The Haircut

Too funny!

Morning Story and Dilbert

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his Father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.

His father said he’d make a deal with his son, “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, And get your hair cut. Then we’ll talk about the car.”

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the Offer, and they agreed on it.

Have You Seen It?

Think about all the “good” things you have ever received or given to someone else?

How did they look?  Were they big, expensive, colorful, bland, or forgettable?

What was the look on your face when you received the gift?  Were you excited, appreciative, or grateful?

What was the look on the face of the person to whom you gave a gift?  Was it gratitude that you saw, annoyance, or just pure delight?

When you think about all the things you have received or even purchased and you marvel at how wonderful they are–remember this–“You ain’t seen nothing, yet!”  What does that mean?  The Word tells us in Corinthians through Paul, that “eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither has it entered into man’s heart (not even imaginable) all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.”

So don’t get caught up with the things you have right now–no matter how wonderful they are–you still haven’t seen the best from God.  It’s coming!  If you don’t think you will see them–try working on that relationship with Him, show Him you love Him as much as you show love to others and then stand back and watch Him work on your behalf!  Look for it–with loving Him and His love for us–you may not have room enough to receive the overflow. Imagine the look on your face or even the face of others.  Have you seen it? Now, run and tell that!
