On a plateau high above the Atacama Desert in Chile, the world’s largest radio telescope is giving astronomers a view of the universe never seen before. In an Associated Press article, Luis Andres Henao spoke of scientists from many countries “looking for clues about the dawn of the cosmos—from the coldest gases and dust where galaxies are formed and stars are born to the energy produced by the Big Bang.”Posted: July 24, 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 & 7:30pmSteven burst into the family room. "Mom, Melissa hit me!" he yelled.
"He hit me first." Melissa followed close on Steven's heels.
"I owed you one from last time," Steven roared. "The Bible says if someone hits you, you have the right to hit him back!" He glared at his sister. "In the Old Testament it says, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' I read it myself."
"That passage isn't talking about personal vengeance," said Dad. "It was a civil law to ensure justice in the nation of Israel. People who return blow for blow find the score is never settled. Their actions are never balanced. Someone always owes someone else a blow. It's like . . . like your mother's checkbook and the bank statement." All heads--including Mom's--turned to him in surprise.
"Mom says they don't balance," added Dad. "We put money into a checking account, and then we keep track of how much is spent. The bank keeps track, too. We should agree with them on the amount that's left, but a minute ago, Mom complained that they don't come out the same--they don't balance."
"That's true," admitted Mom with a rueful smile.
"Well, for our actions to balance, I had to hit Melissa," insisted Steven. "Like I said, I owed her a good punch."
"Jesus has a better plan," Dad said. "He says to return good for evil. When you do that, you'll often be surprised to find that the other person changes, too, and the action between the two of you does balance out. That's the only way to really settle the score. Why don't you try it?"
"You mean whenever Steven hits me, I'm supposed to do something good for him?" Melissa asked with a frown.
"God says to overcome evil with good," repeated Dad. "Nobody said it would be easy, but the results are worth the effort."
Steven and Melissa looked at each other. "We'll try," they said in unison.
"Hey, this will sure be different," added Steven. "Um . . . you want a piece of my candy, Melissa?"
"Sure," she replied, "and you can play one of my games if you want to."
Mom smiled. "Great," she said. "That balances one account. Now if I could just get my checkbook and the bank statement to balance . . ."
How About You?
Are you keeping track of the wrong treatment others give you? Are you figuring out how you can get back at them? God's way to settle the issue is for you to do something good for them. Think of someone who recently wasn't very nice to you. Then think of something you could do that would be nice for him or her. Now go do it and see what happens. You'll feel a lot better when you use God's way to balance your account with that person
Today's Key Verse:
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21)
Today's Key Thought:
Return good for evil

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?
