While I was talking with a gifted pianist, she asked me if I played any musical instruments. When I responded, “I play the radio,” she laughed and asked if I had ever wanted to play any instrument. My embarrassed answer was, “I took piano lessons as a boy but gave it up.” Now, in my adult years, I regret not continuing with the piano. I love music and wish I could play today. That conversation was a fresh reminder to me that life is often constituted by the choices we make—and some of them produce regret.Posted: July 22, 2014, 1:00 am

1 Corinthians 9:19-23
Leaders without a purpose are like ships without a captains. Their decisions are often based on surveys and polls instead of substance and principles. They waffle and flip-flop on issues. Their followers are frustrated, disillusioned, and disloyal. On the other hand, successful leaders have a sense of personal mission. Their decisions are based on general principles and a big-picture perspective rather than popular opinion or emotional whims. They can communicate clear objectives to their followers and measure success by more than just gut feelings. Each person needs a personal mission.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmAt bedtime, Toby listened, wide-eyed, as Mom read a chapter in a story about Jon, a boy who was Toby's age. "Jon was delighted when Mr. Rand, a gardener, agreed to let Jon do some work for him. 'These are special plants, Jon,' said Mr. Rand, pointing to some flowers. 'Hoe around them very carefully.' Jon nodded, but a few minutes later, he carelessly stepped right on one of those flowers." Mom paused to show the picture of the broken plant to Toby and his brother Seth.
"Did he get fired for breaking it?" asked Toby. "Read what happened, Mom."
Mom smiled and continued reading. "As Jon stared at the plant in dismay, a young man walked up to him. 'What's the trouble, bud?' the stranger asked. Jon told him what had happened. 'It will be all right--I promise you,' said the young man. 'Keep busy with your work, and I'll check on you later.' Jon sighed and got busy again, but he was sure he'd be punished when Mr. Rand heard about it.
"At noon the young man returned. 'Come with me,' he said. Jon followed him, and as they neared the place where the broken plant had been, Jon was surprised to see a lovely flower--the same kind as the one he had broken. 'Do you like the plant I replaced for you?' asked Jon's new friend.
"Jon nodded. 'But why would you pay for what I broke?' he asked. 'Who are you?'
"The man smiled. 'I'm James. My father owns this business,' he said. 'I once broke something I couldn't fix, and the son of the owner took care of it for me. So knowing how bad you felt, I wanted to do for you what He did for me.'
"'What did you break?' asked Jon eagerly.
"'The Lord's greatest commandment--to love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind,' replied James. 'His Son Jesus paid for my sin and gave me a new life.'
"'Wow!' murmured Jon. 'Thank you for helping me.' He paused. 'Will you tell me more about Jesus?' Jon asked. With a big smile, James nodded."
Mom closed the book and reached for Toby's Bible. "Tomorrow we'll read another story about Jon," she said, "but right now we'll take a little time to learn more about Jesus."
"Like Jon did," said Seth, "only we'll read about Him from the Bible."
"Yep," agreed Toby. "Okay, Mom. I'm ready to listen."
How About You?
Do you realize that you have broken God's commandments--His rules? You deserve to be punished. But God's Son Jesus stands ready to help you, too. He took the punishment you deserve and paid the price to remove your sin. When you confess to God that you are a sinner, and accept what Jesus did for you, He will give you a new and clean heart.

Listen to this week's episode
Verse: Matthew 5:38-39
You have heard that it was said, “Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I tell you: Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you.
Have you ever been disappointed? You are not alone. Everyone faces disappointments. Can you name the following Bible people who experienced major disappointment?
__________ This Bible person lost his animals, his 10 children, and his health. (Job 1)
__________ This Bible person wanted to have a child, but she had to wait until she was 90 years old to have a baby. (Genesis 21)
__________ This Bible person pretended he didn't know Jesus and then realized that Jesus knew what he had done. (Luke 22: 61)
__________ This Bible person thought he was the only person left in the whole country who still worshipped God. (I Kings 19: 14)
How did you do? Job was the man whose faith in God was tested by Satan when Satan took away everything Job had. Sarah ached to have her own child, but she faced daily disappointment until she was 90 when her child Isaac was born. The Bible says that Peter cried when he realized that he had denied knowing Jesus. Can you imagine how Jesus felt? Elijah proved God's power to the Israelites over and over. Yet he still felt like he was the only one left who believed in God and not in idols.
Have you been really disappointed? Being a Christian does not mean that you'll never be disappointed-at least not until you get to heaven. Being a Christian does mean that when you are so disappointed the even crying doesn't help, God is still with you. He was with Job, Sarah, Peter, and Elijah. He promises to listen to your disappointment and to face it with you. You are never alone when you are a Christian-even when you are facing huge disappointment!
It's easy to love someone who loves you back; or someone who thinks like you do; or someone you like. But then there are the people you don't like; those you disagree with; those who have hurt you; people who just are not nice to you or to anyone else. What do you do with them? How do you treat them? We can have a variety of reactions to these people: we can get revenge, we can ignore them, we can despise them in our hearts even while we are nice to them in person. We have lots of ways to get around Jesus' command to love them.
Loving our enemies means forgiveness, it means absorbing a hurt even when it is undeserved, it means recognizing that person as a fellow image bearer of God and treating them that way. One pastor said recently that the way to true freedom is forgiveness and release-forgiving the hurts and releasing myself and the person who hurt me to Christ. This is a real challenge for many of us. It requires a humble spirit and a love for Christ that overrides the hurts we experience.
This kind of spirit and love starts in our homes. When we practice humility and forgiveness there, it becomes a habit that blesses our interactions with people inside and outside the house-at work, school, and everywhere else. Do you demonstrate this toward your children? Is it a part of the family values that you practice everyday?
