The Chronicles of Biscuit - Biscuit's Words of Wisdom

Biscuit's Words of Wisdom #1:
Lauren and I were playing a game called "Bananagrams". It's kind of like Scrabble, except you make words right in front of you using your own tiles. Lauren asked me if a certain three letters made a word, such as "S", "E", "R", or something like that. Biscuit piped up and said, "Sound it out!". He seems to think that if you can sound it out - it's a word. Sounds logical, doesn't it?

Biscuit's Words of Wisdom #2:
The other day Jacob was looking for a shirt and he couldn't find it. Sometimes Biscuit gets a lot of clothes out and when he puts them up, occassionally gets his brother's in with the mix. So, I asked Biscuit, "Do you know where Jacob's shirt is?". Biscuit answered, "Where he put it." Yep, that's probably right! Whatever is lost can sometimes be found right where we left it.

Biscuit's Words of Wisdom #3:
Last night we were eating around the table (yea, the "table"!) and were discussing an older member who had passed away. Biscuit said, "You mean Mrs. P?" His dad answered, "No. Mr. H. Mrs. P has already been buried." Biscuit said in one big long statement, question, and answer, "Oh, yes. I remember...Do you think she went to heaven or hell?....I'm thinking heaven.....We went to see her in the hospital". I'm telling you, the rest of us could hardly keep a straight face! The question he asked isn't funny, of course. That question is a serious question. It was just funny the way he was logically thinking out loud.

So, from Biscuit's Words of Wisdom, what can we learn today?

#1 - If something seems right, it may be right, but it doesn't necessarily make it right. What I "think" does not equal what God desires. The Bible is the ONLY source of what is right and true and good.

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17

#2 - If something is lost, we should look for it in the right place. The Bible teaches what to do if someone is spiritually lost. We should seek to find the lost.

Luke 15 (whole chapter) tells of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son.

#3 - Biscuit's question is something we should each ask about ourselves. If we were to die, would we go to Heaven or to Hell? We can be certain of where we will spend eternity if we follow the steps of salvation that are laid out in the Bible and continue to live faithfully for Him.

"Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things (the "things" are listed in the verses above), you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."2 Peter 1:10-11

Have a great weekend, everyone!
