Amazing Sabbath...eventful day!
One conversation that tickled me:
Me: "Is your dad on an emergency flight?"
Twelve year old friend: "Yea, he flies hearts, livers, and brains, stuff like that for transplants."
Me: "Probably not brains."
Friend: "Hmm, well maybe not brains so much."
Me: " I don't really think they do brain transplants." (I'm trying to think this through logically:)
Friend: "Oh they do!"
Me: "Maybe it's more like brain surgery."
Friend: " No they do brain transplants."
Me: "Well, let's think of it this way. If something happened to me but my brain was saveable and you needed a new brain, so they put my brain in you. Would you really be you?"
We both concluded that brain transplants would be a slightly difficult task...highly uncommon indeed!
What a strange and complicated world we live in.
It did remind me of how great a miracle God's "brain transplant" on me really is. The changing of my sinful character to become like His and His righteousness imputed to me...It is a miracle of grace.
