“….I have trouble with people telling me what to do…”

RESISTANCE:  I’ve always had a bit of resistance in my blood.  The bottom line is….I just have trouble with people telling me what to do.  I remember as a 9th grader, the teacher told me that because I thought that I was so smart, that I ought to start my own school.  I’m still like that, even today, and I’m sorry to admit…I’m not a good example…I know.  In business, I faired better; but only because I assumed management roles early in my career.  The facts are; no matter how high you are in your career; someone is higher than you; and even if you own the company, then God provides either your wife, the lender; or both…to keep you straight.  Then, there are outside elements that control us, such as, government codes, government officials, lenders; and power brokers.  We have to pay the piper.  Then, the most important, is spirituality: The Big Boss, the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator, is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  In Exodus 20:3, it says:  “Thou shall have no other gods before me.”  There is no negotiation, no variance, and no acceptance, and if it persists…then no forgiveness.  Remember, too, Mark 12:17 – Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at him.…Blessings.. .cjlb.…9/9/13
