Bigger, better, and more is how the world determines who is special and who is not. It's a message kids hear every day. But it's not God's message. Just like Punchinello, we all want to fit in--to be accepted by the crowd. But at times that may mean either looking and acting like others or risking being rejected.
God's truth is simple and unchanging, reminding us that it's not what we have that counts, but whose we are. This is a truth the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of Eli, his creator. Punchinello's hard-learned lessons show us how important it is to be who we were created to be, and why that matters. Let the two wonderful tales You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose--as 2 Books in 1--help you remember these important things: you were made the way you are for a reason, and there is Someone who will always help you be you--wonderfully you.
Where are you headed?Wherever it is and however you travel-by plane, train, bus or car-yours"re one of 118 million American adults who will be traveling the USA this year.We all travel for various reasons, but all those trips have one thing in common-a final destination chosen by the traveler. Given the expense of gasoline and maintaining a car, it doesnrs"t make sense to drive around aimlessly without a place to go. And with all the hassles of public transportation-high ticket prices, lost luggage, security checks, delays and missed connections-it would be unthinkable to randomly select an arrival city. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, it is the destination that is important.Yet, incredibly, millions of people are traveling without any thought about their final destination. They are traveling through life, everyoners"s most important journey... from birth to the grave. Every individual life journey is different, but all of us share the same end-death. But is death our final destination? Some think so. But the Bible declares that there is life after death. In fact, Godrs"s Word teaches us that, after death, everyone will arrive at one of two destinations. One of these destinations is desirable and one is not.Jesus once spoke of two men, a beggar and a rich man, who arrived at their final destinations. After death, the beggar was carried to a better place where Abraham was, but the rich man died and found himself in a place of suffering. "The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abrahamrs"s side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off..." (Luke 16:22-23).How tragic it is that so many, like the rich man, live their lives without giving any thought to their final destination.How does a person get a ticket for transport to heaven?

Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.
Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.
UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
