TOPIC: THE TIM ALLEN PRISON STORY: WATCH SOMEONE’S BACK!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 1 CORINTHIANS 10:23-33
23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth.
25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
26 For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.
27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if any man say unto you, this is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof:
29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience?
30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

“Tim Allen” rose to fame as a comedian and then as the star of TV’s Home Improvement. His real names are Timothy Alan Dick, but known professionally as Tim Allen: He is an American actor and comedian. He is known for playing Tim The Toolman Taylor on the ABC sitcom “Home Improvement and Mike Baxter on the ABC/Fox sitcom “Last Man Standing.” Most people know him as an actor but they don’t know that he spent time in jail in the late 70s for a drug charge. Tim got into some bad habits being a college hippy and not your typical kind of criminal. So when he was arrested, he was thrown into a holding cell and he said it was the scariest thing in the world. He was incarcerated with about 14 big, hardened criminals with multiple kinds of records. The cell was the kind where a guy blinked and you saw that he had tattoos on his eyelids. Wow! He said what was so scary about that scenario was the fact that there was one toilet right in the middle of the room. So he thought; here he was, thrown into this holding cell with 14 monster-looking guys and he vowed to himself: I am not going to use that toilet no matter what.” But he thought to himself, “on my gosh, what’s going to be more embarrassing to use the public toilet or to soil myself?” So he went over and sat on the toilet right in the middle of the cell. As soon as he did that, those fourteen guys came at him. They turned their backs and formed a semi-circle around him to protect him from the view of the guards standing in the hallway looking into the cell. Tim Allen said all of a sudden he realized that: This was what it meant to be human – we have to protect each other’s back and nowhere is that fact more important than when we are in various battles. If criminals have some element of humanity in them, then as 2020 ends, let God use you to help and protect someone daily! Today’s Scripture Verse 24 says: “Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth (concern).” Even if people have betrayed you in the past despite the good you did to them, refuse to stop doing good because the LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING has no deadline and it MUST manifest in your favour!
