Poor Gilligan
by PamFord Davis

Poor Gilligan; he can't get anything right.

Ironic, isn't it? They named an island after him.

What thoughts lead to nights of insomnia in his swinging hammock?

I'm incompetent. I'm inadequate. I'm a castaway

The Skipper is his mentor. I'm hoping he sees through Gilligan's carefree faade.

Did a Bible make it ashore?

Apostle Paul had survived a shipwreck. He would understand the plight of poor Gilligan.

"I don't say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being contentwhether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:11-13 HCS)."

Yes Gilligan, God can help you.

"It is not that we are competent in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our competence is from God (2 Corinthians 3:5 HCS)."

Hey, little buddy! Don't give up; your friends need you
