Mayberry Bible Study Podcast: The Loaded Goat

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:50:57

Thank you for joining me for the Mayberry Bible Study Podcast. I hope you enjoy your time with me in Mayberry and that you learn a little along the way.  Any study of God’s word can be helpful to us in growing our character, even if that study is inspired by The Andy Griffith Show.

Download the full lesson plan so you can follow along as you listen to the study. Enjoy your time with us here in Mayberry.

Lesson Introduction:

Mayberry is having an underpass put in and this is requiring some blasting out at the construction site.  Hodge brings his goat (Jimmy) into town for the day and, while running errands the goat gets loose and eats some of the dynamite.  Everyone becomes afraid of the potential for explosion Jimmy possesses.  They seek to find solutions to the quandary.  Finally they stumble upon the idea of Barney playing his French Harp and lead the goat out of town.  The mayor and Hodge hear an explosion from the construction site and think Andy and Barney were blown up leading the goat away.  They break into a eulogy not knowing the duo had returned and were listening in the other room.

Lesson Points:

  • How to handle situations when we don’t know what to do (Proverbs 3:5-6)
  • The Power of music (1 Samuel 16:23; Ephesians 5:19)
  • The Importance of a good reputation (Proverbs 20:11; 22:1)
