For My “Friends”

You know, of course, that every generation is defined by some tv show they watched. Maybe you are from the “Mash” generation. Or, perhaps, the “Seinfeld” generation.

Well, today, this clip is for the “Friends” generation: Jennifer Aniston on “The Ellen Show”

Have a great weekend!

 

The Annoying

You know that annoying friend? Or, your annoying co-worker? The one who gets on every single one of your nerves? The one who drives you absolutely to the limit? Yep. Everybody has one.

I saw a list the other day of the most annoying tv characters. Among them were: Kimmy Gibbler from “Full House,” Screech from “Saved By the Bell,” Arnold Horshack from “Welcome Back, Kotter,” April Kepner from “Grey’s Anatomy,” and Georgina Sparks from “Gossip Girl.” Do any of those ring a bell with you? I love April this year on “Grey’s,” but she has always been annoying!

It’s difficult to tolerate the behavior of some people. But, God expects us to do just that. He says over and over that we need to get along with everyone; we don’t have to like everyone, or be best friends with them. However, we do need to get along.

So…who’s the annoying person that comes to your mind? Will you be able to be tolerant today? Give it a try.

Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Romans 12

What Does LOVE Mean?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year olds: “What does love mean?” (from an article by Ladan Lashkari).  Here are some of the answers:

1. “When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”   Rebecca – age 8

2. “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”   Billy – age 4

3. “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.”   Bobby – age 7 

4. “If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.”   Nikka – age 6

5. “Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.”   Chris – age 7

6. And the final one…

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

No one loves you more than God who sent his own son into the world as a sacrifice for you.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3

Knock It Off

Knock-off brands. Yuck! Well, that Mountain Lightning almost tastes like Mountain Dew. NOT! Even the names. Instead of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, it’s You’d Butter Believe It! I mean seriously…really?

These knock-offs may look like the real thing; the names may sound close to the real names. But…they don’t taste like the real thing because they are not the real thing!

You may try to improve your life by doing yoga, reading self-help books, following your horoscope. There are a myriad of things out there. OR…you might look to the real thing…God. He is not a knock-off brand. He can do what he says. He always comes through.

You may use a knock-off brand until you taste the real thing. After that, it’s hard to go back, isn’t it. It’s so much better. Well…scope out God. See what you think. He’s the real thing.

But God is the real thing—the living God, the eternal King. Jeremiah 10

Yeah. Uh huh. Sure. Sure.

Have you ever had to call an office to clear something up? Maybe they got your bill wrong. Or, you needed to reschedule an appointment. But, you can tell right off, the person you’re talking to isn’t really listening to you. You don’t have the person full attention. You keep talking…but it’s really not doing much good. Later, you find out you were right when the problem isn’t rectified.

Does that not make you mad! Does that not get your drawers in a bunch! Grind your gears! Push every one of your buttons! Few things are worse than not being listened to. It says to you: You’re not important to me. I don’t care about you.

That will never happen with Jesus. It’s not in his character. If you read about Jesus, you’ll find he listened to everyone. Even a despised leper who fell with his face down in front of Jesus and asked Jesus to heal him. Jesus said: “I am willing. Be clean.” He always values what you have to say. He always cares. And, today Jesus still listens to everyone.

Do you need someone who will listen to you? Someone to give you their full attention? Someone who hears your every word? Someone who answers you?

It’s as easy as speaking. That easy. Seek Jesus.

Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. Luke 5

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Five movies you should see before you die (in no particular order):

1. The Shawshank Redemption

2. Dead Poet’s Society

3. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

4. Braveheart

5. Planes, Trains & Automobiles

My dream in high school was to do a Ferris Bueller. I didn’t have the guts. I did go off campus once during lunch, which was against the rules. But then, I didn’t really enjoy lunch because I was worried about getting caught trying to sneak back on campus!

Of course, these listed movies are all fictional stories. I guess you might say “Braveheart” was historical fiction. Some movies, especially ones on tv, may say “based on a true story.” Many need to say LOOSELY based on a true story.

The stories in the Bible are not fiction. Nor, are they based on a true story. The stories in the Bible are actual events. They’re true. So, when you read one, remember those were real people, not actors, and those events actually took place. That might cause you to read in an entirely different light.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m headed over to my friend’s house. He’s going to show me his dad’s 1961 Ferrari GT250. What’d you say? Take it out for a spin? Oh, no, his dad would kill us! (I think I see a parade in the distance. What? I hear singing, “Shake it up, baby, twist and shout.” It’s gonna be a good day!)

Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth….  2 Timothy 3

Watch closely. Ferris? Or me?
