“Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Do you place your company “up-front” or do you use your company “as a front?”  I’ve found that there have been times that I have questioned my own intentions from time to time.  I don’t question them, so much during the pursuit of the issue, but later when I’ve reflected on the entire process.  I’ve even had other(s) question my intentions.  This is nothing new, as I’ve had my intentions questioned for many years.  It is probably, more so, because I’ve been “miss-understood.”  That said:  I should say that my intentions are miss-understood, rather than questioned.  To some, though…there’s probably not a dimes difference between the two.  It would be my desire, and my honest intent… that I place God up-front, and any other position would follow HIM.  One could use this same scenario, rather it’s your company, your boss, or a particular individual, or possibly…God; to describe their own situation.  In fact, a bit far-fetched to mention, but it illustrates my point very well is:  some men will marry, so that they might “use their wife as a FRONT, when in fact, they’re gay.  Or, you may have someone get married just so they can stay in the United States… obviously a front, rather than be deported.  Or worst yet, they might be “using God as a front”… to serve their particular purpose, rather than putting Him “up-front,” to serve God’s purpose.  There are those who feel some of our senior federal officials might be guilty of this type of behavior.  Using friends, wives, bosses, or companies as a FRONT can be defended in some cases, but to “use God” as a front….um well; that would be a dangerous thing to do.  Sure, God is the God of 2nd chances, as Jesus died on the cross for our sins; but to mock God… I believe, would be very risky; I would not want to travel that road.  “Using God” is no different as using His name in vain.   As said in Exodus 20:7 – “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” (Also, check out Matthew 7:23 “I never knew you; Depart from me…”)…Blessings… cjlb…6/20/14
