November 5

Matthew 5:11 - NLT
God blesses you when you are mocked and persecuted and lied about because you are my followers.

Ken could hardly wait to get back to school. Peter had ridden him about his weight the entire year before. When Ken had vowed to lose weight over the summer, Pete had laughed at him. 'Fat boy, you can't keep away from food. You'll be back, big as a beach ball. Don't kid yourself!' Ken could hardly wait to make Pete eat those words. He had spent the entire summer as a Christian youth counselor at camp. The people there were so supportive of what he was trying to do. They had made it possible. Not only had they helped him lose weight, but they helped him show Peter just how wrong he could be!

TODAY'S THOUGHT:  I'm going to prove that there's more to me than my weight!


Today's Tip:  Lose 20 Lbs.
Omit just 200 calories every day for a year, and you'll lose up to 20 pounds! One step in the right direction: Use mustard instead on mayo on sandwiches, and skip the cheese.
