The Good Yes & No

Hello Peeps,

 

Today’s Quote

 
“You are what you say and do, which is why, how and what you think. Your actions become your thinking words in your head, so be clear about your thoughts.”  ~  Jon Barnes
 

Yes Or No

 

Yes means Yes and No means No.    “An honest person means every word that comes out of their mouth, but who can tell the thoughts of a fool, with their folly and fables.”   My grandparents taught me how to commit to a job, task, idea, relationship, and to God!  They were not perfect, but they were perfectly committed to help and teach their families how to be good people, love God, and love others. 

 

Commit

 
I saw, knew, and embraced this amazing quality in them and it drives me to clarity, simplicity, integrity, and honesty with God and people.  I have made mistakes and probably will make more, yet I continue to repent and find ways to do better, fixing old mistakes and minimizing new mistakes.  
 

Perfection

 
“The process of perfection is the intent to do well from the heart, without lying to the Mind, which is regulated by the heart.  You cannot lie to God, as you cannot lie to yourself.  If you want perfection, follow Christ!”  ~  Jon Barnes 
 

The Heart Knows

 
The Heart knows the truth of Yes and No and you are without excuse.  God will judge your heart to see if it is wicked or pure.  The pure in heart will see God.  Others will see the fire!   Let your yes be yes, and light up the world with your songs, dances, and good works. Let your no be no to smack the devil upside the head with great joy and comfort.  God is your witness protection plan.
 

Doing Good

 
“Doing Good does not mean you have to feel Good about it.  You grow in wisdom and listening to Good instructions.”  ~  Jon Barnes
 
Today’s Question
 
Are you lying to yourself?

Matthew 20New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

20 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. 2 He agreed to pay them a denarius[a] for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
3 “About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. 4 He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ 5 So they went.
“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. 6 About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’
7 “‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.
“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’
8 “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’
9 “The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12 ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’
13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’
16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time

17 Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, 18 “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death19 and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”

A Mother’s Request

20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
21 “What is it you want?” he asked.
She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.”
22 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?”
“We can,” they answered.
23 Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.”
24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. 25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Two Blind Men Receive Sight

29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
32 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
33 “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”
34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
Love Y’ all Madly,
Jonathan
