Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 14:1 Holy Bible, New King James Version
Are you a slave?
We are constantly bombarded on TV , the radio , in magazines and in society that we are nothing if we do not have the latest toys and gadgets. Have we not all seen the long line up where folks sometimes camp out to get the latest mobile phone? What is wrong with the old one ? Well , you will not fit in with the “ in crowd “ if you do not have it..
What is the root of it all ?
These are of course very expensive which most people cannot afford. Do not worry as the dealer will give you easy credit in easy payments. The problem is that you end up making so may of these : easy payments “ that you cannot pay your bills or put food on the table.
I have seen people in soup kitchens because they cannot afford food. They cannot afford food because they just bought this expensive new toy or got a new tattoo.
After the glow of the new toy wheres off the need another toy fix do they go out and buy more stuff they do not need nor can afford. They are as bad as drug addicts. Most are quite unhappy and downright miserable.
That which they love has made them into a slave.
On the other hand there are the wise ones that relish their relationship with Jehovah. They are filled with love and the only way to become richer in love is to share it.
The only way to share it is to be blessed by Jehovah with spiritual gifts which they share with others. We are constantly requesting and thanking our Beloved when we share these in abundance with us.
The world looks at us as if we are crazy but we know who the real crazy one are don’t we?
Which do you desire ?
The so called pleasure of the world which enslaves you , leaves you unsatisfied and empty and makes you want more like a junkie or the spiritual gifts that fill our every core with amazing Heavenly love and leaves you feeling euphoric .
Prayer: Praise You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most amazing gift of Your Heavenly love and the spiritual gifts to share them with the lost , empty souls that are enslaved in the material world. May You bless us with unlimited opportunities to share them so as to bless others with coming into the only satisfying life there every can be. I exalt You in the name of He who we attempt to emulate His love Jesus Christ . Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
