Our Daily Bread
Many people love to play games that test their knowledge. Recently, a colleague and I were testing a Bible-knowledge game. Since we were seated in an open area of our office, those nearby could hear our conversation. Soon questions ranging from Noah’s ark to the woman at the well were being answered by those within earshot of us. It was a delight to hear various staff members volunteering responses to Bible questions.Posted: March 8, 2014, 1:00 am

What stubborn people we can be! Selfish to the core, we want our way, not someone else's…and certainly not God's. Short-sighted, we see the immediate and the obvious, not the ultimate and the hidden. Easily irritated and impatient, our first reaction when taken advantage of is to retaliate, to establish a defensive posture and not give anyone an inch. Those efforts only intensify when faced with an adversary. Then we aren't satisfied with simply standing our ground and being determined…getting even becomes our agenda.

Mon - Fri 9pm.Underneath the surface that is not visible is our history, our environment, our struggles, our battles, our fears, our sufferings. Some of those things might be good; some of those things might be bad. But in the course of time those things going on under the surface will work their way out in the outer surface of our lives.

Mon/Wed/Sat 11pm3294 Tom Knox Classic: (Religion, Alcoholism) Quitting school well before graduation, Tom enrolls in the army and is injured by a mortar shell. He is returned home where an addiction to alcohol quickly seizes control of his life. His wife dies of a heart attack, and one day Tom wakes up in a shabby hotel, unaware of how he got there (and relieved of the cash in his wallet). Having lost his wife and his hope, Tom finds a new reason to live when he responds to a call for salvation given by a mission preacher.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmOwen frowned as his mother passed him a bowl of peas. "I know you don't care for peas, Owen," she said, "but I want you to take a few." Knowing better than to argue, he reluctantly dropped a few peas on his plate.
"Pretend they're something else," suggested his sister Shelly. "Pretend you're a missionary--like in the book I'm reading. Make believe the natives invited you to dinner. They offered you that food. You've never seen it before, but if you want them to accept you, you have to eat it. Otherwise you'll hurt their feelings."
"But they're not peas? Well, if they don't have peas in some countries, I'll go there!" Owen grinned, entering into the game. "What do I pretend these are?"
Shelly laughed. "Bugs!" she said. As Owen made a face, Shelly turned to her mother. "Some night, let's pretend we're in one of the countries where our church has missionaries, Mom," she suggested. "Like Japan. We could sit on the floor and eat with chopsticks."
"Yeah!" Owen nodded. "Only I vote for Italy. We could have pizza!"
"I like the idea!" approved Dad. "Let's choose one country each month. We could learn about the climate in that country, the kind of work people do there, and the kind of money they use."
"All right," said Mom. "I have an international cookbook. Shelly and I can figure out the menu and do the cooking."
"You won't make us eat bugs, will you?" asked little Danny with a frown.
Shelly laughed. "No bugs," she promised. "You can decorate placemats, Danny,"
"I'll help you," offered Owen. "I'll draw a map on one and pictures showing the country's products and trees or flowers on others. You can color them, okay?"
Dad leaned back in his chair. "And I'll report on the kind of work our missionaries do there--whether it's starting churches, working in hospitals, translating the Bible, or whatever. Why don't we have our first missionary dinner a week from today."
"Good," agreed Mom. "Now, Owen, since you're still in the United States, you need to finish your peas." Owen nodded, stabbed a single pea with his fork, and put it into his mouth.
How About You?
Could your family plan a missions night? If preparing a whole foreign dinner seems too difficult, perhaps Mom could prepare one special dish or dessert from a different country. In any case, find information about the country where the missionaries from your church work. Learn what kind of ministries they have and what the people there are like. Learn something about their countries. Doing this will help you know how to pray for the missionaries and the people with whom they work.

Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
Who doesn’t love baseball? I mean after all, it is Terrene’s Favorite Pastime. On this episode Liz learns to emulate winners on and off the diamond.
Has God ever asked you to be kind to a bully? If that’s really hard for you to do, you should meet Ananias!
Ananias was a Christian living in Damascus soon after Jesus’ resurrection. In Jerusalem, a huge bully was prowling the streets, looking for Christians to persecute. Who was this nasty anti-Christian? His name was Saul, and he HATED everything to do with Christians. One day Saul got permission to travel to Damascus to hunt for Christians there, arrest them, and bring them back to Jerusalem to be jailed.
Poor Ananias. He must have been nervous when he heard the news that Saul was approaching Damascus. He must have been shocked when God said, “Ananias, Saul is in Damascus. Go to the house where he is. He has lost his sight, and you are to go and restore his sight.” (Acts 9: 11-12)
Whoa! Did God really just tell Ananias to help Saul? Ananias replied, “Ummm, LORD, I have heard reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. He has come here to arrest all who call on your name.” (Acts 9: 13-14) God repeated his command to Ananias: go help Saul.
Ananias had a choice to make: should he follow God’s command and actually help Saul or should he hide from Saul? Ananias wisely chose to trust God and to obey God’s command. As he put his hand on Saul, Ananias said, “Saul, Jesus has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 13: 17)
What about you? The next time the Holy Spirit whispers to you to be kind to a bully, remember Ananias. He was scared, but he helped the bully. God is way bigger than any bully, and he likes to transform bullies, but what God loves most of all is…..when we trust and obey Him, even when he tells us to be kind to a mean person!
There are lots of people that our children admire. They are looking for people to be like, heroes to emulate. As a parent, you are looking for mentors for your children. They can be found within your own family, within your own neighborhood, and within your own church. Parents need the support of five other mentors for each of your children. These other adults can help be supports and encouragers for children. Parents need to be intentional and invite key people that reinforce the Christian principles that you want your child to see and emulate. If your child has only heroes from the media or from sports, that needs to change.
Just like your child and you, these people are also image-bearers of God and also sinners. Both things are true as your child finds mentors and heroes to admire. Look for coaches who can teach your child what it means to be a good player who understands sportsmanship. Point out the teachers who understand what it means to be a good communicator who respects others. Introduce your child to church members who can show your child what it means to be a strong Christian young person.
