CHOICE: Remember one of my favorite clichés: Good and evil buy their clothing at the same store. This would mean that some, if not all… of satan’s helpers come disguised in ‘sheep’s clothing.’ At first, and generally too late… they are not recognizable as to who they are… and their evil intent. It could be a former friend or co-worker… that has given himself over to satan… and is out to recruit the weak and depressed.
The Apostle John… cautions us in… John 15:16 – “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit.” We cannot not allow ourselves the luxury of being “undecided.” We MUST choose between right and wrong …good and evil… satan and Jesus.
We are warned, again… by the Apostle John… in Revelations 3:16 – I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other. So because you are lukewarm… neither not nor gold… I am about to spit you out of My Mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…
And… in 1 Kings 18:21 – “How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.”
We all have that “special” …inner-voice that guides us along…why not pay attention to that VOICE… The Holy Spirit … who is trying HARD to guide us along the path to righteousness? The path that leads who to ‘eternal life.’
Both in management, and our Leadership… we have good… and not-so-good. We must be able to distinguish the difference. We must be able to detect the good… from evil. We must follow those chosen by God to do His work; for His Glory. The GOOD ones are identifiable by how they express their LOVE for they’re fellowman. If they don’t Love their neighbor…. Then they ‘Don’t LOVE God.’ If they are throwing ‘seeds of evil’ all about… AVOID them… at all cost.
…Blessings…as you seek God’s way…cjlb…10/3/2017
