Don't Sell Out
While watching the movie, 'Indecent Proposal' I was reminded of what money will do to people. Money will break up relationships as well as ruin friendships. For some reason, people will engage in unethical behavior in order to get something. They will provide excuses for their actions and justify their decision. In a real sense, people will take matters into their own hands rather than trusting in the living God. It may seem difficult, but God will test your faith. Through your faith in God, you will become victorious.
In this spiritual journey, you need to know there'll be times when you will be pushed to the edge. You'll be challenged to do what goes contrary to your faith and belief. It's during this time in your life that you will need to lean on the everlasting arms of Jesus. The question is; do you want to do it God's way or your way? If it's your way, there's immediate relief. Pleasure will come quickly. However, there's a price to pay. On the other hand, if you wait on God, what was meant to kill you will strengthen you in your faith. When God shows up, He will give you double for your trouble, open up the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing. This blessing will cause your cup to overflow.
The Bible tells us, "But those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings likes eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." If you hold out for the Lord, you will blow up from the floor up. However, if you choose to sell out, then destruction will follow you. With God, you are destined for greatness. Think about it the next time you are tempted to sell out your soul for a temporary fix. What's more important, a temporary fix or a permanent life with God? Ask yourself, how strong is your faith? Do you talk about it or do you live it? Rev. Dr. Sinclair Grey III 1.31.14

"This warning and teaching is applicable in terms of sex also. Money and sex hold hands often. Many men think a dinner will buy them sex, and many women think their sex will buy them security. As is often the case theirs is an inability to adapt to the changes of emotions as well as the financial shifts that occur in complex economies. Further handicapped they lack the depth of knowledge of energies and relationships with divinity are not within their lexicon. What holds other people who subscribe to other ventures, who operate from knowing, and ways of being to get the things and the sex they need?
That is a good question within many questions inherent within my words. The answers may vary, but in pondering the ramifications of actions there are things many people don't have in place. Financial literacy is one, disciplined teaching embedded within their spirits is another, and other factors are missing, and no amount of scriptures spoken can do the spiritual work necessary to make the scriptures viable, and their lives more meaningful in the depths of their being!" - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 1.31.14
