“We all think that our thoughts are straight until we share and do them for people to see and critique, especially God! When the proper point of view comes into play, a wise person makes corrections and calibrations to fit the reality of God’s Principles”. ~ Jon Barnes
Once you get an understanding, one must execute the goal, job, or commandment. You did the good job or you did not do the good job. God gives you a reward or a punishment. It is that simple. Up is up and down is down. Sometimes I find that my perception plays ping pong, paddling with a white ball in my head, and my imagination runs wild on my perception, perspective, and principles.
Fortunately, I rely on God’s Word to navigate my principles to make better choices than my imagination and I usually override my fleshy mind and thoughts to fight off evil ideas. God is good to help us stay the course and finish the race to complete each new job or assignment. Stay busy working on the right stuff and not wasting your time being distracted, wicked or lazy.
When I lived with my mom, I made sure that I did what she asked, as if God asked me to do it. I had a job to do and I got it done. The quality of your effort will live longer than you and affect more people than you think. You are someone’s solution, when you obey God and do your job of service, helps, and quality effort. Real, Godly solutions are found when you listen, stop complaining, and do the work. Obedience brings about the best long term solutions to God.
Is your perspective a little off?

Matthew 28New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Has Risen
28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
The Guards’ Report
11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.
The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
