Turkey Joke #13

Why do birds fly south in the Fall?

Because it’s too far to walk.

Why walk when you can fly…or drive? But no matter how you get there, you first have to have a destination.

So here’s the big question: Where are you going?

“I’m getting a degree”…Great! Then what? 

“Then I’ll get a great job”…Great! Then what? 

“Then I’ll meet someone incredible and get married”…Great! Then what? 

“Then we’ll have kids”…Great! Then what? 

“Then I’ll make a lot of money”…Great! Then what? 

“Then I guess I’ll retire”…Great! Then what? 

“Then what?! Then I guess I’ll die”…Great! Then what? 

There’s more to this life than this life…Are you ready?

The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16).

What is stopping you from surrendering your life to Jesus Christ today. He created you. He loves you and has great plans for your life. Why would anyone want to say “no” to Him?

Paul Bell was our missionary to the Mexicans in Bastrop, Texas. One Saturday afternoon he mingled with the men who came to town at that time. He came in contact with a man in his sixties and found him to be a ready listener to the sweet story of Jesus and His love. Later this man was gloriously converted. He said, “I can’t read or write, so I want you to teach me John 3:16. And since my people love to sing, I want you to teach me a gospel song.” With painstaking care, Brother Bell taught him John 3:16 and a stanza of the song, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” The man also promised to come to church and be baptized.

Three weeks went by and the man didn’t show up. On the fourth Sunday he came and brought with him five other Mexicans. He walked down the aisle with them and said, “We are all here to be baptized.” In this brief time, with just a little bit of knowledge, he had led five men to Christ. He lived for two more years. Again and again he would come in and bring someone that he had won to Christ. The total reached about fifty. Then one day somebody came to Brother Bell and said, “An old Mexican woodcutter is dying, and he is calling for you.” Brother Bell went out and found the man. “I am so glad to see you,” said the woodcutter, “Will you quote my verse for me?” Brother Bell did this and then the man said, “Now will you sing my song for me?” Brother Bell lifted up his voice and sang. He saw the old man’s lips moving for a while, then they stopped. At the end of the song, he saw that the soul of the dear old Christian had slipped out to be with his God. But in two year’s time, he had won fifty souls with one verse of Scripture and one stanza of a song.*


Read Acts 1:8 from your Bible.


Evangelism is one of the five purposes God has for you. He created you to shine His life and light to all you meet. How effective do you feel in bringing other people to Christ? In what ways can you grow stronger in this area? What is your vision for seeing people saved?
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.


You are witness everyday—either for Christ or against Him.

Christmas Family Devotion #4


Provide a bite of fruit cake to each member of your family.

SAY—Just like the Egg Nog, fruit cake is a matter of taste. Some people love it, but some people think it tastes disgusting.

ASKWhat else can you think of that is disgusting? (Toilet water, Sumo wrestler sweat, body odor, etc.)

ASKDo you think lying is disgusting? 

ASKWhat about cheating?  Or stealing? Or saying bad words?

SAY—Sin is anything wrong you do and all sin is disgusting to God. Everything sin has and gives is the opposite of God.

ASKHow would you describe God? 

SAY—Sin is the opposite of God. God is love—Sin creates hate; God gives peace—Sin destroys peace; God leads you to do right—Sin makes you a slave to doing wrong; God takes care of you—Sin will always hurt you. But God loves you so much, that even though we’ve all done wrong things, He sent Jesus to die to make a way to take your sins away. That’s what Christmas is all about.

 Read John 3:16 from your Bible.

See if your child can say this verse. If not, begin saying it with them every night. This is an important verse for every student to know and understand.
