FREELOADING VS RESPONSIBILITY

There seems to be something about human nature in that many of us want as much as we can get for as little effort as possible. However, we only truly appreciate that which we work for. The reality of life is that there are no free lunches.
We can pretty much do what we want with our life and accomplish what we desire providing we are willing to adequately prepare ourselves for what we want to do and work hard enough to achieve it. As Solomon put it, “The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.”

It is hard work and commitment that brings rewards and helps supply basic needs. Hard work is never wasted but laziness can ruin you and make you poor. Lazy people continuously make excuses and should be encouraged to work. They should not be allowed to be freeloaders.

Responsible people admit their wrongs, are faithful about their decisions and know their abilities and limitations. They take responsibility for their own actions.
Set your mind and strive to become a responsible hard working person who diligently does all that is worthy, honorable, just and fair knowing that you will be rewarded according to what you put into what you do.

Question…Do you have a wishbone or a backbone?

NOTHING IN LIFE IS TO BE FEARED

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. When you dare to face the things that scare you; you open the door to freedom.
Most of your obstacles will melt away if instead of cowering before them or procrastinating about dealing with them you make up your mind to walk boldly through them.
Don’t be afraid to take the step you need to take to make positive changes in your life.
To fight fear you must act.
Waiting, putting off, or postponing only increases fear. If you understood enough, you would never be afraid.

SPIRITUAL FREEDOM

One weight we should not want to carry is the weight of forgiveness.

It is the attitude of the heart that abides outside the law of love. To walk in forgiveness is to walk in great spiritual freedom. Your heart is light when it does not carry a grudge, bitterness, or resentment. To forgive does not mean that you agree with the offence that someone has committed, or that you support it in anyway.

To forgive means that you choose to release the judgment you are carrying toward someone, even though that person did something that was unkind or unfair. The choice to forgive is not based on fairness or justice, but on mercy and grace. Mercy triumphs over judgment when you chose to forgive.

BLISSFUL IGNORANCE...

Honor Is no more associated with fools than snow with summer or rain with harvest. Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are. A proverb in the mouth of a fool is as useless as a paralyzed leg or like a thorny branch brandished by a drunk.
An employer who hires a fool or a bystander is like an archer who shoots at random. There is more hope for fools than for people who think they are wise.
Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. A quarrelsome person starts fights as easily as hot embers light charcoal or fire lights wood.
Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.
Smooth words may hide a wicked heart, just as a pretty glaze covers a clay pot. People may cover their hatred with pleasant words, but they are deceiving you. A lying tongued hates its victims, and flattering words cause ruin. They pretend to be kind, but don’t believe them. Their hearts are full of many evils. While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, their wrongdoing will be exposed in public.
If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.
What you put onto others will come back to you sevenfold. Be to people what you would like for them to be to you. Think before you speak and always give thought to what you do and why you do it.

ACCORDING TO ONE'S ABILITY...

“There is a story of a 33-year-old truck driver by the name of Larry Walters who was sitting in his lawn chair in his backyard one day wishing he could fly. For as long as he could remember he had wanted to fly but he had never had the time, money, or the opportunity to be a pilot. Hang gliding was out because there was no good place for gliding near his home. So he spent a lot of summer afternoons sitting in his backyard in his ordinary old aluminum chair—the kind with the webbing and the rivets, the kind most of us have.

“One day Larry hooked 45 helium-filled surplus weather balloons to his chair, put a CB radio in his lap, tied a paper bag full of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to his leg, and slung a BB-gun over his shoulder to pop the balloons when he wanted to come down. He lifted off in his lawn chair expecting to climb a couple of hundred feet over his neighborhood. Instead he shot up 11,000 feet right through the approach corridor to the Los Angeles International Airport. When asked by the press why he did it, Larry answered: ‘Well, you can’t just sit there.’ When asked if he was scared, he answered, ‘Yes … wonderfully so.'”

Oops! Surprise! Surprise! Admittedly, Larry had no idea what he was getting himself into. Sure, he would have been wise to get some practical advice from the folk who use weather balloons. Crazy? Yes, but at least he had the courage to give what he wanted to do a try. I’m not suggesting that we do anything crazy, but at least let’s do something worthwhile with our lives.

“Do you believe there is a purpose for your life?”………………………..”May I ask what it is?”
In a sense many have no idea what it is…they just sit there and do nothing about it. As the old adage puts it, “Better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all.”

Each and every person is required to give/do/work “each according to his/her ability.” In other words, whatever abilities we have we need to put them to the best possible use doing good works here on earth. The way we do this is by helping others according to their need—according to our ability to help.

Choose today to get with your program and do not sit around waiting for some kind of a ‘special’ call, but put to use your God-given abilities in your work by being the best you can be and doing the best you can do.

TALK IS CHEAP...

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” A man bought a parrot at an auction after some heavy bidding. “I hope this bird talks,” he told the auctioneer. “Talk?” the auctioneer replied, “Who do you think has been bidding against you for the past ten minutes?”
Sad to say we seem to be living in a day when a person’s word has less and less value. Once upon a time a man’s word was his bond. Not any more I’m afraid. For far too many their word doesn’t mean a thing. We’ve become pretty adept at parroting what we think people want to hear.
I remember one of my college professors teaching us that a person’s character (among other things) could be measured by what value he or she puts on his/her word. People who don’t keep their word have a character issue and cannot be trusted.
Fortunately, however, of one thing we can be certain, the one who keeps His word always keeps His promises. We all need to do the same! For after all, it’s what we do, not what we say, that says the most of all.

Be a man/woman of your word so you can always be trusted to say what you mean, mean what you say, and do what you say you will do.
