The Floating Balloon!

This past Wednesday I was at the Freedom Biker Church in Duncan, OK. We were doing a children’s camp on 30 acres of land the church has purchased! On the last night I wanted to do something special for the parents and their kids.

They have a pond, so I thought we’d go down to the pond and blow one of my 72 inch balloons up and float on the water. We laid a blanket in the back of a  pick up truck and blew the balloon up.  I crawled in first, Billy Don crawled in next. Pastor Billy drove the truck down to the pond with the tailgate down. He backed the truck up into the pond and we rolled out bursting the balloon as we fell into the water.

Soaked and cover with mud we thought we’d give her another try. I’m thinking, there’s no way the balloon is going to hold together when we start crawling in because of all the mud on our bods. It was amazing, the balloon didn’t pop and we rolled right off into the water.

That balloon was filthy inside, mud everywhere, but on the outside, it was nice and clean. That’s exactly the way it is with people. They look nice and clean on the outside, but on the inside they’re filled with all kinds of junk that God’s Word calls sin!

No one knows what’s in the heart of man but God!  You can hide things from mom, dad, brothers, sisters and spouses, but you can’t hide it from the Lord. He sees all, hears all, and knows all!

Matthew 15:19 says, “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander!”FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailShare
