The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Last night we watched a British comedy called "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."

It's the story of a group of misfit British pensioners who were enticed to retire to a hotel in India that was in very poor repair.
It didn't grab me to begin with, but it grew on me, and by the time it was finished I had been well entertained.

A quaint line often repeated by the Indian manager of the hotel went something like,
"Everything will be all right in the end.  So if it is not all right, then it is not yet the end."
How that resonated with me as a person believing in God's plan to reconcile all of creation to Himself in the end.
Since all are not yet reconciled to God, we are definitely not yet at the end.

How beautifully true.
God still has the remainder of this age, and more ages to come, in which to complete His mission.
But complete it He will, or the Saviour of the world will have wasted His time.

Blessings, Barry
