Humor – January 31

Last year I entered a marathon. The race started and immediately I was the last of the runners. It was embarrassing.

The guy who was in front of me, second to last, was making fun of me. He said, “Hey buddy, how does it feel to be last?”

I replied: “You really want to know?”

Then I dropped out of the race.

There would be less childhood inactivity if children had to chop wood to keep their smart phones going.

“Be careful that no one fails to receive God’s grace” Hebrews 12:15 NCV

You need grace. We all do!  Only when we let go of the fear of failure will it let go of its maddening grip on our lives. Once that happens, we can fully accept the grace of God.

I told my boss that three companies were after me and I need a raise.

My boss asked, “What companies?”

Gas, water and electricity.

“For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ” John 1:17 NLT

God’s grace is entirely wrapped up in a person: Jesus. You can’t get it through religion or ritual. You can’t get it by following the rules.  You get it through Jesus.  God’s grace is free. You simply need to accept it.

“Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? . . . So let people see God in and through your body” 1 Corinthians 6:20 The Message

You can’t really understand the grace of God and the price he paid to make it available to you while living how you want to live, ignoring the commands of Jesus, or wasting your life on things that don’t matter.

And Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your faith has made you well.’ Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road” Mark 10:52 NASB

I don’t know what step you need to take next, but I do know that you need to take it.

A minister in a little church announced: “Before we pass the collection plate, I would like to request that the person who stole the chickens from Brother Martin’s hen house please refrain from giving any money to the Lord.  The Lord doesn’t want money from a thief!”

The collection plate was passed around, and for the first time in months everybody gave.

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going” Hebrews 11:8 NIV

Faith is following God’s instructions, even when they don’t make sense, even when they don’t seem logical or rational. Faith means being obedient.

We were camping with our granddaughters 5- and 3-years-old at a state park and hiking on one of the trails.

The 5-year-old asked for a walking stick, so I found a limb on the ground and trimmed off the little stems and such. Hiking a little further and thinking the 3-year-old would want one also, I found another limb on the ground that fit her size and trimmed it down and gave it to her.

After about ten steps or so, she slings the stick out into the woods and states, “I don’t need this, I’m not Moses.”

Failure is not an option! It comes bundled with the software.

“I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry” Psalm 40:1 NIV

One of the most obvious evidences of faith is how you respond to the waiting rooms of life.
