Someone handed me a story from an article in the Tennessee magazine and I thought it was good and so I am sharing it with you. “An old Cherokee Indian was teaching his grandson about like. “A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One wolf is evil – he is anger, envy, greed, pride, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, arrogance, superiority and ego. The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside every other person too.” His grandson thought about it for a minute and asked, “Which wolf will win?” The old Indian answered, “The one you feed!”
Selecting a new minister is not an easy task. Personally I’ve never witnessed a better job than the elders here have just completed. There has been a lot of prayer asking for the Lord’s help and guidance and the result is, I am convinced, that God has answered our prayers. I am pleased that Lance Bennett will be coming March 25. When he comes, he will be eager to go to work and build up the Fairlane church. We all should prepare ourselves love him and his family, help him in his service, encourage him in his work and accept him as he is. Every time someone different comes along, he will do some things differently. Different isn’t bad, it is just different and sometimes it is better.
There are some questions for which there are no easy answers: Who closes the bus door after the bus driver gets off? Why are pizza boxes square when pizzas are round? Why is there no grade E, when there are A, B, C, D and F? What do you call a female daddy-long-legs? Why is it called a “drive-through” if you have to stop? Today we will consider another question for which there is no answer.
