[dailyfoodforthought] 10 LITTLE CHRISTIANS

10 LITTLE CHRISTIANS


10 Little Christians standing in line

1 disliked the preacher, then there were 9

9 little Christians stayed up very late

1 overslept Sunday, then there were 8

8 little Christians on their way to Heaven

1 took the low road and then there were 7

7 little Christians chirping like chicks

1 disliked music, then there were 6

6 little Christians seemed very much alive

but one lost his interest then there was 5

5 little Christians pulling for Heaven's Shore

but one stopped to rest, then there were 4

4 little Christians each busy as a bee

but one got his feelings hurt, then there were 3

3 little Christians knew not what to do

1 joined the sporty crowd, then there were 2

2 little Christians, our rhyme is nearly done

differed with each other, then there was 1

1 little Christian can't do much 'tis true;

but brought his friend to Bible study -- then there were 2

2 earnest Christians, each won one more

that doubled the number, then there were 4

4 sincere Christians worked early and late

Each won another then there were 8

8 splendid Christians if they doubled as before

In just so many Sundays, we'd have 1,024

In this little jingle, there is a lesson true,

You belong, either to the building-, or to the wrecking-crew!

[dailyfoodforthought] TOP TEN REASONS TO BELIEVE IN THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

TOP TEN REASONS TO BELIEVE IN THE CHRISTIAN FAITH


1.  The Credibility of Its Founder:   Peter spoke for Jesus' closest followers when he said, "Lord, to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that You are the Holy One of God." (John 6:68-69)

2.  Reliability of Its Book:  The integrity of this historical and geographical record is supported by archeology.  The Bible continues to speak not only with spiritual power but with convincing prophetic accuracy.

3.  Explanations for Life:  It is the Christian faith that reflects a caring attention to detail so evident in the species and ecosystems of the natural world.  It is Christ who clothed himself in our humanity to feel what we feel and then to suffer and die in our place.

4.  Its Continuity with the Past:  The Christian faith offers continuity with our deepest ancestral roots.  Those who trust Christ are accepting the same Creator and Lord worshiped by Adam, Abraham, and Solomon.

5.  Its Foundational Claim:  The first Christians were witnesses.  They risked their lives to tell the World that with their own eyes they had seen an innocent man die and then miraculously walk among them 3 days later.

6.  Its Power to Change Lives:  Not only were the first disciples dramatically changed but so were their worst enemies.  Paul was transformed from a killer of Christians into one of their chief advocates (Galatians 1:11-24)

7.  Its Analysis of Human Nature:  The Bible says that society's real problems are problems of the heart.  In an age of information and technology, failures of character have scandalized institutions of the family, religion, and the arts.

8.  Its View of Human Achievement:  Generation after generation has hoped for the best.  We have conceived technologies that will deliver us from the oppressive slavery of work.  Yet we are as close as ever to what the New Testament describes as the end times.  (Matthew 24:5-31)

9.  Its Impact on Society:  From roof tops to necklaces to earrings, we see the sign of the cross, bearing visible witness to Christ's death. Social relief agencies have been fueled by the direct or residual values

of The Bible.

10.  Its Offer of Salvation:  No other faith offers everlasting life as a gift to those who trust the One who has overcome death for them.  No other system offers assurance of forgiveness and adoption into the family of God.

[dailyfoodforthought] REAL FRIEND TEST

REAL FRIEND TEST


A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself (and doesn't feel even the least bit weird shutting your 'beer/Pepsi drawer' with her foot!)

A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears..

A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you!

[dailyfoodforthought] ROSES AND THORNS

ROSES AND THORNS

 

A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully, and before it blossomed, he examined it.  He saw the bud that would soon blossom and also the thorns.  And he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?" Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was ready to bloom, it died.

So it is with many people.  Within every soul there is a rose.  The God-like qualities planted in us at birth grow amid the thorns of our faults.  Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.  We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us.  We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies.  We never realize our potential.

Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them.

 

One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.  This is the characteristic of love, to look at a person, and knowing his faults, recognize the nobility in his soul, and help him realize that he can overcome his faults.  If we show him the rose, he will conquer the thorns.

Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses and not their thorns.  Only then can we achieve the love we should feel for each other; only then can we bloom in our own garden.

[dailyfoodforthought] PSALM 23 READING

PSALM 23 READING


There once was a Shakespearean actor who was known everywhere for his one-man shows of readings and recitations from the classics. He would always end his performance with a reading of Psalm 23.

 

Each night, without exception, as the actor began his recitation "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want"... the crowd would listen attentively. And then, at the conclusion of the psalm, they would rise in thunderous applause in appreciation of the actor's incredible ability to bring the verse to life.

 

But one night, just before the actor was to offer his customary recital of Psalm 23, a young man from the audience spoke up. "Sir, do you mind if tonight I recite Psalm 23"?

 

The actor was quite taken aback by this unusual request, but he allowed the young man to come forward and stand front and center on the stage to recite the Psalm, knowing that the ability of this unskilled youth would be no match for his own talent.

 

With a soft voice, the young man began to recite the words of the Psalm. When he was finished, there was no applause. There was no standing ovation as on other nights. All that could be heard was the sound of weeping. The audience had been so moved by the young man's recitation that every eye was full of tears.

 

Amazed by what he had heard, the actor said to the youth, "I don't understand. I have been performing Psalm 23 for years. I have a lifetime of experience and training, but I have never been able to move an audience as you have tonight. Tell me, what is your secret?"

 

The young man quietly replied, "Well sir, you know the Psalm. I know the Shepherd."
