Congrats James! This was James' second Helmet of the Btln Season! It seems like every week James is in the final three in Bulldog. This week he would not be denied the Helmet!
This week we had special guests, Drew and Rik Brown! It is so good to have Alumni surprise us on a Wednesday Night!
Last week we played Mike 23 for the second time this year. This week we played Stickball for the second time this year. It seems as if the guys are starting to get the strategy required to make Stickball fun. Learning to hit the ball so that it ends up in your own quadrant and playing proper defense make the game so much fun. The game still has a few rules that might need to be tweeked, but I think that we have most of the kinks worked out.
STICKBALL Final Scores
Ben's team - 13
Drew's team - 12
Nathan's team - 11
Noah's team - 8
In Bible study our topic this week was Pride and Humility.

Romans 12:16   Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

Proverbs 16:5   The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
Proverbs 16:18   Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 11:2   When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

After reading these passages, it is obvious that God hates pride. Why does he find it detestable? When we are proud we are telling God that we don't need his help. The truth is, that we are all in desperate need of God's help.

Micah 6:8   He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Ephesians 4:2   Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Philippians 2:3-4   Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Colossians 3:12   Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

It is important for us to learn to walk humbly with God. Secondly, we need to show humility to everyone that we come into contact with. What an amazing place this world would be if everyone would learn to live like this!
