(lent) 20


the halfway point.
and yet so much would happen in the life of Christ during those final few weeks leading up to the cross...

number of baby teeth.

jersey number of Barry Sanders, easily one of the greatest running backs of all time. Sanders walked away from football at age 30, a mere 1,500 yards away from breaking the all time rushing record.

questions. a popular game that involves (you guessed it) asking 20 questions.

The Twenty Year Curse refers to the pattern of presidents of the United States who were elected to office in 1840, 1860, 1880, 1900, 1920, 1940, and 1960 to die in office. This pattern ended with the 1980 presidency of Reagan, who survived his time in office and, notably, an attempted assassination.

CB Slang for "a place", being short for "10–20", used in reference to a person or object's location

the atomic number of Calcium. my mom used to make me drink milk as a child "for the calcium." i always hated milk. on my first day of college i thought of my mom and decided i'd drink one glass of milk a day. that lasted for exactly one day.

/20 ~ name of the longtime running prime time news program on ABC.

/20 ~ an indication of normal vision, often referred to as 'perfect vision'.

/20 hindsight. When someone is able to see only after an event has taken place, how things turned out.

Age in which Levites in the time of King David were allowed "to do the work for the service of the house of the Lord", the Temple in Jerusalem (see First Chronicles Chapter 24, verses 24 and 27). In the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, following the Babylonian captivity, it was Levites from the age of 20 upwards who were assigned "to oversee the work of the house of the LORD" (Ezra Chapter 3, verse 8).

20. hindsight. how have you witnessed the work of God in your life?
20. perfect vision. how have you kept your eyes on the prize? how have you kept your eyes on Jesus?
20. what were you doing at that age? i know that i wasted so much time then (and now, too). but God enabled the Levites to serve and work and oversee the work of the Lord. God doesn't call the equipped... he equipped those he calls.

how is He calling you today?
