PLANNING, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 5/29/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
“Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind.”
(Proverbs 21:5, MSG)
Be Proactive in Sharing God’s Love
Are you kind and considerate to people? Do you walk in love and prefer others above yourself? This passage tells us to be proactive! Notice the word “aim” and “seek.” You must be on the lookout to share God’s mercy and kindness and be good to all people. Moreover, we need to be kind to people even when they don’t deserve it. We need to walk in love and be courteous even when somebody is unkind to us.
The way you treat others has a great impact on how much of the blessings and favor of God you’re going to experience. Aim for kindness and seek to do good. As you do, God will reward your efforts and pour out His abundant blessing on you. As you extend God’s mercy to all those around you, you will discover the champion in you!
A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for Your goodness in my life. I choose to focus on You today no matter what my circumstances may look like. Give me Your peace as I keep my mind stayed on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
I know that this works very practically for me. I have a file on my computer for things i need to get when I drive 20 miles go to Kailua Kona. I make a copy before I leave and check off the stuff as I find it. In Proverbs 29: 17-18 wisdom says this:
So planning ahead does give us more time to do more things.. Going back to the store from where we live now costs another day at my age. Same for other important events. My wife’s birthday is today ??? forgot to say Happy Birthday this morning….OK, texting… That worked… she will be gone all day to work and Bible Study…. LOL… Should have written it down. So if you are living by the seat of your pants and forgetting to love one another, might want to start getting organized and write yourself notes. My wife want’s to go out to dinner on Sat. Evening for prime rib… Will make that happen with something special at where we are going. So love with planning and a vision makes life so much better…
God has a vision for us with a great deal of planning, do you know what it is? Do you know why the world smells like an arm pit 🙁? Do you know why God does not do something about it yesterday? Don’t miss my next effort at making GOD’s Vision clear for us. Love you much in Christ Jesus, Ken<>< O:-) www.Trinity-Aloha.org
