Dishonesty

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Stepping out of habitual, cultural, ignorance takes an act of God, because we are too stupid and dishonest to figure these things out for ourselves, so listen to God and your loved ones.”  ~  Jon Barnes

When

When faced with the naked truth of a matter, many people will run into the opposite direction because it takes discipline to change, alter, or delete negative thinking, work, words, thoughts, and habits of old.  You are your worst enemy and the excuses that you have are not true or good.  Your body gets comfortable and becomes a willing partner in doing wrong.  The worst offenders are the fake Christians who hide behind a few scriptures to deceive, flip good fundamentals and do as they please.

Comfort

When things seem right because everyone is doing it, without questioning the moral, spiritual, physical, and logical consequences of your actions, the future of your family is at stake.  Since many people don’t even care about their families, faith, and God, based on their actions, our societies are becoming more uncomfortable, because of dishonest practices.  Check your motives and honest intentions.

Hurts

Everything you do should be a conflict of interest with being dishonest, wasteful, greedy, and immoral.  We hurt people by looking the other way, ignoring our responsibilities to God, ourselves, family, and people.  Your lack of support, faith, and work in God’s lifestyle expose the dishonest behavior that you cannot shake on your own.  Stop hurting yourself and others, by asking for help from God.  Using people is a deception that God doesn’t like.  Be a blessing, not a curse.
Today’s Question
Are you using the tools that God has provided to step out of your habitual stupidity and habitually dishonest behavior of sin and evil?

Job 24 

Job Asks Why the Wicked Are Not Punished

24 “Why doesn’t the Almighty bring the wicked to judgment?
    Why must the godly wait for him in vain?
Evil people steal land by moving the boundary markers.
    They steal livestock and put them in their own pastures.
They take the orphan’s donkey
    and demand the widow’s ox as security for a loan.
The poor are pushed off the path;
    the needy must hide together for safety.
Like wild donkeys in the wilderness,
    the poor must spend all their time looking for food,
    searching even in the desert for food for their children.
They harvest a field they do not own,
    and they glean in the vineyards of the wicked.
All night they lie naked in the cold,
    without clothing or covering.
They are soaked by mountain showers,
    and they huddle against the rocks for want of a home.
“The wicked snatch a widow’s child from her breast,
    taking the baby as security for a loan.
10 The poor must go about naked, without any clothing.
    They harvest food for others while they themselves are starving.
11 They press out olive oil without being allowed to taste it,
    and they tread in the winepress as they suffer from thirst.
12 The groans of the dying rise from the city,
    and the wounded cry for help,
    yet God ignores their moaning.
13 “Wicked people rebel against the light.
    They refuse to acknowledge its ways
    or stay in its paths.
14 The murderer rises in the early dawn
    to kill the poor and needy;
    at night he is a thief.
15 The adulterer waits for the twilight,
    saying, ‘No one will see me then.’
    He hides his face so no one will know him.
16 Thieves break into houses at night
    and sleep in the daytime.
    They are not acquainted with the light.
17 The black night is their morning.
    They ally themselves with the terrors of the darkness.
18 “But they disappear like foam down a river.
    Everything they own is cursed,
    and they are afraid to enter their own vineyards.
19 The grave[a] consumes sinners
    just as drought and heat consume snow.
20 Their own mothers will forget them.
    Maggots will find them sweet to eat.
No one will remember them.
    Wicked people are broken like a tree in the storm.
21 They cheat the woman who has no son to help her.
    They refuse to help the needy widow.
22 “God, in his power, drags away the rich.
    They may rise high, but they have no assurance of life.
23 They may be allowed to live in security,
    but God is always watching them.
24 And though they are great now,
    in a moment they will be gone like all others,
    cut off like heads of grain.
25 Can anyone claim otherwise?
    Who can prove me wrong?”
 
Love,
 
Jonathan
