James 1:22Growing in Christ involves far more than just at-tending church, tithing, and listening to a sermon. Infact, many believers do these yet remain stagnant intheir walk. There are two elements necessary for us tobecome more like Jesus: instruction and involvement.The first of these, learning truth, is vital to a healthy walk with God. Our Savior proved the importanceof instruction by devoting much of His time on earth to it. The apostle Paul is another example, as hewrote letters to educate Christians about godliness.So how can we gain knowledge and understanding? One of the most important and effective ways isto read the Word of God. Scripture instructs us that just as newborns crave milk, we are to desire HisWord so that we might grow. I pray your spiritual thirst will become insatiable.Yet simply listening to the truth does not mean that we've acquired it. I know many people who loveattending Bible studies and expanding their knowledge base, but their lives remain unchanged. Just astoday's passage teaches, we have to apply the Word to our lives. Even so, actual growth requires morethan merely inputting information. It requires action. James 2:26 states, "For just as the body withoutthe spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead."Are we careless hearers, deceived into thinking that we're growing? Or are we listening intently andabiding in the truth? If we're truly maturing, our lives will be increasingly Christlike, and our desireswill align more closely with God's heart. Make sure that you are listening and responding to His truth.

God does not make grandmoth-ers like He once did. At least notlike MY grandmother. Grand-mother never trusted such thingsas banks with her money. Someoneonce told my grandmother, “If youwould put your money in the bank,they would pay you interest.”With a confused look on her faceshe responded, “I have enough in-terest in my money, nobody elseneeds to bother about it.” That wasthat!After my grandfather died, mywife and I had the opportunity totake grandma out for supper. Itwas a delightful restaurant and wethought it would be a real treat forher. More than once, I had to keepher from getting up and servingcoffee to the rest of the people inthe restaurant. After all, she didthat at the church suppers. Whynot here. “I’ve got two good legs,”she protested.Then came time to pay thecheck and the waiter brought thecheck and laid it in front of me. Iimmediately took a credit card outof my wallet and laid it on thecheck.I could tell grandma had neverseen a credit card before.“Put that away,” she said. “I be-lieve that man wants you to payfor our supper. Don’t you have anymoney?”“I’m paying for our supper withmy credit card,” I explained.“Oh, dear,” she moaned. “Youknow I don’t believe in cards.Cards are of the devil, and I havenever had a deck of cards in myhouse. I’m a little surprised thatyou, a minister, would be foolingaround with such things of thedevil.”She insisted we tip the waiter in“good ole American cash.” I am notsure if grandma ever really under-stood the credit card. She boughtnothing on credit and did not ac-cept credit. Everything had to bedone in cash. She often quoted thescripture verse that says, “Owe noman any thing . . .” (Romans 13:8KJV), which she took quite liter-ally.As grandma got older, shebegan to rethink the business of opening a bank account. Withouttelling anyone, she decided to go tothe bank and open an account. Shehad saved up $50 for this purpose.Grandma nervously entered thebank and walked up to the mansitting at the desk marked “New Accounts.”“Good morning, Ma’am. I’mGary Goodman. How can I helpyou today?”The man seemed pleasantenough, and grandma thought en-trusting him with the delicate jobat hand was probably safe.“I wanna open an account,” shemumbled.“Fine. I’ll get you all set up. Itwon’t take but a few minutes.”With that, he took out some papersand laid them on his desk in frontof grandma.“Now,” he said, “let’s begin.What is your name?”She told him.
In life, an “account at the bank” can be a relative thing
“O.K. What is your address?”“What?”“What is your address?”“Why do you need to knowthat?”“I’m just filling out the form,Ma’am.”The young man a little confusedwith her hesitancy said, “We cancome back to that. What is yourdate of birth?”Grandma’s face turned a littlered. “What do you want to knowthat for,” she gasped?“I’m just filling out the forms.Can you give me your telephonenumber?”That did it for grandma. She gotup from her seat and looked himright in the face and said, “Youngman, I don’t know who you thinkyou are, but I am not interested inyour advances. I’m old enough tobe your mother. You ought to beashamed.”Just then the manager of thebank walked by.“Mary, what are you doinghere?”The manager quickly assessedthe situation and told the youngman he would take care of this cus-tomer and tried to console mygrandmother.“I don’t know what’s gotten intoyoung folk these days,” she whis-pered.Barely concealing his managerhis smile he said, “I’ll take care of you, Mary,” he assured her. Heknew all the information about herand quickly filled in the paperwork and walked grandma to theteller for her first deposit.Grandma handed the teller acrumpled $50 bill. The teller tookit and gave her a deposit receipt.“Where’s my money?” grandmademanded.“It’s safe in the bank, Ma’am.”“How do you know my moneyfrom everyone else’s?”“The money is all deposited inthe bank, and if you need any, allyou do is write a check.”She showed grandma how towrite out a check. By nowgrandma was confused and morethan a little exasperated. Quicklygrandma wrote out a check for $50and handed it back to the teller.“You’re withdrawing all yourmoney?”“Yes.”The teller counted out $50 andhanded it to her. Grandma lookedat the teller and said, “No. I wantMY money.” The teller retrievedthe crumpled $50 bill and handedit to grandma.As she walked out, the tellerheard her mumble, “What a crazyway to run business. No wonderbanks fail.”There is only one sure account Ican bank on. Jesus said, “Lay notup for yourselves treasures uponearth, where moth and rust dothcorrupt, and where thieves breakthrough and steal: But lay up foryourselves treasures in heaven,where neither moth nor rust dothcorrupt, and where thieves do notbreak through nor steal:”(Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

Healthy Crock Pot Ideas
Long working days combinedwith extra activities don’t alwaysallow us enough time to preparetasty, healthy meals when we gethome. Consider preparing meals inyour crock pot (also known as aslow cooker); it allows you to justfix it and forget it until meal time.There are many benefits tousing crock pots. They allow easy,one-step preparation. Just add theingredients and cook. Because theslow cooker doesn’t allow steam toescape, the food inside retainsmoisture. Ingredients shouldn’tdry out or burn. Most meat andvegetable combinations can cookfor 8 to 10 hours without attention. Another benefit of crock pot cook-ing is that it can improve the nu-tritional content of our food. Theoutcome of cooking leaner, less ex-pensive cuts of meat with moist,long cooking times is very tendermeats and less shrinkage. Skirtsteak, shoulder or leg cuts are ex-amples of cuts of meat that canoffer a savings on your grocery bill.A crock pot can be used for a va-riety of healthy and satisfyingrecipes, including soups, pot roastsor poultry, stews, casseroles, anddesserts. For crock pot recipes thatuse condensed soups, plan to uselower-sodium and lower-fat ver-sions. Since vegetables cook slowerthan meat in the moist heat of thecrock pot, place root vegetablessuch as carrots and potatoes (cutinto small pieces of equal size) inthe bottom of the crock pot. Addtender vegetables like tomatoesand zucchini during the last 45minutes of cooking time, so theydon’t overcook. Add more flavorduring the cooking process byusing dried leaf herbs instead of ground herbs.Only fill the crock pot half totwo-thirds full. The food will notcook properly if the appliance isfilled to the brim. Try to resist thetemptation to lift the lid of thecrock pot to peek at your food dur-ing the cooking process. It is esti-mated that the temperature drops10 degrees each time the lid is re-moved, adding about 20 minutes tothe cooking time, since it takesthat long to recover the tempera-ture. As you become more familiarwith crock pot cooking, you will beable to adapt family favorite mealsto crock pot cooked meals. Whenchoosing recipes to adapt, chooserecipes that take at least 45 min-utes to cook; these recipes often in-clude ingredients that hold up tolong cooking times. To time anadapted recipe for the crock pot,estimate 3 to 4 hours on low forevery hour of conventional cook-ing.For many busy individuals,knowing that a healthy meal iswaiting at home helps avoid less-healthy convenience meals afterwork.
