Which Book Are You Showing?

the devious reward

 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. Proverbs 13:7, New International Version

It is said that in China there are three sets of books. One set you show the tax man at tax time that shows you are poor.

One set you show people who want to invest in your company that says you are rich. In reality they are no where near that wealthy.

Next they have a set of book that states that they are one step from bankruptcy. Again it i a lie. They are doing okay but do not want to pay the taxes. 

How many times do we see rich people who claim to be poor and bankrupt to cheat investors out of money?

In reality they have tons of money stashed off shore and life like kings while laughing at the suckers they fooled.

At the opposite end of the scale, how many times do wee see poor people pretending to be rich (another phrase may be “Keeping up with the Jones’” Just out of curiosity, who are these Jones’ anyway? I have never met them, have you?) They strut around like they are so haughty and pretend to be wealthy but in reality they are in debt up to their eyeballs playing this stupid game.

It is not the fact that a person has riches that keeps them from heaven, but the fact that riches have them. Dr. Caird

Then lastly there is the real set of books which states how much the man or woman is really worth. That one they try to hide.

My motto is “who are you that I have to impress you?

This is me, if you like me let’s be friends, if you don’t like me let’s try to get along in spite of our differences.”

Now  we all want and need attention sometimes, but let’s be wise, not stupid.

If you pretend to be something you are not, when the truth is discovered you will be the laughing stock and will be humiliated.

On the other side of the coin is Jesus. He says: “Come as you are, warts and all. I will love you.”

Speaking from experience I can assure you that no earthly relationship can even begin to compare to the exhilarating and awesome relationship Jesus has to offer and will give to any and all who accept Him.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with the wisdom and integrity to live the life of truth. You, Jehovah and the Holy Spirit are the only ones I desire to impress.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It was The.

 Which of the two did the will of the father?” The chief priests and elders replied, “The first one.” Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you that the tax collectors and the prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you. “ Matthew 21:31 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The biggest sinners make the best saints. It is because we know how filthy we were before Christ came to wash us clean and forgive us of our sins that we worship and adore Him. We know what we were, we know what He had done to rescue us and we know what He is making us into that causes us to joyfully that we worship and adore Him.

Those who have their noses up in the air being haughty do not have this privilege because they think they are so good and so much better than others that they do not require a Savior. Boy are they in for a surprise on Judgment Day.

In Jesus’ case, we have the story of the holiest man who ever lived, and yet it was the prostitutes and thieves who adored Him, and the religious who hated His guts.” — Rebecca Manley Pippert

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with being sanctified unto my Beloved Father by Your Holy blood. I praise You in Your most delightful name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

You Are Not to be Haughty

SINFUL DESIRE

Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.1 Timothy 6:17 New King James Version

To be haughty means to be snobs.

Now we need not be wealthy to be haughty.

How do you behave towards those on low income?

Just because they are working at a minimum wage job and you are handsomely paid does not give you the right to look down on them. Indeed you are to use your wealth to help those who are needy, that does not mean you are to blindly give. Let those who want to eat work. That is what it says in the Bible and I agree.

You are not to trust in your lofty situation either. It can be taken from you in the blink of an eye and soon you will be sitting next to the “bum” you were looking down at in the soup kitchen.

I have experienced both sides of the coin. It was a difficult process which took many years but the best thing I have learned is to trust in Jehovah. As long as we are doing His will with our lives, He will always take care of us. I speak from personal experience.

The foolish trust in their bank accounts while the wise trust in Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God my Father) for so generously taking care of Your adoring child. Thank you for teaching me not to be haughty or to trust in foolish material wealth. Rather, You have blessed me to understand and believe that You, my loving Father, will always take good care of me. I exalt You in the name of He who You always took care of as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ Amen.

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

How to Be Lonely.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought. Romans 12:3 New International Version

When you are haughty (proud) and place yourself above others your reward will be a very lonely life. After all, no one will be good enough to meet your high standards.

When you are in love with yourself, you will have no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

The higher your horse, the harder your fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green

So, you think you are so beautiful but then have a car accident. Where is your haughtiness then?

You laugh and make fun of the homeless on the street but lose your job and have to have a meal with them in a soup kitchen. Where is your haughtiness then?

Be careful.

God always has a way to humble the proud. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“In God you come up against something which is in every respect immeasurably superior to yourself. As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) consecrate me to be gracious and humble like Your exalted son Jesus Christ my great mentor. In His glorious name I do pray. Amen.

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