Men occasionally stumble over the truth…

but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened. —Winston Churchill

Toward the end of World War II, the people of Warsaw, Poland were picking through the rubble of their city. Bombs and shells had leveled virtually every building, until only a few chimneys remained standing; grotesque and useless obelisks against the iron-gray sky.

But the Poles looked up in wonder at one wall of a building that was still standing. It was the only remaining wall of the British and Foreign Bible Society. The wall bore a sign with letters that were still clearly legible even after the many bombardments: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”  Matthew 24:26-35
