Personal Choices Are Primary In Determining Our Future

This blog is sent out to a large mailing list and is on Facebook and Twitter, not just to you.

Common Sense Commentary: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Gal. 6:7. 

This is one of the most important lessons of life. When you come to realize this and let it realign your thinking and change your way of living so that you sow good seed in all that you do, your life will not only please God but benefit you in this life and the next. My desire with this blog is to improve myself, and inform and motivate you, with scriptural truths, to a better way of living by following our Lord's teachings.

I was just searching my mind for a new application for God's  rule of sowing and reaping, and found it... A retired, envious "Liberal" on welfare, medicaid, SSI, and food-stamps asked his fellow, retired house painter, a Conservative, how much money he had stored up. The Conservative answered, "What I have stored up is lifetime emergency medical care for my wife and me, a modest comfortable home, nutritious food, trips to visit our children, a weekly tithe, and enough to help others in a crisis." "Well, Old Money Bags," mocked the Democrat, "how much real money is that?" "The same amount you earned and spent on luxury cars, boats, expensive vacations, entertainment, movies, lawn care, eating out, beer, whisky and cigarettes... Any more questions?" (This comparative illustration just came to mind. It is not a true story. It is, however, true, at its core, in the attitudes and actions of literally millions of real life cases. There are. of course, exceptions)  As I see it after 86 years of observation .... RB

Jesus told of a young man, in Luke 15:13, who "...Wasted his substance with riotous living" and awoke one day to find himself penniless, destitute and in need of charity to survive. Is that you?

Wise King Solomon compared a lazy, negligent man to a great waster... "He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster." Prov.18:9.  Are you either of those?

The day we stop taking up the slack, growing mentally and spiritually, and improving our way of thinking, is the day we reach the zenith of our lives and start down to the end of it.

It's also said: "The truth saves"

Ephesians 4:25 "Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another".
