Sand or Stone

The following was part of an email sent to me by my father, Gentlebe N. Dunlap II:

Two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

They kept on walking, until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE “.

Illustration:

Some of us will never forget our first day at our Military Basic Training Unit. My first day was in the US Army at Ft Dix, NJ in 1964. When we got off the bus at our Basic Training entrance station, we were stereotyped by our civilian attire. For example, if one had long hair, he was considered a hippie; if one wore a cowboy hat he may have been thought to be from Texas; if one was African American with long braids and thick gold chains, he may have been thought to be from the inner city; if one had on a three-piece suit, he may have been thought to be a professional man. Often nicknames were given to us upon our entrance and those nicknames remained with us throughout our training.  [NOTE: we were judged by what we looked like and what we wore.]  Continue reading Christian or Chameleon

Our Delay Does Not Nullify God’s Word – Part II

2 Kings 5:1-15 – Full Scripture Lesson

 

 The following is a lesson I created and shared with an addictions group. It really hit home for me and for many members of the group. I went into the lesson seeing God’s healing, but through the group so many more important factors were brought to light. I decided to redo the lesson as a verse by verse breakdown and include “lessons learned” from the scripture.

 

Part II – 2 Kings 5:11-15
