Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Greed, waste, and laziness will make you lose more money than you can ever earn, but God can teach you how to be productive and content.” ~ Jon Barnes

Begin

Begin to look at everything God has done on this planet as a tourist and admire His creations to become inspired to learn, grow, share, care, and develop the talent He has given you.  You are never too old to learn new things to color, dance, sing, read, listen, and give back to your community. As a result, you will find and develop many talents because of your willingness to be obedient to God’s ways and open to learning.

Play Nice

Playing nicely on the playground, at work, home, church, and everywhere you go is like saving money and developing good friends.  Saving your money by not wasting products, goods, and services are the best tool for consumption with contentment, just as saving your time by being obedient with God from the beginning.  Nurturing family, friends, students, and people will leave a lasting impression of gratitude, faith, and integrity.

Channel

Turn the channel from negative points of view and see yourself fixing your own problems each day one step at a time.  Do what you say and check off things on your list.  Channel your energy, thoughts, and prayers into doing all things with the best intentions with simplicity, focus, and fulfillment of joy.

1 Chronicles 10 

Saul Takes His Life

10 Now the Philistines fought against Israel; the Israelites fled before them, and many fell dead on Mount Gilboa. The Philistines were in hot pursuit of Saul and his sons, and they killed his sons Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malki-Shua. The fighting grew fierce around Saul, and when the archers overtook him, they wounded him.
Saul said to his armor-bearer, “Draw your sword and run me through, or these uncircumcised fellows will come and abuse me.”
But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it. When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died. So Saul and his three sons died, and all his house died together.
When all the Israelites in the valley saw that the army had fled and that Saul and his sons had died, they abandoned their towns and fled. And the Philistines came and occupied them.
The next day, when the Philistines came to strip the dead, they found Saul and his sons fallen on Mount Gilboa. They stripped him and took his head and his armor, and sent messengers throughout the land of the Philistines to proclaim the news among their idols and their people. 10 They put his armor in the temple of their gods and hung up his head in the temple of Dagon.
11 When all the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead heard what the Philistines had done to Saul, 12 all their valiant men went and took the bodies of Saul and his sons and brought them to Jabesh. Then they buried their bones under the great tree in Jabesh, and they fasted seven days.
13 Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord; he did not keep the word of the Lord and even consulted a medium for guidance, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord. So the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.
Love,
Jonathan
