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

Until Our Hearts Are. When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].” Psalm 27:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Can you walk up to a stranger you no nothing about and start lavishing praise upon them?

Of course not.

So how can you sing praises to an unknown God?

That is why I believe all these concerts with folks waving their hands in the air and singing praise to Jesus in Contemporary Christian Music concerts is a shame. Ask those on stage on in the audience how much of a relationship they have with Christ and most will give you a blank look.

The longer I have been in a loving relationship with Jehovah and the more I get to know Him the deeper the love, admiration and respect for Him. It is with great sincerity and admiration that I worship Him in my daily life, in my daily prayers and in my daily songs unto Him. This causes great songs of love , praise and worship to be sung unto my Heavenly Beloved.

“God is not moved or impressed with our worship until our hearts are moved and impressed by Him.” Kelly Sparks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for generously sharing Your love with me. In return with a heart full of gratitude, wonder, awe and respect my love for You rules supreme in my heart.

I extol Thee in the name of He whose love for me led Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Who Are You Trying To Impress?

WAIT UPON GOD

 

Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites. Mark 12:42 New King James Version      

                                                                                                                        

In Jesus’ day they had a place to put your offerings for the temple that looked like a trumpet. It was built out of tin, so that when your offering was put in it made a sound. Each type of money was a different weight so that one worth a lot of money had a lot of weight to it while one that was of little value was small and little weight. Therefore when the rich put in the heavy coins it made a lot of sound and made them look important.                                                                                                 

So what Jesus is saying is do not give to any cause just to look good to others. You may look good to others but Jehovah is not impressed if you are doing it for your ego. On the other hand any act done for Christ, no matter how small it looks to others impresses Jesus.    

                                                                                                  

So the question is: who are you trying to impress?                                                        

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please grant me the grace to be an grateful child that desires to impress You with me worship and dedication to You.  I beseech You in the name of he who dedicated His entire earthly life to being Your holy obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                              

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