Here' s a few of the questions that I used and the contestant's answers:
Name something you buy at the supermarket
Name something you stuff
The same guy did the following two answers.
Name a time when most people get up?
Name a time when most people go to bed?
This was fun and the people seemed to be very engaged with what we were going. It was my way of introducing my subject tonight which was "Giving is Fun." God loves a cheerful giver and it is very often fun to give. Especially when you give to others as a way of giving to God. Proverbs 19:17 says (NIV), "Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done." The Bible says that we can give to God when we give to the poor. That is especially true when our motive is right.
If Jesus showed up at my house, I would want to do everything I could to serve Him. I would give Him the best seat, fix His favorite supper, and wait on His every need. He's probably not going to show up at my house in physical form. I can still serve Him by serving other people. Matthew 25:40 says, "The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
Let's go serve Jesus by serving another human being with great joy and cheerfulness. Here's a fun story from the book, "I Like Giving." "I was with my 3 boys on a Saturday afternoon going to drop off the younger two at Chuck E Cheese for a birthday party. I walk in to make sure that Graham and Joe were taken care of, and the boy manning the entrance rope, says “hey, that’s a really, really cool shirt”…..indeed it was, and my favorite shirt at that, a very, very nice UNC (sorry Duke fans) golf shirt. I said, “thanks” and dropped my boys off.
