CSI Las Vegas

There's lessons to be learnt even from CSI!

In one episode, an illegitimate baby of a dead teenage mother was delivered at a crime scene through a caesarean performed by Dr Al Robbin, head county coroner of the LVPD. Dr Robbin made a profound statement about the  baby:
"It is not how you come into the world that counts but how you live it."

I thought for a moment that it is quite a Christian statement as well. While we sometimes may bemoan our upbringing, or the family background we come from, these are not excuses for not making something out of our life. As Christians, we are children of the living God and there's no reason why God will not make something good out of our life, far better beyond even our expectations. I find some people fatalistic about their circumstances, that they are powerless to change them and resign to the fact that whatever will be  will be. That's not the Christian attitude!

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

So whatever your background, thank God you are where you are today and the days ahead will be better, because you have God on your side!
