Time to Stretch

I'm like most folks and easily feel good about the justice of the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

But I'm going to try to stretch myself spiritually and remember that I should grieve he rejected the redemption that our Father in Heaven has offered to all the lives He created. The life of Bin Laden, despite his evil, was still one God longed to redeem and be reconciled to.

So, while I am thrilled that for the surviving families of the 9/11 victims that a measure of satisfaction hopefully can be felt, I must try to remember I am an Easter Christian every day and need to pray for ALL to accept that Christ my Savior died and was resurrected for them.
