Often times, we just need a “little prodding.” Consider me, then, as your own personal “prodder;” or the bearer of “good-tidings.” My writing, also, serves as a REMINDER to MY-SELF. I’m no different that you…. I need help too. I need to be reminded, and prodded. I, too, am on a “spiritual journey.” There’s not a single word that you will ever find on this website that has not be said by someone, at some time, in some other setting. I am NOT ORIGINAL. Everything I write is “plagiarized” in some form or another; from some other source, or some other person, who is smarter and better equipped, than me. In fact, everything I write about is “somewhere in the Bible.” All I do…is…dig it out, and re-introduce you to something that you have most likely been told before, have read about, or found in a seminar…somewhere…sometime. I’m just REMINDING you.
For now…. I serve as an “instrument of peace,” to prod you (and me) along. Granted…. God is blessing me with the “message.” As discussed many times before on this website; I’ve gotten my instructions from Jesus Christ Himself…. As shown in Matthew 28:18-29 – And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” This passage makes me “street-legal.”
I get my authority from Jesus Christ…. Just the “same” as you do. I’m not in this assignment alone…. You are there with me. I can talk and write until I’m blue in the face, and it makes not a particle bit of difference… unless, or until…. You read it. Then, you MUST act upon it… as well. Talk is very cheap. The “talker is going to be poor” and the hard-worker is going get rewards. Proverbs 14:23 – “All hard work pays off. But if all you do is talk, you will be poor.” Remember this, too…. YOU are in CONTROL. You don’t have to listen to me; you don’t have to read…. You can… just DELETE. That’s your option… your CHOICE. But, my friends, as long as the “indicators” tell me that you are listening, and reading, and commenting ….then, by darn, I’m going to “keep-on-keeping-on.”
As of today, I have enough “telling evidence,” or indicators, that tell me that this project…BrOOKS-of-WISDOM is a worthwhile endeavor; both on my part and yours. Romans 12:2 – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. As we start the New Year – 2015, I ask that you continue to follow me, continue to read, and to listen. I also ask that you share anything that you feel might be helpful to others, by passing on to them my website information, or my LinkedIn Profile. Thank you for your support, your kindness, and your occasional dialogue. God Bless us ALL!
