A college student became friends with an elderly man who lived in the same boarding house. The older man was a retired music teacher. Every morning, they had a routine that they would go through. The student would greet his friend by saying, “What’s the good news?”
The former music teacher would pick up his tuning fork, tap it against the side of his wheelchair, and proclaim, “That’s middle C! It was middle C yesterday; it will be middle C tomorrow; it will be middle C a thousand years from now. The tenor upstairs sings flat, the piano across the hall is out of tune, but my friend, this is middle C!”
In a world in which many things had changed, the elderly gentleman had latched onto one thing that remained a constant in his life.
For Christians, the one thing that will never change is Jesus.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”—Hebrews 13:8.
