Our Daily Bread
A television commercial I enjoy at Christmastime shows two neighbors in a friendly competition with each other to see who can spread the most Christmas cheer. Each keeps an eye on the other as he decorates his house and trees with lights. Then each upgrades his own property to look better than the other’s. They then start competing over who can give the most extravagantly to other neighbors, running around cheerfully sharing gifts.Posted: December 10, 2013, 5:00 am

Romans 8:31-37; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 1 John 5:4, 7
Victory in Jesus Christ. It's what many Christians want. It's what we've been promised by Christ Himself. But we often find ourselves asking, “Why don't I experience more victory in Christ?”
Isn't it interesting that in passages on Christian victory, the Bible doesn't mention one time the blare of a bugle or the stomping of an infantry or the clanking armour of a soldier or the bursting sounds of battle on the landscapes around us? The victorious life finds its source in Christ Himself and in our quiet submission to the empowering work the Holy Spirit.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pm"Miss Clark gave me the part of the devil in our class play," Tony told his parents as the family sat around the dinner table one evening, "but I really don't want to do it. I don't think God would like that, do you?"
"No," said Mom, passing the casserole dish. "Did you tell her how you feel?"
"I was going to, but . . ." Tony's explanation was interrupted by his sister.
"What's in that casserole?" Carrie asked with a frown. "I'm not eating it!"
"You need to eat a little," insisted Mom. She put a spoonful on Carrie's plate and another on Jenna's.
"I was going to tell Miss Clark," said Tony, "but I overheard Fiona talking to her first. Fiona was supposed to be a witch in the play, and I heard her tell Miss Clark she wouldn't do it. Miss Clark got angry, so I was afraid . . ."
This time Tony was interrupted by Jenna. "Mom, is it okay if I eat extra vegetables instead of the rest of this casserole, please?" she asked.
Mom hesitated. "I guess so," she agreed, "but take two more bites of that first."
"What can I do about the play?" Tony asked. He sighed as Carrie took over the conversation.
"I'm not eating another bite of this," she declared. "Why should I if Jenna doesn't have to finish hers?"
"Because your attitude is bad," Dad spoke sternly. "Jenna asked politely if she could have a substitute. You announced that you were not going to eat yours, and you said it very rudely."
Mom turned to Tony. "Maybe that's the answer to your problem," she said. "Did Fiona ask to be excused from the part assigned to her, or did she just say she wouldn't do it? Did she politely explain why she didn't want the part?"
"She just said she wasn't going to do it," replied Tony. "She really was pretty nasty about it. I guess that might be why Miss Clark got angry."
Dad nodded. "Attitude doesn't always make the difference, but whether or not our requests are granted often depends more on how we ask than on what we ask," he said, as much to Carrie as to Tony.
The next day, Tony came home wearing a grin. "Guess what?" he said. "I told Miss Clark why I'd like to be excused from the play. She said, 'Sure. If that's how you feel, you shouldn't do it.' A good attitude really can make a difference!"
How About You?
When you're asked to do something you feel is wrong, do you say no? You should, but say it in the right way. Daniel "purposed in his heart" (made up his mind ahead of time) that he would not do anything wrong. You need to do that, too, but don't do it with a rebellious, proud attitude. Honor God in the way you speak and act. Be respectful but firm, as Daniel was. The result may depend more on your attitude than on what you say.
Today's Key Verse:
Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself.
Today's Key Thought:
Do right with a right attitude
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
The school play is coming up and Liz is sure that he will not only have the lead role, but also be asked to direct. That doesn't happen, but Miss Wattle does give him the role of Old Ben which Liz still uses to be a "star" with sunglasses, a chinchilla beret, silk scarf, and bodyguard. This causes Chamy and Miss Wattle to "fire" Liz and replace him with Morrie. Liz finally realizes that he once again has fallen to pride.
Have you ever heard of King Joash? King Uzziah? King Hezekiah? What do these kings have in common?
They were all kings of Judah before Jesus was born. They all had unusual names. They all began their kingships in the same way: by doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord. What a great way to begin an important job!
- Joash was only seven years old when he became king. The temple of God had been vandalized and neglected, so King Joash collected money and restored the temple.
- King Uzziah was 16 when he became king. He asked the priest what God wanted him to do and then went out and did it.
- King Hezekiah repaired the temple. He led his nation in bringing sacrifices to the temple, celebrating Passover again, and worshiping God.
These three kings did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. How cool! They had one more thing in common. They all got the same disease: PRIDE!
After the priest who had guided him died, King Joash turned his back on God. He worshipped idols and killed anyone who reminded him to worship only God. King Uzziah got so proud, he thought he could go into the temple and burn incense (this was only for the priests to do). He got very angry when the priests told him he couldn't do that. God punished him with leprosy for the rest of his life. Hezekiah got very proud and thought he didn't need God. The Bible says "God's anger came upon him and Judah. Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem." (2 Chronicles 32: 25-26)
Pride is sneaky. It creeps up on you and makes you think you don't need God. It gives you the feeling that you can handle things without God-better than God. God hates the sin of pride because it turns our hearts away from him and from loving others. Be on the watch for pride. If you do come down with it, the best thing to do is give it right to God.
What does it mean to be proud? Is it feeling good about a job well done? Is it self-respect? Or self-esteem? I once received a congratulations card from a friend saying that she was "proud" of me, and in parentheses she wrote "the good kind." What she wrote highlighted what we know about pride-there is a good kind and a bad kind.
Self-esteem or self-respect gone awry can become the bad kind of pride. But it seems that the pride that the Bible warns us about can be subtler than this. It is an almost sub-conscious sense of entitlement that says, "Because I am who I am, or I have what I have, I am better than you and I deserve more than you."
Because this is so subtle, parents need take care that they are not creating an environment where their children will absorb attitudes toward themselves and others that are really pride in disguise. This can't be done without prayer and the help of the Holy Spirit. Pray that God will give you a teachable spirit that is open to recognize, confess, and repent under the guidance of the Spirit so that the only pride that exists in your home is rooted in the cross of Christ (Galatians 6:14).
