Morning Thought: “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Nazareth was a dump of a place. It was poor and had a horrible reputation. Yet, this was the place the Father chose for his Son, Jesus, to grow up. You may have come from somewhere that stunk like manure, but let Jesus water you, and what seemed like waste will become fertiliser. The Lord specialises in fruitfulness springing out of the most neglected soil. “‘Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?’ Nathanael asked. ‘Come and see,’ said Philip” (John 1:46, NIV).
