November 30 Thankfulness Acting Like a Windshield Wiper

November 30 Thankfulness Acting Like a Windshield Wiper
We are into a season when you do not know just what you will encounter when you are driving. It could be snow or it could be rain but fortunately vehicles are equipped with windshield wipers that allow a person to be able to see the road with greater clarity. Did you know there is a means in which a person who has a relationship with God, made possible through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, can see the goodness of God with greater clarity? Something that is accessible, that can act like a windshield wiper and clear away that which is blurring one’s vision of God. It is thankfulness. Being thankful to God. In first Thessalonians 5:18 it reads, “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

November 28 Buying a Superyacht

Last month in Monaco, at the yachting world’s most glamorous event superyachts were on sale with a combined worth of approximately 3.8 billion. Buying a superyacht is an experience limited to the rich and famous or at least rich. In the Bible, Jesus speaks of an experience that is made available that is of infinite worth but he limits this experience not to the rich and famous but the poor. Those who are poor in Spirit. Jesus says in Matthew 5:3 blessed are the poor in spirt, for there is the kingdom of heaven. Poor in Spirit are those who recognize their destitute, spiritual condition. It speaks of someone who recognizes their need of salvation made possible through Jesus Christ and they trust in Him to satisfy that need.

November 25 Bragging

In an article put out by Conscious Rethink entitled, How to Deal with Bragging Friends/Relatives, it is noted that it becomes unhealthy when we use our accomplishments to elevate ourselves at the expense of others. Did you know the Bible gives direction on bragging? In the book of Jeremiah there is clear direction on what is beneficial for a person to actually boast about. It reads, “Thus says the LORD “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.”

November 23 Laser Like Focus

November 27th is the birthday of the late Martial Arts legend Bruce Lee. He would have been 82 this year. He was quoted as saying, “the successful warrior is the average man with laser-like focus.” I trust you have recognized the importance of the right focus in your own life. Jesus shares in John 14:15, if you love me you will keep my commandments. A problem that some people have faced is they have not focused on the most important aspect of this verse. The problem is obedience is not to be the focus but love which will produce obedience. Jesus was asked one day, what is the greatest commandment given in the Law? He responded by saying, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

November 21 Recession Coming to Canada says Economist

CTV news reported recently that Canada is headed for a recession in early 2023, according to one economist. Economist David Doyle said, “Our baseline is that Canada will enter a recession in the first quarter of 2023.” I want to share with you a financial plan from the Bible in which a man named Agur shares his financial concerns in the form of a prayer. In the book of Proverbs it reads, “Two things I request of You (Deprive me not before I die): Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches— Feed me with the food allotted to me; Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, and profane the name of my God.

November 18 24 Pounds of Fentanyl

Last month fox news reported that the Minnesota police department made its largest ever fentanyl bust. A man was arrested who was in possession of 24 pounds of the extremely dangerous drug. Fentanyl is an opioid drug that is 50 times stronger than heroin. It is deadly! Did you know the Bible tells us that we have all been injected with something that is deadly that has to be addressed? Romans 3:23 reads, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and later on it reads, “for the wages of sin is death.” Death meaning eventual separation from God. Thankfully this same verse later tells us that, “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

November 16 Discovering Gold Coins

Recently 44 pure gold coins were found in a wall in a residence at a nature reserve in Israel. Archeologists in Israel say the 44 gold coins date back to the 7th century. It is believed they were hidden during a time of war but never retrieved until recently. Imagine discovering such a treasure. In the Bible Jesus shares a story of a man who found a treasure in a field and then went and sold all that he had to buy the field so he could have the treasure. The treasure pictured is the kingdom of heaven and is of infinite worth, but we can actually possess it. Jesus also shared the way into the kingdom. He said in John 14:6 I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the father but by me.

Are you a night owl? Do you prefer to go to bed later than most? A new study published in the journal of experimental physiology has found that being a consistent night owl places an individual at a higher risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Night owls had lower aerobic fitness levels and burned less fat at rest then early birds in the study. It appears having rest at the proper time is beneficial physically. Did you know the Bible has something very essential to say about rest? It is shared by Jesus but He is not referring to physical rest but spiritual. He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Have you experienced that type of rest?

November 11 Small Talk

Do you recognize small talk with a stranger to be advantageous? CTV news reported recently about a U.K. study that suggests short interactions with strangers can be very beneficial. According to the study personality traits in a stranger can be revealed within four minutes. Did you know there is a passage in the Bible that speaks of the knowledge of God regarding individuals? It is in the book of Psalms it reads, “O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thoughts afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. The reality is no one knows you better than God.

November 9 Being Self-Sufficient

With over half a million homes and business’s losing power from hurricane Fiona last month the demand for generators skyrocketed. People want to become more self-sufficient when the power is out. Some people think being self-sufficient, in relation to God, is a good thing. It is the idea of striving to be a good person, or at least better than other people, and the thought is by striving to be good that will make a person right with God. The bible tells us for someone who is in relationship with God, being self-sufficient was not the way they got there. Ephesians 2:8-9 reads, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
