“You are a dog in a cage when evil fills your mind, time, and space, having nothing good to say about anything, with nothing good to do with your life.” ~ Jon Barnes
The Good Trap
Are you Trapped? People & media will only love and share Good Stuff about 1% of the time. Where are the Good Stories? You don’t want them! You won’t read them. You will not talk about them. So, YOUR life sucks because that is your focus and YOU are not helping the person next to you, let alone your kids and family in you own house. ~ Jon Barnes
“Evil wins when you become paralyzed and caught up in the evil story. Where is your good video, story, or act of kindness? What are you doing to make this a better world, at home, on the job, at church, and across the streets?” We talk about people and do nothing ourselves. Get out of this cage and put Good Meaning back into your life. ~ Jon Barnes
Tip of the Day! “Invent better ways of educating, training, working, and saving time, money, and resources to do all the Good you can do with your hands, mind, and mouth. Then God will bless you and the people around you. Evil does not fight Evil with Evil. Good always wins over evil with Good! So, use your Good money, Good time, Good common sense, Good ideas, Good Work and stop being lazy” ~ Jon Barnes

Matthew 26New International Version (NIV)
The Plot Against Jesus
26 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, 2 “As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”
3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, 4 and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. 5 “But not during the festival,” they said, “or there may be a riot among the people.”
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
6 While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked.9 “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,[a] but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
14 Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.
The Last Supper
17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher
Love Y’ all Madly,
