Weekend – It’s Never Too Late
By Phillip Hamm
Christy and I married young. I was still in college and she was in her first year of teaching. I was going to school full time and working a part time job. I was trying to be a good husband and would help with things around our little apartment. Sometimes I would get dinner going, run the vacuum, and even do the laundry. Well sort of.
We didn’t have a washer and dryer in the apartment, and we had to lug the laundry down several flights of stairs to use the coin operated machines in the basement. I had never really done much laundry in my life and even if I had, boys clothes are very different than girls clothes. So, I knew very little about separating darks and whites; using cold versus hot water; and simply not drying certain articles of clothing. After ruining one too many favorite pieces of her wardrobe, I was ultimately banned from the laundry room. Or, at least that’s what I was hoping would happen. My wife instead, being way to wise for her age, painstakingly showed me how to do laundry the right way. It seemed I just couldn’t mess up bad enough to get out of it.
In preparation for worship on Sunday, read Genesis 29. Notice all the things Jacob does to mess up. But he can’t mess up bad enough to ruin God’s plan.
Prepare for Worship
As you prepare your heart for worship Sunday morning, read Psalm 150.
