Good Morning Peeps,

“The opposite of Good Habits is Bad Habits, so let’s get rid of the bad habits first and we’ll keep using the Good Ones. Bless God!”

The Good Habits

Good Habits

Good Habits will find you always looking for the good to do for the day and good people will be attracted to you to help you manage, function, and operate all the Good you will do.  When good people say and do good things for you, we all tend to push good ideas and works off to the back burner, aside; in order  to pursue our own worldly agendas of success, power, lust, and greed. Your ego is a trap!  Humble yourself and listen to Good Habits.

The Mask

Bad Habits are camouflaged and disguised as Good Objectives to pursue and obtain and they seem normal, until you get to the end of the story to see that you have been brainwashed, tricked, or lied to.  One on one conversations with your wise parents, grandparents, teachers, and mentors will generally say the same things– sharing similar stories of Love, Hope, Charity.  The Mask makes Bad Habits look pretty, but, underneath the covering, it destroys your face and your natural beauty given to you by God.  Fake beauty is The Mask!

Success is

Success is cool, but look at all of the people who are not, simply because they were trampled upon by other greedy, lying people, pushing ahead, and undeservingly been promoted, hired, or in charge of positions of power and authority. Selfishness of lust, waste, inefficiency, and evil is to the core, hidden underneath a lot of flesh and make up, Like The Mask!  Once removed, the ugliness is quite apparent.

True Success

True Success is the culmination of your family learning and practicing self help communication operations to execute God’s Good Habits and Commandments of daily fun, play, work, and rest, in Love.  Everyone can and should enjoy success.  One person helping another person is a good start, Peeps.
Note– some people you can’t help, since their Bad Habits have consumed them and God says to leave them alone to their own evil devices.  Let the truth, speak through your loving works, in wisdom, joy, and play.

Matthew 15New International Version (NIV)

That Which Defiles

15 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!”
3 Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’[a] and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[b] 5 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ 6 they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8 “‘These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
9 They worship me in vain;
their teachings are merely human rules.’[c]”
10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. 11 What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”
12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?”
13 He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. 14 Leave them; they are blind guides.[d] If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
15 Peter said, “Explain the parable to us.”
16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. 17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. 20 These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.”

The Faith of a Canaanite Woman

21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”
23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”
24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”
25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.
26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”
28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.

Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand

29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down. 30 Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them. 31 The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel.
32 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people;they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.”
33 His disciples answered, “Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?”
34 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.
“Seven,” they replied, “and a few small fish.”
35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people. 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand men, besides women and children.39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
Love Y’ all Madly,
Jonathan
