WHOSE HANDS ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR? The blog by Jeff Carnie

              WHOSE HANDS ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?

“A Thanksgiving Day editorial in the newspaper told of a school teacher who asked her first graders to draw a picture of something they were thankful for. She thought of how little these children from poor neighborhoods actually had to be thankful for. But she knew that most of them would draw pictures of turkeys on tables with food. The teacher was taken aback with the picture Douglas handed in… a simple childishly drawn hand.

“But whose hand? This class was captivated by the abstract image. ‘I think it must be the hand of God that brings us food,’ said one child. ‘A farmer,’ said another, ‘because he grows the turkeys.’ Finally when the others were back at work the teacher bent over Douglas’s desk and asked whose hand it was. ‘It’s your hand, Teacher,’ he mumbled.

“She recalled that frequently at recess she had taken Douglas, a scrubby forlorn child, by the hand. She often did that with the children. But it meant so much to Douglas. ‘Perhaps this is everyone’s Thanksgiving, not for the material things given to us, but for the chance, in whatever small way, to give to others,’ she thought”

THE LION AND THE DOG: The blog by Jeff Carnie También en español véase más adelante

D.L. Moody one time saw a man beat his dog at a zoo one time because he was mad at him. He had made a bet and boasted about him being so obedient and when he tried to get the dog to so something he wanted, it wouldn’t do it and he lost his bet. He got so mad at that dog and just beat him and beat him and beat him mercilessly.

Finally, after he was wounded and bleeding and whimpering, he threw him in the lion’s cage so that the lion would eat him. And that poor whimpering, beaten, pitiful dog, standing shaking on his legs was in the presence of that great lion. And that lion came over to that dog and sniffed him and then he begin to lick that little dog and the dog laid down and the lion laid down there just keeping him warm and licking his wounds. And the man, after a little while felt sorry for the dog and told the man to let him have his dog back. And the person in charge of the lion cage who had seen him beat that dog said, “Fine, you can have your dog back. But you’re going to have to go in there and get him yourself!”

And that’s the way it is with me and you – we were…
–beaten
–bruised
–battered

By sins and sin, and now the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Jesus, has taken us in and has healed our wounds and now protects us from the enemy that once enslaved us!

EL LEÓN Y EL PERRO

D.L. Moody una vez vio a un hombre golpear a su perro en un parque zoológico una vez porque estaba enojado con él. Había hecho una apuesta y se jactaba de él que es tan obediente y cuando trató de conseguir que el perro quería algo así, no lo haría y él perdió su apuesta. Se puso tan enojado con ese perro y sólo lo golpearon, lo golpearon y lo golpearon sin piedad.

Por último, después de haber sido herido y sangrando y gimiendo, le tiró en la jaula de los leones para que el león se lo comería. Y ese lloriqueo pobres, perro apaleado, lamentable, de pie temblando en sus piernas estaba en la presencia de ese gran león. Y el león se acercó al perro y lo olió él y entonces él comenzó a lamer ese perrito y del perro previsto y el león establecido allí sólo lo mantiene caliente y lamer sus heridas. Y el hombre, después de un rato sintió pena por el perro y le dijo al hombre que le permitiera tener su perro. Y la persona a cargo de la jaula del león que lo había visto vencer a ese perro dijo: “Está bien, puede hacer que su perro de nuevo. Pero vas a tener que ir allí y conseguir lo mismo!”

Y esa es la forma en que está conmigo y que – estábamos …
– golpeados
– magullada
– maltratada

Por los pecados y el pecado, y ahora el León de la Tribu de Judá, Jesús, nos ha acogido y ha curado nuestras heridas y ahora nos protege del enemigo una vez que nos han esclavizado!

(De un sermón de Ricky Nelms, el poder de ser, 07/22/2010)
