Everyone deals with anger – we all deal with it differently, but everyone deals with anger.  I remember reading a story about professional baseball players Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin.  They were going hunting on a friend of Mantle’s land and when they got there Mantle went in to tell his friend they were there.  The friend asked Mantle to do a favor for him.  He had an old mule that needed to be put down, but he was too emotionally attached to do it and asked Mantle if he would do it before hunting.  Mickey Mantle decided to play a trick on Billy Martin and so he came out of the house acting very angry.  He told Martin that his friend had refused to let them hunt and that he was so mad he was going to go shoot one of his mules.  Martin begged him not to do it but Mantle, playing it to the hilt, just kept moving, walked into the barn and shot the mule.  Laughing to himself, suddenly he heard two other shots! He walked out and Martin came running around the barn yelling, “We’ll show that son of a gun!  I just killed two of his cows!”


Thankful for You

This morning I am thankful for you – yes, you.  I sat down with a good friend today who is not part of our church, who has never attended any of our services, who is probably the polar opposite of me on the political spectrum in many areas and yet when I saw this friend the first thing they did was hug me tightly and tell me how much they love me.  We sat down for almost two hours and most of that time I got to talk to this friend about the incredible God we serve and about many, many, many of you!  So thank you; thank you very, very much.  And I want you to know why today I am so especially grateful; it is something that Sue reminded me about and I wanted to share it this way.


Cooperation with God

We have been on a journey in Galatians 5 looking at, digging into, seeking to know more about the Fruit of the Spirit.  Paul gives us a strong call to “Live by the Spirit!”  He isn’t making a take-it-or-leave-it suggestion, but he is challenging us that this is the best way the only way for a follower of Christ to live.  While most of us want to be better, to do better, Paul is telling us that the decisions that we make are our choices; that the power to live by the Spirit is not dependent upon us, but the choice to live by the Spirit is ours to make.  Or we can choose otherwise.  A few weeks ago I referenced a book by Philip Yancy, Prayer – Does It Make any Difference? and I would like to do so again in light of this journey into Galatians 5.
