The Personal Touch
by Peter Mill


The Personal TouchHello again,

I heard a heartwarming story on the news this morning of a young football supporter who wrote a letter to his hero, Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon.

Ten year old Henry Baines sent a touching hand-written note to the Boro star, who was so moved by the letter that he personally visited the boy’s house to present him with a signed match-worn shirt.

The report I heard made a big point of the fact that the letter was hand-written, a rarity in this age of emails, texts and tweets. The implication was that it had a much greater impact on the footballer than an electronic message because it was so much more personal.

When we think about God, do we think of him as remote and impersonal, not at all concerned with us silly human beings?

You might be surprised.

The bible says of God: “For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb”. Psalm 139:13 Think about that for a moment: when our foetal cells were dividing and growing he was right there, up close and personal!

When you think about God in those terms, does that have a greater impact on you? It should.

All the very best,
Peter Mill
