In our economic culture dimes aren't worth much. But in life they are worth a lot. I am constantly amazed how our lives can change "on a dime."
One minute life is tranquil, safe and calm, the next, full of anxiety, stress and worry. One event can change a life. One event can change a nation.
Yesterday a Battle Creek police officer was shot and killed not far from where I live. It was a beautiful day yesterday. The officer probably thought of what he was going to do last evening. Maybe take a walk with his wife. Play with his kids. Go watch a movie. But all of that changed "on a dime."
Relationships can change "on a dime." In a moment of chaotic emotional insanity, each of us can ruin a lifelong friendship, whether it be through anger or a word that was spoken.
Our health can "change on a dime." A person goes in for a physical, finds out that he has a life terminating disease, and walks out thankful for the one day that he has.
Why not give your life to God today, "on a dime." Let today be a lifechanging event in your life.
For when my life changes, "on a dime," I want someone who never changes. He's the same yesterday, today and forever. His name - Jesus.
