Cast
PETER – a young man with a tough decision to make
ANNE – a friend who gives wise advice
DORA – a friend who wants to help

PETER – I can’t decide what to do.

ANNE – What’s the problem?

DORA – His mother wants him to go to Christian camp the same week that his uncle promised to take him fishing.

PETER – I love fishing. We go out on the lake really early in the morning with our gear. Catch fish and talk about guy stuff. It’s great fun.

ANNE – (Rolls eyes) What ever floats your boat. After all it is important that your boat floats. (PETER & DORA groan)

DORA – Come on. You also get to do all kinds of cool stuff at camp: canoeing, hiking, crafts, and swimming.

PETER – Those are all okay, but I prefer fishing. Besides my uncle has this great big boat that goes really fast. We will get fresh worms from the bait seller and stick them on the hook…

DORA – (to ANNE) That I just don’t understand. How he could like anything better than camp. (to PETER) Don’t you want to go swimming every day and hiking to the top of…

ANNE – (asks PETER) Have you been praying about it?

PETER – How is that going to help? Is God just going to appear and say (in deep voice) “Go Fishing”?

ANNE – No, that isn’t how He usually speaks to us. We are supposed to pray and read His Word and He will guide us that way.

PETER – I don’t get the connection.

DORA – Oh I get it. He takes the Bible like this (takes a Bible) and closing his eyes, opens it, and sticks his finger on the page. What ever it says is the answer. (opens eyes) “a child could write them down.” (Isaiah 10:19b)

PETER – That doesn’t sound helpful.

DORA – That is because I did it, not you.

ANNE – That’s not how it works. You have to read the Bible everyday.

PETER – Everyday!

ANNE – If you had been reading your Bible, you would know which thing God would prefer you to do. For instance, I Corinthians 10:31 says that we are to do everything to glorify Him. Which do you think would glorify Him most: camp or fishing?

PETER – (thinks for a moment) I guess camp would probably be what He would choose. They have prayer and Bible study every day.

DORA – You mean it is that easy?

ANNE – Not always, but if we have a daily diet of God’s Word and prayer, the answers should be obvious in most situations. In the difficult spots, there are always friends and adults who might know more about some area than you do.

DORA – Like this time?

ANNE – Yup.

PETER – So, I should go to camp. (Not looking thrilled and then looks better) Maybe I can ask my uncle if we can go another week.

ANNE – Sounds like a good idea. Want to go over to my house? I have a new game I would like to show you.

DORA – Sure.

PETER – Sounds good.

(All three exit talking)
