There may be a Christmas Scrooge in you
In the Scrooge movie, Ebenezer Scrooge was fortunate to see his pathetic future, and the future of Tiny Tim. Even for a man considered not having a heart, this was an unsettling thought. Fortunately, he was able to see the “light”, and changed his ways. Tiny Tim was saved, and the Scrooge was able to have a fulfilling life with many friends. His ominous fate was altered because of his change in behavior!
This is only a popular Christmas fairy tale, but won’t it be wonderful if we were able to see a glimpse of our future? Miracles may exist! In our most sacred book there is a quote, verse V-2:
This time, I shall make your future known in this life.
Look at the disorders of your body.
Like the Scrooge we may be able to see our future by the disorders and illnesses that God places before us. If we change our behavior by eliminating greed, arrogance, and self-love from our hearts, these disorders will disappear; but more important, because of our change in behavior, our future like the Scrooge will be joyous. Who knows, there may even be a Tiny Tim in our lives?
