When money is our objective, we must live in
fear of losing it, which makes us paranoid and
suspicious. When fame is our aim, we become
competitive lest others upstage us, which makes us
envious. When power and influence drive us, we
become self-serving and strong-willed, which makes
us arrogant….All these pursuits fly away and mean
nothing in the face of contentment…joy…and LOVE.
Only Christ can satisfy, whether we have or don’t have,
whether we are known or unknown, whether we live or die.
Follow after Christ in this you’ll reap true riches which satisfy.

When any one of us makes a wrong turning in our lives
through arrogance or lack of trust or impatience or fear…
GOD will show us a way out. Decisions can take you out
of GOD’s will but never out of HIS reach. God always
knows were we are and how to get us back on HIS path.
Read: II Timothy 2:13
Most people wish to serve GOD but only in an advisory capacity.
In every situation, GOD knows far more about the people and circumstances involved than we can ever know. HE alone sees the beginning from the ending.
HE alone knows how to create a Master Plan that provides for the good of all
those who serve HIM. In every situation GOD is the only one who is right
all the time. It is best to follow HIS lead.

One of the most important moments you’ll ever experience in your life
is the one when you realize the presence of GOD is greater than everything
else combined. When you believe that GOD is with you, you can’t help but
prosper. When you understand that GOD is with you, life is always doable,
rest is doable, peace is attainable and your moving forward is doable too.
When you embrace the truth that GOD is with you, you can flourish in any
circumstance. All things are doable in HIM. Not living in fear is also doable.
Read: Joshua 1:5
Never, never be too proud to say, “I’m sorry” to anyone when you’ve made a mistake. Others will see you make mistakes, but the important thing is
that you always acknowledge your errors and apologize for your behavior.
Others will then learn to apologize for their mistakes too.
No matter how difficult it is our responsibility is to always offer honest
reliable advice to our friends. This is the only way to win.
Read: James 5:16
One thing you should know is people need one another.
The presence of other people is essential–caring people,
helpful people, interesting people, friendly people, thoughtful
people. These folks take the grind out of life. About the time
we are tempted to think we can handle things all alone–boom!
We run into some obstacle and need assistance. We discover
all over again that we are not nearly as self-sufficient as we thought.
It is good to know you are needed.
Read: Proverbs 27:9
We need to remember that forgiveness always
sets us free. Free to respond to others in
love, free to enjoy closeness with God, and
free to receive HIS blessing. Today is the perfect
day to Forgive!
Read: Mark 11:25 and Luke 6:37
You can accomplish more in one hour
than one lifetime without HIM!!!

The world doesn’t spend billions of dollars for wisdom. It spends billions in search of wisdom.
Yet it is readily available to everyone who seeks its
divine source. GOD
Each of us ultimately obeys either the righteous
commandments of our Heavenly Father, or the
rule of lawlessness. We must willingly choose to
put ourselves under authority, including the authority of GOD. To fail to do so is to have “no law” other
than our own whim, an unreliable source at its best!
HE WHO HAS LEARNED TO OBEY WILL KNOW HOW TO COMMAND.
