Not too many do the right thing. But when people do so, it is the most refreshing thing that one can see. A guy in the neighborhood goes regularly around the streets picking up litter that uncaring people throw down. He does it not for fame nor hope that neighbors will pay him money or give him some other kind of honor. No, he does it for the love of what is right. Trash belongs in a trash can, not on street corners. And since no one else is doing anything about it, he does so himself. When asked why he keeps doing this when no one else seems to care; he said because Jesus teaches for Christians to be the light of the world. Matt 5:14-16. It is his hope that litters, will see him cleaning up and that their conscience will cause them to do the right thing and stop littering.
If you don’t believe in God, now would be a great time to start. At this point, everyone should know what happened on the worlds stage, as the rescue of those boys unfolded in that Thailand cave.
Because the situation was hopeless, it is called a miracle that everyone escaped. We say, yes, a miracle indeed; but miracles cannot happen without a greater force behind them. The great force is the Lord Himself.
God worked though those divers to send a message to the world; that He exists and that man should serve Him. The word of God teaches that the prayers of the righteous does much good and it was the prayers of the righteous for those boys which gave us the results. James 5:16.
So call it a miracle, but make sure you give thanks to the Lord for it.

A relationship with God, doesn’t just happen. It must be created. Listen as the scriptures teach how we begin our walk with God. “It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. “ John 6:45
We are sinners and sin separates man from God. Rom 3:23. John 8:24. Isa 59:1-4. But man can begin new by obeying the word of God. Once man has a relationship with the Lord, he can pray, he can have God help with problems, he can be called a child of God. 2 Cor 6:17-18. John 1:12-13. Until we do so, we aren’t in a relationship with God. 2 Tim 2:19.
There are some who don’t want a church that teaches the word of God. Those people want a church that makes them feel good and tells them what they want to hear. In other words, a don’t rock the boat kind of church; a whatever and anything goes kind of church. Such people aren’t concern about the word of God. Such people have never given any thought that God demands certain things. John
Instead, it is all about what they want and what they expect. Listen to the scripture as it warns about such persons.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 New International Version (NIV) For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
Does this describe you? Be honest with yourself; for it is your soul at stake. If we fail to have an open mind toward the word of God. We cannot be saved. 2 Tim 2.16-26.
