Love Worth Finding - January 2

 

January 2

Giving the Devil His Due

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” - Matthew 6:13

Mike Kolen, who played linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, told this story once. “When I graduated from Auburn University, Coach Shug Jordan asked me to do some scouting for him. I said, ‘Sure coach, what kind of man do you need?’”

“Coach said, ‘You know the guy you can knock down and he stays there?’ I said, ‘Sure!’ Coach said, ‘We don’t need him. You know the guy you can knock down, he gets up, you knock him down again, and he gets up?’ I said, ‘Yes! You want him?’ ‘No,’ said Coach, ‘I want the guy that’s knocking everybody down. That’s the guy I want.’ ”

I am grateful that Jesus picks us up when we are knocked down. But wouldn’t you like to do a little knocking down of the devil for a change? You can if you will learn to pray, “Lord, lead me not into temptation, but keep me from evil.”
