The Lost Farm Child
At daybreak, the search party had gathered back at the main farmhouse. The father had a plan. He instructed them to join hands in a long line and begin to comb the field. After searching for quite some time, there came a sudden message down the line of people that the boy had been found. The man rushed to where his child was - but the child had died from exposure to the freezing temperatures of the night. As the grieving dad held his lifeless son in his arms, he looked up at those people that had been searching for the child and said sadly, "I only wish that we would have joined hands sooner."
The situation in our day is just as urgent as in this story. Young people are dying every day, physically and spiritually. They are waiting for the body of Christ to come together in a spirit of cooperation so they can be found by their heavenly Father.
