Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

"Behind in His Reading"

[I'm posting this just because I read it today, and I think it's funny.]

Junior bit the meter man,
Junior kicked the cook.
Junior's antisocial now
(according to the book). 
Junior smashed the clock and lamp,
Junior hacked the tree.
(Destructive trends are treated
in Chapters 2 and 3.) 
Junior threw his milk at Mom,
Junior screamed for more.
(Notes on self-assertiveness
are found in Chapter 4.) 
Junior tossed his shoes and socks
out into the rain.
(Negation, that, and normal:
disregard the stain.) 
Junior got in Grandpop's room,
tore up his fishing line.
That's to gain attention.
(See page 89.) 
Grandpop seized a slipper and
yanked Junior 'cross his knee.
(Grandpop hasn't read a book
since 1923.)

[The above poem, author unknown, appears in James Dobson's The New Strong-Willed Child (Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 2004), 139-140.]
