After finding a beehive that makes the world's best honey, C.J. goes into business and finds that he hasn't the time for anyone or anything that doesn't make him more money!
There are no coincidences. Things don’t just happen—they’re planned. And God uses the events in our lives to get us to stop and pay attention to what He’s saying.
What stubborn people we can be! Selfish to the core, we want our way, not someone else’s…and certainly not God’s. Short-sighted, we see the immediate and the obvious, not the ultimate and the hidden. Easily irritated and impatient, our first reaction when taken advantage of is to retaliate, to establish a defensive posture and not give anyone an inch. Those efforts only intensify when faced with an adversary. Then we aren’t satisfied with simply standing our ground and being determined…getting even becomes our agenda.
Every day we are bombarded with bad news and we miss the uplifting message of life. But it is possible to have a joyful and enthusiastic attitude in spite of circumstances.
There’s no more telltale sign of a society’s moral erosion than the breakdown of integrity. In domestic settings, this breakdown reveals itself most dramatically in marital infidelity. In the personal lives of individuals, it evidences itself most clearly in verbal dishonesty. When partners cheat on each other…when people lie to one another, a community’s moral fiber weakens and quickly deteriorates. Such things should not characterize those who claim to belong to Christ. In His greatest of sermons, Jesus addressed both these issues.
