The Scars to Prove It

hockey-clip-art--hockey-clipart-3Former hockey player Phil Daigle has this to say when people ask him if he has all his teeth: “I’ve got a good dentist and I’ve got enough stitches in my face to knit a sweater.”

Hockey players take a lot of punishment in the game they play.

In the same way, Christians can take a beating–metaphorically, if not literally—as they follow Jesus. Let’s wear all of our scars proudly!

“From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.”—Galatians 6:17.

By the way, let’s never forget that Jesus received his own scars as he lived and died for us.

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”—Isaiah 53:5.
