Be The Light

If you spend anytime looking at the night sky you can easily see that most of it is darkness.

But what do you focus on?

You focus on the stars… The light in the darkness.

Live your life so that you shine in a dark world!

God Bless

Cheerful Tithing

I am going to take some time, right now, to discuss a very controversial topic.  It has become controversial, but it really shouldn’t be.  I am going to discuss tithing, or the practice of taking ten percent of everything you make and giving it away, first, before you do anything else with your money.  I am not talking about generosity in general; I am talking about tithing in particular.  Tithing is not “generosity.”  Tithing is required.  There is an entire principle based on generosity.  For now, let’s discuss taking the first ten percent of everything you make and giving it away.  I can see those of you who know about tithing with your eyes glazing over, but stick with me now.  Those of you who haven’t heard about tithing are going to get a very important lesson.  It will have a direct impact on your future financial prosperity. 

Money And Control

Money gives you control over your life.

Or

Money has control over your life.

There is no in between.

The Storms Of Life

Many times life is calm and serene. We go about our days without much worry. These are the days without storms.

Occasionally, a small storm may roll in. It may be expected or it may surprise us. It rattles us but doesn’t cause too much trouble.

Sometimes a large storm hits. It may cause some damage but not enough to alter our life. We may have some trouble but we quickly move on.

Then there are the ferocious storms of life. There is major destruction. The landscape is forever changed. Our perspective changes. Nothing will ever be the same.

Are you prepared?

God Bless

Being Generous Without Spending a Lot Of Money

A discussion of generosity always comes back to spending money and material things.  So, I am going to discuss those things now.  It is important to note, however, that there are infinitely many ways to be generous and spread good.  We will discuss these in a minute.  “For the love of money is the root of all evil which: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”lxxii   It is what you do with money that determines how God views it. A hundred dollars that is used to feed a poor family has a different value than a hundred dollars used to feed a drug habit. Money simply makes you more of what you already were before you had the money. If, before you had an abundance of money, you were generous, then an abundance of money will make you generous in abundance. If you were greedy, before having an abundance of money, then an abundance of money will make you greedier. Money shows where your heart really is. If you want to find out what type of person you are, then take a look at where you spend your money. 

Fly

If the rope you’ve been hanging onto seems to be getting shorter on the end you can pray for more rope or have the faith to fly.

Stages of Development

It’s important to know the stages your children will grow through and how you can be there to help them and to encourage them through each of these stages.  It’s also important to examine the stages you went through growing up.  This will help to give insight into who you are today.  They do not happen at exactly the same time for everyone, but you will be able to get a rough idea as to when each stage begins and how long it will last.  The three stages we need to discuss are the:  

What Failure Is

It is important to know the difference between permanent failure and temporary failure.  Most people never make that distinction.  They allow the normal setbacks, that are designed and allowed into our lives to push us along and make us grow, to become life altering and destroying events.  They allow these things to sap their energy, and destroy their dreams.  They allow bitterness and resentment into their lives. 

Today

Start each day expecting the best!
A great attitude is essential.
Be kind, generous and flexible… a servant.

Have the tools to engage the worst!
Be prepared for the unexpected.
Have the ability to be strong, courageous and firm… a warrior.

Moderate Work 

Source: http://gph.is/2c3VTCf

We have discussed honest work, smart work and fulfilling work.  The last component of effective work is moderation. Work is a necessary part of life.  It helps to give us direction and purpose.  Just think back to a day when you had a good day at work.  It’s satisfying.  Work is good!  It’s even better when you are doing the things suggested here.  So let’s be clear about work.  It’s overworking that is the problem.  Even God rested after doing the work of creating the world and we are given instructions to not overwork.cxiv
