    When the snow flies in Michigan, I like to get my grandkids, grab our plastic sleds, and go slipping and sliding down our backyard. We zoom down the hill for about 10 seconds, and then climb back up for more.

  • Just Thinking

    Mon - Fri 1pm.

    If Christianity claims no one can be saved outside of Christ, does God ignore those who pray to Him in other religions? Maybe you’ve struggled with this question or maybe you’ve never even thought about it before. Ravi Zacharias tackles this tough question on today’s Just Thinking.

    Job 1:1-3, 6-11, 20-21; 2:1-6, 8-10; James 4:13-16

    All of us would agree—life is difficult. Without warning, heartbreaking moments and tragic events cut our legs out from under us and drop us on our faces. Caught by surprise, we wonder if our anguish is truly unbearable. It's bad enough when such pain comes as the result of our wrongdoing—when we suffer the awful consequences of our own disobedience. However, little compares to the pain we're called upon to endure when we don't deserve it.

    Culture is different and legitimate but when we begin to feel that one culture – usually my culture – is superior to another or sometimes somebody else’s culture is superior to mine and so we feel intimidated, then the difference becomes a division.

    Mon - Sat  7:30am & 7:30pm

    "Clumsy! Can't you even stand on your own two feet?" Kim heard jeering voices as she lay on the sidewalk, pain shooting through her skinned knees and hands. Her bulky, corrective shoes made it difficult to go down steps, and she had tripped and fallen. Several girls glanced back as Kim lay sprawled on the ground. Then, except for one, they all ran away to the playground.

    "Are you all right?" asked the girl who stayed. Kim nodded bravely but was too winded to answer. "Let me help you up," offered the girl. "Give me your hand. My name is Michelle. What's yours?"

    Kim extended her hand. "K-K-Kim," she gasped, finally able to get her breath. "Thanks for helping me, Michelle. You're a real Good Samaritan."

    "Good Samaritan? What's that?" asked Michelle as they went into the school so Kim could wash up.

    Kim smiled at her new friend. "We learned about him in Sunday school," she said. "Do you go to church and Sunday school?"

    Michelle shook her head. "Tell me about your good Samaritan," she said.

    And so Kim told her the story. "The man who took care of the one who was hurt is called the Good Samaritan," explained Kim, "and you really are like him!"

    Michelle smiled. "I'm glad I could help you," she said, "but most anyone would."

    Kim shook her head. "Two girls from my Sunday school class were in that group that saw me fall, but like those religious leaders, they didn't stop to help. You don't even go to Sunday school, but you stopped. According to Jesus, you were a neighbor to me." She paused for a moment, then added shyly, "But, you know, being a good neighbor isn't enough. You need to know Jesus and love Him, too. Would you like to come to Sunday school with me and learn more about Him?"

    "Sure," agreed Michelle as the girls went out to play. "I like that Good Samaritan story. Are there more stories like that one?"

    How About You?
    When you see someone in trouble, do you stop to help? That isn't always an easy thing to do--especially when other people pass on by. The Bible teaches that helping those in trouble is an important part of a Christian's life. If you love God, show His love to all those around you by being a good neighbor to them. If you do that, you may also have a chance to tell them about Jesus.

    Today's Key Verse:
    You shall love the Lord your God . . . and your neighbor as yourself.
    (Luke 10:27)

    Today's Key Thought:
    Love your neighbor

    Verse: Luke 6:37

    If you do not judge others, then you will not be judged.

    Have you ever heard of the Faith Hall of Fame? Its members are listed and described in Hebrews 11. Here's a question for you about our heroes of Faith: True or False. Each person in the Faith Hall of Fame had a perfect reputation.

    Did you know the answer is false? Here are some of our great faith heroes:

    1. Abraham. Yes, he talked with God often. He seemed to be a wealthy man who always obeyed God. He also lied to a king that his wife was his sister and then let that king take Sarah to marry her. Only God's intervention saved Sarah from becoming an Egyptian princess.
    2. Gideon is a great hero of faith who drove out the mean, nasty Midianites from his country. But everyone who knew him also knew he was the youngest son of a little family from a little tribe in Israel. Everyone also knew that he was a scaredy cat who needed lots of signs from God before he would act.
    3. King David is listed in the Faith Hall of Fame. He was a man who was after God's own heart. Unfortunately, he neglected to teach his family-he had lots of wives and children-enough about God. His children grew up hating and hurting each other and their father. Everyone knew that David's own son even tried to kill him.
    4. Moses led God's people out of slavery in Egypt. But he also murdered an Egyptian. He tried to tell God to choose another person to save Israel. He wasn't allowed into the promised land because he disobeyed God in front of the Israelites.

    Who are our faith heroes? They are just ordinary people with lots of problems and faults. They mess up regularly. They also believe in God and try their best to obey him. Be very careful in judging the next person you meet. He or she just might be the next hero of faith in the making!

    Discussion Guide:

    How do you judge others? Sometimes we make up a whole extra set of rules for people to follow in order to be considered good Christians. These rules can define what clothes to wear, music to listen to, books to read, people to hang out with, and how to spend free time. When we create these rules for conformity without leaving room for the God-given individuality of each person, we can discourage those who are “different” from hearing and responding to the message of the gospel. Yes, there are biblical principles that guide our words and actions. But there is a lot of room for individual expression within those guidelines.

    We do not want to judge people because of outward appearance when the Bible tells us that God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). We do not want to withhold the love God commands us to extend to others (Matthew 22: 37-39) because they are different than we are. This is difficult for us because when we are with people like us we feel safe and comfortable. But maybe our discomfort will be the incentive for us to depend on God as we reach out to others, especially those who are different.
