"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began,

"I'll open up your heart."

"You'll find JESUS there," the boy interrupted.

The surgeon looked up, annoyed. "I'll open up your

heart," he continued, "to see how much

damage has been done."

"But when you open up my heart, you'll

find JESUS in there."

The surgeon looked to the parents, who sat

quietly. "When I see how much damage has

been done, I'll sew your heart and chest back

up and I'll plan what to do next."

"But you'll find JESUS in my heart. The Bible

says HE lives there. The hymns all say HE

lives there. You'll find HIM in my heart."

The surgeon had enough. "I'll tell you what

I'll find in your heart. I'll find damaged muscle,

low blood supply, and weakened vessels. And

I'll find out if I can make you well."


"You'll find JESUS there too. HE lives there."

The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes

from the surgery,"...damaged aorta, damaged

pulmonary vein, widespread muscle degeneration.

No hope for transplant, no hope for cure.

Therapy: painkillers and bed rest.

Prognosis: death within one year."

He stopped the recorder, but there was more

to be said. "Why?" he asked aloud. "Why did

YOU do this? YOU'VE put him here; YOU'VE

put him in this pain; and YOU'VE cursed him

to an early death. Why?"

The LORD answered and said, "The boy,

MY lamb, was not meant for your flock for long,

for he is part of MY flock, and will forever be.

Here, in MY flock, he will feel no pain, and will

be comforted as you cannot imagine. His parents

will one day join him here, and they will know

peace, and MY flock will continue to grow."

The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was

hotter. "YOU created that boy, and YOU created

that heart. He'll be dead in months. Why?"

The LORD answered, "The boy, MY lamb,

shall return to MY flock, for he has done his

duty; I did not put MY lamb with your flock

to loose him, but to retrieve another lost lamb."

The surgeon wept.

The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the

boy's parents sat across from him. The boy

awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open

my heart?" "Yes," said the surgeon.

"What did you find?" asked the boy.

"I found JESUS there," said the surgeon.

Idiots in the Room

"If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up?" said the sarcastic teacher. After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet. "Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?" enquired the teacher with a sneer. "Well, actually I don't," said the student, "but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself."
