    My wife, Janet, bought me a new Dreadnought D-35 guitar for my 65th birthday. Originally developed in the early 1900s, the Dreadnought style is larger than most guitars designed during that time, and it’s known for its bold and loud tone. It was named after the large World War I British battleship the HMS Dreadnought. The back of the D-35 is unique. Because of the shortage of wide pieces of high quality rosewood, the craftsmen innovatively fit three smaller pieces of wood together, which resulted in a richer tone.

  • Just Thinking

    Job 1:1-3, 6-11, 20-21; 2:1-6, 8-10; James 4:13-16

    All of us would agree—life is difficult. Without warning, heartbreaking moments and tragic events cut our legs out from under us and drop us on our faces. Caught by surprise, we wonder if our anguish is truly unbearable. It's bad enough when such pain comes as the result of our wrongdoing—when we suffer the awful consequences of our own disobedience. However, little compares to the pain we're called upon to endure when we don't deserve it.

    People can get lost in the big city; they can exist without serious relationships or serious responsibilities. And often mischief-makers gravitate into the cities. Much corruption originates from the city. That is still true today and it was true then.

    Zach took a bite of his meatloaf. "We learned about heaven in Sunday school today," he said, "but there's something I don't understand. I know heaven is supposed to be wonderful, but it doesn't sound so great to me. Won't it be boring, just walking around on a golden street, singing hymns?"

    "I'm sure we'll be doing more than that," Dad said with a smile.

    "Yeah, well . . . that's what Mr. Davis said, too," admitted Zach. "The Bible doesn't tell us a lot about it, though, does it?"

    "No," replied Dad, "but we do know that it's a wonderful, beautiful place. And the best part of heaven will be finally being with Jesus."

    "Right," agreed Mom. "Sometimes it's hard to understand how great that will be, but think about how glad you are to see Grandpa and Grandma when we visit them. Seeing Jesus will be even better."

    Zach shrugged. "I guess so." He ate the last bite of his meatloaf. "I wonder why God didn't tell us more about what heaven will be like."

    "For one thing, it would be impossible for our minds to understand all the good things He has planned for us," said Dad. He looked over at four-year-old Bobby. "Finish your carrots, Bobby," he said. "We're almost ready for dessert."

    "What is it?" Bobby asked as he took a forkful of carrots.

    Mom just smiled. "It's a surprise," she said, "but I promise you'll like it."

    "Can I have mine now, Mom?" asked Zach.

    Mom shook her head. "Let's wait till Bobby's ready," she said quietly. "It's his favorite. If he sees it, he'll get so excited that he won't want to finish his carrots."

    Soon they were all enjoying strawberry shortcake. "I just thought of another reason God didn't tell us exactly what heaven will be like," Zach announced with a grin. "If we knew, we'd probably get so excited we wouldn't be able to focus on what God wants us to do on earth now.

    Dad and Mom smiled. "Like Bobby wouldn't have been able to finish his carrots if he knew what dessert was coming," agreed Mom. "We just need to obey God and trust that His dessert will be just right!"

    How About You?
    Do you even wonder what heaven will be like? The Bible tells some things about it, but you won't really know what God has in store for you until you get there. Trust Him and believe that He knows best how to make you happy. In the meantime, keep busy doing God's will on earth and telling others about Jesus so they can go to heaven, too!

    In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

    Devotion:


    Verse: Luke 6:37

    If you do not judge others, then you will not be judged.


    Have you ever heard of the Faith Hall of Fame? Its members are listed and described in Hebrews 11. Here's a question for you about our heroes of Faith: True or False. Each person in the Faith Hall of Fame had a perfect reputation.

    Did you know the answer is false? Here are some of our great faith heroes:

    1. Abraham. Yes, he talked with God often. He seemed to be a wealthy man who always obeyed God. He also lied to a king that his wife was his sister and then let that king take Sarah to marry her. Only God's intervention saved Sarah from becoming an Egyptian princess.
    2. Gideon is a great hero of faith who drove out the mean, nasty Midianites from his country. But everyone who knew him also knew he was the youngest son of a little family from a little tribe in Israel. Everyone also knew that he was a scaredy cat who needed lots of signs from God before he would act.
    3. King David is listed in the Faith Hall of Fame. He was a man who was after God's own heart. Unfortunately, he neglected to teach his family-he had lots of wives and children-enough about God. His children grew up hating and hurting each other and their father. Everyone knew that David's own son even tried to kill him.
    4. Moses led God's people out of slavery in Egypt. But he also murdered an Egyptian. He tried to tell God to choose another person to save Israel. He wasn't allowed into the promised land because he disobeyed God in front of the Israelites.

    Who are our faith heroes? They are just ordinary people with lots of problems and faults. They mess up regularly. They also believe in God and try their best to obey him. Be very careful in judging the next person you meet. He or she just might be the next hero of faith in the making!

    Discussion Guide:

    How do you judge others? Sometimes we make up a whole extra set of rules for people to follow in order to be considered good Christians. These rules can define what clothes to wear, music to listen to, books to read, people to hang out with, and how to spend free time. When we create these rules for conformity without leaving room for the God-given individuality of each person, we can discourage those who are “different” from hearing and responding to the message of the gospel. Yes, there are biblical principles that guide our words and actions. But there is a lot of room for individual expression within those guidelines.

    We do not want to judge people because of outward appearance when the Bible tells us that God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). We do not want to withhold the love God commands us to extend to others (Matthew 22: 37-39) because they are different than we are. This is difficult for us because when we are with people like us we feel safe and comfortable. But maybe our discomfort will be the incentive for us to depend on God as we reach out to others, especially those who are different.
