Triple-dog-dare…. An issued triple-dog-dare has no counteraction and must be implemented and/or carried out. Ever seen the movie “A Christmas Story”?
Flick: Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That’s dumb!
Schwartz: That’s ’cause you know it’ll stick!
Flick: You’re full of it!
Schwartz: Oh yeah?
Schwartz: Well I double-DOG-dare ya!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a “triple dare you”? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.
Schwartz: I TRIPLE-dog-dare ya!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat!
At Mt. Pleasant we started a series called “I Triple-Dog-Dare You”. Over the next few weeks the people of Mt. Pleasant will be dared to think, live and be different. Throughout scripture we are told that to be a follower of Christ, we must have a renewed mind and live a holy life. That means that we will both think and behave differently from the world. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
I Triple-Dog-Dare you to join us as we learn how followers of Christ think differently and how a renewed mind changes everything for the believer.
