It Hurts

Why do we exercise?  Why do we eat right?

For the benefits.  The benefits only come through the uncomfortable moments.

I hate that and so do you.

I don't like doing sit ups or walking more or riding a stationary bike for an hour.

I DO like being able to fit into my clothes and having more energy.

That makes me happy.

The weird part of life is that you have to do unhappy things to be happy.

I want to share this video with you.

It's inspirational.  It has Arnold the Terminator in it.

I think you'll get some important lessons out of it.

Here's some things that Jesus never said.

"Like me on Facebook and I'll send a blessing your way."

Nope, never said it.  (I looked.)

He didn't say this either...""I just got a great deal on car insurance!"

They did not have cars back then!  They had donkeys and camels!

Both of which stunk badly but were great modes of transportation!

I'm pretty sure insurance companies did not exist then either.

Here's the BIG one I want to focus on...

Jesus never said "You guys ask too many questions."

Jesus never once brushed off anyone who had an honest question.

They all walked away with a response.

It may not often have been the one they were looking for, (It often wasn't.) but it was an answer.

Jesus wasn't arrogant or narcissistic.

He was here on the earth to give His life for US, and He did just that.

Curiosity is built into us, if it wasn't, we would not have ever done things like go to the moon.

We would have never discovered electricity, sailed the oceans or created Caramilk Bars.

We ask questions, we desire knowledge, we want answers.

It's OK to ask questions.  It's OK to question why things happen.

There was only one time I saw in scripture where Jesus gave a non-answer.

The guys asked him about the restoration of the nation of Israel.

Acts 1:7 - It's not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by His own authority.


Can you give us a hint?

He did!  There are all kinds, but that's another topic.

Keep asking questions.  Trust God will give you the answers.
