In the Middle

“And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.” Genesis 5:31 KJV
Imagine the shock on John’s face when he saw the dead man’s face was none other than that of his own father. The Bible doesn’t say a lot about Lamech. Those were the good old days before safety people ruined the fun for all us kids.

Donald Trump – His Brother Freddy

“And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground..” John 8:8 KJV
He was the family success story where Freddy was the family failure. A few moments later he lifts up his head and notices they are all gone. Translation: changing the words, just to make you feel better about it, is sometimes nothing more than legalism.

“And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.” Exodus 19:16 KJV
What was the gift for the President? We find that His smoke doesn’t fill our lungs with harmful chemicals but fills our hearts with joy and confidence. He made one of us kids sit in front of the hole so the salesman wouldn’t devalue the car because of the hole.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14 KJV

James Garfield – Growing Up Poor

“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” II Thessalonians 3:10 KJV

Why did her brother-in-law take everything from her and why in the world did her church abandon her when she found love outside her faith? Why did some other king have to conquer his land and take away his dream? Why did I have to become a plumber?
