~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
My friend, Harvey, sent me a whole bunch of T-shirt slogans. Some are sort of clever, like: Ham and Eggs - a day's work for a chicken but a life's commitment for a pig."
That concept gives me a question for you today. Is your relationship with Jesus Christ a lifetime commitment or just a contribution.? Are you giving Him your all or just enough to get by? In the vernacular, are you going "whole hog" or are you a bit "chicken" about your faith?
A half-hearted faith doesn't seem effective. A parallel would be a marriage with only a half-hearted commitment -- it's not a very pleasant arrangement. Both parties suffer.
If Christianity is worth following, it demands our whole-hearted support. That's when the joy comes. In Matt. 16:24 (NLT) we read, "Then Jesus said to His disciples, 'If any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow me.'" That statement is just as valid today as when He first spoke it. I often think of the chorus we used to sing - "There's joy in following Jesus every moment of the day." Sure is!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
As a rule,
Man's a fool.
When it's hot,
He wants it cool.
And when it's cool,
He wants it hot,
What is not.

Q: Why are Asia and Europe considered two continents even though they appear to be one?
A: The ancient Greeks thought the Eurasian landmass was divided in two by the line of water running from the Aegean Sea to the far shore of the Black Sea. By the time they found out otherwise, Europeans were not about to surrender their continental status.
