We had a poster in my middle school of a man with a funnel in his head. Lemons were falling out of the sky into the funnel and lemonade was pouring out of his nose into a glass. The caption read, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
The poster was troubling on many levels. Who was throwing lemons at this guy? Who stuck a funnel in his head? And why was this poster in our lunchroom?
The poster was right by another poster with the caption “Knowledge is power.” The only inference my seventh-grade mind could draw was “Don’t drink the lunchroom lemonade – it apparently came from some guy’s nose.”
Genesis 3:1-2 illustrates the importance of knowing God’s word. Adam and Eve could have avoided disaster if they had only thought about what God said (Genesis 3:1-2). This week, we will discover how knowing God’s word is essential for us, too.
See you Sunday!
