To All UK Fans

By Dr. Ronnie Wolfe

To all UK fans: 

I can practically see you, licking your sores today. I heard the bad news on the TV this morning, and my heart immediately went out to you in thinking I must say, "I'm sorry for your loss," but that did not seem to be appropriate.

Rather, I am saying "You should have known," or something in that direction. "They" have a saying that, "You can't win 'em all," and that seems to apply to this situation.

I was saved from all of this hurt and crying. I don't cry much. I almost cried when Zeva left NCIS and when The Mentalist came to its final episode; but I refrained from crying. 

Certainly we all should weep as the Lord wept at Lazarus' tomb. We should weep as he wept over Jerusalem. He wept, no doubt, due to those who did not understand him, who did not have a spiritual insight into his teachings. He wept because Israel had rejected her Messiah; and we should weep for those who do not know Jesus intimately through faith in his shed blood, his death, his burial, and his resurrection, realizing that he alone is God in the flesh, and the only way to Heaven is through him.

Let's cry a little more over lost sinners!

This is so true, Bro. Wolfe. I remember a preacher once saying that you can tell so much about a person by what makes them laugh and what makes them cry.
Crying over sports or anything so temporal tells a lot about a person!
