“…I LUST after success in my endeavor to bring…”

We, as a generation, are just PLAIN’O-LUST’FUL people.  I know that I am….and I like it that way, too.  I am also an Idol Worshiper.  Does  any of this surprise you?  Me?  The Great Leader… this and that… and Lover of all mankind…. Does it make a bit of sense?  Well here we go…I’ll splain’it for you.  I use the word LUST, in the sense, that I crave, desire, and am passionate for and about….

I LUST after success in my endeavor to bring PEACE and Happiness to all that I can influence to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.  I LUST after a new car, that will provide transportation to those in NEED; I LUST after a trip to Foreign countries to provide SERVICE to the POOR and Spiritual weak; and several closets of “new clothes,” so that I might provide clothing to the unclothed.

And, as for the Idol worshiper …I WORSHIP all the aforementioned, and also, a good book, especially the Bible.  I worship the SONGS that bring me happiness and a closer relationship with God.  I worship all the Children of broken homes and those affected with Spiritual decay.  I guess …. I’m trying to “play with your brain,” a little…and trying to bring attention to what’s going around us… as a society.

The FACT is; we don’t have to go very far to find ALL those people in need…. Only to look around the corner, up the street, even in our own Churches, and too often, in our own back-yard.  People in need are all around us. I believe that the most important thing we can provide is teaching our Children how to live by the Golden Rule; how to obey the “rules of society,” and to provide a positive environment for “spiritual learning.”  I believe, then…. All the rest will “fall into place.”

All the needs of mankind can be met if we could raise a “new generation” of Believers…of people who Loved (cared about) their neighbor as they loved (care about) themselves . We are told in Matthew 7:11-12 – “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”  

I believe, deeply in my heart, that BrOOKS-of-WISDOM, can be a CONDUIT of His LOVE, and an Instrument of His PEACE.  I LUST after the success that this website might bring to those who are in “need” of a Spiritual Up-lifting.  I WORSHIP God, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that I might be the object of His attention, however small, it might be….even a single hair.
