Thank God I do!


Do you remember life before the internet?

I graduated from high school in 1979, so I remember much of my life without the Internet. Life was so much easier without all of the drama that comes with the social media that everyone seems to cling to today.

Granted, I actually had to use an encyclopedia and the library in order to do a research paper but I did it. Because I didn’t have a choice! Before the computer came along, we had to write these papers by hand. We also had to learn to type on a typewriter. Something that most people today have no experience with.

Yes, life was different before the Internet but we had nothing to fall back on that was easier. Enjoy what you have today but don’t use it to put others down.

Comfort


What does “having it all” mean to you? Is it attainable?

Actually, it means NOT having it all as far as the world is concerned. Is it possible? Yes! Just determine what you really NEED and take away those things that don’t fit that view. The world may not like your version of “having it all” but if it brings you joy, that’s their problem.

Punishment for sin


In today’s society, people would rather not have any consequences for their sinful actions regardless of the “size” of their sin. Whether it was stealing a paper clip from work or murdering someone. A sin is a sin in the eyes of God regardless of the weight of it in our eyes. The smallest sin, such as the paper clip, could go unnoticed by your job or anyone who works there. But, when you consider the Ten Commandments, even in the minutest detail, all of us have sinned and we continue to do so in one way or another every day.

We feel slighted by someone and we wish or just think that bad things should happen to them. Isn’t that a sin? Every day on the highway, many of us think things about other drivers that are really sins if we compare our thoughts to the Ten Commandments. Thoughts and words, spoken or not, have a way of becoming sinful actions if they are acted on. If you haven’t given your heart to Jesus and asked Him to come in and change your heart from the inside out, I am asking you to consider it…please?

Not one of us knows whether we will wake up tomorrow or not. If you do, thank God for another day to seek Him out to become your Savior, after all, it was God Who gave you today and may give you tomorrow as His gift to you. Please don’t waste your life following the crowd and the rest of the world. Give your heart to Jesus and follow Him so your eternity won’t be an eternity of punishment for a decision that you made or chose not to make.
