A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an
old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.

The genie said "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp, blah blah
blah. This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little
sick of these wishes so you can forget about three. You only get
one wish!"

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always
wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly, and I get very
seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over
there to visit?"

The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible. Think of the
logistics of that! How would the supports ever reach the bottom of
the Pacific? Think of how much much steel!! No....
think of another wish."

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally,
he said, "I've been married and divorced four times. My wives
always said that I don't care and that I'm insensitive. So, I
wish that I could understand women....know how they feel inside
and what they're thinking when they give me the silent
treatment....know why they're crying, know what they really want
when they say 'nothing'....know how to make them truly happy...."

The genie said, "You want that bridge with two lanes or four?"

Carnival of Mirrors
Betsy Childs

It has been years since I've been to a fair, but I have fond memories of
the allurement known as the house of mirrors. In contrast to more
sophisticated and elaborate attractions, a house of mirrors works on the
simple assumption that to be surrounded by mirrors is a disorienting
experience. If you walk through a house of mirrors with companions,
you'll find it difficult to tell which images are reflections and which
are actual people. To make matters more complicated, the designers
exploit the distortive powers of curved glass. One mirror will make you
appear short and squat, while another gives a long, lean reflection.

Sadly, the house of mirrors is all too similar to the disorienting
experience of real life. We constantly seek self-understanding by
measuring ourselves against other people, but this will provide us with as
many different and conflicting reflections as a house of mirrors.(1) If I
compare myself to one person, I may find that I fall short in many
categories, only to realize that I fall short in an equal number of
different categories when I compare myself to someone else. Measuring
myself against someone I perceive as flawed may make me feel good about
myself, but the feeling lasts only until a superior person comes along to
turn my self-image upside down.

Women are especially prone to make physical comparisons; I came upon an
article online that counseled women not to play the comparison game. Yet
the sidebar ad that accompanied the article (hosted by the site of a
well-known women's magazine) flashed pictures of beautiful women along
with products designed to help the reader look like them. The dissonance
would have been ironic if it weren't so common.

The comparison trap extends to areas beyond physical categories. Your
sense of your own intelligence, success, happiness, and even godliness has
a lot to do with the people you compare yourself to. While it would be
nice to smash all of the mirrors so that we wouldn't be always confronted
with distorted images of ourselves, this is not an option. We live in a
world of mirrors, and we cannot run from them.

Mirrors exist because we can't see ourselves; we need them. But the
problem with the comparison game is that it doesn't provide a true
reflection of who we really are. God's Word is the only mirror that
accurately reflects our true identity.

The apostle James wrote, "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive
yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not
do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after
looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like"
(James 1:22-24). It is possible that this man fails to remember what his
own face looks like not because he is forgetful, but because he is
bombarded with images that are not accurate reflections. When I begin
comparing myself to others, I quickly forget my true identity, the
identity which God has made plain in his Word.

Though I may tell myself that I should be as attractive as the women I see
in magazines or as successful as the people who graduated with me from
school, God's Word tells me that, by the grace of God, I am what I am (1
Corinthians 15:10). It tells me I am a new creation, God's work of art,
the salt of the earth and the light of the world (2 Cor. 5:17, Ephesians
2:10, Matthew 5:13-14). For me, reading God's Word once or twice a day
isn't enough to keep sight of these truths. I have found that I have to
memorize it so that it is with me throughout the day as I am assaulted by
distorted images in the glass of the world. When I'm tempted to compare
myself to others, I cannot do better than call to mind the true reflection
that is presented in the mirror of God's Word.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
