Wherein a Portland (Oregon) policeman spares a mama duck and her two little quacks.
So I say, “Three cheers for Officer James of the Portland Police Bureau!”
Now three more cheers for Mr. Mark James.
And a whole bunch of quacks, honks, chirps, tweets, and cheeps.
Thank you, sir! And thank you for your service as well.
(And a note to the speeder: Dropping the ducks out to cover your tracks was good as a one-time trick. Slow down now!)
Tonight I heard that “sin has consequences.”
So do grace and love.
“Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20).
“Love covereth all sins” (Proverbs 10:12).
Sin, repented of and properly dealt with, needs no further review and regurgitation.
When we insist on consequences over grace and love, we sow for a bitter harvest.
I don’t wish that harvest on anyone. Especially on myself.
So which will matter most to me in my relationships with those who fail?
Let me allow grace and love to triumph in my heart!
“Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7).

Following an intense manhunt that caused chaos in Massachusetts and riveted the rest of the nation, law enforcement finally captured the second Boston Marathon bombing suspect on Friday night.
Following a short standoff in the backyard of a residence in a Watertown neighborhood, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody and arrested by Boston Police.

Praise God, the authorities have the young Tsarnaev! (Yes, young; he’s only six months older than my youngest!)
This afternoon I prayed for Dzhokar a bit. (And for others involved.) I prayed he would be captured alive and with no further deaths and mayhem. (Yes, yes — of course he deserves to die. That’s not the point of this post, OK?)
I prayed for this young fellow because The Authority — the King of Kings — still seeks for him. (Apparently, Allah presently has this alleged terrorist, aka Boston Bomber #2.)
The Good Shepherd looks for a lost lamb for whom He gave His life!
How many followers of Jesus will pray for this young man’s redemption?
If you are a Christian, will you pray for his salvation?
