Pick Anything! In His Word 6-10-2024


Pick anything! In His Word 6-10-2024

We used to play a game from time to time with the kids, mostly when we were driving someplace, sometimes when they were just bored. I would tell them to pick and item and we would ‘find Jesus in it’. In other words, we would find a way that this item could be used to share about Jesus with anyone, anytime, anywhere that it was there.

When Jesus noticed that all who had come to the dinner were trying to sit in the seats of honor near the head of the table, he gave them this advice: “When you are invited to a wedding feast, don’t sit in the seat of honor. What if someone who is more distinguished than you has also been invited? The host will come and say, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then you will be embarrassed, and you will have to take whatever seat is left at the foot of the table!

 “Instead, take the lowest place at the foot of the table. Then when your host sees you, he will come and say, ‘Friend, we have a better place for you!’ Then you will be honored in front of all the other guests.  For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Luke 14:7-11

Jesus did this a lot with parables. Or just plain story lessons like above. He took the behaviors of the guests and found a way to share how God would have us behave.


So today,  this will be fun trust me, I want you to look around the room you are in, then go to the post on my website teresawilson.com and find this blog. The date is above, so it can be easy, but then go to the ‘Comment’ spot at the bottom and tell me what you saw and how  you can relate it to Jesus! Sure, I know anyone can do it right? Maybe.

Okay, I chose the cat that just walked up to me. It is a common occurrence and I thought of how she is persistent like Jesus. She waits beside me just staring at me, like my Bible, until I give her the attention. So, my scripture is; Behold I stand at the door and knock!


As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent.  Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.  To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. Revelation 3:19-21

She patiently, or impatiently at times, waits for me to invite her into my presence. Jesus does that when we need to realize He is there for us. He waits for us to say Hello Jesus come join me in my life, my world, my heart and mind!

What did you find?  Give it a try!  Try it with your kids, or your friends or family adult members too! It will be really fun to see what people pick!

Then look for a reference to back it up, in His Word!

 We also did things like a pencil; you can tell about how scribes wrote down the things we read in the Bible. There are scriptures that talk about writing things down. You cold also write a scripture or a note to encourage someone to look for Jesus in their life. 

Then easy things like a Rock, a cross, etc. So use some imagination but also look for it in His Word.
