    There is a lot of talk these days about the Nebraska Football Team. There’s even lots of hope after the annual “spring scrimmage.”
    You know, when we watch a football game we see 22 players on the field – 11 on each side.

    One of most well-known Bible stories ever is Daniel in the Lion’s Den.

    Yes, it is tax time.  The old saying goes, “The only things inevitable are death and taxes.” Now if you thought I was going to give you some Christian justification for not paying your taxes-sorry. Paul is clear, “Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.” (Romans 13:7)  Jesus even joined in, “…render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:21)

    Words matter. Words have power. As much as we may want to discount this truth, it remains. No matter how often we forget, it’s still true that words matter. Just take minute and listen. Listen to how the people closest to you talk, hear the words and phrases they use. Now listen to how you talk. Did you catch it? Some of those same words and phrases that you heard from those around you pop out of your own mouth.

    The things mom used to say, things like “if you keep making that face it will stick,” or, “there are starving children in Africa, and you should be grateful for what has been set before you,” but the one thing we knew was a definite warning was “just stop it.” It sounds so easy for us thinking back on mom’s order, just do it! As we grew up, we learned that “just stopping it” was not so easy. When attempting to understand the culture in Fairbury regarding issues including truancy, poverty, or other social problems, there seems to be an underlying cause-apathy.

    In a Municipal Court in a small town in North Dakota, an older gentleman walked in, pled guilty to running a stop sign and colliding with a parked car, paid his fine, and left. It all seemed routine.

    I want you to let your imagination run free for a moment. I want you to use your mind’s imagination to picture yourself, your personality, who you are really, as a house. That’s right as a house. Any kind of house will do -- just so it’s yours.

    How do we know when we are encountering a lie? It happens when words and actions do not line up. If I, for example, claim to care about a particular need or situation, and then, do not live in such a way that reflects that care and concern, I am lying.  I have to admit I’m guilty of this often, regarding everything from losing my patience with my kids to reducing my carbon footprint.
