This week, I was blessed both Monday and Tuesday to listen to the messages of Don McLaughlin in chapel. I encourage you to take the time, and listen to his messages as well. And I pray that you both enjoy, and that they impact you as much as they did for me.

Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Here comes the Spider-man.
New York City, is not the only place full of webs. For you see, your “friendly neighborhood Spider-man” is not the only one who spins them. You–each of us, every person is spinnin’, spinnin’ webs.
No two webs are the same, each are unique. As we go about our daily lives each day–walking down the road, texting a friend to ‘hang out,’ going to the grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk–we’re spinnin’, spinnin’, spinning webs: family, work, school–each a thread that we weave into our intricate design. Everything is connected in our life, a strand of silk that has become a part of our web.
But as we’re spinnin’, spinnin’ our webs–they are not always so easy to control, are they? Some are too intricate, too many strands which trip us up and tangle us. Some of our webs are too big and we catch too many flies within them, or too small and we catch too few. Some of us are maybe even weaving a destructive web, a web of lies, which wastes silk and becomes too much of a maintenance to control.
This is a pretty remarkable story! Check it out.
