Most of us we grew up into families that could not have made it without the first aid kit. There was hardly a time during those years that we were not giving attention to cuts and bruises, but we survived.
Some of us because of our different experiences we have scars, and I want to believe that all of us have scars, and those scars have stories. Others have scars from their primary school bicycle accidents, others from hiking, others we got them from sports activities, others from car accidents.
They are all external scars which we recall adventures, sad and happy times, but our internal emotional scars bring up much different feelings. However scars show the healing power of God. When you got a cut, your body immediately goes to work to heal it. Once the body has finished its work and wound has closed, there is a scar. The scar is the evidence of closure-no more blood just skin.
God words are first Aid kit for our Souls, and John first letter provides us with effective truth “if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
It is my prayer that during this difficult and trying times, when our society opt for a “doom” as a healing power. We remind ourselves as Christians that, God first aid kit has a healing balm. The healing balm that can heal the wounds of division, racism, poverty, abuse of women and children.
