In December each year, a neighborhood of 13 families near where we live sets up a dazzling display of 300,000 Christmas lights. People drive for miles and wait in line for hours to see the flashing, colorful lights and hear the music that is programmed to go with it. The sound-and-light display is so elaborate that it requires a network of 64 computers to keep everything synchronized.

Isaiah 40:27-31; Matthew 6:24-34; Luke 10:38-42; Philippians 4:4-7
No one will ever know how much energy the human race has wasted through worry. In our breakneck-paced culture, worry has reached emotional epidemic levels. We are the most anxious among all of God's created beings. We have numerous phobias. Our diseases are often emotionally induced. We can trace many of our battles with common problems, such as insomnia, obesity, alcohol and drug addition, pessimism, and headaches to deep-seated unrest in our souls. What nervous, tense creatures we are! Surely God did not design our bodies to endure such self-imposed stress.

7:30am & 7:30pmPeter picked up a bowl of warm, buttery popcorn and scowled at his sister. "Get out of my chair, Mandy!" he ordered.
"You always get to sit by the window," complained Mandy. "I want to sit here for a change."
"It's my spot," Peter insisted, but Mandy just stuck out her tongue. "Dad! Make Mandy get out of my chair!" whined Peter as he tugged at his sister's arm.
"The chairs don't have names on them," said Dad. "Just sit down over there, Peter, so we can all enjoy our snack." Still grumbling, Peter obeyed.
Soon they were crunching their popcorn and sipping glasses of Mom's freshly squeezed lemonade. "I seem to recall that you were fighting over chairs last night, too," said Dad when he noticed that Peter continued to glare at his sister. "But last night, I believe Peter was sitting in the chair Mandy considered hers, right?" Mandy just shrugged, and Peter nodded sheepishly.
Mom smiled. "I think it's time you kids learn to take a lemon and make lemonade," she declared.
Peter frowned. "You mean you don't want to make it for us anymore?" he asked.
Dad laughed. "Mom's using the old saying, 'If life hands you lemons, make lemonade,'" he said. Dad held up his glass. "This good lemonade we're enjoying started out as sour lemons, but did Mom sit around moaning about how sour they were?"
"No, she squeezed them and added sugar and made something good out of them," Peter replied.
"And that's what we should do in life. Instead of complaining about what happens, we should learn--with God's help--to make the best of every situation," said Dad. "The Apostle Paul said he learned to be content in 'whatever state'--or situation--he was in. We should learn to do that, too."
"I guess Mandy and I should learn to be content in whatever chair we're in," suggested Peter with a grin. "Okay. I really don't mind sitting over here by the register once in a while. It's nice and warm."
"I like it there, too," agreed Mandy, "but it's nice to sit here by the window sometimes. It really doesn't matter that much, does it, Peter?"
"Good." Mom smiled. "Now, how about some more lemonade?"
How About You?
Have you learned to make lemonade in life--with God's help, making the best of any situation? Or do you complain when things don't go your way and you don't get what you want? The next time things don't turn out the way you hoped they would, please God by looking for--and finding--something good in what's happening. Get rid of your sour attitude and enjoy the lemonade!
Today's Key Verse:
I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.
Today's Key Thought:
Look for good in every situation

Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
The school play is coming up and Liz is sure that he will not only have the lead role, but also be asked to direct. That doesn't happen, but Miss Wattle does give him the role of Old Ben which Liz still uses to be a "star" with sunglasses, a chinchilla beret, silk scarf, and bodyguard. This causes Chamy and Miss Wattle to "fire" Liz and replace him with Morrie. Liz finally realizes that he once again has fallen to pride.
Have you ever heard of King Joash? King Uzziah? King Hezekiah? What do these kings have in common?
They were all kings of Judah before Jesus was born. They all had unusual names. They all began their kingships in the same way: by doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord. What a great way to begin an important job!
- Joash was only seven years old when he became king. The temple of God had been vandalized and neglected, so King Joash collected money and restored the temple.
- King Uzziah was 16 when he became king. He asked the priest what God wanted him to do and then went out and did it.
- King Hezekiah repaired the temple. He led his nation in bringing sacrifices to the temple, celebrating Passover again, and worshiping God.
These three kings did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. How cool! They had one more thing in common. They all got the same disease: PRIDE!
After the priest who had guided him died, King Joash turned his back on God. He worshipped idols and killed anyone who reminded him to worship only God. King Uzziah got so proud, he thought he could go into the temple and burn incense (this was only for the priests to do). He got very angry when the priests told him he couldn't do that. God punished him with leprosy for the rest of his life. Hezekiah got very proud and thought he didn't need God. The Bible says "God's anger came upon him and Judah. Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem." (2 Chronicles 32: 25-26)
Pride is sneaky. It creeps up on you and makes you think you don't need God. It gives you the feeling that you can handle things without God-better than God. God hates the sin of pride because it turns our hearts away from him and from loving others. Be on the watch for pride. If you do come down with it, the best thing to do is give it right to God.
What does it mean to be proud? Is it feeling good about a job well done? Is it self-respect? Or self-esteem? I once received a congratulations card from a friend saying that she was "proud" of me, and in parentheses she wrote "the good kind." What she wrote highlighted what we know about pride-there is a good kind and a bad kind.
Self-esteem or self-respect gone awry can become the bad kind of pride. But it seems that the pride that the Bible warns us about can be subtler than this. It is an almost sub-conscious sense of entitlement that says, "Because I am who I am, or I have what I have, I am better than you and I deserve more than you."
Because this is so subtle, parents need take care that they are not creating an environment where their children will absorb attitudes toward themselves and others that are really pride in disguise. This can't be done without prayer and the help of the Holy Spirit. Pray that God will give you a teachable spirit that is open to recognize, confess, and repent under the guidance of the Spirit so that the only pride that exists in your home is rooted in the cross of Christ (Galatians 6:14).
