Taking Out the Brown M&M’s

Most music artists have specific requests they require for their dressing rooms. Some are as simple as a certain brand of bottled water and some are extreme. One band is even notoriously known for insisting that a bowl of M&M’s be provided backstage – with every single brown candy removed!

It turns out this was not a case of arrogant celebrities making insane demands; but rather an ingenious safeguard to ensure every detail was handled correctly by the arena production crews leading up to the show. If details are important for a concert, how much more so for the precious resources God has entrusted to us to bless our families and the ministry organizations close to our hearts! Jesus said, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” (Luke 16:10). One important way we can be trustworthy – whether we have little or much – is to make sure we have an up to date Will.
