ENCOURAGING WORDS FROM THE WORD
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Encouraging Word: “The Kingdom of God is like Corn”

Yesterday, Terry briefly discussed the fact that corn can be grown in a variety of colors; some ears of corn are even multicolored! Restaurants, however, do not sell their customers “colored” corn; they only sell yellow, because that’s normal, right?

In addition to God creating people of different color, He gave us all different gifts. Listen as Terry reads from 1 Corinthians 12:4-11…



KIDS AND SCREEN ADDICTION
Discussed by John Horvat
with Return to Order www.ReturnToOrder.org

There is the mistaken impression that computers represent the future and that everyone, especially the very young, should become computer savvy as soon as possible. According to this view, failure to expose children to high technology handicaps their ability to function in the real world.

Even Steve Jobs admitted that he limited his own children’s time with a screen – TV, computers, phones, video games. He knew the dangers of screen-addiction. Listen as John Horvat offers some more advice…

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is screen addiction a real problem?

Was Steve Jobs a hypocrite?

Did Steve Jobs’ children become disturbed young adults by being deprived of screen time?

Do parents need to let their children be children – free from electronic devices?



FENCES MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS
Discussed by John Horvat
with Return to Order www.ReturnToOrder.org

Would a border wall make us better neighbors? Will the alternative (no borders) be our ultimate demise? John Horvat, the author of “Return to Order”, offers some insight…

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do good fences make good neighbors?

Are there public parks where anyone and everyone could walk into your space, sleep in your space, recreate in your space, and prepare meals in your space?

Do you lock your windows and doors?

Would you allow anyone to simply walk into your office, set up a desk, install a phone line, and run a business – all on your dime?

What does “trespassing” mean? Are there both civil and federal trespassing laws?

Can anyone start their own meeting/group at a church without permission? Can anyone pass their own offering plate at church and take the money for themselves?

Are walls/boundaries necessary and proper?

Did God instruct His people to set up boundaries? This is a loaded question! Listen for the answer!

Are some Americans alone in their desire to have a border wall? Or, are there countries across the world who have strict border laws?

Do we just need to follow the law?



CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “Fear and Wisdom” and is taken from Psalm 25:12 (NIV) “Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.”

Wise decisions, based on a fear of the Lord, lead to blessings. Foolish decisions, lacking a fear of the Lord, lead to suffering. Chuck Bentley references the final hours of King Saul in today’s devotion (1 Samuel 28:7)

Chuck goes on to write: “Christianity is a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ, the living Lord who gives us guidance through his thoughts and ways.

Further Scripture reading: 2 Kings Chapters 5-7



JESUS: THE TEACHER
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 2

This summer, Mark will be digging deeper into the words spoken by Jesus. The goal and purpose of these devotions are to give us a better understanding about Jesus and draw us closer to him.

Mark Lanier is back this week with a look at five different devotionals from Jesus.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Second Devotional: “Don’t Fake Flatter God” Matthew 22:15-18

Why were the Pharisees trying to butter Jesus up? Jesus’ response was classic – and awesome!

Remember: God knows the difference between flattery and praise!

Third Devotional: “Jesus: A Worthy Teacher” Mark 12:28-34

What is a scribe? Why did he ask Jesus: “What is the Greatest Commandment?” Was he being genuine in his inquiry or was he trying to trick Jesus? Tune in tomorrow for more…

CHILDREN ARE A GIFT
Discussed by Steven Morris
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

We are all part of the family of God. Does God want us to just survive in His family? Or does He want us to thrive?

Psalms 127:3 “Children are a gift from the Lord.”

This week, Champion Forest Baptist Church Student Pastor Steven Morris will be encouraging us, as adults and mentors, to invest in the lives in the generation coming behind us.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Would you ever tell Jesus “no” to his face? Probably not! Then why do you say “no” to the church?

How are you sharing the Gospel on a daily basis to the younger generation? Are you encouraging them to share the Gospel as well?

Why was Jesus indignant toward the disciples? BONUS FACT: This is the only place in the Gospel that states Jesus was indignant.

Do you have a Bible-saturated home?

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
