My Mommy, The Dancer

My Mommy, The Dancer

One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children in her class what
their mothers did for a living.

All the typical answers came up — teacher, nurse, businesswoman,
saleswoman, doctor, lawyer, and so forth.

However, little Johnny was being uncharacteristically quiet, So when
the teacher gently prodded him about his mother, He replied, "Well my
mother’s an exotic dancer in a Club and takes off all her clothes in
front of men, and they put money in her underwear. Sometimes, if the
offer is really good, she will go home with some guy and stay with him
all night for money."

The teacher, obviously shaken by this bold statement, hurriedly set
the other children to work on some exercises and then took little
Johnny aside to quietly ask him, "Is that really true about your
mother, dear?"

Nope," the boy said, "She works for the Democratic National Committee
and is helping to get Hillary Clinton to be our next President, but I
was too embarrassed to say that In front of the other kids."

Cartoonists are Controversial and Murderers are Moderate

Cartoonists are Controversial and Murderers are Moderate.

While the police were still checking cars for explosives and attendees waited to be released, CNN called AFDI, rather than the terrorists who attacked a cartoon contest, “intolerant.” Time dubbed the group “controversial.” The Washington Post called the contest, “provocative.”

Many media outlets relied on the expert opinion of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a multi-million dollar mail order scam disguised as a civil rights group, which had listed AFDI as a hate group. Also listed as hate groups were a number of single author blogs, including mine, a brand of gun oil and a bar sign.

Graduate Level Christianity

Graduate Level Christianity

May 5

"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Matt. 5:44).

There was a man who had become a friend and mentor to me, but a conflict arose between us that we were unable to resolve. I never imagined that this man would go from being one of my best friends to an enemy. I asked God to show me how I should treat this man, and the words of Jesus came to mind, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."

"Lord," I said, "surely you don’t mean I’m to love this man! Not after the way he’s hurt me and refused to reconcile!"

As I argued with God, I remembered that Jesus, before He was betrayed, got down on his knees and washed the feet of Judas Iscariot, His enemy. The moment that scene came to my mind, I knew what God was calling me to do. I had to wash the feet of my Judas.

This man who had been my friend and mentor had also been a client of my advertising agency. He was a Christian author and speaker, and I decided to bless this man by continuing to promote his ministry and his books.

Did he ever come back to me and reconcile? Yes, seven years later. But even if he had never reconciled with me, I knew that I did what God called me to do. I washed the feet of my Judas. I passed the test.

God doesn’t promise that if we forgive there will be a happy ending. He doesn’t promise that the man who refuses to pay a bill will suddenly write a check. He doesn’t promise that the one who rejects reconciliation will instantly soften his heart. Jesus forgave his executioners, but that didn’t keep them from nailing Him to the cross.

The Graduate Level Test is not about getting the results we want. It’s about proving that we trust God enough to forgive our Judases. It’s a graduate-level course in Christian obedience. But I believe that every leader whom God uses in a significant way must pass the Judas Test.

God wants to know if we are willing to be imitators of Jesus. How can we say we are followers of Christ if we won’t wash the feet of our Judases?

True contentment?

True contentment?
For reading & meditation: 1 Timothy 6:6
"But godliness with contentment is great gain."(v.6) We continue meditating on the first of God’s four purposes for money – to provide our basic needs. We saw yesterday that God longs for us to be dependent on Him. This is not because God is possessive, but because He knows that we experience our greatest happiness and freedom when we rely on Him alone. When we fail to recognise our need for God, we tend to lose our love for God. And the more we lose our love for God, the more we come to depend upon ourselves. Permit me to remind you again of the text we looked at yesterday: "If we have food and clothing, we will be content" (1 Tim. 6:8). Contentment is the satisfaction we get from knowing there will be provision for our basic needs. We begin to lose our contentment when we compare what we have with what others have – and then before long expectations dominate our focus. To the degree that our expectations increase, contentment diminishes. One of the great advantages of being content with basics is that it equips us to resist the alluring advertising which seeks to convince us that we are able really to enjoy life unless we buy some new commodity. A contented person feels wealthy because he knows that what he already possesses is all he needs for daily living. A veteran missionary, meeting some new recruits to the mission field, surprised them by saying: "The first thing I would like you to do is to make a list of all the things you think you need – then I will spend some time with you showing you how to do without them."

Prayer:
O my Father, I see that material things can be a good servant but a bad master. Deliver me from the bondage of the material and help me to become a truly contented person. In Jesus’ Name I ask it. Amen.

2. How should we live?

The Difference between the Garland, Texas Jihad and Charlie Hebdo Attacks…

But let’s compare what took place at Charlie Hebdo with what occurred on Sunday evening in Garland, Texas. First, consider that in America there are tens of millions, if not more, people who are well armed and know how to use their weapons. They understand that being well armed is vital to the security of a free state, not to mention to defend their own lives and those around them.

"Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plentitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual." -- Thomas Jefferson
