M-I-C—K-E-Y—-M-O-U-S-E.

WERE YOU ONE OF THE MILLIONS WHO SANG M-I-C—K-E-Y—M-O-U-S-E, THE MICKEY MOUSE THEME SONG, WHILE WATCHING THE MOUSEKETEERS IN FRONT OF A 12″ BLACK AND WHITE TV? WITH BIG EARS AND A SQUEAKY VOICE, MICKEY AS CREATED BY WALT DISNEY IN 1928. AFTER 86 YEARS, MICKEY IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED FACES AND IMAGES IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. CHILDREN OF ALMOST EVERY NATION LOVE MICKEY AND ADULTS AROUND THE WORLD CAN ASSOCIATE WITH MICKEY WHEN REMEMBERING BACK TO THEIR CHILDHOOD.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? DO YOU HAVE A CHILDHOOD MEMORY OF MICKEY? AS ADULTS, WE HAVE (HOPEFULLY) OUTGROWN OUR CHILDLIKE OBSESSION OF A CARTOON CHARACTER.

WHILE WE MIGHT HAVE OUTGROWN THE OBSESSION OF A FRIENDLY MOUSE, WHAT ADULT OBSESSIONS HAVE YOU CREATED OR FALLEN VICTIM? WHAT ARE YOUR NEW INFLUENCES AND DESIRES? ARE YOU OBSESSED WITH A NEW CAR, A BIGGER HOUSE, MORE SHOES AND CLOTHES, MORE MONEY, OVER EATING, LUST, ALCOHOL, POWER, FAME OR ATTENTION FROM OTHERS? DO YOU VIEW OTHERS OF A DIFFERENT RACE OR NATIONALITY BELOW YOU? DO YOU EXCUSE YOUR CHOICES AND ACTIONS BECAUSE ‘EVERY ONE ELSE DOES IT’ OR ‘I MAY BE A SINNER, BUT I’M NOT AS BAD AS THIS PERSON OR THAT PERSON”?

SCRIPTURE WARNS US OF UNCONTROLLED DESIRES, ACTIONS AND WORDS. FROM THE DAY SATAN TEMPTED ADAM AND EVE WITH THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT, SIN FILLS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. ARE YOU TAKING SPECIAL ATTENTION AND PRAYING TO LIVE THE LIFE AS GOD WOULD HAVE YOU?

THIS IS NOT A ‘MICKEY MOUSE’ SITUATION. IT IS A CHOICE. GOD’S WAY OR SATAN’S WAY. WHICH WAY ARE YOU CHOOSING?

“JESUS SAID TO HIM, ‘AWAY FROM ME, SATAN! FOR IT IS WRITTEN: WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'” MATTHEW 4:10
