    In many countries, health laws prohibit reselling or reusing old mattresses. Only landfills will take them. Tim Keenan tackled the problem and today his business employs a dozen people to extract the individual components of metal, fabric, and foam in old mattresses for recycling. But that’s only part of the story. Journalist Bill Vogrin wrote, “Of all the items Keenan recycles . . . it’s the people that may be his biggest success” (The Gazette, Colorado Springs). Keenan hires men from halfway houses and homeless shelters, giving them a job and a second chance. He says, “We take guys nobody else wants.”

    Genesis 19:15-29

    The total annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah reminds us that God's gracious patience and merciful long-suffering have their limits. Though He delays judgment for the sake of the salvation of those who will believe and repent, He never dismisses His wrath against unrepentant wickedness. Many today presume upon the grace and mercy of a forgiving God, assuming that these characteristics define His total character. Such people have failed to learn the lesson of Sodom and Gomorrah: eventually God will say, “Enough!”

    "Mom, look at Tommy!" Marissa laughed as her little brother waved his spoon and smeared mashed potatoes over his face. He dipped the spoon back into his bowl and then put it to his mouth. "Big boy!" cheered Marissa. "You got it all in this time."

    "Pretty soon he'll be eating everything by himself," said Mom. She patted Tommy's curly head as she reached for a spoon to feed him the last bit of food from his bowl. Then she handed him his cup of milk. "There you go," she said. "You can finish that while Mommy clears the table."

    "Can I be excused to finish my history project for school?" asked Marissa.

    Mom nodded. "Yes," she said, "and if you haven't had your devotions yet, do that, too, before you play a game or watch TV."

    Marissa sighed. "Sometimes I think I might as well skip having devotions by myself," she said. "I don't understand the Bible very well. I get a lot more out of our family devotions because you and Dad explain things I don't get. Why can't I just wait to read the Bible on my own until I grow up--till I'm an adult?"

    "Well . . . Let's see if I can explain it," Mom said thoughtfully. "What if Tommy wouldn't try to feed himself until he was . . . oh, maybe ten years old? Would that be a good thing?" Mom asked.

    Marissa slowly shook her head.

    "We're happy to help him when he needs it, but we're also glad to see him try to feed himself--even when he misses his mouth and makes a mess," Mom added. "As he practices, he'll become better at it."

    Marissa smiled at Tommy. "He's getting better already," she said.

    "Yes," agreed Mom. "Now . . . you've heard the Bible called spiritual food, haven't you?" Marissa nodded. "Well, getting spiritual food by going to church and Bible club and having devotions with the rest of us is fine," continued Mom, "but it's important for you to learn to feed yourself spiritually, too."

    Marissa glanced at Tommy's messy face. "When I don't understand what I read, I guess it's kinda like I missed my mouth," she said with a grin.

    Mom laughed. "Kinda," she replied. "Then you can ask for help. But don't stop trying. Learn to get some spiritual food all by yourself."

    How About You?
    Are you learning to feed yourself spiritually? As you learn to read the Bible for yourself, you may not understand every word, but as you keep at it, you'll understand more and more. The Holy Spirit will teach you. He will also use people--often parents and pastors or teachers--to answer your questions when you need help. Take time to read God's Word every day, and ask for help when you need it.

    Today's Key Verse:
    As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.
    (1 Peter 2:2)

    Today's Key Thought:
    Read the Bible for yourself

    Devotion:


    Verse: Romans 5:12

     . . . sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin.


    What is sin?  Is it doing bad things?  Is it not doing good things?  Is it poor choices or words?  What is sin?  Time for a quiz on Bible People’s sins!

    Question 1:  Abraham sinned when he was living in Egypt, and even Pharoah knew about it.  What did Abraham do that was so bad?  (Genesis 12)

    Question 2:  Peter felt horrible when he realized that he had sinned and hurt Jesus.  What did Peter do?  (Luke 22)

    Question 4:  Who brought sin into our world in the first place?  Was it God?  (Genesis 3)

    How did you do?  There was a famine where Abraham lived so he moved his family down to Egypt, but then he got scared.  Sarah was so beautiful that Abraham thought the Pharaoh might want her for a princess, so Abraham lied and said that Sarah wasn’t his wife and let Pharaoh take her into the palace.  At this point, God protected Sarah by making Pharaoh sick until he gave Sarah back to Abraham.

    On the night Jesus was arrested, Peter followed to see what would happen.  Three times, people asked Peter if he was friends with Jesus.  Three times, Peter said, “No!  I don’t know Jesus!”  The last time he said, “No!”, Jesus heard Peter’s words.

    God didn’t make sin.  Adam and Eve were given one command:  eat of any tree in the beautiful garden except for one tree.  They were tempted to eat of that forbidden tree; when they did eat from it, sin, disease, death all entered God’s perfect world.

    What is sin?  It is turning away from God.  It’s not trusting God.  It’s putting ourselves in God’s place and running our own lives.  When we choose to trust ourselves and not God, we sin…..and the result is never good.  Just ask Abraham, Peter, or Eve!

    Discussion Guide:

    The Outbreak in this story represents the outbreak of sin in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve sinned (Genesis 3). Since then sin has tainted everything—our environment, our relationships, our thoughts about ourselves and others; our actions toward others. The list is very long, so long we see that it affects everything. Worst of all sin separates us from God. It seems so hopeless. But God wasn’t satisfied to leave his good creation to sin. God promises to bring his creation back to that perfection that God began with. The first verse that begins to reveal this promise is found in Genesis 3: 15. The enemy (Satan, represented by the serpent) will fight against God, but in the end God’s representative will crush him.
