“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”
—2 Timothy 3:16
When I was a kid, I was really into reptiles. So one year for my birthday, I asked my mother to take me to a place called the California Alligator Farm, which was in Buena Park next to Knott’s Berry Farm.
I invited a bunch of my friends to come with me for my birthday, and they all came. We went from cage to cage looking at reptiles, which are not always the liveliest creatures. Meanwhile, we could see Knott’s Berry Farm right over the fence. All of us were thinking the same thing: Why we are here looking at reptiles when we could be on a ride right now?
