Play Your Part

Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. – Matthew 1:5


“Sight and Sound” Theater, well known around the U. S., is located only a few miles from where I live in central Pennsylvania (as well as Branson, Missouri). The company is famous for their elaborate productions and “wrap-around” staging. What they are not known for is their stage stars or famous personalities. You see, nowhere in any of their printed material will you find profiles of the actors as you do in other theatrical productions. Each actor appears anonymously it seems, in order that God might be the true star of the show.

A few years ago, after the viewing the performance of “Ruth,” I was reminded that in God’s eternal plan there are many anonymous actors whose lives are nonetheless vital to the telling and accomplishment of “His-story.” Each person’s contribution makes a difference, often an eternal difference.

May each of us play our part well.

God’s providence is not blind, but full of eyes. – John Whittier Greenleaf
