Crossing The Border (Proverbs 18:10)

It was a horrific and tragic story. Fifty three migrants died in an overheated abandoned truck on a backroad leading from Mexico into the United States. To date, this is the worst human smuggling incident in the history of the United States.


The issue was politicized by all sides of the political arena. The reasons that migrants would choose to risk their lives to cross the border and enter the United States are complex and individualized. One cannot indiscriminately lump all migrants in the same category anymore than one could lump all people who seek to leave the United States. However, nearly all would agree that migrants are seeking a better life in the United States, one that could not be found in their native country. They counted the cost of their decision and decided that it was worth the risk, even if it meant their own lives. 

The desire to seek a better life for ourselves and others is one of our strongest motivators. It is the same for our spiritual lives. If we knew a place existed where all of our problems would be solved, where there would be no more death, sorrow, crying or pain, wouldn’t we risk everything to get there? Does such a place exist?

Indeed, there is!

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe. 

Proverbs 18:10 (NASB)

A relationship with God is not empty promises and unfulfilled dreams. It is real and here, available to all who confess and repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Don’t hesitate to do this. Run, don’t walk, to the Lord. He is a strong tower who will protect and save us from the evils of this world.

Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
