“…negative results have negative value…”

What are we contributing to our career, our family life, and our spiritual walk? And, more importantly… what are the results of that contribution? Remember this: An action can only have value if the result is “positive.” Negative results have negative value. If we are hired by our company to provide a “certain skill,” we are making a promise, of sorts, to fulfill that skill as agreed, and failing to produce that skill, places our integrity in question. Likewise, when we make commitments to our marriage partner to provide for our family, and fail to do that (extenuating circumstances an exception), then we throw our commitment into question. When we promise God that we will obey Him, to keep the faith, to observe the Sabbath, to Love our neighbor… and we fail to keep our promise, then we leave Him little choice. He will step back and let us falter, to fail, to learn, to experience life without Him. God is PATIENCE…He will wait us out. He is a Loving God, and we are His children, that He made in His own Image. Matthew 7:24-27 – “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” …Blessings… cjlb…4/24/14
