When my wife was a young girl in Austin, Texas, Carlyle Marney was her family’s neighbor, pastor, and friend. One of his off-hand remarks about being content became one of her family’s enduring expressions: “Dr. Marney says, ‘We just need to get our wanter fixed.’”Posted: December 5, 2013, 5:00 am

Isaiah 40:27-31; Matthew 6:24-34; Luke 10:38-42; Philippians 4:4-7
No one will ever know how much energy the human race has wasted through worry. In our breakneck-paced culture, worry has reached emotional epidemic levels. We are the most anxious among all of God's created beings. We have numerous phobias. Our diseases are often emotionally induced. We can trace many of our battles with common problems, such as insomnia, obesity, alcohol and drug addition, pessimism, and headaches to deep-seated unrest in our souls. What nervous, tense creatures we are! Surely God did not design our bodies to endure such self-imposed stress.

- CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS
Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pm"How about a hike up one of the mountain trails before dinner?" Mr. Charles called out to the boys in his fifth grade Sunday school class. This camping trip was a yearly event they had all looked forward to.
"Yes!" exclaimed several of the boys. They eagerly scrambled up and started out.
After hiking quite a while, they came across a spring of water. "My great-grandpa said that when he was a boy, he drank water from a spring in the woods behind their house," said Nathan. "Can we get a drink here?"
Mr. Charles shook his head. "Better not. The water may be okay, but I don't know," he said. A minute later, he added, "Besides, even if it's good, maybe there'd be enough fresh water for only one or two of you before it turns salty."
Nathan gave Mr. Charles a puzzled look. "If it's a freshwater spring, it wouldn't turn salty!" exclaimed Nathan. "A spring doesn't give two kinds of water."
Mr. Charles smiled. "That's exactly right," he agreed. "The Bible makes that point when it talks about controlling our tongues. The third chapter of James says that just like a spring doesn't give both fresh and salty water, the tongue of a person whose heart is filled with love for Jesus doesn't use both loving and unkind words."
Nathan was startled. He remembered angry words he had exchanged with Chad just that morning. Last week, I invited him to come camping with us, and he came. I even told him about Jesus, thought Nathan, but what I said today sure didn't show Jesus' love. He silently prayed, asking God to forgive him.
"Remember that words can sound very cruel," continued Mr. Charles. "Be careful about what you say--even when you're teasing. If you've been careless in that area, ask God and anyone you've hurt to forgive you. Ask God to help you make sure your words come from a pure source, not a salty one--not a critical, sarcastic attitude. Now, who needs a drink?"
"From this spring?" asked Nathan. "You said we shouldn't drink from it."
"No, not from this spring." Mr. Charles smiled. "From the bottles of water you brought along. Remember . . . drink good water and use good words."
"Oh, right!" exclaimed Nathan. And in his heart, he determined to find an opportunity to ask Chad's forgiveness before they got back to the campsite.
How About You?
Are there times when people are offended by something you say?Does your joking around sometimes sound biting and cruel? Ask God to help you be sensitive to the way other people feel. When you're tempted to make a sarcastic or critical remark--even if you're just teasing--examine it. Will it hurt someone who hears you? If so, think of something nice to say instead--and say it.

Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
Liz is in huge trouble! He borrowed money from Skink and can’t pay him back. Help Liz figure out what to do on this week’s Kids Corner.
Jesus never had much money, so why does the Bible talk so much about money? Can you finish these Bible verses about money?
- For the love of _________ is a root of all kinds of _____________. (I Timothy 6: 10)
- The rich rule over the ______, and the borrower is servant to the ______. (Prov. 22:7)
- You cannot serve both God and ________. (Matt. 6: 24)
- A generous man will _______; he who refreshes others will ________. (Prov. 11:25)
- ...not greedy for ______, but eager to _______. (I Peter 5:2)
How did you do? Here are the complete Bible verses:
- For the love of money is a root of all kinds of kinds of evil.
- The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
- You cannot serve both God and Money.
- A generous man will prosper, he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
- ...not greedy for money but eager to serve.
Why is money (and the love of money) mentioned in the Bible so much?
- Because money is important to our lives.
- Because how we handle money reflects how we love God.
- Because God cares about every detail in our lives-including our money and what we do with it.
Use your money wisely!
Okay, so why do kids need to learn about debt? Well, they sure have enough things that they want or need. There are ipods, cell phones, video games, skateboards, and the list goes on. And sometimes they are tempted to get an advance on their allowance, or ask their brother or sister for a loan, so that they can get the things they want when they want them. And, oh, what brother or sister can resist using their loan to get a "slave" for a day or week or however long it takes to get the loan paid off.
One of the important life skills that children need to develop is called "delayed gratification." Delayed gratification is the ability to wait for something that one wants. People who have this ability can set a goal and then work toward the achievement of that goal. Whether it is saving up for a video game, or waiting til Christmas for the bike that looks so cool in the store window, learning to wait, to save, to keep from being distracted from their ultimate goal, will serve our children well as they enter their teens and beyond.
The Bible has a lot to say about money and how to use it. It also warns that you cannot serve God and money (Matthew 6:24). When we borrow, we want to ask ourselves, will this loan cause me to serve the lender at the expense of my service to God and his Kingdom?
