JUST THINKIN' . . . a devotional by Jim Green


SCRIPTURE: “The same vision was repeated three times. Then the sheet was suddenly pulled up to heaven.” Ac 10:16 NLT

SEE IT: Rewind

JIMISM: 6685. Paying attention is a rare bird, it flaps its wings but seldom flies.  JG

LIVE IT: If you’ve gone to the movies recently, then you probably recall the advertising before the movie even if the movie itself was not remarkable. That’s because the time before the movie must be filled with something and fewer advertisers mean repeating ads. The challenge for the marketing department, however, may not be what is shown in the ad as much as what is being advertised. Of course, I am not the typical movie-goer. As a sales and marketing guy, I am only interested in the video and its delivery, so you wouldn’t want to do market research on me. Besides, commercial time is designated talking, concession and restroom time is it not?

PRAY IT:  I am thankful for the many ways you teach me, God.

FIND IT:  Sight; Impression; Motivation

APPLY IT: Learn something new

Paying attention is a rare bird, it flaps its wings but seldom flies.
