Some Things Are Too Good To Be True

Johnny Hart drew the comic strip “BC.”  A believer, Hart often uses a Christian theme, especially at Easter.

One of my favorite “BC” comic strips had a caveman fishing who landed a big fish. When the fisherman landed the fish, the fish came off the hook and flounced and flipped on the land for a minute and promptly fell back into the water where he swam to his “school.” He immediately began to excitedly tell what he had seen.

It went like this:

“Hey, Guys! I just saw the world where the bright light lives!!”

“The colors up there are so brilliant, it takes your breath away!”

“And there’s no pressure up there–you can flip freely!”

Fish began to swim away because they couldn’t believe what the fish was saying.

“And. . .and. . .they got two-legged monsters!  With five tentacles. . .”

More fish swam away and finally the fish says to himself:

“On each fin.”

Some things simply seem too good to be true. The disciples on the road to Emmaus on Resurrection Sunday felt that way. When Jesus opened the Scripture to them and showed them his hands and feet, they still could not believe it because of joy and amazement (Luke 24:36-42).

A life that brings forgiveness, hope, peace, and joy may seem too good to be true, but it is what God gave us in Christ.

Let us be faithful to tell what we have seen, heard, and experienced.

Verse of the Day

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” — Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV)
