s 23, ran out winners 3-2
So, when we have all these statistics from the ‘so called’ experts can we really believe what they are telling us?
In fact when we look closer for ourselves, the truth will often come out differently.
When Jesus Christ was here on earth two thousand years ago, those who thought they knew better, because they saw him as only a carpenter from Nazareth and not as the Son of God, ridiculed him.
The people who wanted to know the truth flocked to hear him and see the miracles he did.
Although he is the Son of God, he was not born to royalty but to a humble working class couple, which allowed him to see for himself, what it was really like to live in that environment.
Today he does not look at worldly statistics but at the reality of where we are and he really does know what it is like for us to live now, because he has been there himself.
