A GOOD REASON

This story really made good sense to me so I am sharing it. It was anonymous.

A boy and his father were driving down a country road on a beautiful spring afternoon when a bumblebee flew in the car window.
The little boy, who was allergic to bee stings, was petrified.
The father quickly reached out, grabbed the bee, squeezed it in his hand, and then released it.
The little boy grew frantic as it buzzed by him.
Once again the father reached out his hand, but this time he pointed to his palm. There stuck to his skin, was the stinger of the bee.
"Do you see this?"he asked. "You don't need to be afraid anymore. I've taken the sting for you."

We Christians do not need to fear death anymore; Christ has died and rose again.
He has taken the sting from death (I Cor. 15: 55-58).
