DRAGON TALES 
5/9/19

Dear St. George Families,

Christians come in three models; rafts, sailboats, and tugboats. First, there are the rafts. Basically, they are Christians in name only. They follow Jesus but someone else pulls or pushes them. Second, there are the sailboats. They follow Jesus, but only in sunny weather. When stormy weather comes, they go in the direction of the wind and the waves. In other words, they follow the crowd more than they follow Jesus. Finally, there are the tugboats. They follow Jesus regardless of the weather. They go in his direction not only when the wind and waves serve them but also when the wind and waves oppose them. Tugboats don't always travel as fast as they should but they always travel straight.

God bless,

Jack Nelson
