The old adage tells us that when life gives you lemons you should make lemonade. In other words, make the best of the situation. But not everyone feels like we should just accept the situation and "roll over". Comedian Cave Johnson insists that you should instead:
"Make life take them back! Get Mad! Say, "I don't want your lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man whose gonna burn your house down - with the lemons!"
This coming Sunday, May 8th, we will be continuing in our new sermon series on the book of James that we're calling "Faith Works". In anticipation of what I'll be sharing, take a few minutes to read James 1:2-12. I hope that you'll be able to join us as we consider how our faith can bring us practical help in dealing with whatever comes along.
