  • Jesus alone brings true peace for the distressed

    I read a story about a man named Bill. His wife left him and he became so depressed that his doctor sent him for psychiatric help. Bill told the psychiatrist his difficulties and surmised, “Life isn’t worth living.” The psychiatrist retorted, “Don’t be so rash, Bill; let work be your recovery. I want you to totally plunge yourself in your work. Now, what do you do for a living?” Bill looked even more distraught as he replied, “I clean out septic tanks.” So much for the power of positive thinking!
