Billy Graham Daily Devotional – Chosen By God

Modern writers depict the pessimism of our time and
many of them throw up their hands in despair and say,
“There is no answer to man’s dilemma.” Hemingway
once said, “I live in a vacuum that is as lonely as a radio
tube when the batteries are dead, and there is no
current to plug into.”

Eugene O’Neill in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”
typifies the philosophical attitude of our day. He says,
“Life’s only meaning is death.” I say to Hemingway and
to O’Neill, who have already gone on, “There is more to
life than death.” There is more to life than a radio tube
that needs a place to plug into. Jesus taught us the
dignity and importance of being a person. God put us on
this earth for a purpose, and our purpose is fellowship
with God and to glorify God.

Prayer for the day: Loving Father, Your love for me
transcends the hopelessness of this life and gives me
the purpose I so desperately need.
