When she was alive, my mom and I would play a little game called “head scratchers”. A “head scratcher” was something that you saw or heard on the news that just stopped you in your tracks and made you scratch your head in bewilderment. The light hearted version was “why do you park in a driveway but drive on a parkway?” or “If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving isn’t for you!”
One of moms “head scratchers” was, how can all of creation come from nothing but a swirling mass of gas that happened to explode? All life, the universe of planets, came to be from one magnificent gas ball! Kind of like a bomb going off in a Home Depot and the falling debris resulting in construction of several perfect homes. Hmmm…. scratch, scratch… But that’s what evolutionists believe!!
Hebrews 11:3 tells us, “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command”.
I find it interesting that people will go out of their way to try and disprove the existence of our God. Some will say that they don’t believe in God, they don’t believe in church, they don’t believe in the Bible but yet, these “atheists” are the first in line to register their kids in our “Early Learning Center”. Why? Many have told me that they want their children to have a good, moral, “Christian” education. They don’t prescribe to what the public schools are forced to teach! Hmmm… scratch, scratch…
Psalms 14:1 says, “Only a fool says in his heart, there is no God”.
Proverbs 22:6. “Teach a child on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it”.
We can go on and on with this head scratch game. Maybe that’s what happened to my hair? A couple more examples include why pot shops and liquor stores were deemed essential businesses during the pandemic but restaurants were not. Or, killing the unborn is ok in many states, except when a man from California killed his pregnant wife he was convicted of a double homicide! More baffling is how people can change their sexual identity, or, embrace same sex marriage. Scratch, scratch!!
Romans 1:24-25 tells us; “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator who is forever praised”
The Bible is sometimes not very clear, especially to the unchurched. It takes the Holy Spirit to help us understand and make clear what it’s telling us. Aren’t we blessed to have a loving and patient God?!
So…Head scratching is a good thing as long as we look for answers in scripture, not on the news, self-help books, or Twitter! Keep scratching!
Just wondering…How do they get full length movies on a stick of plastic the same size as my pinkie finger?!
