Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
