Faith Attack – (A probing question or insightful comment from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: How does one experience “perfect peace” since as humans we’re not perfect?
A: You can experience moments of peace that feel like perfection. Perfect peace is in how you “string along” those moments from day to day, in between the ups and downs of life to make it worthwhile.
Comment: “Sometimes we’re not sure if God is listening or not. But serving and operating in faith reminds us that he is. At the end of the day it’s about choosing not to serve for any reason but because it’s the right thing to do.” – Deb
Wise Crack – (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
Two adventurers John and Jack were hunting for gold in the desert. After roaming all day long under the hot sun, they set up their tent and fell asleep. Some hours later, John woke up his friend.
“Jack, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”
Jack looked up and replied, “I can see millions of stars.”
“What does that tell you?” asked John.
Jack thought for a minute and said.
“Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?”
After a moment of silence, John spoke.
“It tells two things to me. First is that…you are an idiot.”
Jack looked at John, surprised. “Why do you say so?” he said.
“Because it has still not occurred to you that someone has stolen our tent.”
