January Joke #17

Q: Do you know how to stop a snowman from smelling?

A: Take his nose away!

We all lose things in life…Loved ones. Friends. Belongings. Dreams…But there is nothing greater that you can lose than your own soul.

The Bible says in Matthew 16:26, “For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?”

What is your life worth? God has shown you what it’s worth because He loved you so much He gave His own Son to make a way to save you.

January Joke #16

Q: What’s white and goes up?

A: A confused snowflake!

No matter what you’ve done, God can forgive your sins. In the Bible King David committed adultery with the wife of one of his soldiers. She became pregnant and to cover it up, he had the soldier killed and then married her. When he finally repented and returned to God, he wrote Psalm 51 as a prayer. In Psalm 51:7 he writes, “Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

No matter what you’ve done, God loves you and has great plans for your life.

January Joke #15

Q: What kind of ball doesn’t bounce?

A: A snowball.

A snowball doesn’t bounce because it’s not made of bouncy things. Did you know that you weren’t made to sin? That’s right. God created you to know and walk with Him but we’ve all done wrong things. That’s why God sent Jesus and only Jesus can “save” us from our sins.

The Bible says in Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

January Joke #14

Q: What’s an ig?

A: An eskimo’s home without a loo!

If you don’t have a toilet in your home, you’ve got to go somewhere else to find what you’re looking for. In life, people are looking for more too – more than just breathing and existing. True life is only found in Jesus Christ.

January Joke #13

Q: What did one snowman say to the other snowman?

A: Do you smell carrots?

Do you know what smells good to God?

The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 that those who know and share Christ are a sweet aroma to Him. The truth that Jesus Christ can save you from your sin and give you real life is the greatest message of all.

January Joke #12

Knock, knock!
Who’s there?
It’s Snow.
It’s Snow who?
It’s Snow use. I forgot my name again!

Did you know that James 1:22-25 says that a person who is a “hearer” of the Word but not a “doer” is like a person who looks in the mirror and goes his way and immediately forgets what he looks like? The idea that someone could forget their name or forget what they look like is utterly ridiculous – But no more ridiculous than someone who knows the truth but doesn’t live it.

God has great plans for your life and these plans begin by you surrendering everything to Him. To learn more – Click HERE.

January Joke #11

Knock, knock!
Who’s there?
It’s Snow.
It’s Snow who?
It’s Snowbody!

When God made you, He designed you for a purpose. God has great plans for your life. You’re NOT a “snowbody” or a nobody. God made you for a reason. He created you to walk with Him everyday. And that’s why Jesus came–to make a way to save you from your sins and bring you back to Him. But you’ll only discover what God has in store for your life on the other side of completely surrendering everything to Him.

January Joke #10

Q: Why don’t mountains get cold in the winter?

A: They have snow caps.

This is a play on words. In truth, it doesn’t matter whether a mountain has a cap or not, if it’s cold outside, it’s going to be cold. You see, we become what we are surrounded by. And the same is true with people. Because many are surrounded by sin and darkness, they allow these things to have a place in their lives.

Have you allowed things in your life that don’t belong? How pure are you? Are you doing anything that you know is wrong? If you were to stand before God right now, what do you think He would say to you?

God loves you and has great plans for your life. To learn more – Click HERE.

January Joke #9

Q: Where does a snowman keep his money?

A: In a snow bank.

Some people measure success by the size of their bank account but that’s not what really matters. Listen to what the Bible says in Matthew 6:19-20: “Don’t lay up treasures for yourselves on the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume, and where thieves don’t break through and steal…”

God has a life for you that far exceeds anything this world could give you. To learn more about this life – Click HERE.

January Joke #8

Q: What do Snowmen call their kids?

A: Chill-dren

Every parent wants their kids to succeed but what is success? Consider this statement: “I don’t care if my kids grow up to be ditch diggers or the president of the United States. Their success will only be measured by how they know, follow and love Jesus Christ.”

It’s great to leave your kids an inheritance but far greater to leave them a heritage of godliness.

January Joke #7

Q: What do you call a snowman on rollerblades?

A: A snow mobile

Things in life are always on the move and if you’re not careful, life can just pass you by. So, here’s a question to consider: What are you living for? What really matters in your life? And when life is over, what will there be to show that you ever lived?

Teaching in a Visual Way

Imagine I bring you your favorite meal. It’s everything you want. It looks delicious but it’s not on a shiny plate.  I bring it to you on a dirty trash can lid. Did it suddenly lose its appeal?

Sometimes our problem in sharing God’s truth is not  what we are saying but  how we are say it. When planning to teach or preach, there are two important questions to ask:

  •  What am I going to say?
  • How am I going to say it?

Most people stop with the first question. But in a visual culture, people will always learn best and remember longer what is brought to them in a visual way. In other words:  Don’t just say it–show it.

Have a Thankful Heart

Read:

A mother and a son lived in a certain forest. One day when they were out a tornado surprised them. The mother clung to a tree and tried to hold her son but the swirling winds carried him into the sky. He was gone. The woman began to weep and pray, “Please Lord bring back my boy. He is all I have. I’ll do anything not to lose him. If you’ll bring him back I’ll serve you all my days.” Suddenly the boy toppled from the sky right at her feet, a bit messed up but safe and sound. His mother joyfully brushed him off. Then she stopped for a moment and appearing a bit frustrated, looked to the sky and yelled, “He had a hat, Lord. Where is his hat?!”

What a reminder about thankfulness. The Lord has so richly provided for us yet sometimes call out for more. We say, “Thank you Lord but where’s the hat?!”*

Reflect

Read Philippians 1:3-5 from your Bible.

Respond

Prayerfully consider what you have read today. How thankful is your heart? Then take a few moments to pray for yourself, your students, and others with whom you serve in ministry. 

A Final Word

Thank you for letting the Lord use you to make a difference in the lives of kids.

Encouragement

Read:

In the Fall when you see geese flying south for the winter, they will most likely be flying in a “V” formation. They fly that way on purpose. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately behind. By using this flying formation, the entire flock adds about 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag of trying to go it alone, and quickly returns to the formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the flock. As the lead goose gets tired, he rotates to the back of the formation and another goose flies the point.

You will also hear the geese “honking” at one another. Many believe that this is their way of encouraging those in the lead.*

Reflect

Read Hebrews 3:13 from your Bible.

Respond

This week how can you encourage the students in your class? How can you encourage someone else in the Children’s Ministry? How can you let the Lord encourage you?

Prayerfully consider what you have read today. Then take a few moments to pray for yourself, your students, and others with whom you serve in ministry.

What Matters

Read:

Clovis Chappell, a minister from a century back, used to tell the story of two paddleboats. They left Memphis about the same time, traveling down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. As they traveled side by side, sailors from one vessel made a few remarks about the snail’s pace of the other. Words were exchanged. Challenges were made. And the race began. Competition became vicious as the two boats roared through the Deep South.

One boat began falling behind. Not enough fuel. There had been plenty of coal for the trip, but not enough for a race. As the boat dropped back, an enterprising young sailor took some of the ship’s cargo and tossed it into the ovens. When the sailors saw that the supplies burned as well as the coal, they fueled their boat with the material they had been assigned to transport. They ended up winning the race, but burned their cargo.*

Reflect

Read Psalm 127:2 from your Bible.

Respond

What really matters in life?

The Rat-Race of Life Philosophy #1: Go to work to have the money to buy the beans to eat the beans to have the energy to go to work to have the money…

The Rat-Race of Life Philosophy #2: Get all you can, can all you get, then sit on the can!

Neither of these philosophies will ever bring satisfaction. They may bring on a heart attack, a dozen other illnesses and an early grave, but not satifaction. Those who run in the “Rat-Race of Life” will end up like the boat above—at the end of the race empty and with nothing to show for it. Only Christ can truly satisfy. So this week, stop running and start relating. Life is about your relationship with God–That’s eternal life (John 17:3). Your relationship with Christ is what really matters.

Prayerfully consider what you have read today. Then take a few moments to pray for yourself, your students, and others with whom you serve in ministry.
