Fun Surprises From Jesus - “When Jesus came to Zacchaeus, He looked up and said, ‘Zacchaeus, come down. I would like to go to your house to visit you today.’” Luke 19:5 (Clear Word)

Years ago Jerry and I were taking a plane trip. We were flying Southwest airlines and our seats were not assigned. We were hoping to sit together, but unfortunately he was seated near the back of the plane and I had a middle seat to the front. The man to my right promptly fell asleep. The young woman to my left and I exchanged a few words of greeting and then we were silent.

Before long she reached into her backpack and pulled out a book and began to read. It was easy to see what she was reading: Steps to Christ by Ellen White. Finally, my curiosity could take the silence no longer and I said, “I have read that book and really enjoyed it.” She looked at me with a questioning look so I said, “I’m a Seventh-day Adventist,” and she smiled and said, “So am I.” She was a student at one of our colleges, and we enjoyed talking with each other. After awhile she went back to her reading, and I was thinking how nice that I had been seated next to her —one of Jesus’ fun little surprises.

I was walking – rather struggling to walk – into King Soopers grocery store one day. A lady came up behind me and wanted to know why I was having so much trouble walking. I explained to her that I have multiple sclerosis, and it affects my walking. She said, “I would like to pray for you.” So right in the front of the store with people coming and going all around us, she said the nicest prayer for me. I hope the whole experience made her day as much as it did mine. Another little fun surprise from Jesus!

Jesus was walking by the Pool of Bethesda one Sabbath day longing “to exercise His healing power and make every sufferer whole.” (Desire of Ages, p. 201) There was one man He could not pass by. The man had been suffering for 38 years, but the crippled man had no one to help him into the pool where he believed a miracle of healing would happen. Jesus walked by the man and said, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” The man believed Jesus and did just that. What a life-changing, special surprise from Jesus! (John 5:1-15)

Zacchaeus knew Jesus was coming to town, and he really wanted to see Him. But the crowd was large, and he was short so he climbed a tree for a better view. Before long he looked down into the face of Jesus. “Zacchaeus,” Jesus said, “you need to come down because I want to spend some time at your house today.” He scrambled down and spent the day with Jesus. What a nice surprise from Jesus! (Luke 19:1-10)

I love the story of Zacchaeus, not only for the forgiveness Jesus offered him, but because He wanted to spend time in his home – the same thing Jesus desires to do with each of us. Our first priority everyday should be to invite Jesus to spend the day with us. And who knows what fun surprises we might enjoy!

“Dig Another Well” - “If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength.” Proverbs 24:10 (NIV)

Jerry had brought home a memorial program for me to look at from a funeral he had worked for Adamson’s Funeral Home. The picture on the front showed a man with a very infectious smile. One would have thought he had lived a very blessed, happy life, but that was not the story of his life. He had actually been electrocuted when he was 49 years old, suffering severe burns which left him unable to work. Then some years later he had a bad stroke and had to start all over again to learn to speak and understand.

But apparently the real inspiration of this man’s life came from the fact that he accepted what came to him and just moved on with a good attitude and a big smile. There were words to a song printed on the back of the program that he had adopted as the theme of his life. The song is titled “Dig Another Well” by Paul Overstreet. It talks about a man living in the country and the devil came along and filled up all his wells with dirt. When the man went to get a drink, he got a dipper full of dirt. But the man simply picked up his shovel and dug another well. The song ends with the idea that “when the rains don’t fall and the crops all fail . . . don’t sit around waitin’ for a check in the mail. Just pick up the shovel and dig another well.” That had become the motto of this man’s life and the source of his happiness and big smile. He lived a full life into his late 80’s.

It did remind me of a story in the Bible about some wells. (Genesis 26:12-22) Isaac, because of a famine in the land, had gone to live in the land of the Philistines. The Lord had blessed him, and he had become very wealthy. The Philistines envied him so they filled up all his wells with dirt. So Isaac simply moved away to another area and reopened the wells that his father Abraham had dug. The story goes on about disputes over wells, but Isaac just moves on and continues to dig another well.

Of course, the moral to the story and the song is to not let the disappointments and setbacks in this life discourage us. One simply needs to accept what happens, “dig another well,” and move on. As the song says, “God blessed me once and He can do it again.”

! (2 Samuel 12)

Mrs. White says kindness, honesty, and fidelity will be seen in the lives of all who would become subjects of Christ’s kingdom. (DA, p. 107)

Honesty – always the best policy.
