By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16.
The other day I heard an advertisement for a church and at the end, their tag line was, "The church with the fountain." This stuck with me and not for the reason they meant it to. This church is known in the town because they have a fountain. I started thinking about that. Well, woopty do. I understand, there were probably a lot of drives, fundraisers, and donations to build that fountain. I look around at the churches with their spirals reaching the skies. I myself am currently attending one of those churches and they too have a fountain in the courtyard, but is that really what we want to be known for? Where is our fruit?
Why is our money going to build fountains when there are so many who are hungry to know the gospel? So many workers doing what we don't who need support and supplies and here we are known for having a fountain. How many are dying for a lack of fresh drinking water, yet we pay the electrical bill to run a fountain. Fountains may appeal to the genteel folks in Aiken and bring them to that particular church, but is it bringing people to Christ? Is it saving the lost? Is it what we want to be known for?

My daughter has graduated from her toddler bed to a queen bed. My original plan was to turn her toddler bed into a full and buy the bed rails that were supposed to go with it, but I literally walked into this free queen bed. My aunt and uncle were giving away their daughter's old mattress which is a really nice pillow top (on both sides) mattress. It was perfect for Abbie! But I own no queen sheets! For the past three weeks I've had a king top sheet tucked over her mattress.
I had to buy sheets. I started surfing and came across the Becky Cameron 1800 Series Bed Sheets.
