Young man, young lady you are grounded ( a thought on the Bible for young people )

Listen to a thought on the Bible or read it below.

Teens, and pre-teens what are you doing this Summer ? I have an idea of something to do that might you better teens, and pre-teens.
Hi I am Billy David Dickson with a thought on the Bible for young people.
What happens when you get in trouble with your parents, or with anyone who is in charge of you. Perhaps you got in trouble at school, or you came home after your curfew, or you talked back to your folks. What might happen to you.
Well your dad, or mom, or your legal guardian might say those deadly words you are grounded young man, young lady. What if I encouraged you to go get grounded this Summer.
No, I am not talking about a punishment. I am talking about getting closer to God, by becoming spirituality grounded.
The Bible in the book of James says ( James 4:8English Standard Version )
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
So how do we draw near to God, or get grounded in spiritual things.
First off we spend time in the Bible. God’s book not onły tells us what behavior is wrong. It also tells us what to do when we do wrong.Just like a football team needs to read and follow their playbook. We need to follow the playbook for life,which is the Bible.
Then we need to talk to God daily. It is called prayer. You, or I would not go a day without talking to our friends.Same goes for our relationship with the Savior.
We also should tell others about having a relationship with God, by putting one’s faith in Christ.Too many folks are trying to get right with God, and get into heaven by doing good works. It doesn’t matter if we are doing Catholic works, or Protestant works, or Jewish works they won’t make us right with the Lord, or get us into heaven when our life here on earth ends.
So to be grounded in a good way we need to spend time in the Bible, we need to talk to God, and we need to tell others about their need for a relationship with God by way of Jesus.
Ok young friends go get grounded. It is a cool thing.
That is a thought on the Bible for young people.
Until next time,
I’m Billy David Dickson

A Good Friday spanking ( Bible thought for kids ) 

Folks every so often I have decided I am going to post a Bible commentary that is mainly for children, and or young people. I thought Good Friday would be a good day to start doing that. I hope if you are a parent, or have young people in your life you will share these thoughts with them.Even us adults may learn from these thoughts. So don’t skip them, because you are not young, or don’t have young lads around you.Below is today’s Bible thought for kids.
( Listen to the Bible thought here, or read it below. )

   Hi boys, and girls: You may think Good Friday has nothing to do with you.

I’m Uncle Billy with a thought on the Bible.

Guess what Good Friday is for everyone adults, children, and teens.

     What happened on Good Friday? We will get to that in a second.

          When I was kid there was a Disney movie called Tom Swayer. If you have never seen it ask your parents about it, or ask their permission to get the DVD, or watch it on You Tube.

    In part of the movie the kid Tom, and a girl named Becky Thatcher are writing notes on their slates to each other,while the teacher’s back is turned. 

      Then Becky drops her slate. The teacher turns around,and demands to know who the slate belong to. Tom jumps up and says it is his slate.

    The teacher tells Tommy to go to the front of the room. The teacher then takes a switch, which is a whip,and spanks Tom good.

   What Tom Swayer did makes me think of what Jesus did by going to the cross for us. Jesus was sinless. Yet he took your punishment, and my punishment. We deserved to be punished because all of us are sinners. We deserve to go to hell, which is where our sins are sending us. Yet God loved us so much that he had Jesus go to the cross. Because a Holy God demands punishment for sin. Boys, and girls when you do something wrong your parents might give you some kind of punishment.Just like your parents have rules, God has rules on how to go to heaven. 

   Romans 5:8 tells us that the Lord loved us so much that Christ died for us while we were yet sinners.

   If you have never turned away from sin, and trusted in what Jesus did for you, I encourage you to do that. Going to church, or doing a lot of good works won’t get you into heaven, or make you right with God. It is changing your mind about sin, and trusting in what Jesus did for you.

Jesus not only died for our sins, but God the father proved Jesus was God, by raising his son from the dead. Which we will celebrate this Sunday. A day most folks call Easter. I prefer to call it resurrection Sunday. 

That is a thought on the Bible.

Until next time,

I’m Uncle Billy

Best Christmas gift for mom 

Christmas gift for mom: written by Billy David Dickson Hi children: Uncle Billy here. Boys and girls is there somebody you want to buy a gift for but don’t know what to get them or you don’t have enough spending money. Well in our story today we will hear about a little boy who didn’t have money to get a gift for his mom around Christmas but ended up giving her the best Christmas gift he could have given her. Listen to it. 

Jackie Brown had just finished her third week of 

Chemotherapy. 

 It was taking quite a tow on Jackie. She had been missing a lot of work at the insurance company she had been working at. However even though she was very tired Jackie decided there was no way she was going to miss anymore work. 

Mrs. Brown drove as fast as she could from the hospital to her job.

   When she got to her job there was a note on her desk that the head man Mr. Thompson wanted to see her as soon as she got in. 

  Right away she went to see Mr. Thompson. Mr. Thompson told her to have a seat.

         “You have been a very hard worker. Jackie when you are here all of us enjoy the hard worker you are. However you have been missing too much work. I hate to do this but I am afraid we are going to have to let you go. I am sorry and we wish you the best.” Mr. Thompson explained to Mrs. Brown. 

       Mrs. Brown was shocked and very sad. She tried to explained to Mr. Thompson she had been missing work because of her health issues. However he would not let her.

  “We have a firm rule about how much work you can miss and you have gone passed that. I am sorry. Have a good day Jackie,” Mr. Thompson said as he walked out the door. 

    Mrs. Brown had tears coming down her eyes as she drove home.

After being home for a few hours her 12 year old son Timothy came running in from school. 

   “Hi mom. I had a great day at school.”

             “Son we need to have a talk,” Mrs. Brown told her son.

                      “Mom did my teacher call you about me throwing some snow balls at school? Timothy asked.

     “No but perhaps I need to call your teacher.”

            “Oh me and my big mouth,” expressed Timothy. 

                     “Timothy I want to talk to you about my job.”

                       “Hey I thought you told me you were going to be at work this afternoon.”

                             “Son I got fired today because I missed too much work”

                     “Mom that is not fair. The only reason you miss work is because of you having cancer. “.

Best Christmas gift for a mother from her son 

Below is a story I wrote a few years ago. This year I read it to the kids at the daycare where I work. It is based on a true story I read in the newspaper one year. 

Christmas gift for mom : Hi children: Uncle Billy here. Boys and girls is there somebody you want to

buy a gift for but don’t know what to get them or you don’t have enough

spending money. Well in our story today we will hear about a little boy who

didn’t have money to get a gift for his mom around Christmas but ended up

giving her the best Christmas gift he could have given her. Listen to it.

Jackie Brown had just finished her third week of

Chemotherapy.

( More below )

It was taking quite a tow on Jackie. She had been missing a lot of work at

the insurance company she had been working at. However even though she was

very tired Jackie decided there was no way she was going to miss anymore

work.

Mrs. Brown drove as fast as she could from the hospital to her job.

  When she got to her job there was a note on her desk that the head man

Mr. Thompson wanted to see her as soon as she got in.

 Right away she went to see Mr. Thompson. Mr. Thompson told her to have a

seat.

        “You have been a very hard worker. Jackie when you are here all

of us enjoy the hard worker you are. However you have been missing too much

work. I hate to do this but I am afraid we are going to have to let you go.

I am sorry and we wish you the best.” Mr. Thompson explained to Mrs. Brown.

      Mrs. Brown was shocked and very sad. She tried to explained to Mr.

Thompson she had been missing work because of her health issues. However he

would not let her.

 “We have a firm rule about how much work you can miss and you have gone

passed that. I am sorry. Have a good day Jackie,” Mr. Thompson said as he

walked out the door.

   Mrs. Brown had tears coming down her eyes as she drove home.

After being home for a few hours her 12 year old son Timothy came running

in from school.

  “Hi mom. I had a great day at school.”

            “Son we need to have a talk,” Mrs. Brown told her son.

                     “Mom did my teacher call you about me throwing some

snow balls at school? Timothy asked.

    “No but perhaps I need to call your teacher.”

           “Oh me and my big mouth,” expressed Timothy.

                    “Timothy I want to talk to you about my job.”

                      “Hey I thought you told me you were going to be at

work this afternoon.”

                            “Son I got fired today because I missed too

much work”

                    “Mom that is not fair. The only reason you miss work

is because of you having cancer. ”

   “Son we will not be able to have much of a Christmas far as gifts go.”

              “Mommy that is ok. Jesus will be with us.”

               Mrs. Brown then gave her son a big hug.

The next day Timothy decided he needed to do something special for his

mother for Christmas. However he had no idea what to get her and as a 12

year old he didn’t have much money to buy her something special.

Then a thought came to his mind what did his mother want the most.

“To get her job back,” he answered himself.

      He got his laptop out and wrote Mr. Thompson a letter asking him to

give his mom her job back.

    In the letter he wrote his mom had no idea he was writing it and he

told why his mom had missed so much work.

It was pretty late when he finished writing it. His mom came and knocked on

his door.

“Honey don’t worry about your bedtime tonight. They just said on the news

a big snowstorm is coming and schools are going to be closed.”

        “OH I got get this in the mail so that Mr. Thompson gets it before

Christmas which is next week. ”

( More below )

       Timothy knew he might be in big trouble if he got caught but

decided he had to sneak out of his house and mail the letter. So he quietly

went out the window in his room.

 He got the letter mailed but then on his way back a police man saw him.

The city where they lived had a strict 11:00 P.M. curfew for children.

 The police officer put him in his car and told Tim he was taking him home.

      “Great I will be grounded until I am 25.”

When Mrs. Brown opened the door she was shocked to see Timothy with the

officer.

“Young man why did you sneak out?” Demanded Mrs. Brown.

    “I had to mail a letter,” answered Timothy.

           Timothy also told her he could not tell her who the letter was

to.

            “OK Timothy Johnson Brown for sneaking out you are grounded

for three weeks. Now go to bed! Mrs. Brown told her son as she gave him a

hard swat across the butt.”

    “Ouch!” Timothy yelled.

             A day before Christmas Timothy was still grounded when his

mom got a phone call from Mr. Thompson. He told her about the letter

Timothy had written him and how sorry he was for firing her. Then he gave

Mrs. Brown her job back.

    After she got off the phone she went over to her son and gave him a

hug.

         “Son the letter you wrote was the best Christmas gift you could

have given me. ”

                         Children Uncle Billy here. Kids when we do good

others might not be thankful at first for it. Timothy got in trouble for

sneaking out but then his mom was so happy for the gift he gave her.

The bible in

Galatians 6:9New International Version (NIV) reads

9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will

reap a harvest if we do not give up.

A Good Friday punishment ( a Bible values story for kids )

Boys and girls Uncle Billy here have you ever thought you were unfairly punished. Well in today’s story we are going back into time. In a time when teachers could punish kids in a painful way if they disobeyed. In our story one boy who didn’t do anything wrong is punished. Listen to it now.
“Drew lets cheat on today’s test,” suggested Timothy Allen as the two 6th graders walked to school.
“Are you nuts my mom is our teacher and she would murder me,” Drew Green answered back.
As soon as they got to school they played outside with their friends. It wasn’t too after they got to school that Mrs. Green came out and rang the school bell. As soon as the bell the boys and girls lined up according to their grades to enter the one room school house.
When Drew and Timothy entered the room they saw Mrs. Green had already passed out the 6th graders history test.
Drew and Timothy along with the other 6th graders as soon as they sat down started working at the test. While the 6th graders did the test Mrs. Green worked with the younger kids.
“Drew how about giving me the answer to number five,” Timothy asked.
“Be quiet before we get into trouble,” Drew told him.
“Well then how about telling me what you got for question 50 ? Timothy asked.
Just then Mrs. Green turned to see the two boys talking while they were working on the test.
Mrs. Green grabbed both boys by the ears.
“You two know my rules about cheating. Now come up with me to my desk.”
She then sat down on a chair and grabbed a switch that she had next to her desk.

Defending another soul: ( a Bible principal story for children )

Hi Boys and girls: Uncle Billy here. Children has anyone in your class or any of your friends ever been mistreated by somebody else? I bet they have been. Well in today’s Bible principal story we are going to hear what a little boy did when another child was being mistreated. Here it is.
“Today class we have a new student joining us,” Mrs. Brown told the 5th graders in her class.
“Is it the 16th President of the US Lincoln. I heard he has some free time now that the civil war is over,” Tommy Jones yelled .
All the 5th graders laughed.
“Kids do you want to go visit Principal Dixon! Tommy Peter Jones do you need me to call your mom again,” Mrs. Brown warned.
“No thanks she would skin me alive,” Tommy answered.
“Students I would like you to meet Robert Franks.
Some of the kids noticed that Robert had a hard time walking.
“Hey he is a crippled kid! Yelled Tommy.
“Tommy Peter Jones that was not nice at all. You can now go and put your nose in the corner for a time out. And I will be calling your mom.” Mrs. Brown said.
“Boy my butt is going to be soar after my mom gets her spanking spoon out. Tommy says to himself as he walks to the corner.
The next day at school during lunch when Robert Franks is walking with his food tray Tommy Jones put his foot out and trips him. Robert falls and his food goes flying everywhere. Drew Green watched the whole thing but did nothing.
“Too bad you can’t walk on your other foot,” Tommy yelled.
All the fifth graders laughed.
Robert got red in the eyes and runs off to be by himself.
After lunch Mrs. Brown was not happy at all.
She told the fifth grade class laughing at somebody is not nice to do. Then she gave the whole fifth grade class a time out by having them all put their heads down on their desks.
Drew Green thought it was unfair that he and some of the others got punished even though they did nothing wrong.

Wrong people: ( Bible Principal for children 12-4-14 )

Hi Boys and Girls: Uncle Billy here. Children have you ever gotten in trouble because somebody led you the wrong way. That is what happens to a young man in our story today. Here it is.
It was the first day of school and Jeff Reid was getting home two hours late.
“Young man where have you been! School was over two hours ago!” Demanded Mrs. Reid.
“Well I got into a little trouble and got a detention,” Jeff explained.
“I don’t believe it!” Jeff’s mom lectured her son.
“Hey other kids get detentions too including my big brother and little sister,” replied Jeff.
“It is the first day of school!” Most kids don’t get in trouble until later in the year.”
“I guess I am a fast learner.”
“Jeff today was your first day of middle school. I don’t want you getting into trouble like you did last year in 5th grade. Young man do I make myself clear?”
“Yes mom!”
Ok good. If you get in anymore trouble you will have to answer to me for it.
The next day at school Jeff’s friend Bobby Nelson told Jeff he had a great idea for a trick they could play on the girls gym class.
“What is the trick?” Jeff asked.
“While the 6th grade girls are in swimming class we will turn on all the showers in the girl’s locker room,”Bobby explained.
“OK that sounds like a fun idea.”

Making things right ( a Bible principal for children 11-26-14 )

Hi children: Uncle Billy here. Kids have you ever done something wrong to another person that you had to do something to make it right. That is what our story is about today.
Here it is.
“Girls time for breakfast,” Mrs. Wood yelled up to her daughters.
Brin and her older sister Allison came running to the kitchen. Brin almost ran into her mom who had a plate full of food in her hands.
“Brin what have I told you about running in the house,” Mrs. Wood lectured her daughter.
“Sorry mom. I just wanted to eat some of your great cooking,” Brin expressed.
“I know you are just trying to suck up. Now go sit down at the table,” Brin’s mom told her as she gave her daughter a hard slap across the behind.
“Mom you know I am a 9th grader now. Well Mr. Fred at the corner drugstore told me if you gave me your permission I could start working for him. So can I?” Allison asked.
“I guess you are old enough but if your school work suffers you will have to quit,” Mrs. Wood expressed.
“Yes I know. Thanks mommy.”
That day at school Jill Duck another 7th grader came up to Brin and suggested she joined the secret club she belonged to. So after school Brin went to a meeting the club had.
The head of the club Jean Walker told Brin their club was a cool club but to join it she would have to steal a watch from Mr. Fred’s drugstore. A few days later Brin talked Jill into going to the drug store with her. They just happened to pick a day when Allison was working.
As soon as they walked into the store Jill pointed out where the watches were. As soon as Allison’s back was turned Brin grabbed a watch and slipped it into her pocket. Then the two girls quickly left the store.
