State budget plays havoc for local schools State dollars flowing to the Crawford County R-1 School District are being reduced. In the last few years the funding for transportation, gifted pro- grams, and technology has slowly gone down. In the cur- rent year the school is faced with a $70,000 withholding i n state funding. The school board took quick action to freeze discretionary spending when the learned of the with- holding. The $70,000 reduction of the result of a $61.3 million re- duction statewide. Reports from Jefferson City vary in how much Missouri schools will be cut next year. The numbers range from $105 million to $300 million. For the Crawford County R-1 School District this translates to revenue reductions between $180,000 and $421,000. The impact on the Crawford County R-1 School District would be a significant reduc- tion in opportunities for chil- dren through the reductions in staff and programs. ]m Out " Stamp Out S..m Out "'- Pastors Corner Charles Ledbetter, Pastor, Dehli Baptist Church Then will I hear from Heaven II Chronicles 7:14 Who are God's people? God's people are those who have been born into the family of God. Those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21) Just to be a church member or good person will not make you a child of God. We need to look into our own life and judge ourself. Does the life we live tell the world that we are a child of God? We can say all we want to, but our actions speak so loud that people can't hear a word we are saying.'Let us live so that the world can look at our lives and know that we are the people of GOd. If we profess to be a Christian, let us act like one. First, we need to humble ourselves to God. We need to pray like the publican prayed in Luke 18:13, "God be merciful to me a sinner". How many of us pray this way? Instead, do we tend to pray like the Pharisee in verses 11-127 God has always honored humility. Second, we need to pray and seek God. We find times when our Lord continued all night in prayer. If Jesus felt the need to do this, shouldn't we also? How many times have you spent the entire night in prayer? God wants us to seek Him, which means to seek to please Him, seek His will for our life, and have His blessings given to us. How else do we accomplish this except through prayer? Third, this verse tells us that we are to turn from our wicked ways. If we humble ourselves, pray, and seek God's face, we will turn from our wicked ways. We don't hear enough preaching and teaching in this day and time about the way people live. It seems that Satan has twisted our minds into believing that it really doesn't matter what we do or how we live. If we believe that's okay, then do it. But if our beliefs are wrong, our behavior will be wrong. It doesn't matter what we lpelieve, it doesn't change God or His word. We need to live our lives according to what the Bible teaches. The last part of this verse tells us that if we do the first three, GOd will hear from heaven, and will forgive our sin, and will heal our land. Isn't this a wonderful promise? It's up to us. Before we receive God's blessings, there must be a turning to God. Are you ready to hear God's word, do His will, and receive His blessings? It's up to you.
