In the time of Jesus the question was asked, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" (John 1:46). Jesus dwelled in a city in Galilee that was referred to as a place of scorn and ridicule. In the same context, today I ask, "Can anything good come from the life of a worm?" Identity Crisis - A Pristine Narrative of a Blessed Worm bears testament that Jesus blessed mankind by sacrificing His life so that all humanity can live, including the lowly, meek, and despicable "worms" of society-the overlooked ones, the less fortunate ones, those who have tried and failed and maybe even given up on life. Through faith in God, one can be victorious and endure any adverse circumstance. Jesus said, "But many that are first shall be last; and the last first" (Mark 10:31). So don't worry about why you may not receive any recognition for the work you do in this lifetime. The reward is far beyond "time." It is eternal, for God has laid up a crown of righteousness for those who have kept the faith ABOUT THE AUTHOR Mary Ruth Turner is a native of Wichita, Kansas, and the daughter of Pastor Shadrach and First Lady Rosie L.
