Mont Saint-Michel is a tidal island located about a half-mile off the coast of Normandy, France. For centuries it has been the site of an abbey and monastery that has attracted religious pilgrims. Until the construction of a causeway, it was notorious for its dangerous access that resulted in the death of some pilgrims. At low tide it is encompassed by sand banks, and at high tide it is surrounded by water. Accessing the island was a cause for fear.Posted: July 29, 2014, 1:00 am

Influential 18th-century American preacher Jonathan Edwards experienced frustration early in his ministry. His struggles could have given him an excuse to hang up his wig and retire his frock. Yet because of a strong sense of responsibility to his mission, he sparked the Great Awakening that eventually spread throughout the 13 colonies, across denominational lines, and even into the wild frontiers of America. His commitment was expressed in seventy resolutions he had composed before the age of 20.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmThis party is fun! thought Jack, wiggling impatiently as his Sunday school teacher tied a blindfold over his eyes. A big picture of a donkey without a tail was tacked on the wall, and it was Jack's turn to be blindfolded and turned around a few times before walking to the donkey and attaching a tail. This will be easy, he thought. He had noticed that the donkey was just a little to his left and about as high as his shoulders. I'll win the prize for getting the tail closest to where it should be.
When he was ready, Jack took a few wobbly steps, reached out and . . . there! It was done. He snatched off his blindfold and couldn't believe his eyes. There stood the donkey with a tail growing right out of its nose! Jack joined in the laughter as Mrs. Gates blindfolded another boy who was ready to try.
The next Sunday, Mrs. Gates reminded the kids in Jack's class about the game they had played. She pointed to the donkey, which was still in place on the wall. "It would be easy to go right now and pin the tail in the right place," she said. "What made it hard during the game?"
"We were blindfolded," said one of the girls, "and we were dizzy from being turned around."
"That's right," agreed Mrs. Gates. "Do you know that Christians are sometimes like that, too? Things that keep us from doing the right thing and serving God are like spiritual blindfolds. What do you think some of those might be?"
Jack's hand shot up. "Selfishness," he suggested, "and being jealous of other kids or hating them."
"Or being lazy or stubborn," said another boy.
Mrs. Gates nodded. "What else?" she asked.
"What about watching bad TV?" offered one of the girls.
"Or watching good programs or reading a good book when we should be doing something else--like going to church or helping somebody," suggested another.
"Good thinking," approved Mrs. Gates. "Let's ask God to help us recognize the things or activities that are like spiritual blindfolds to us." She opened her Bible. "Now turn to Second Peter, and we'll read about some of the qualities God says we should have in our lives. He says it's when we lack these things that we become shortsighted--as though we're wearing a blindfold."
Pages rustled as the kids turned in their Bibles to the second book of Peter.
How About You?
What things blindfold you to opportunities to serve the Lord? Are you so busy enjoying hobbies, riding your bike, and just having fun that you don't notice when you could serve by helping someone?Do things such as jealousy, wanting your own way, or laziness keep you from being a witness for Jesus? Don't wear a spiritual blindfold! Ask God to help you develop the qualities listed in today's Scripture. Ask Him to give you the desire and strength to live a life pleasing to Him.
Today's Key Verse:
He who lacks these things (godly qualities) is shortsighted, even to blindness. (2 Peter 1:9)
Today's Key Thought:
Get rid of spiritual blindfolds
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
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.
