Freddy and the Lord
stood by to observe a

zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th
inning with two outs. They continued to

Love swung at the first
pitch and hit a single,
"Love never fails."
The next batter was named
Faith, who also got
works with Love.
The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom.
Satan wound up and threw
the first pitch.
Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass:
Ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom
walked because he never swings at what

The bases were now loaded. The Lord then
turned to Freddy and told him He was now

doesn't look like much!"

Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up
and fired his first pitch. To the shock of

continued over the fence . . . for a home run!
The Lord's team wn!
The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew why
Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom
could get on
base but couldn't win
the game. Freddy
he didn't know why.
explained, "If your love, faith and
wisdom had won the game, you
you had done it
by yourself. Love, Faith and
Wisdom will get you on base
can get you Home:
'For by Grace are you
saved, it is a gift of God; not of works, lest
any man should boast."
84:11,"For the Lord God is
a sun and
shield; the Lord will give
grace and glory;
no good thing will He withhold from those
who walk uprightly."
an easy test; you score 100 or zero. It's
your choice. If you aren't ashamed to do
please follow the directions.
Jesus said, "If you
of me, I will be ashamed of you
before my Father."
this on, if you mean it.
><, I do Love God. He is my source of
existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning
each and everyday. Without Him, I am
but with him:
"I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me."
This is the simplest test . . If you Love
and are not ashamed
of all the great things
He has done
for you. Send this to a few friends.
Some friends come into our lives
and quickly go, Others stay for a while and leave footprints
hearts that last forever.....
A Life with Love will have some thorns
but a Life without Love
will have no roses.
