Last Week's Clues in Retrospect
Wed., Jul. 1. 2015 2:22pm EDT
How did you do on the clues we gave you for our previous single, "Tufftumbling" and "Patients"? Let's look at the clues in retrospect:
One day you're on top of the world, the next you're an outsider. One by one, we all face trials. The big issue is how we react when things hit hard. You can suffer amnesia, forgetting who you are in Jesus Christ, or you can bathe yourself in Word of God, remembering that "though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again." (Proverbs 24:16).
The clue for song #1 referenced five song titles and one album title by Chumbawamba, plus two words that alluded to the song itself, "Tubthumping":
Top of the World
One by One
Hit Hard (thump)
Sin is a like a disease. For treatment, we can go to the Great Physician (and get better) or Dr. Feelgood (and wind up in a coma with a DNR). It's so easy to worry what others think about you as you warn them. If the world says you're crazy and beating a dead horse, don't cry. You ain't the first, and even if one in a million gets saved, it's worth it.
The clue for song #2 referenced nine song titles by Guns N' Roses and had one allusion to their name. Hey, if you're doing Guns N' Roses, you gotta "Use Your Allusion," right? :) And, yes, we know Dr. Feelgood was a Motley Crue song; that was a red herring to throw you off the trail.
DNR (alluded to GNR)
It's So Easy
Think About You
If the World
You Ain't the First
One in a Million
