Today I’m beginning a 10-part series of questions found in the Bible. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while – and since now’s just as good of time as any, I figured what better time to do it than the present!
I’m going to admit this right off the bat – I don’t intend for the content of my posts in this series to be completely in agreement with the verse’s context. I’m merely trying to make a point with each of these posts. So please, don’t crucify me on the basis of using part of a verse “out of context.” (thank.you.very.much.)
Also, these questions follow no particular order. With that being said, let’s get started.

I’ve heard the story before. There’s a little boy who had one penny. He ran into the corner store, dropped his penny on the counter, and asked the store owner what he could buy for a penny. The man pulled out a jar of candy and told the little boy that just one penny would buy a handful of candy. “A whole handful?” the little boy asked, and the man nodded in confirmation. The boy left his penny on the counter and darted back out the door. Puzzled, the man wondered where the boy had run off to. A few minutes later the little boy came walking back through the door with his dad following behind him. “A whole handful, right? My penny will buy a whole handful of candy…?” the boy asked again. “That’s right… a whole handful,” the man said. The little boy smiled and looked at store owner as his father reached into the jar of candy, then explained: “Daddy’s got bigger handfuls than me!”
I took a trip to the altar again tonight and cried like a baby… again. I’m so thankful for God’s grace and His mercy in my life. I’m burdened. I’m convicted. I’m saved. I’m thankful. Read the rest of this entry
