Mikey Likes It!!

Mat 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Lesson #6

Now that the Tree is cut down, it must be put on a shaker to get the dead needles off of it.

Lesson #7

Once the Tree is home, it has to be put in a tree stand and stood up!

Lesson #8

The tree must be placed in a good, solid tree stand.

Lesson #9

The tree must be watered in order to last through the season.

Lesson #10

The tree is decorated by it’s owner and has no choice in what is put on it. The owner decorates the tree the way he or she wants to.

Application

The owner already has an idea of what is going on the tree.  The already have a theme picked out for the decorating.  They know which lights will go on it and where.  They know where the tree will be placed, probably in front of a window.  Likewise God knows where He will put you, how you will get there, what will be placed on you, how much will be placed on you, and will decorate you according to the “theme” that your life will take.  It is not for the tree to accept or reject what it’s Owner has for it; the tree just simply needs to bear the weight of whatever is put on it.  What about you christian?  Are you trying to “shake off” what God has put on you?  What He does in your life is not for you to accept or reject; it is for you to be decorated with.  Will you accept what God puts in your life?  Remember, if He put it in your life, you will not be able to get rid of it.  Just accept it and move on…you just might like it.  Remember the “Life Cereal” commercial…”Mikey likes it!!”
