Relational Arsonists

“Relational arsonists” are people who start drama in the church, their friendships, their family, at work, and in the community.

This week, I came across an article about a volunteer fireman in Australia who had been convicted for starting fires. I was intrigued, so I did a little digging. I found a report released in 2003 by the United States Fire Administration about firemen who start fires. The report said that “firefighter arson” is a rare but serious problem.

But why would a fireman start a fire to being with? The report said:

“Their main reason for lighting the fire is so they can appear as a hero, either by being the first to spot the flames, or by rescuing people and saving property.”

Goodness! Can you imagine? Starting a tragedy so that you can be the hero to solve the tragedy you created?

The Bible talks about people who are “relational arsonists.” These are people who start drama in the church, their friendships, their family, at work, and in the community.

“As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, so is a contentious man to kindle strife.” (Proverbs 26:21)

I know some followers of Jesus who are “relational arsonists.” That’s who “contentious” people are. Like the firefighters who start fires, they create some form of drama so that they can be the “hero.” They manufacture a problem, watch it spark up drama around them, and then present themselves as the “hero” to solve the problem.

That’s not how followers of Jesus should be. Rather than blowing up relationships in order to feed some “ego need,” our goal is to build others up.

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:29-32)

Instead of igniting fires of drama in our relationships, Jesus calls us to be a source of blessing to those around us.

Reject worthless words.

We must stop wounding our relationships with worthless words. This includes hurtful words, deceitful words, and malicious gossip. It can include sarcasm and attributing evil intention to those who do good.

Infuse grace to others.

We must build up others through our words so that people around us are swirling in Christ’s grace rather than salacious sewage of worthless words. Communication that is good is communication that gives grace to those who hear. We use words to empower people to pursue what God wants, to live in His power.

Immerse others in kindness.

Kindness is the grace God gives us to be helpful to another, to bless another, and to demonstrate love to another.

Nourish others with compassion.

The Spirit ignites compassion in our hearts for others. As followers of Christ, we deal with one another from a heart of love that feels deeply and personally what the other is going through.

Fuel your relationships with forgiveness.

When faced with hurtful words and hateful actions, we must respond to others the way God has responded to us. We must forgive.

Pray today for God to Show us how to love our neighbor well, not burn their house down with our deceitful drama.

Take Out the Trash

God gives us the opportunity by His grace to draw near to Him with a heart that is free from trash! Let’s be diligent to take out the trash today!

If you walk through our kitchen, you’ll find a container lined with a trash-bag. Obviously, that’s where we put our trash. Coffee grounds, empty bottles, egg shells, and sundry other used items go into the container.

Here’s the problem. If you leave garbage in the kitchen and never empty the container, the trash will eventually draw all sorts of unwanted things and odors in the house. That’s why we’re diligent to take out the trash on a regular basis.

It’s only a few steps outside the back deck to place the garbage from the kitchen to the bin that we take to the street, not a long walk, but it seems like such a hassle to carry the garbage from the kitchen to street-bin. The greater hassle would be to leave it and let it grow!

In our relationship with God, we have to be even more diligent to deal with the sin in our lives. Like taking out the trash, we need to remove the sin in our lives that is all too happy to accumulate in our soul.

When Jesus talked about sin, He used images that were shocking.

“If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you… if your right hand causes you to sin, cut if off and cast it from you.” (Matthew 5:28, 29)

Jesus calls us to deal ruthlessly with sin as followers of Jesus. When God’s Word calls us out on sin, then we must deal with it. We can’t be content about the status quo where our sin is concerned. We need to take out the trash immediately!

Taking out the trash of our sin must be a “right now” thing for us. It means that we confess it immediately, turn away from it persistently, and live in the grace that God provides through Jesus.

Listen to James helping us take out the trash today:

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” (James 4:7-10)

So, let’s take out the trash!

Submit to God. 

Don’t fight God about your sin. Submission to God means that we abandon all deflection about why we’ve been living in a way that does not honor Him. Acknowledge that He is right and you are wrong. Confess that what the Bible says is true, and how you’ve been living is false.

Cleanse your hands.

When we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Lament, mourn, and weep.

Repentance is turning away from sin and pursuing intimacy with God. It involves a deep sorrow, a broken heart, over our sin. We might say, “I don’t feel sorrow for my sin.” If that’s the case, then ask God to break our hearts, to make our sin distasteful to our soul. Make the commitment to mourn our sin and turn away from it.

God gives us the opportunity by His grace to draw near to Him with a heart that is free from trash! Let’s be diligent to take out the trash today!

“Your brain has an ‘ON’ switch,” grunted my worthless sponsor. “Use it!”

September 21, 2020
“Your brain has an ‘ON’ switch,” grunted my worthless sponsor. “Use it!”

Okay, maybe he was right this one time.

I was playing the victim.

I tried to put some of the responsibility for my success unfairly on my worthless sponsor. He was having none of that. His method of response needed a bit more empathy, but no one can draw empathy from an empty well.

What possessed me to play the victim?

I forgot that our business is our responsibility, not our sponsors’. Our sponsors gave us an opportunity. The rest is up to us.

If our sponsors help us, awesome. Take advantage of it. If not, let’s not bemoan our lack of success with victim language such as, “My sponsor doesn’t help me.”

What did I ask my worthless sponsor?

I wanted to know how to meet new prospects, but insisted it had to be easy. And, rightly so, my worthless sponsor told me to stop being lazy and figure it out like an adult.

This prompted me to learn from books, audios, live company events, and my own experiences. And what happened?

If my sponsor had told me 20 different ways to meet new prospects, well, I would have made a list. But because I experienced the learning myself, I didn’t make a list. I actually felt like I could take action myself. I gained valuable experience, and I got back into action.

Looking back on this, I think, “Yeah, my worthless sponsor was a jerk.”

Robert KiyosakiRobert Kiyosaki

Editor, Rich Dad Poor Dad Daily

 

Dear reader,

What will the Fed chairman do next?

Will he be inflationary, which means printing more money, or deflationary, which means rising interest rates and tightening the flow of money? Does he save the dollar, or save the economy? Does he increase the money supply, or increase demand for the dollar?

If he prints more money, that’s good news for gold bugs like me, but bad news if you save your money.

Inflation

Just as markets go up and down, so does inflation. Since February of this year, the Federal Reserve Bank has flooded the economy with trillions of dollars to provide economic stability and liquidity. The long-term effect of all this printed money may lead to inflation, which means the U.S. dollar will go down in value.

If inflation sets in, anything of questionable value will lose value, while things of value—assets such as real estate, gold, silver, and utility stocks—may greatly increase in value.

Governments do five basic economic things:

  1. Collect taxes
  2. Print money
  3. Spend money
  4. Push problems they cannot solve forward into the future
  5. Control the economy through interest rates

During the 1990s, two reasons stock prices went so high were low inflation and low-interest rates. When inflation goes up, the government often counters it by raising interest rates. When interest rates go up, stock markets usually come down. So during periods of high inflation and high-interest rates, mutual funds generally take a beating or fail to increase in value.

Those of us old enough to remember the late 1970s may remember when inflation went through the roof, interest rates hit all-time highs, and the stock market went down.

I am not saying that such a time will come again, but I would be vigilant. If we enter a period of high inflation and high-interest rates, people counting on their pension plans and mutual funds may find themselves in serious financial trouble.

If inflation rears its ugly head, savers will be punished and debtors will be rewarded, just as in the late 1970s.

The Message That You Are About To See Is Highly Controversial. Viewer Discretion Is Advised.

Click here to see the five steps you must take.

 

Why Savers are Losers

The act of saving worked well for the World War II generation, a generation that lived in an era of inflation. In fact, for the generation that lived before 1900, there was very little inflation and also no taxes.

So saving worked even better for the parents of the World War II generation. But ever since 1950, savers have been losers simply because savings are taxed at a high rate, and inflation wipes out most of the gains. In early 2002, the interest rate paid on saving is about two percent. Many savers have been severely crippled because of this drop in interest.

For example, only a few years ago, if a person had a million dollars in cash in the bank and the bank paid them five-percent interest, the saver then received $50,000 in interest income, before taxes. But when the rate hit two percent, that same million dollars paid them $20,000 in interest income before taxes. That means, in just a few years, savers took a 40-percent cut in pay, before taxes.

The point is, advising people to save used to be good advice, and it still is good advice for the poor and the middle class. But for anyone wanting to become rich, simply saving money in an old-fashioned way is bad advice.

Deflation

Think of the global economy as a big hot-air balloon. Things were going along splendidly until August 6, 2007, when too much hot air—debt—caused a tear in the balloon. As the horrifying ripping sound spread, central banks of the world began pumping more and more hot air—debt—into the balloon in an attempt to keep it from crashing to the ground and causing a depression.

In his book A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens famously wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness.” Amazingly, things have not changed much since Dickens wrote that in 1859.

For some people, deflation makes the best of times. The cost of living would down as the prices of oil, real estate, stocks, and commodities drop and thus become more affordable. The central banks and governments of the world, hoping people, businesses, and governments will get deeper into debt by borrowing more money, are pumping trillions of dollars into the economy at interest rates near zero—virtually free money.

One Final Point About History

The Founding Fathers opposed central banks like the Federal Reserve. President George Washington experienced the pain of government-made money when he had to pay his troops with the continental, a currency that eventually went to its true value—zero. Thomas Jefferson adamantly opposed the creation of a central bank. Yet today central banks control the financial world, and we’ve granted them the power to solve our financial crisis for us, the very crisis they helped create.

Simply said, a central bank can create money out of nothing and then charge us interest on money it did not earn. That interest is paid via taxes, inflation, and, today, deflation, which results in the loss of jobs and value in our homes. The policies of the Fed aren’t abstract realities. They are powerful actions that determine your financial well being in both open and hidden ways.

Anyone who purchases a home knows that for the first years most of your mortgage payment goes to the bank to pay down interest, and that very little goes toward reducing the principal. The bank effectively receives interest payments for money it did not earn but rather created out of thin air.

Allowing banks to effectively create money out of thin air via the fractional reserve system robs us of our wealth by devaluing our dollars. Today, the central banks of the world are printing trillions of dollars, which will be paid by us via debt, taxes, and inflation.

THE MOST IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT IN TESLA’S HISTORY?

Click here to learn more

Dear Howard,

Hi, I’m Aaron Gentzler, publisher here at Tech Profits Daily.

And I have an urgent announcement about our business (and our long-time editor, Ray Blanco.)

You see, we’ve just uncovered brand new research that could send shockwaves across the tech industry…

As soon as next week Tuesday, September 22nd just minutes after 4:30pm.

That’s when Elon Musk will take the stage at the Fremont, California automotive plant and make the biggest announcement of his career at Tesla’s Battery Day Event…

An announcement that could have a MASSIVE impact on your wealth, if you know how to take advantage.

Here’s the deal…

Battery Day is when it’s expected Elon will release the details of a brand new “million-mile” battery.

The media has already confirmed it.

Yahoo reports that “Tesla is set to unveil the new million-mile battery…

And Barrons reported that Elon is “Slated to announce a number of potential game changing battery development…”

Inverse said “this could be the most important event in Tesla’s history”.

However, according to Ray…

The media is missing what could be the MOST important part of this story.

The story of how a tiny $2 battery company founded by a former Senior Tesla battery engineer already holds the key to the million-mile battery…

A technology that’s already protected by patent application #3069168.

According to Ray, if Elon Musk mentions the name of this tiny company on stage… There is no telling how high it could go.

If the stock jumps by just $2 dollars, investors could double their money in a matter of minutes.

As you can see, this situation is extremely urgent.

That’s why I’m writing to you today.

Ray has agreed to drop everything, and cover this fast-unfolding story.

And in the days leading up to Elon’s announcement, we will blow the door wide open on the full story.

Ray is compiling his research as I type. And starting tomorrow…

You’ll see the proof…

The patent…

The incredible upside in one tech “sub niche”…

And recent examples that show this type of high profile investment opportunity have already produced a ridiculous amount of cash…

To give readers like you front row access to this unfolding story…

Then…

(And you’re going to want to mark your calendar…)

Your editor, and America’s foremost tech expert will do something he’s NEVER done before…

He’s going live on Monday September 21st precisely at 4:30 p.m. EDT.

To make the boldest prediction of his career…

And SHOW live on camera the “smoking gun” details about this $2 company.

A full 24hrs before Elon Musk takes the stage at Tesla’s “Battery Day” event.

Look…

In 2020 tech has made smart investors an absolute fortune.

You simply CANNOT afford to miss this event… on the eve of Tesla’s big announcement.

Watch your inbox tomorrow for more details. Ray will tell you how he’s managed to find the incredible research for this HUGE story.

Watch your inbox tomorrow for more details. Ray will tell you how he’s managed to find the incredible research for this HUGE story.

If his prediction comes true, Ray believes that this moonshot opportunity could double your money in a matter of minutes…10X your money in the coming three months…. or even 100X your money over the coming years…

What would that kind of money do for YOU?

Think about it,

Aaron Gentzler

P.S. I’ve got a favor to ask for Ray, in the meantime…

He wants to know…

What would you do if you could make a small fortune from the tiny tech plays that no one is talking about? Or the next big thing for Tesla, Apple, Amazon or others?

For simplicity’s sake, let’s say you could double your normal return?

Or on the high side, what if you could 10X or 100X your money in the next 3-5 years?

What would you do with that extra money?

Would you finally have the money to buy the retirement house of your dreams and kick back?

Maybe pay off debt and finally get on with living the life you and your family deserve?

Would you buy a fancy new car?

Pony up the money to really make your house a kingdom here in quarantine?

Buy a vacation house so you can escape to luxury whenever you want?

Or, maybe, along with enjoying some of life’s finer things you’d also put half of that money away for safekeeping?

Whatever it is…

I want you to tell us.

The more details, the better. And don’t worry, there’s no right answer.

Your response is super important to Ray. And incredibly motivating for our mission, here. So please, let us know right away!

Brian MaherDear Howard,

THE coronavirus menaces yet.

Maybe you believe a face shield is your sword, a colossal weapon against the microscopic barbarians at your gate.

Our agents inform us you can purchase a face shield for perhaps $10.

But let us suppose you perch upon the upper rungs of America’s social ladder.

Let us further suppose you wish to be seen upon this ladder, high aloft… all beneath looking up in heart-eating envy.

Well then, we have the personal protection equipment for you…

The Price of Vanity

A Louis Vuitton face shield you can have for $961 — some $950 above standard.

IMG 1

Is this viral barrier $950 superior to the plebian plastic that shields the lower 99%?

Our men have conducted a thorough scientific inquiry — in studies singly blind, doubly blind and triply blind.

As a barrier, they conclude, Louis Vuitton’s face shield is the precise equal of the socially inferior issue.

Yet the socially inferior issue does not bear the razzle-dazzle of Louis Vuitton.

“We are all in this together,” we are told. Yet even together… apparently… some insist upon standing apart.

Vanity, Louis Vuitton is thy name.

If You Must Settle

Perhaps a $961 plastic yet golden face cover is beyond your means.

You nonetheless aspire to radiate a superior air to the lessers around you.

May we then suggest a leather Louis Vuitton face mask?

The unwashed hordes may go about in their ten cent surgical masks. But you can advertise your aristocracy for a mere $50.

IMG 2

Gucci, meantime, will sell you similar “luxury masks.”

You may have difficulty breathing while wearing one. You nonetheless wallow in luxury, in opulence.

But are masks and shields — Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Acme — effective barriers at all?

They are not, concludes physicist Denis Rancourt. This fellow is a learned master of “environmental nanoparticles.”

See The Shocking Details Here

A Maginot Line

A facial covering is — he concludes — a Maginot Line of sorts.

It is no more effective at keeping out viruses than France’s Maginot Line was at keeping out Germans.

Both are easily outflanked.

As well erect a chain link fence to keep the flies out. Rancourt:

When I looked at all the randomized controlled trials with verified outcome, meaning you actually measure whether or not the person was infected … NONE of these well-designed studies … found there was a statistically significant advantage of wearing a mask versus not wearing a mask…

What this means — and this is very important — is that if there was any significant advantage to wearing a mask to reduce this [infection] risk, then you would have detected that in at least one of these trials, [yet] there’s no sign of it.

That to me is a firm scientific conclusion: There is no evidence that masks are of any utility either preventing the aerosol particles from coming out or from going in. You’re not helping the people around you by wearing a mask, and you’re not helping yourself preventing the disease by wearing a mask.

This science is unambiguous in that such a positive effect cannot be detected.

Wearing a mask or being in an environment where masks are being worn or not worn, there’s no difference in terms of your risk of being infected by the viral respiratory disease.

There’s no reduction, period. There are no exceptions. All the studies that have been tabulated, looked at, published, I was not able to find any exceptions, if you constrain yourself to verified outcomes.

Yet we are ordered to seal our facial orifices in public venues indoors and out. All — evidently — to very little effect.

Why, Dr. Rancourt, are masks such hopeless sieves?

Aerosol Particles

We’re talking about the small size fraction of aerosols, so typically smaller than 2 micrometers… When you get down to those sizes, gravitational outtake is very inefficient and they basically stay in suspension. And, as soon as you have currents or flow of air, [the particles] are carried…

These aerosol particles that are the vector of transmission are completely suspended as part of the fluid air. They’re really part of the fluid air, so any air that gets through, [the viral particles are also] going to come through. That’s why masks don’t work…

Those fine aerosol particles will follow the fluid air. In a surgical mask, there is no way you’re blocking the fluid air…

In other words, very little of the airflow is going to be through the actual mask.

But masks block saliva. Saliva houses the virus. Is it then not sound to sport masks and don shields to keep saliva in?

No, argues Dr. Rancourt. That is because the virus is transmitted in the fluid air of which he writes — not through saliva:

The mask is only designed and intended to stop your spitballs from coming out and hitting someone… The large droplets drop to the floor immediately and are not breathed in. So, they’re not part of the transmission mechanism. You can do a scientific study that demonstrates that viruses survive a fairly long time on a surface…

That does not mean that transmission occurs through surfaces. It only means that a scientist was able to establish that a virus can survive a long time on a surface. It doesn’t tell you anything about the likely transmission mechanism of the disease. So, there are a lot of studies like this that are basically irrelevant in terms of transmission mechanism.

[Infectious respiratory diseases] are transmitted by these fine aerosol particles that are in suspension in the air. In a case like that, will a mask, will something that is preventing spitballs from coming out, protect you or protect others? And the answer is no, it makes no measurable difference.

Instead, you could collect an average of $185 every day of the year with this “boring” trade strategy Forbes magazine says is “like finding money in the street.”

Please, doctor, continue:

There are many studies that show how difficult it is to actually infect someone when you’re just trying to put something like a fluid or something you know is bearing the virus into their eye or into their nose. It’s hard to do this. That’s what the studies show.

But if you take a fine aerosol and you breathe it in deeply, that’s where the infection starts… So, by breathing in aerosols laden with these viruses, you’re going to be infected. Try to do anything else, and it’s going to be difficult [to spread infection].

In conclusion:

The most recent randomized controlled trial [published] this year basically concluded they could find no evidence that masks, hand-washing and distancing, in terms of reducing the risk of these types of diseases, were of any use. [They] didn’t help.

Thus the good Dr. Rancourt blasts the bedrock upon which public policy rests.

Yet the hocus-pocus of mask-wearing is mighty in the land. And the masked are horrified into white hot rages should you appear among them unmasked.

Can we guarantee Rancourt’s claims? We cannot. We are not a scientist.

Yet we have seen similar evidence elsewhere.

More importantly, they confirm our biases. They slant the way we lean…

And a fellow leans this way or that way in life, forever foraging for facts that fit his precious theories, forever picking cherries.

We are by nature skeptical of official policies — they are generally anchored in error, bankrupt.

These findings affirm our deep-dyed skepticism.

They soothe us. They massage our scalp… and caress our gills.

Consolation

Must we endure the futility of slipping on personal protection equipment before entering stores?

Alas, we must. Yet we are consoled by this capital fact:

It affords us the chance to display our plumage, to strut, to showboat our popinjay superiority, to be a big deal in this world.

And it only costs $961, payable to Louis Vuitton — a bargain at thrice the price.

Making their options easy.

The shortcut for decision-making that everyone loves?

“How will this end up? What happens in the future?”

We will tell them the outcomes of their decisions. They won’t have to guess. Some examples?

  • “People will pay for these vitamins one way or another. Either when they buy, or through bad health if they don’t.”
  • “People will invest their time for the extra money they need. They either invest their time by working an extra part-time job until they die, or by starting a part-time business now so they can stop working in ten years.”

Remember, we control the descriptions of the outcomes here. 😊

What happened this summer?

There are 30+ Big Al books. Which ones are the most popular?

Normally Ice Breakers and the The Four Color Personalities For MLM. But …

Not this summer.

This summer, more network marketers started planning for big jumps in their business. And to do that, we need to grow leaders. The two best-selling books during the summer were:

https://bigalbooks.com/book/leaders1/
https://bigalbooks.com/book/leaders2/

Both are available in paperback, ebook, and audio.

There are two types of people in the world.

My worthless sponsor hates both of them. 😊

Enjoy the upcoming weekend!

Noxious Odors and Sweet-Smelling Aromas

The gospel delivers. The noxious odor of our sin is eliminated eternally through Jesus! Today, let’s live in the sweet-smelling aroma of grace and life!

Have you seen the ads for the spray that “eliminates odors”? It promises us that no matter the strength of the smell, this product is stronger.

I’ve always wondered if it really does eliminate odors, so I did a little research. First, the science behind the product delivers something different from “elimination.” The chemicals in the product masks the “stinking” molecules, but they don’t eliminate them. Second, testing the effectiveness of the product, independent researchers discovered that any masking of the bad odor is temporary, not permanent.

Now, I’m thankful for the temporary relief of a noxious scent in room for sure. But the product doesn’t deliver on its promise: the spray does not “eliminate” odors.

Although the product doesn’t deliver on its promise, the gospel does! God’s love promises to eliminate the noxious offense of our sin and replace it with the beautiful aroma of His acceptance.

“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19)

Here’s the promise in plain terms. The sin of Adam pervades our souls with the scent of death in our own sin. The obedient sacrifice of Jesus offers a permanent (even eternal) removal of that scent, replacing it with the life-giving aroma of His righteousness.

When we come to Jesus as our only hope for rescue from the “stink” of our sin… When we place our trust in His death on the Cross as the payment for our guilt and the purchase of our forgiveness… When we embrace Jesus as our righteousness… then the odor of our sin – the guilt and shame and death that comes with it – is eliminated forever.

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1-4)

Through Christ’s perfect obedience to the Law in the flesh, He perfectly fulfilled the righteous requirements of God’s standard of holiness. When Christ died on the cross, all condemnation was placed upon Him. Condemnation was killed by Christ on the cross.

“No condemnation” means that we who are “in Christ” are free from the guilt of sin and from the enslaving power of sin. The stench of death in sin is gone forever from our soul.

The gospel delivers!

The noxious odor of our sin is eliminated eternally through Jesus!

Today, let’s live in the sweet-smelling aroma of grace and life!

Snakes, Fear, and Faith

We don’t have to let fear win the battle of our mind or soul. God’s promise to those who belong to Him is that the battle belongs to Him too.

The other day, my wife showed me a picture that was posted by some neighbors of a rattlesnake that was killed not far from us. I have to tell you, seeing a picture of a rattlesnake in our neighborhood changes the way I walk in my backyard. I don’t like rattlesnakes. They scare me!

What is it that scares you today? There are certainly a lot of different things that can fit that description. It may not be a snake, but fear often feels like a serpentine, slithering thing. Fear leads us to sleepless nights. Fear can cause us to isolate ourselves or push others away or do crazy things.

Jehoshaphat was king in Judah, and he led the people in the kingdom to pursue a life that was pleasing to God (2 Chron 19:4). While he was leading the nation back to God, combined armies from Moab and the Ammonites came to do battle against Judah. Jehoshaphat was afraid.

“Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.” (2 Chronicles 20:3)

In this one verse, God shows us first steps in dealing with fear: Seek the Lord. I love the language of this verse, Jehoshaphat “set himself to seek the Lord.” When fear hits, and it will, our first response should be to seek the Lord. We need to position ourselves for God to speak to us, for God to comfort us, for God to encourage us.

When fear hits, have you set yourself to seek the Lord?

Now, listen to God’s response to us when we set ourselves to seek Him.

“Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” (2 Chronicles 20:15)

We don’t have to let fear win the battle of our mind or soul. God’s promise to those who belong to Him is that the battle belongs to Him too. He is the God who loves us and is committed to us. Seeking the Lord in the face of fear sets us on a path of faith, where confidence in God and courage from God rules our minds and hearts.

Today, face your fear with faith by seeking the Lord!

100% pure Mink Oil and provides exactly what your skin needs

21 Days of Prayer ABC’s of Relationships Contact Home 1 out of 5 People Still Do This…Do You?

le Still Do This…Do You?

one out of five

According to research by Onovative, a marketing firm in Louisville, KY, what only 1 out of 5 people still do is worth our consideration for Summer Advance.  This Sunday, June 26, is our final Sunday for this emphasis.  Summer Advance is the plan for our church to fully fund our needs for the month of June and prepay additional expenses incurred with Vacation Bible School (June 27-July 1), Student Camp (July 25-29) and Children’s Camp (August 1-5). These three events provide the greatest opportunities each summer for individuals to hear and respond to the gospel.  Summer Advance allows us to recognize the value in these events and commit ahead of time to make sure the resources are available at the time when they are most needed.

So what is it that 1 out of 5 people still do?  The answer is: Carry A Checkbook. For some reading this electronic blog post, there may be some confusion.  Prior to electronic banking and the popularity of debit cards, most Americans routinely carried a wallet for cash and credit cards, and they carried a checkbook.  The fact that only 1 out of 5 people still carry checkbooks means that when people arrive at church and are presented with an opportunity to give an offering in worship, they may find themselves without cash or a checkbook.  Unless they have already set up and established online giving, they are without opportunity to give. I know that I may have good intentions to give to some cause later, but often discover that by the time I get home, I have forgotten all about my good intention.

I want to encourage you to be sure that you have considered what you will give this week to meet the need of our Summer Advance goal of $500,000.00. Many have already given, but this Sunday will be a significant time to give generously. I am pleased to announce that our church now offers TEXT TO GIVE.  Why?  Because while only 1 out of 5 people carry checkbooks, According to the Pew Research Center nearly 7 out of 10 Americans carry a smart phone with them daily. Text to Give provides a secure manner in which to give when individuals desire to do so while in worship or any other time they choose.  Text to Give provides a way to give consistent with how many people live.  While our church still receives offerings of all kinds (cash, check, stocks, gifts in kind, online giving) this provides one additional way to help people do what they sense God leading them to do in the moment. In order to use this service, you will need to set up your account online to connect your giving with your cell phone number.  To set up your account go to www.firstnorfolk.org/give and click on the Mobile Online Giving link to set up your account.  Once set up, during the offering or after an appeal to give to support a certain mission or cause, you can simply text your gift.

If you have questions or any difficulty setting up your account please contact our financial controller, Wendy Howard at whoward@firstnorfolk.org

However you do it, I want to encourage you to participate in helping children and teens come to know Jesus this summer by allowing God to use to invest in His Kingdom work this summer!  We give, not for ourselves, but for God’s glory! Let’s exceed our goal this summer!
