Christmas Ministry: Duck Dynasty and Samaritan's Purse Collaborate

In 1993 Samaritan's Purse started Operation Christmas Child to collect gifts for needy children and to share the Gospel. Churches, individuals and groups fill shoeboxes with gifts. National Collection Week is November 18-25.

According to the Samaritan's Purse website, "more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts."

In this humorous video Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty fills a shoebox. Obviously there are certain items that shouldn't be included in these shoeboxes. Samaritan's Purse has a list of appropiate gifts here.

Do animals praise God?

In the following video a bird "dances" to Amazing Grace and other hymns. This could be a form of nonverbal praise. Humans also use nonverbal forms of praise such as clapping our hands.

Jesus referred to supernatural praise or nonverbal praise in Luke 19. When the Pharisees tried to quieten Jesus' disciples, He said, "I tell you, if they were to keep silent, the stones would cry out!"

Jon Stewart Asks Probing Questions About Obamacare

On Monday The Daily Show host Jon Stewart questioned Kathleen Sebelius the Secretary of Health and Human Services about Obamacare. Although Stewart voted for President Obama, he is critical of several aspects of the new health care law.

"If I'm an individual that doesn't want it, it would be hard for me to look at a big business getting a waiver ... I would feel like you are favoring big business because they lobbied you ... but you're not allowing individuals that same courtesy."

Stewart prefers a single-payer system in which the government would take over health care instead of health care costs being determined by the free market.

If you have an opinion about Obamacare and whether it should be the law of the land, please share it in the comments.

Lying has become so pervasive that researchers are studying this destructive behavior and author Ralph Keys says that we live in a "post-truth era."

Recently the American Psychological Association published a study showing that liars may experience a "cheater's high."

Science Today reported, "Even when there was no tangible reward, people who cheated felt better on average than those who didn't cheat, according to results of several experiments that involved more than 1,000 people in the U.S. and England."

In the following video Pamela Meyer describes clues that indicate when someone is lying. Meyer wrote the book Liespotting. Meyer is also CEO of Calibrate, a company that trains people to detect deception.

VIDEO: Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.

Model Cameron Russell echoes the wisdom of Jesus Christ and MLK in the following TED Talk speech.

Jesus told his followers, "Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment." (John 7:24 ESV)

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Cameron tells the story of a New York University student counting all the runway models in 2007 and determining that "less than 4 percent were non-white."

Skin color still determines the job opportunities available for some people.

Miss America contestants' prayers for Miss Florida paid off when Myrrhanda Jones won the Miss America Talent Competition.

Viewers of Sunday's Miss America pageant maybe noticed that Miss Florida wore a knee brace. That's because Jones tore her ACL and MCL while practicing her baton twirling routine. The pain was so overwhelming that Jones collapsed on stage. That's when some of her competitors immediately formed a prayer circle and even prayed over Jones' knee before she was taken away on a stretcher.

Jones later returned to the competition and bravely carried on with her twirling performance.

Seeing the Unseen: the Broken Window Fallacy

How are faith and economics similar? Both recognize the importance of "unseen" activity.

The Bible places much emphasis on faith and defines this word in Hebrews 11:1 which says, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."

Near the end of his life French economist Frédéric Bastiat wrote an essay titled Ce qu'on voit et ce qu'on ne voit pas [translated in English as That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Unseen]. Bastiat recognized that there are "unseen" costs when destructive activities take place.

Investopedia explains, "... the fallacy comes from making a decision by looking only at the parties directly involved in the short term, rather than looking at all parties (directly and indirectly) involved in the short and long term."

In this video Amanda Billyrock illustrates and narrates chapter two of Henry Hazlitt's book Economics in One Lesson which also explains the broken window fallacy.

"Economics in One Lesson" Series

According to Investopedia, "The broken window fallacy is often used to discredit the idea that going to war stimulates a country's economy." FULL POST
