Thought for the Week 

This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me (Mark 7:6). 

A few years ago, on History Channel’s reality show called Pawn Stars, a man brought a violin into a Las Vegas pawn shop and asked for an appraisal. He had recently purchased a piece of property that included a house and a barn. He was inspecting the barn when he found an old violin carefully packed away in an old chest. He dusted off the violin and found the word “Stradivarius” clearly inscribed on the near perfect instrument. He was hoping his newly discovered “Stradivarius” was worth millions of dollars.

It wasn’t. After examining the violin, the pawn store owners told the man it wasn’t a genuine Stradivarius. Instead, it was a cheap imitation produced in the early part of the 1900s, worth around five or six hundred dollars. The man’s disappointment was written all over his face when the appraiser told him, “Just because something has a label doesn't mean it's real.” (Pawn Stars, History Channel, 2-7-07

Are you for real? Or are you just wearing a label which says “Christian?”

Somebody once said, “Hypocrisy is like a pin: pointed in one direction but headed in another.” You can’t point people in one direction, then head in another and expect to lead them. It just doesn’t work!

    1. Men of Faith meeting 6:45 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. every Tuesday morning, in the lobby at Faith Bible Church. "As iron sharpens iron", men are invited to sharpen one another in the middle of each week before work during a time of mutual encouragement, Bible study, and prayer (coffee provided). They'll also participate in work projects to be announced throughout the year. Currently, we're discussing a new video series from Authentic Manhood, called A Man and His Marriage. Find encouragement in the middle of your week and be done in plenty of time to get to work. From the Authentic Manhood DVD Cover: There are many important relationships in a man's life, and none deserve more care, focus, and investment than his relationship with his wife. A Man's marriage is meant to be and can be an incredible source of energy, joy, and intimacy. Whether your marriage feels hopeless and numb or is thriving and exciting, this volume of 33 The Series is for you because it looks at what God says about the whole thing. It lays out an inspiring picture of God's vision for marriage that will change everything if you're “stuck” and will encourage you if you're already thriving. View the series trailer HERE!
