Prayer For REVIVAL in America

SCRIPTURE

Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly. Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.

~James 3:1-2, NLT

QUOTE

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”  

~Thomas Edison

COMMENTARY

A young preacher moved on to his first church field after graduating Seminary. He was married but had no children. One of his first sermons was entitled “Ten Ways to Rear Children.”  After being there for another decade and having three kids of his own, he preached his sermon on raising children a second time but this time the title was “Ten Suggestions on Rearing Children.” Fifteen years later he came out with yet another version of the same sermon, “Ten Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make Rearing Children.” Which sermon do you think was best? I bet it was number three. We all make mistakes and if we learn from them, it becomes a valuable resource for instructing others. Making a mistake does not disqualify you from teaching; you just have to be honest and use your experience to help others. There is a possibility that you can keep them from making the same mistakes.

EXTRA

Another good Wednesday night crowd; the largest supper crowd we have had this year. We had to use overflow space. I really enjoyed the praise and worship and I loved the sermon. What makes that unusual is that I preached it. They had 76 in AWANA and our Nursery always has 10-12 which means we had around 180 total. We have only two more Wednesday nights suppers with home-made ice cream. We have the STEW on October 30 and then we will change the menu slightly. Hopefully there will be no charge on the STEW. I guess by now you have figured out that I love the Geico Camel: the dude cracks me up.

Guess What Day It Is? The Day after HUMP Day Baby!
