Lessons from the Thai Cave Rescue, Etc.

The recent cave rescue in Thailand is perhaps the news story of the year. It's the kind of story that restores one's hope in humanity. Part of what makes it so extraordinary is how the entire event echoes our universal awe of selfless love--an awe that finds its ultimate realization in the work of Jesus Christ (Jn. 15:13-14; Rom. 5:8). The rescues also surprisingly serve as a reminder of the dangers of complacency in the christian walk (Rev. 3:14-20).
