There are certain words in the English language that I just love to hear the sound of, they have a certain ring to them. Conundrum is one of them. It means a confusing and difficult problem or question.
We were recently watching a Real Rail Adventures with Jeff Wilson program on our ipad before retiring to bed. We often “travel” before bed. 🛌🛤😴
It took us on a perilous route through tbe Alps towards Gotthard Pass. We were told it was an area known as being a thoroughfare and a “conundrum” for more than 700 years.
Conundrum. There was my word. He said it. The conundrum for centuries was how could humans cross the intractable barrier of the Alps. They’d tried roads, tunnels, even a bedeviled bridge.
We were told in the 13th century, locals hung a wooden bridge over the surging Reuss river, a task so difficult they had to make a pact with the Devil to complete it. Satan’s price was ownership of the first soul who crossed it. The villagers outsmarted him by sending a goat on the inaugural crossing. Now a nine and a half mile Gotthard tunnel, built in 1882, takes its place. Pretty amazing if you ask me. I’d Iove to take a ride on that train. The scenery looks absolutely breathtaking!
Can you think of any modern day conundrums we face today? I can!
How are we as Christians to bring a lost world to know and love jesus as we do?
It’s easy! God’s word te)ls us exactly how to do it! It’s his plan. For each of us!
Do good. Not evil. Treat others as you want to be treated. That means everybody! And share Gods love with them all.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Love and laughter,
