Throw Away

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When I find myself throwing away the values, virtues, and vernacular learned from the wonderful stories, accomplishments, and lifestyles of my parents, grandparents, and my great-grandparents, my integrity in God takes a stand to drive me in the right direction.” ~Jon Barnes

Clues

Adults tell secret stories about themselves with their jokes, talks, lectures, stories, and historical mistakes along with the wonderful lessons they have learned along the way.  I have always leaned in to hear and memorize those rare nuggets of old, unpolished gold, in which God uses to teach us lessons. We all hear what’s being said, yet our arrogance puts wisdom to bed, prematurely. We know answers to our problems, but, choose not to engage in biblical common sense practices. Why do we throw away the wheel to reinvent the square wheel?

Are Cues

Justice is swift, open, and relevant when learning from God, particularly when you see your life going in the wrong direction and you still disobey the rules and regulations. Boldly, we tend to march out to sea, without a captain, ship, or rescue boat. Yeah, we all know how to swim, right? In life, waves are not fair but, we all will get our share so prepare before you go down there, into the deep. Respect the treasure maps that are given to you by God’s good people to navigate tough waters and weather patterns. Use these cues to navigate back to shore. 

To Reuse

Learn to use the movement of God’s waves to flow in the direction your life is supposed to go. Experiences that are handed down are like energy bursts from waves marching to shore, opening doors to your future. If you find yourself swimming and rowing against the current, float and notice the direction of successful people, who love God. They all look similar, full of love, faith, hope, and charity. Refuse to throw these God-given gifts away.
Today’s Question
Are you, a servant who works for God, leading and serving in the community or do you swim with pride against the tied?
Enjoy The Reading
