Perspective on Problems

I want you to meet Miguel and Maria Restrepo and their dog Blackie. For the past twenty years they’ve made their home in…the sewer!
Their home is an underground 10’x7′ space. They’ve built concrete walls to separate themselves from rest of the sewer system. Miguel says, “We live in an apartment. For me it is an apartment.” Their “apartment” has a kitchen, closet, radio, TV, fan, and a tile floor.
He never complains when asked about his living condition and consistently rejects offers from social workers to move into a shelter. Why? Miguel says, “I live better than the president. He has lots of problems and I don’t have any.”
Kind of puts Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:25,33, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. But seek His first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you,” into perspective, doesn’t it? Your problems are never too big for your God to handle. Why not head to Him today rather than your drug of choice?
