They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. Psalm 145:7
Last week, we prayed in response to a shooting at Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C. AS more information came out about the shooting, it was discovered that the shooter was an activist that had been volunteering at a local gay rights organization. The shooting received only passing reference by mainstream media outlets and the fact that a gay rights activist was the perpetrator has largely been overlooked. All acts of vigilantism are condemnable, but at times like this we ought to ask whether labeling FRC a “hate group” by the notoriously left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t contribute to the mess we’re in as a nation. In the days following the shooting, one commentator observed that to label FRC a “hate group” is the same thing as calling evangelical Christianity a “hate group” since FRC stands for evangelical values. LET US PRAY . . .

|MARRIAGE AND CHILDREN
You ask, Why? It is because the Lord is the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth. The man who hates and divorces his wife, says the Lord, the God of Israel, does violence to the one he should protect, says the Lord Almighty. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful. Malachi 2:14-16
President Herbert Hoover said, “Children are our most valuable natural resource.” In the midst of all the controversy and frustration regarding marriage, parenting and children, let us remember that God in His Word clearly tells us that He desires a husband and wife raising Godly offspring as a key purpose in marriage. All the empirical data point to and confirm what God has revealed regarding this in that children do best when raised by their biological parents or by an adoptive father and mother. May Christ’s Church seek to re-establish these Truths and God’s blessing regardless of the cost. LET US PRAY…
Heavenly Father, You are very clear in Your Word about marriage and Your desire to raise Godly children! May we, as Christ’s Church, stand firmly, boldly and graciously on Your Word of Truth and help others to see Your heart. May we once again receive Your blessing on our families and in Your Family, the Church, as we walk in faithful obedience in our marriages and in raising our children in accordance with Your Word. In Christ’s precious Name. Amen.

John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called ‘pullets,’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. He kept careful records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to each of his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so he could tell from a distance when a rooster was performing.
This made things much easier for John. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out the efficiency reports simply by listening for the bells.
John’s favorite rooster, Old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this particular morning John realized that he hadn’t heard Old Butch’s bell ring even once! When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, their bells a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
To John’s amazement, Old Butch was holding his bell in his beak so it couldn’t ring. He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job, then go off in search of another one. John was so proud of Old Butch, he entered him in the Saint Lawrence County Fair. Old Butch became an overnight sensation and a hit with the judges. Not only did they award Old Butch the “No Bell Piece Prize,” but they awarded him the “Pullet Surprise,” as well.
Clearly, Old Butch was a politician in the making! Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention?
