Broken Nose Results in Lifetime Membership

A high-school boy in New York City broke his nose. He was excused from school in order to go to a clinic to have it treated. After having his nose treated, he went to the Bronx Zoo. As he walked through the turnstile, he was immediately surrounded by officials of the zoo and photographers from the New York press. He was the 100,000,000th visitor to the Zoo since its foundation and was presented with a life membership in the New York Zoological Society.

Just as the boy's broken nose worked out for good, Romans 8:28 says that all things work together for good to Christians who love God.
