Food for Thought



 Break your problem into parts, and handle one part at a time.

 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”…

(Matthew 6:19-20a)

He would gift-wrap it, put it out on the curb in front of his house, and invariably someone driving by would see that wrapped box, stop, and pick it up. And the man would be behind the curtains, watching those people drive away with their gift-wrapped garbage!

So many times, that’s what the devil does. He just takes the things of this world and wraps them up so beautifully. But what we get isn’t treasure-it turns out to be trash.

Don’t let the devil cheat you-don’t cling to the worthless things of this world, but use your resources and energy wisely to invest in souls and store up eternal treasures in Heaven!

Add up everything you have that money can’t buy and death can’t take away.

May the good Lord bless and keep you in his hands.

A Bigger Frying Pan

Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn’t. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back. The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. “Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?” he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, “I only have a small frying pan.”

Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, big dreams, big jobs, big opportunities that God gives us. Our faith is too small. We laugh at that fisherman who didn’t figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan; yet how ready are we to increase the size of our faith?

Whether it’s a problem or a possibility, God will never give you anything bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk into anything God brings our way.

You can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13). Nothing is too big for God. Stop telling God you’ve got big problems, but instead tell your problems to a big God!

Depending on how much chicken you have, add or remove amounts of ingredients.

If your husband is like mine you will add some form of hot sauce. You may serve salad in croissants or your choice of bread, or if you wish you may serve with crackers.
