I or call 601-810-2476. A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor of Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "But Lord, what about this man?" Jesus said to him, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me." John 21:21-22 (NKJV). In this short discourse between Jesus and Peter we find what seems to be a simple question from Peter but in truth it represents one of the great failures of mankind, the tendency to compare ourselves to oth- ers. This can only produce one of two outcomes, nei- ther of which are Godly attributes, pride and self righteousness, because we seem to measure as being better in our own eyes, or shame at believing that we are less than others. Jesus' answer to Peter is timeless advice to all believ- ers, "You follow Me." Noth- ing we can do, say, or think is as important as follow- ing Jesus. To follow Him means that our eyes are on Him and not on those around us and their ac- complishments or failures, our thoughts are focused on our unique relationship with Jesus. Unique because we are all different, even though we may look alike and act very similarly and even possess some of the same qualities and gifts, our personalities are differ- ent enough to make us each a one of a kind creation. It is this uniqueness that God uses to accomplish His purpose in us. When we try to be like everyone else we hinder His work in our lives. I can't be you and you can't be me, we must strive to be the best that we can and not try to be like everyone else. When we are comparing ourselves to others we have taken our eyes off of Jesus and begun to focus on ourselves, not a good plan if following Him is the goal. We may substitute "Church" for man to discov- , er Godly advice for church- es as well as for communi- ties or for any other orga- nization of which we may be a part. God knows our limitations, it is up to us to allow Him to use us to the fullest of our abilities. The HARDWOOD LOGS FOR SALE? McComb Farmer's Mar- ket: Downtown McComb Parking Garage.

IN BUSINESS SINCE 1952 II I II I Centreville Academy News CA 3rd and 5th Grade Students Learn About CPR. Students at Centreville Academy have been learn- ing about lifesaving skills thanks to a generous do- nation by the Mississippi Healthcare Alliance (MHA). MHA has donated funds to train students in the life- saving skills of CPR and AED use across the state of Mississippi. Through this grant, every private school in the state of Mississippi has an opportunity to re- ceive one CPR in Schools Training KitTM during the 2017-2018 school year. This CPR in School tool is an innovative school-based program aimed to teach students, faculty and staff in CPR. The easy to use kit contains everything needed to train 10 students at once including a training DVD, portable manikins, face shields, knee pads, etc. De- veloped by the AHA, the au- thority in resuscitation sci- ence and the leader in CPR programs, this kit incorpo- rates the very latest in AHA research. By participating in the CPR in Schools proj- ect, schools will join AHA's mission to increase by- stander CPR training and create the next generation of lifesavers. Participating schools receive support and guidance from AHA staff to implement the program. Pictured with the CPR kit are the 3rd and 5th grade classes. Visitors spent $6.343 bil- eclipsed FY 2016.
