Throwdown Time!

We had our first Throwdown last week. We fought through...how fitting! Lake was sick with a 103 degree fever. Sam was sick also. But I thought we could do this another time or...if kids can play video games and be sick, surely we can have a bible study!

Since we are going through the Parables of Christ, we had to start with the parable that is the foundation of all others. The "wrestling ring", if you will is the Parable of the Sower. So our family spoke about the state of our hearts...what kind of soil does God find? The boys did pretty good, but I think we need to work on our listening skills...which brings us to the next phase of the Throwdown!

In every Throwdown we learn a "Wrestling Move". This week we learned the "ear-grab". Jesus said, "For them who have ears to hear..." If your mama ever grabbed your ear...she could make you do anything! If Jesus had our ears...He could make us do anything! The boys liked this...I'm just waiting for one to actually perform this move on their fellow siblings-cousins!

I think it is interesting how we go to church and come away saying..."Wow, that speaker was/wasn't annointed!" It is amazing how Jesus put the responsibility on the hearer...not the preacher! Yes, we need annointing...but for them who have ears to hear, let them hear!

Anyways...our next throwdown is this weekend. I have to prepare the next "move". But if my boys, or me for that matter, can master the "ear-grab"...we will be changing the world!

Love it!!! Can't wait to try that "ear grab" on my son...and hopefully teach him this lesson in the process. :)
