Do Not Make People Eat Your Grass


One afternoon, a selfish man was riding in the back of his limousine when he saw two pathetic-looking men by the side of the road, eating grass. He ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate. He asked the men, "Why are you eating grass?" "We don't have any money for food," the first man replied. "Then you must come with me to my house," insisted the selfish man. "But, sir, I got a wife and three kids here," said the man. 
"Bring them along!" replied the selfish man. The second man exclaimed, "I got a wife and six kids!"  "Bring them as well!", the selfish man proclaimed as he headed back to his limo. They all climbed into the car, and once underway, one of the men expresses, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."  The selfish man replied, "It is no problem, I am happy to do it. You'll love my place. The grass is almost a foot tall."

The Bible Says . . .

(2 Timothy 3:2-4)  2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.

It is no surprise that our world is in a mess.  This happens when people live their lives selfishly, and are more interested in what they can get than what they can contribute.  Take a moment to reflect and see if there are selfish ways in your life that are demeaning the value of those around you or at the very least restricting your intimacy with God.  

Remember . . .

(Romans 12:21) Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.

Confession, Reflection and The Lord's Supper

Yesterday, our church observed the ordinance of the Lord''s Supper or Communion as some call it.  Our church is blessed to have a committee that prepares this for us on every fifth Sunday.  This practice is designed to take us back in our hearts and minds to that dreadful night where Jesus sat at a table with His disciples to prepare them for His pending crucifixion .   The purpose of the Lord's Supper is not for us to go through the motions, but to remember all that Christ did for us.  His body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  Communion is a time to reflect, appreciate and give honor to Jesus for what He endured for us. This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
