How To Make The World 100 Times Better

The last thing you expect when you offer a homeless person some spare change is for them to pay you back.

You certainly wouldn’t expect the beggar to multiply your generosity by 100 times.

But on this hidden camera prank from Jimmy Kimmel Live, that’s exactly what Jimmy’s Cousin Sal does.

Count Your Blessings And Not Your Candy

(Click Here if you can’t see the video above.)

It’s Friday.

The Halloween Hangover is looming over your head.

Deadlines are looming.

Your belly is aching.

You spent too much time trick or treating and procrastinating.

Your week may feel like it’s falling apart.

Hey – at least your parents didn’t steal all your candy.

It’s easy to scream and blame the world around you when something you didn’t plan for steals all your joy away.

But try not to have a kneejerk reaction like a kid thinking their parent ate all their peanut butter cups.

After all, the kids didn’t know the whole story. Their parents were just playing a joke.

The problem you’re getting upset about is probably not that bad. By the time twelve o’clock rolls around you’ll have already forgotten about it.

If you’re angry about some stolen Snickers bars today, hold strong. God has a great punchline coming your way to put a smile back on your face. And just when you think your candy bag is empty, you’ll find in it more Milky Ways than you could have dreamed of.

Happy Friday.

 

POP GOD POPcast: Episode 1 – Clay Bagby

slide.001

Welcome to the latest addition to POP GOD – the POP GOD POPcast. Throughout the next few weeks I’ll be interviewing different people in the Augusta community and beyond who are seeking God and sharing his message in unique ways.

This week’s guest is Clay Bagby, Young Life Augusta Area Director. Clay talks about growing up in Augusta and coming back to his home town and alma mater to lead Young Life. He shares one of the best pranks he ever committed, his views on pop culture’s effect on today’s teens, how he got involved with Young Life, and more. Plus Clay takes our first ever POP Quiz! You’ll really enjoy this look into one of Augusta’s leaders in youth ministry. It’s a great listen for anyone in Augusta or anyone not in Augusta who wants to hear a unique perspective on ministry.

I’m so excited to open up POP GOD into a new area and share with you other’s stories of seeking God in the present tense. I’d love to hear your feedback. Leave me a comment and let me know how to improve things, what you’d like to hear discussed, and give me your ideas as to who you’d like to see on the POPcast.
