People are “game” oriented. Some of the games they play are for fun and some are quite serious. Even those who claim to be Christians often are caught up in the games. Some of the favorites are:

1.   Crossword Puzzle.” When one always wants to fuss and wrangle and is grouchy and irritable it may be said that he is playing the crossword puzzle game. It is a puzzle as to what it will take to pacify him. His cross words engender strife, which is unprofitable and vain (Titus 3:9-11).  This person is often described as having been born in the objective case and the kickative mood. A Christian should endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:1-3).

2.   Guessing Game.” Some folks’ interest in worshipping God can become quite sporadic. They show up just often enough to keep the elders guessing as to what their plans are. “Have they quit or not?” A gigantic responsibility to “tend the flock” is given to the elders (I Peter 5:2; Acts 20:28).  It can be very difficult when there is little cooperation.

Never heard of Mike Grady? Well, unless you’re maybe a collector of otherwise useless information or a really fanatical kind of Major League Baseball fan, there's really no good reason that you would've. Mike Grady was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues of professional baseball on April 24, 1894, with the Philadelphia Phillies. He was one of those kind of players who would be traded to several teams before finally playing his last game on September 19, 1906 for the St. Louis Cardinals. Here’s one reason why he made the rounds and won’t be considered a Hall of Fame candidate.

He has the dubious distinction of being maybe the only player to commit four errors on one play. That’s right. Not one career; not one season; not one game — one play!

It seems Grady could not field any position well. Once, playing third base for the 1899 NY Giants, he bobbled a ground ball (Error #1), overthrew first base (Error #2), and when the batter advanced all the way to third base, dropped the throw from the first baseman (Error #3). As the runner headed home, Grady launched the ball over the catcher’s head (Error #4), allowing the runner to score. For Mike Grady, those errors added up to one of “those days”!

How about you? Ever had one of “those days”?  Read Entire Article

The story of Daniel in the lion’s den is often thought of as a lesson for young people. It is usually grouped in a set of children’s books alongside Jonah and the Big Fish or David and Goliath. That’s because we picture Daniel as the same young man who distinguished himself in the first chapter with his fellow “youths” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.


But by the time you get to Daniel 6,over sixty years have passed. Babylon was no longer the ruling power. A new king was on the throne. And Daniel was probably past eighty years old.


All of us—young and old, men and women alike—live in the lion’s den. Our world is shrouded in darkness with dangers seemingly around every corner. Our great adversary, the devil, “prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour(1 Peter 5:8) We are in this lair together.


What do we need, like Daniel, to survive in the lion’s den?
