Thursday's Riddles!



1) Come follow me, though I've no legs
I'll lead you through the trees.
Come follow me, though I've no voice
to call you on the breeze.
These woods are wild as can be,
I know them well,
come follow me, what am I?



2) Twice eight are ten of us, and ten but three.

Three of us are five. What can we be?
If this is not enough, I will tell you more.
Twelve of us are six, and nine but four.



3) Double my number, I'm less than a score, 

half of my number is less than four. Add one 
to my double when bakers are near, days of 
the week are still greater, I fear. What am I?



4) What word, phrase or expression is represented below?

0

----------
M.D.
Ph.D.



5) I alone am an intricate game

I and a labyrinth are one and the same
Add a letter and then I become
Astonished, amused, and perplexed to some
What am I?



6) My name is five letters long,
I bring pain and suffering
but also happiness and peace.
I can bring heaven or hell
What am I?

 


7) My name states I'm a singular male,
I can have a number, a head, but no tail.
I've also great strength and I can be tough,
But I'll smooth things out when they are rough.
Although I go back to an age now gone,
I'm around today for everyone.
What am I?

"Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything
that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace,
and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure
hearts" (2 Timothy 2:22 NLT).

On Thursday, June 28, David Satcher issued "The (U.S.) Surgeon
General's Call to Action to Promote Sexual Health and Responsible
Behavior."

The one thing that report doesn't talk about is...

FACING SEXUAL TEMPTATION
by Luis Palau

Everyone--from presidents to preachers--is subject to sexual
temptation.

But the stain of sexual sin goes deeper than the individual.
More dishonor has come to the name of Jesus Christ by sexual sin
than any almost any other sin.

You will be tempted. C.S. Lewis, in The Screwtape Letters, said,
"No man knows how bad he is until he has tried to be good. There is
a silly idea that good people don't know what temptation means."

We must learn from the Lord to enjoy full mastery over sex, His
marvelous gift. "For God did not give us the spirit of timidity,"
Paul reminds us, "but the spirit of power and love and self-control."

Proverbs 4:23 exhorts, "Above all else, guard your heart, for out
of it flow the springs of life." How can we do that?

Monitor your fantasizing and daydreaming when your mind is idle.
Refuse pornography, whether written or in movies or videos.

You can talk yourself into sexual sin. It happened to a friend
of mine. He had won thousands to Jesus Christ during 25 years.
Suddenly he left his wife and became hard and rebellious, even
pretending to return to evangelism. I found out that for years he
had secretly watched pornographic films, yet preached heavily
against immorality. Eventually, like a serpent, it bit him. It
has happened to better people than you and me.

Firmly implant in your soul God's principles established for
our protection. Believe them, accept them, reaffirm them. Study
Malachi 2:13-16 and 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8, and make Joseph in
Genesis 39 a model. He faced, resisted, and triumphantly ran from
temptation. But be ready! As my mentor, Ray Stedman, said, "Woe
to the man who has to learn principles at a time of crisis!"

The Word of God, as our meat and drink, keeps the inner man
and woman strong and sensitive on a continuing basis. "Your Word
I have hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you"
(Psalm 119:11).

Resisting temptation by quoting Scripture is still a mighty tool.

One preacher I know allowed himself to become enchanted by
an attractive, sensuous convert who had made advances shortly
before he led her to Christ. He resisted and she converted.

Three years later, he saw her again. He drew close to offer
an "innocent" kiss -- nothing more, he tells us -- when the young
woman started quoting, "No temptation has overtaken you that is not
common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted
beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the
way of escape, that you may be able to endure it" (1 Corinthians
10:13). He left in a hurry!

God will remove His hand from your service to Him if you allow
lust to lead you to actual sexual immorality. Samson lost his power.
"He did not know that the Lord had left him" (Judges 16:20). So
many friends started out well -- winsome, friendly, authoritative.
Where are they now? I can think of half a dozen on the sidelines
because of money, sex, or pride. Useless, lonely, fruitless, bitter.

Beware: Failure does not occur suddenly, overnight, in one blast
of a careless moment or the explosion of uncontrolled passion.

Dr. George Sweeting of Moody Bible Institute said, "Collapse in
Christian life is rarely a blowout -- it's usually a slow leak."
When a man takes that fatal step, it has been gestating in his soul
for months, perhaps years. Toying, daydreaming. One step at a time,
the sensitivity level lowers. Then, the unthinkable occurs.

Have you stumbled in this sensitive area of your life? Confess,
make amends, clear yourself with the proper people. Where are you
in your walk with God Himself? If you must get reconciled to Him,
do it now!

Sexual holiness demands we not play games in flirting, body
language, and clothing. In the cases of fallen men I know, they
first failed in precisely those areas.

Keep friends accountable -- and ask them to keep you accountable
-- before drastic failure, discipline, and immense sorrow occur.
