Thank you for the HUGE turnout last night as school is mostly back in session! We feasted on cheese filled tortellini and spinach stuffed ravioli. Our Beach Ball Baseball had to be nixed because of all the unexpected rain, so we moved downstairs and rained some long distance shots with Bible Bingo Basketball!
The "Far Side" team was behind in total shots made when Michaela stopped the game by winning Bingo. The Bingo winner, however, gets three final shots at the basket. Her team was down one shot, so she had to make one shot at least out of three to tie the other team. What did she do? She hit 2 out of 3 shots to bring her team to a come-back victory! Michaela is a proven winner, as she not only won bingo, but she also won the highest total shots made, AND won the whole game for her team. Great job, Michaela!!!
Afterwards we studied how the Bible is a proven winner in this world. It has been partially translated into more languages, been preserved longer than any other body of writings in history, and has sold over 5 billion copies - far more than any other book ever in existence. It has been referenced by everyone in history - artists, poets, songwriters, movie producers, etc. No other book has made as dramatic an impact on this globe as the Bible.
Psalm 119:105 says, "Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." This book says it is a bright light shining a path out of this dark world. Hebrews 4:12 says the words in the Bible are alive and powerful! 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 says it is able to thoroughly equip us in righteousness.
The Bible is a proven winner in this world. Why not give it a chance every day to be a proven winner in our lives personally?
