    Honesty truly is the best policy. And honestly, Bob is not a very good pickleball player. (And what exactly is pickleball? Can you squeeze it on a hotdog?) On the other hand, Bob is really good about being honest, which we learn after he and his brother return a lost wallet.

    In this podcast Bob explains the power of logical reasoning. He just learned about it at school and has lots of great, err, good examples that he thought up.

    Sharing your faith can be scary. But the Bible tells us in 1 Peter 3:15 to: “Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you about the hope you have. Be ready to give the reason for it. But do it gently and with respect.” Bob talks about ways he tells others about Jesus, including a story about winning a radio contest.

    It’s not good to take things for granite. After all, it’s a really hard rock and it might actually be quartz, dolostone or basalt.

All of this adds up to a podcast filled with tips about helping others and using our time for God’s glory. Bob and Jesse also give encouragement to Daniel—a podcast listener who gave up following God because it was too hard.

    The Official Average Boy Podcast #21 on God’s Love

    The Official Average Boy Podcast #21 on God’s Love

    Bob’s class just celebrated Valentine’s Day, and Bob wonders why all those candy hearts have the same saying on them—“No way!” (There should be other sayings too, right?!?) Relationships and friendships can be hard, because sometimes people’s feelings change. But God’s love always stays the same. He loves us unconditionally, and we should try to follow His example. This podcast also reveals which pet Bob likes best: Dogs or Cats?
