December 15-Reaping What One Sows 

Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 11:18b 

On this date in 2006, Buck O’Neil who passed away in October is awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously by President George W. Bush for his “excellence and determination both on and off the field.” Accepting the country’s highest civilian honor on behalf of the Negro League Baseball Legend is his 91 year old brother Warren. 

The writer of Proverbs reminds us all to be sure we are sowing right living into our lives. When we have righteous in our lives we will reap a sure reward. When we live our lives by God’s standards God’s way, we will indeed receive the greatest of all rewards. When we get to heaven having lived a life pleasing to God we will hear the words, “well done good and faithful servant”. For a Christian there can be no better reward!

1.      How do we sow righteousness in our lives?
2.      What is the evidence that we are living right lives?
3.      Why is it important to live a righteous life in our world today?

If we live our lives to serve God and by His standards great things will be accomplished for His Kingdom!

Years ago, when I was setting out to find my forutne I packed all my worldly possessions in my car and set out. Not far from my small hometown there was a fork in the road. One road led to Tulsa, OK and the other to Oklahoma City. Unable to decide which road to take, I stopped the car and flipped a quarter, saying Heads I turn right tails I turn left .I have often wondered how differently my life would have turned out had the quarter come up tails rather than heads. Yes, foolish, seemingly insignificant decisions make life-changing differences in our lives.

I think Cain is surprised that he s gotten this far, not because he lacked the ability or dedication...but because he didn t have the big money and name recognition. But these are wild and crazy days, and a man who appears to have strength, leadership, courage, and the ability to speak clearly WITHOUT a teleprompter is an appealing mix.@John the Econ- I like your dream! I d really like Herman Cain to get the VP spot and actually do something with it (hey, Dick Cheney sure beat the disappear and do nothing curse, right?), eventually giving him more solid footing for a run at the top spot.And getting back to the main thrust of today s cartoon/commentary, how great would it be to FINALLY have a racial healer in charge? Bill Clinton could have been that, but preferred the politics of hatred (remember his crusade to find white bigots who were burning black churches? Turns out that most of the churches were burned down by their own parishoners). And Obama was presented to us on a silver platter as being a bi-racial president who would bridge our differences. Little did we know it was a toll bridge - constantly in the up position to prevent meeting in the middle...and will a huge toll being collected anyway.Cain is black, he s good humored, he s very well spoken, he s pragmatic about education and jobs, and he s evangelical Christian. I think he could possibly be the right man to bring our nation together.@Emmentaler- Perhaps I m guilty of having greater allegiance to the dream I believe was Dr King s than his actual message. But if that s the case, I can t feel too badly about it. Racial equality, equal opportunity, equal education, equal responsibility, equal expectations, and judging a man by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. So whether that s King s dream or mine, it s why I m so offended by those on the Left every frikkin day...and never moreso than when they try to co-opt this dream for their own selfish and nationally-destructive aims.On a final note, it s now after 5 pm...and despite my desire to buy American, I m going to have some Canadian whiskey. And perhaps I ll then give my I have a dram, speech...
