Can we really save ourselves? Is it really possible to “pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps” and fix all our problems? We can fix some things, but sometimes our solutions mess up life for someone else. Truly we need a Deliverer to save us from ourselves – but until the final redemption of the world, we still have an obligation to make things better for those around us.

  1. I loved your story this morning. Since you and the family are involved in foster care, I sat there and wondered if you knew the family. After awhile, I caught on. I told the story to the family and they were engrossed, waiting to here what happened to the homicidal youth😀
