Applying Scripture to Everyday Needs
“Christ said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” Luke 22:36

We do have trash pandas at the White Wolf Mine but they are chased off by the bobcats – mostly. I ran onto this Youtube video and I’m asking you whether this guy is taking charity for the bandits too far?
The Sermonette today comes from Beauty and the Beast
The Disney film is popular with my grandchildren. When I watch it with them, some basic truths are explained through the actions of the characters.
The story of Beauty and Beast is a very human story about a man rediscovering his humanity. Belle, the heroine of the story, demonstrates her moral character by maintaining her humanity even when everyone around her has lost theirs. The story teaches that the part of us that makes us human are things that cannot be controlled or forced, they must be freely given. Only when we freely demonstrate self-sacrifice and love can we find our humanity and separate ourselves from the beastly nature found inside each of us.
It’s an interesting concept – with universal application.
