The majestic African cheetah is known for reaching speeds of 112 kph (70 mph) in short bursts, but it doesn’t do so well over distances. A BBC news item reports that four members of a northeast Kenyan village actually outran two cheetahs in a 4-mile footrace.

1 Corinthians 9:16-24

Passion. Just reading that word can spark a fire within us, but the idea isn't easy to define. According to the dictionary, passion has four synonyms: “fervour, ardour, enthusiasm, zeal”; and it has as one of its meanings “intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction.”

(Jewish) Imagine growing up in a family where anger, wrath and atheism were the daily diet of life. That combined with constantly moving from one apartment to another meant Betty Kazbek's childhood was anything but stable and loving. In her quest for something better, Betty retreated to fantasy and fairy tales. The search for meaning in life and personal peace continued well into middle age until Betty tuned to the Prince of Peace who gave her a new life on earth and for eternity. Hear the true-life story of Betty Kazbek on Unshackled.

That's easy... all you got to do is pick up the alcohol and start drinking... and eventually you'll become an alcoholic... because you allow that to take over and consume your life. Anybody can be a drug addict. Anybody can be a prostitute or a drug dealer or this or that. That's all the easy parts. The hard part is not doing it."

"Oh no! It looks like rain!" Reid exclaimed, anxiously looking up at the sky as the family gathered on the porch of their vacation cottage.

"It sure does," Dad agreed. "I think we'd better postpone our picnic on the beach until later in the week."

"But I'm all ready," Reid complained unhappily. "I've got my gear all together!"

As he spoke, raindrops began to fall, and his eyebrows drew together in a frown.

Soon rain was pouring down, and Reid groaned in frustration. "My whole day is ruined," he grumbled. "Besides, I told Jason to meet us at the beach."

"He won't be there in this rain," said Reid's sister, Becca. She held up a finger.

"Sh-h-h . . . listen." A clear, pure song came from a treetop. A bird was singing

in the rain.

"I don't care about a dumb bird singing. The day is ruined," Reid shot back.

"What good is a vacation if you can't do anything?"

"Why don't you get out one of your games, Reid? We may as well have some fun

in spite of the rain," said Dad.

"Fun? Yeah, right!" fumed Reid, but he grudgingly went to get a game. Soon he, Becca, Dad, and Mom were busy playing and laughing.

Suddenly, Dad looked up at the clock. "Can you believe it's nearly dinner time? Why don't we roast hot dogs in the fireplace?" he suggested.

"We can have a picnic lunch right here," said Mom. "Let's get the fire going and spread a blanket on the floor."

As they ate, Becca grinned. "This is fun, isn't it, Reid?" she asked.

"It's great!" he agreed. He pushed a gooey, toasted marshmallow off his stick onto a graham cracker. "The whole day was so much fun that I forgot about the rain. I've been thinking--that bird had the right idea after all. Sorry I got so upset earlier."

Dad put an arm around Reid. "It's okay," said Dad. "When you think of this day, remember that grumbling didn't stop the rain, and we all had as much fun as if we'd gone on a beach picnic. That bird was a good example for all of us. There's always cause to sing--even when it rains."

How About You?
Do you sing in the rain? How about when it rains in your life--when things don't go your way? We all have times of disappointment and sadness, but don't lose sight of all the blessings God has put in your life. God is always in control--trust Him, even when things go wrong, and you'll always find reasons to sing.

Today's Key Verse:
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad.
(Psalm 126:3)

Today's Key Thought:
Find reasons to sing

Episode Summary:

Who is your hero? Liz decides he’s going to become a hero, but he just can’t figure out how. Join Liz on his quest to become a true hero on this week’s Kids Corner.

Listen to this week's episode


Verse: Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know that plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

What makes someone a true super hero? It's time for a Bible super hero quiz!

Question 1: Which hero lost all his power from a hair cut but still killed 3000 Philistines? (Judges 16: 25-30)

Question 2: Which hero robbed another man of his wife but defeated Israel's enemies? (II Sam. 8:1, 11:26-27)

Question 3: Which hero kept her true identity a secret but saved her people from being murdered? (Es. 2:20, 4:13-14)

Question 4: Which hero pretended he didn't know Jesus but was a great leader of the early Christian church? (Mark 14:72, Acts 2: 14)

How did you do? Samson let Delilah cut his hair, something God had told him never to do. But when Samson asked God for help, God gave him enough strength to kill an entire temple full of Philistines. David sent a man to be killed in war so that David could marry the man's wife. But when David asked for forgiveness, God gave it to him and gave him many war victories.

Esther did not tell her husband (the king) that she was a Jew until she had to beg him not to kill all the Jews. Before Esther went to the king, she asked God for help. God delivered Esther and all the Jews in her country. On the night Jesus was condemned to be crucified, Peter denied being his friend three different times. Afterwards, Peter cried and asked for forgiveness. Peter spent the rest of his life talking to everyone about Jesus.

What do all these heroes have in common (other than being in the Bible)? None of them led perfect lives, but they were all chosen by God to do his work. You do not have to be perfect to be chosen by God to be one of his heroes. God looks for a person willing to listen and to obey. That's it. He'll do the rest to turn you into a super hero!

Discussion Guide:

Do kids want to be heroes? I think so. They imagine hitting a game winning home run, or setting straight the schoolyard bully. But being a hero is usually the result of the "coincidence" of being in the right place at the right time and doing the right thing. It cannot be manufactured as Liz tries to do in this episode. That's why it's important to trust in God's plan for your life and in God's timing.

This is the first program in a six-part series about Liz and his desire to be a hero. In this series we will see Liz learn what makes a true hero and how it's different from what he sees on the superheroes television programs. In this episode, Grandpa tries to teach Liz two important truths: 1) that God has a plan for his life and 2) it takes time to find out what that plan is.
