Our Daily Bread
During my days as a teacher and coach at a Christian high school, I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with teenagers, trying to guide them to a purposeful, Christlike life—characterized by love for God and love for others. My goal was to prepare them to live for God throughout life. That would happen only as they made their faith a vital part of life through the help of the Holy Spirit. Those who didn’t follow Christ floundered after they left the influence of Christian teachers and parents.Posted: March 10, 2014, 1:00 am

What stubborn people we can be! Selfish to the core, we want our way, not someone else's…and certainly not God's. Short-sighted, we see the immediate and the obvious, not the ultimate and the hidden. Easily irritated and impatient, our first reaction when taken advantage of is to retaliate, to establish a defensive posture and not give anyone an inch. Those efforts only intensify when faced with an adversary. Then we aren't satisfied with simply standing our ground and being determined…getting even becomes our agenda.
Simple Faith: The Sermon on the Mount--A Study of Matthew 5-7
Mon - Fri 9pm.The Trinity is very clearly revealed to us in Scripture. The word Trinity doesn’t occur there but there is very clear evidence of the nature of the Father as God and the nature of the Son equally as God, of the Holy Spirit as being God. And yet Scripture also bears witness to the fact there is one God.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pm"How was Bible club?" asked Mom as Pete and Mike arrived home.
"Good! I'm on the game committee for a party we're having in a couple of weeks," Mike replied. "That will be fun! After I learn my verses for next time, I'm going to look for some games." He headed for his room.
Mom looked at Pete as he turned on the TV. "Did you enjoy the club, too?" she asked. "What was the lesson about?"
Pete looked up. "Oh . . . ah . . . something about some queen. I was in the back row and didn't hear so good." He turned his attention back to the TV.
"Are you on a committee for the party?" asked Mom.
"Nah. They wanted me to help with decorations, but I'm not into that," mumbled Pete. "I guess I don't like Bible club as much as Mike does." He turned off the TV and stood up. "Can I go over to Kelly's house?"
"I guess so," agreed Mom, "or do you need to first learn Bible verses, too?"
Pete shrugged. "I can do that later." He put on his coat and looked at himself in the hall mirror. His mother watched as he tipped his head and smiled. His reflection smiled back. Then he scowled, and the reflection scowled, too. He pulled a funny face and then laughed at the funny face he saw in the mirror. When Pete noticed his mother watching, he grinned at her.
Mom smiled back. "Life is a little like a mirror," she said. "Did you know that?"
Pete's eyebrows shot up. "How so?" he asked.
"Just like a mirror, life gives back pretty much what you give to it," explained Mom. "If you give it a little, you get only a little out of it. If you put a lot into life's activities, you'll find you enjoy them far more and get more out of them, too." She gestured toward his Bible lying on the table. "Take Bible club, for instance," she added, "and junior choir and school and your ball team and church and . . ."
"And everything," interrupted Pete. He picked up his Bible. "Okay, I get the point," he said thoughtfully. "You're saying I'll like Bible club better if I learn the verses we're assigned . . . and I'll like the party better if I help with it, too?"
"Right!" agreed Mom. "Exactly right!"
How About You?
Are you giving your best to the activities in which you're involved? Or do you prefer to do as little as possible--just enough for you to get by? Today's Scripture reading says to do everything "heartily, as to the Lord." Do you do your part in that way? When you do, you're serving God. You'll also find that you enjoy your activities more when you take part wholeheartedly.
Today's Key Verse:
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might. (Ecclesiastes 9:10)
Today's Key Thought:
Do everything as to the Lord

Super cool news! Liz and his friends are flying off to Luxurious Lizard Lagoon—that is if the plane ever takes off. Join Liz as he discovers God’s detours often lead to amazing adventures and new friends on this week’s Kids Corner.
Have you ever wondered about God’s timing? Time for a Bible Quiz on God’s Timing!
Question 1: Philip was telling lots of people about Christ when suddenly God sent him to walk along a lonely road. (Acts 8) Why?
Question 2: Paul was preaching in the busy market of Philippi when he was thrown into jail. (Acts 16) Why would God allow that?
Question 3: Jesus got news that his good friend Lazarus was very sick, but Jesus didn’t change his plans. (John 11) Why wouldn’t Jesus heal his friend?
How did you do? God’s timing was perfect for Philip to be walking along a desert road when a very important man from Ethiopia came driving along. After Philip told the man about Jesus and baptized him, the man traveled back to Ethiopia, bringing the gospel to another country (Ethiopia) and a new continent (Africa). Paul didn’t waste his time in jail; he prayed and sang songs to God so loudly that the other prisoners listened to him. Then Paul witnessed about Jesus to the head jailer and his family. Imagine all the people a Christian jailer could talk to about Jesus—both prisoners and their visitors! Jesus didn’t heal Lazarus from his disease; Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead! Many of the people who were there to comfort Lazarus’ family instead met Jesus and believed in him. We were given this truth: Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Who believes in Jesus will live even though he dies. (John 11: 25)
What about you? The next time God seems slow to act….or you are delayed from doing something you want to do….or the timing of something just seems odd….look for God. God always has a reason for his plan and for his timing. Be on the look out for what God may be planning to do through you today!
In this verse, we see that God has a plan for each one of us. As we try to place ourselves in this week story, we too remember that sometimes our plans and God’s plan can be quite different. How often do we look back and see God’s guiding hands intentionally involved in our lives? Can you see God’s fingerprints on the days and weeks that have just happened? What events make more sense to you now that you can look back on them?
We don’t like it when God says no to our plans. He answers our prayers with three answers: “Yes”, “No” and “Wait”. In our world, where everything is instant, we don’t like being told “No” or “Wait”. Stop and listen to the still small voice of God who reveals His plan. God has placed us where we are for a reason about which we might not know. Maybe it’s a big thing where we will have an opportunity to proclaim his name to a friend or neighbor. Maybe it’s a small thing. In Matt 10:42, Jesus points out that giving a cup of cold water to someone who needs it can be done in Jesus’ name.
How can we bless the people around us? A lot of times we are looking ahead to the next thing in our lives and ignoring what and who are in front of us. Let’s start with a smile and a positive attitude. As Grandpa pointed out, we can be examples of praising God in whatever the circumstances are. The Holy Spirit walks with us, and he knows us far better than we know ourselves. That’s why we can be sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
