2 Samuel 11:1-5
There was none more mighty than David. As a lad he had faithfully protected his family's sheep from both the lion and the bear, then astounded the nation of Israel when he felled the giant Goliath. He proved himself a valiant warrior, and with David as command-in-chief there was no army more feared that Israel's. He was a national symbol for truth, righteousness, justice, and compassion. He was a musician, songwriter, and visionary. That was the mighty David, the anointed one, a man after God's own heart.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pm"I feel awful!" whined Kaleb. "Why did I have to get sick anyway? God could have healed my tonsils. I asked Him to, so why didn't He?"
"He must have something even better planned for you," said Mom.
"Like what?" Kaleb asked. Throwing his hands in the air, he sighed. "Now I can't go to Owen's house for the weekend. I haven't seen him since we moved here." Kaleb sniffed. "Why didn't God help us keep our house? How come we had to move?" He slumped into his pillows and mumbled, "Idon't like it here!"
"Be patient, honey. You'll soon feel better and be playing with Rover again," said Mom. Rover, a stray dog, had wandered into their yard the day they moved into their new home in the country. Kaleb begged to keep him, and after checking for an owner, Dad took Rover to a vet. Then, to Kaleb's delight, they adopted him.
Later that day, Kaleb watched a video Mom had taken of him playing with Rover. Just as it ended, a boy entered the room. "This is Trent," said Mom.
"Hi," said Trent. "I live next door, and I came to ask if you want to skate-board." Trent shrugged. "But you're sick."
"I have some games we could play," suggested Kaleb. And for the rest of the afternoon, the boys played games, talked, and laughed.
"I never had so much fun with a friend," said Kaleb that evening. "We like the same stuff."
Mom smiled. "So God brought something good out of what seemed bad to you," she said.
"What do you mean?" Kaleb asked.
"Well, if we hadn't moved from the city to the country, you wouldn't have been able to keep Rover," said Mom as she handed Kaleb a bowl of ice cream. "And if you hadn't gotten sick and missed going to visit Owen, it might have been a long time before you discovered what a great friend Trent can be." Mom tousled Kaleb's hair. "You're seeing some of the bright side of your troubles. Things happen that seem bad to us, but God always uses them for good in the lives of His children. Instead of getting mad at God, we should trust Him and be thankful for the good He brings through the experiences He allows." Mom looked at Kaleb. "Get it?"
Kaleb grinned. "I think so. And there's something else good about being sick," he said. "I get to have lots of ice cream and popsicles. YUM!"
How About You?
Do you look for the bright side when difficult things happen? Because of a disappointment, perhaps you made a friend, someone came to know Jesus, you found a way to help somebody else, or you were able to join a sports team or musical group. There are many possibilities. Even if you don't see anything good right away, trust God. Ask Him to help you see the bright side of what happens. Sometimes disappointments are just a bridge on your way to something better.
Today's Key Verse:
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5: 18)
Today's Key Thought:
Trust God with disappointments

Grandpa tells the kids a story from his childhood to explain why Johnny is such an unhappy old lizard.
Do Christians dress differently than non-Christians? Time for a Bible quiz on clothes!
Question 1: Who was famous for wearing clothes made out of camel's hair? (Mark 1:6)
Question 2: After she died, people gathered together to show Peter all the robes and clothing she had made and given away to poor people around her. (Acts 10: 39)
Question 3: Whose father loved him so much that he bought a richly decorated robe just for him? (Genesis 37: 3)
Question 4: Who told a story about a wedding banquet at which a man who wasn't wearing wedding clothes was tied up and thrown outside the banquet into the darkness? (Matt. 22: 1-14)
How did you do? John the Baptist was famous not only for his camel-hair clothes, but also for preparing the way for Jesus. Dorcas (or Tabitha) was famous for her sewing and acts of kindness-so famous that people made Peter come to her town when she died. Not only did Peter come, he raised her from the dead. Jacob loved his son Joseph so much, he bought the fancy coat so that everyone would know who Joseph was. Jesus told the story about the wedding banquet to teach the people about the kingdom of God.
So what do clothes have to do with being a Christian? A lot! Colossians 3:12 says because we are "God's chosen people," this means that we are "holy and dearly loved." So how do we react to being chosen and loved by God? We want to look and act like God. We want to reflect God to others. How? By "clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." By our "clothes," others will see God!
There is usually a reason that a person is unhappy and mean. There is something in their past, or their present that is making them unhappy, and they take it out on the people around them. That's what happened with Johnny. He lost his pet bird and it made him an angry boy and a bitter man. He was angry with God and this caused him to be angry and impatient with other people too.
Our natural first response when bad things happen is often bitterness and anger. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can train ourselves in the Spirit so that our first response is trust in God's goodness, which enables God's character to shine through us. Then the clothes of God-the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience-will fit us nicely.
In Jesus we are dearly loved by God. That knowledge needs to penetrate us to our very bones. When it does, we are able to show others the love of God and it will be so attractive that they cannot help but be drawn to Jesus. Liz and his friends bought a new songbird for Johnny as a gesture of love. Hopefully, this loving act will result in giving Johnny a new song in his heart, the song of a child dearly loved by his Father in Heaven.
