He can make something out of you

Some years ago, Mohammed Ali, arguably the world’s greatest boxer, was asked by a kid from a city ghetto whether he should quit school and start a boxing career, since he had such bad grades. Ali smiled at the young man and said in his characteristic poetic fashion: ‘Stay in college and get the knowledge, And stay there! Til you’re through. Cause if God can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, He can make something out of you.’
Well that’s also the good news of the gospel. ‘This is how much God loved the world:’ the Bible says. ‘He gave his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.’ Or, in the words of Mohammed Ali; ‘If God can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, He can make something out of you.’
