Mom, Should I Eat My Booger?



I am blessed to have 5 beautiful children that fill my life with so many great stories. They also have a tendency to fill my life with some pretty gross ones as well. Recently my 4 year old son Colby posed an interesting question to my wife when he asked, "Mom, should I eat my booger?" As you can imagine, the entire scene was rather, shall we say, disgusting! If you can get past the picture of my son staring at his booger like it's dinner, you (& I) can learn a valuable non-dietary lesson. Colby paused & asked before he acted. In other words, he sought wisdom. Imagine what would happen if we would pause, like Colby, & ask before making our decisions today. What would have happened if Eve would have paused before eating the fruit & said, "Father (God), Should I Eat This?" What would be different about your life today if you would have sought wisdom yesterday? The Bible says in Proverbs 14:12, "There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death." The best question you can ever ask in any situation is simply this, "what is the wisest thing to do?" Wisdom is essentially anointed common sense that begins with pausing & asking before acting. Wisdom is knowing what God wants you to do & then choosing to do it! What are you getting ready to do in your life today that you need to pause & say, "Father (God), should I do this?" Whatever you do, understand that "Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding. 8 Treasure wisdom, and it will make you great; hold on to it, and it will bring you honor." Proverbs 4:7-8 (NCV) Before you take another bite, maybe it's time to pause get some heavenly advice!

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
