Who’s On First?

Just Thinking:  Once again, I read it on the ‘net,’ so it must be true.  On this date in 1982 Scott Fahlman became the first person to use 🙂 in an online message. With the www being world-wide, verifying this fact must have been quite a challenge.  I wonder who was first to use “FYI,” “BTW,” and “lol.”
Copyrights and patents supposedly protect “firsts” in our society.  And while I am uncertain about Scott Fahlman, I can say with bold assurance that God loved you first.  Not only did He love you before you loved Him (1 John 4:19), He also loved you before anyone else loved you (Jeremiah 1:5).  The reason you love Him is because His love drew you to Him (John 12:32).  AND HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS.
