Penn of Denn
Did you hear about the couple that crashed the White House party? Apparently, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, somehow faked their way into a reception at the White House, that was being held in honour of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
It has yet to determined how the pair gained entrance to the event, but the Salahi’s claim of having been invited, is being denied by the authorities. They did, however, get to schmooze with both the President and Vice-President while they were there. They obviously have, as my Daddy used to say, more nerve than Dick Tracy.
What started as a publicity stunt, might ultimately land them in court and maybe jail.
The bible tells us that there will be those who will try to get into heaven without an invitation. They will talk about how they were good enough and sincere enough and how they surely deserved to be let in. However, the word of God is very clear that there is only one way to gain an invitation and that is through the grace and forgiveness of God and unlike an invitation to the White House, all you need to do for an invitation to heaven, is ask.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
