Are You a Fool?

GUARD YOUR INPUT

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 New International Version

Are you very beautiful?

Do you prance around like a prima donna proud of your beauty?

Was your beauty not a gift from Jehovah?

Do you thank Him for that?

Do you use that talent to give glory to Him instead of giving glory to yourself?                             .

Is that not playing the part of the fool?

Can you blame Him if He takes your beauty from you?

Do you have talent to paint, write or sing?

Do you stand there basking in the limelight instead of giving glory to God and using your God giving talent to serve Him?

Is that not playing the fool?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) do not allow me to become arrogant and ungrateful for the gifts You have so graciously blessed me with.

Please provide me with the opportunities to use these gifts to bring glory to You.

I humbly request this in the name of He who used His gifts to bring glory to You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Prevents It Flying to God.

SATANS TRAP

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Matthew 19:21-22 New King James Version

“The love of worldly possessions is a sort of birdlime (trap), which entangles the soul and prevents it flying to God.” Augustine

In most of the world today most people are slaves.

They foolishly fall for the trap of materialistic pleasures such as a new house (which in my opinion is nothing more than a money pit). Then they are slaves to a mortage and constant upkeep costs. Indeed how many houses are overpriced because of rich immigrants coming in and buying everything up and we cannot afford a house anyway.

They are shallow enough to purchase products that promise they will be physically beautiful while neglecting their spiritual beauty. If have met many that their physical appearances are ugly yet they are the most beautiful souls I have had the privilege to meet. They go out and buy products that run up their credit cards and clothing that is overpriced and they go in debt. Meanwhile those outfits they “Had to have” are sitting in their closets collecting dust. They are slaves to fashion.

I think it is shameful when someone owns a house and they have to rent to storage place because they have too much stuff.

They think buying a certain car will make them happy and cool. I always laugh and ask them if that means they are dorks when they are not in their cars.

It is an empty happiness those whose happiness is found in worldly pleasures.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai ( God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for all the amazing blessings You abundantly shower upon this child of Yours every day. I exalt You in the name of He who always provides for His cherished sheep Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
