On Believing*

Gustavo Dore was a renowned French artist, sculptor and illustrator in the 1800s.

A story about him said that once when he was crossing the Germany-Switzerland border, he forgot his I.D. He told the border patrol officer he was Gustavo Dore.

The officer replied, “The famous artist? Show me proof.”

Gustavo asked for a pen and paper and made a sketch.

The officer let him through.

It brings to mind what Jesus has been saying all along, “If you do not believe in me, believe in the things that I do.”

The officer believed Gustavo but I wonder how much more is needed for us to believe that Jesus is who he says he is.
