That’s not fair!

How many times do we hear, think, or catch ourselves saying: “That’s not fair”?!

A less-productive employee gets a promotion. That’s not fair!
Someone gets a better deal on the same item you purchased. That’s not fair!
Someone gets a better test score, but didn’t even study. That’s not fair!
You get ill on a vacation trip while the rest of your friends don’t. That’s not fair!

And the list can go on and on! Although you may think you are saying this phrase to yourself or simply sharing with someone else – in reality – this phrase speaks against God!

You should be proud… or should you?

“You should be proud.” We hear this phrase a lot. But should we really be proud and have pride? Do we realize how serious it is to have pride in our hearts? Pride isn’t a light matter and shouldn’t be taken lightly! In James chapter 4, verse 6, we see that God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Scriptures show us that this world is composed of “the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life”, which “is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:16

Submit to the righteousness of God!

For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Romans…

Man does not know his time…

Time is an interesting thing, phenomenon – you can’t touch it, grab it, stop it, slow it down, increase it, or speed it up. Every person is driven by time. We are constantly looking at the time, checking what time it is, either you have to be somewhere, do something, etc.

But what exactly is time? We know that God is outside of time. That time is an earthly phenomenon, for people, for us. When a person is born into this world, when he begins to breathe – time begins to exist for him! His time begins to “tick”, similar to how his heart begins to “beat.” You can almost picture people being walking clocks. And only God knows the “beginning” of a person’s time and the “end” of it.

Time is precious, time is short. We hear this phrase a lot – but do we truly believe it, understand it, and even more so, do we truly live this way?

Day Dreaming

Illusions - they are all around us, on television, on social media, in photography, etc. But it is easier to see the illusions around us rather than the illusions in us. Are you living by an illusion? Are you day dreaming? The first…

Be a wise builder!

Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will…

Does your faith work?

It is interesting how in James chapter 2 it is written that faith, without works, is dead. This shows that it is possible to have faith, but if the faith doesn’t have works (if the faith doesn’t work!), this faith is in vain, it is dead! Such serious words! So what kind of works should my faith have? If you are a serious believer, it is important to ask yourself – does my faith work? Does my faith give me eternal life?

What are you driven by?

Faith. We hear this word a lot. In fact, we not only hear it, whether we acknowledge this or not, we actually Live by it. When you wake up in the morning, you are driven by faith. When you go to bed at night, you are driven by faith. When you go to work, you are driven by faith, and when you get in your car and drive, you are also driven by faith.

Faith is what keeps you going, faith is what causes your actions, and faith is also what causes your inner thoughts. But what is exactly is faith? I think sometimes we make it out to be a complex idea, or perhaps something a bit cloudy, nebulous, unexplainable. But in reality, faith is quite simple.

Complaining

And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and His anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp...…
