Neglected N's ~ Life Lessons from An Explosive TV Show ~ A to Z Blog Challenge

When I began thinking about the A to Z challenge, I thought for a long time about what I wanted to write. I tried to think of ways to find neat things about the English language with each letter. And then I thought, what if that letter didn’t exist? So I am doing an abbreviated version of my Life Lessons series that I normally do on Fridays, but without using the letter of the day. What would life be like without that letter? Let’s find out...

We like to watch the MythBusters at my house.  Together with my spouse, I like to locate all the cracks with their methodology that make their trial become less accurate. My kids like to watch stuff blow up. I have to admit I like that part too.

Mostly, we watch old episodes with a service that has the blocked letter as part of  its sobriquet. (Oh yeah, big word. Look it up. hehe) We saw a particular episode last week that dealt with myths from movies. This is far from a solitary episode that looks at Hollywood. It is a familiar topic for the show.

What zest we have to see the truth about our favorite movies! Yet how bored we get if asked to seek the truth of scripture. Why do we study our pastimes with so much more fervor? The Bible reveals truth about the very fabric of our souls, yet we declare it dull.

Over the years I have discovered that the Bible is hardly dull. The stories it holds easily compare to whatever Hollywood puts out. Here is your dare for the day: locate a story from the Bible that you allow to be a tale to pique curiosity.  Just the other day I came across where God had all Israel partake of gold.

What have you come across?

Side note: You can also find me over on Regency Reflections today. I'm talking about strange taxes in 19th century England.
