My Pre Super Bowl Prediction

1.35 billion (that's with a B) chicken wings will be consumed over the course of the weekend.
139 million pounds of avocados will be consumed during the Super Bowl.
In 2017, Nielsen reported that Americans would spend
$277 million on Potato chips
$225 million on Tortilla chips
$58 million on Deli sandwiches
$42 million on Salty snack dips
$23 million on Deli platters
$13 million on Vegetable trays
$1.2 billion would be spent on beer
$594 million on wine
$503 million on hard liquor

14 million workers will to not show up to work on Monday. 

Here are some excuses some people have used to call in sick.
The employee was bitten by a duck.  (Man, that was some duck!)
The employee said her roots were showing and she had to keep her hair appointment because she looked like a mess.  (That might be true.)
The employee was experiencing traumatic stress from a large spider found in her home. She had to stay home to deal with the spider. (I can understand that one.)
The employee was bowling the game of his life and couldn’t make it to work.  (Nope)
The employee said he had better things to do.  (At least they were honest.)

Approximately $4.76 billion will be bet on the Super Bowl.
Just 3% of it is expected to be wagered legally in Nevada.

My prediction is.  Everyone's cholesterol will be up.  Nothing will get on on Monday, and everyone will be broke.  

You thought I was going to tell you who was going to win the Superbowl?  I don't know.  I'm not clairvoyant. 

Matthew 24:37-39 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

God gave us the ability to recognize what is going on around us.  If we pay attention, we can see our world through the eyes of Jesus.  Much of our life is so focused on getting things done that we forget to look at the need right before our eyes.  The neighbor going through a divorce.  The friend who received a bad report from the doctor.  The homeless person who needs a meal.  Jesus wants us to stop and see what He sees. 

#1 - Focus on others, not on yourself.  
#2 - Look around you.  There are needs everywhere. 
#3 - Ask simple questions.  "How are you doing?  Is there anything I can do to help?" 
#4 - Smile.  Bad days are better when someone cares.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, let me be the person who sees what you see every day.  AMEN
