The Big Brown Bear & Three Blonde Triplets
What if I said, “Once upon a time there lived a big brown bear out in the woods, whose name was “Barge.” Would you say to me, “Wait!, You mean there were three bears, don’t you?” And, what if I said, “Barge went for a walk one day where he had never been before, and he saw a log cabin, went to the cabin, and knocked on the door, but no one was home, so he walked on in.” Would you interrupt me, and tell me that belongs to another story?
I’ll continue with my story. At the table in the kitchen, there were three plates of pancakes. One plate had a very large stack of pancakes smothered in peanut butter, with strawberries all around, and coolwhip on top; the second plate had pancakes with only strawberries and coolwhip on top. The third plate was very small with only one pancake, and it had coolwhip all over it. Barge was hungry. He tasted the pancakes from the first plate, but the peanut butter stuck to the roof of his mouth. He thought to himself, “This breakfast is too gookey!”
So, he tasted the pancakes from the second plate. After he licked off all the coolwhip, Barge said to himself, “These strawberries are not sweet at all!” So, he tasted the last plate of pancakes: "Ahhh, this is just right," he said happily and he ate it all up.
Would you say that was posilutely and absotively “ludicrous?” What if I kept going with the story and told you there were three girls who lived in the cabin who were tripletts? Wouldn’t you want to know their names? Would it get you curious? Okay, so we’ll say, “There was “Big Sis,” “Little Sis” and the one with the honey-colored hair, their parents named “Honey.”
By now you would think I had copied the story of “Goldilocks & The Three Bears” but had slaughtered the story unmercifully. I have to ask why it is we have heard that story so many times about three bears who live in a house (Sure, right… whatever!) and yet we love the story, even though it is so unrealistic.
A girl coming in to some bear’s house to eat their breakfast? Ya-uh, okay!
Someone once told me, “If you don’t know what to believe, you’ll fall for anything!”
So, if I were to finish my story and be realistic, I would have to say, “The tripletts, Big Sis, Little Sis, and Honey all came home from their walk in the woods. Big Sis says, “Yikes! Someone’s been here , because some of my peanut-butter is gone.” Little Sis would then exclaim, “Uhh, look here guys… someone HAS been here because most all my strawberries have been eaten!” By then, Honey is in tears as she sees her breakfast has been taken, plate and all.” Long story short: Triplets see bear, bear sees Triplets, bear is hungry, bear smells Honey, bear eats girl. The End.
I know what you’re thinking: “That’s just WRONG!” Well, what about your life? Are you trying to live in a fairy-tale, or are you living in the “real?” I heard someone say, “What I don’t know can’t hurt me.” That is so far from the truth. If I’m going through a school zone that is 35 mph speed limit, but I don’t realize it in time, and I’m going 50 mph and get pulled over, guess what? More than likely, I’m getting a ticket.
I believe the reason The Lord put this on my heart is because He is concerned that the majority of His people surround themselves with so much fantasy, they have lost sight of what’s real.
In Proverbs 19:27 GOD tells us, “Cease My son to hear the instruction that causes you to err from the Words of knowledge.” Knowledge has no power in itself. It is only when that knowledge is true, when it is believed and walked out. There are A LOT of opinions, but ONLY ONE TRUTH. Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. I didn’t make that up, Jesus said it Himself in John 14: 6. If you want to know what that means, just ask Him to reveal it to you plain, unless you want to believe a lie.
