Save your Marriage with Words and Actions

Save Your Marriage with Words AND Actions::: People Say things differently.

In general, Women are Verbally oriented, and Men are Action oriented.

When a husband learns how to give and recieve communication with words, and a wife learns how to give and receive communication with actions… the affection in their marriage can grow EXPONENTIALLY!

Team first vs Score first players

Wow… 2 years later Kyrie has to apologize to Lebron for being a selfish leader now that he realizes that his score first leadership style doesn’t translate to wins for Cleveland OR for Boston. (Cleveland got to the finals without him. Boston got to the ECF without him.)

Lessons learned?
True leadership is team first.
Selfishness is obvious.
Maturity is true greatness.
Complete players are more valuable than scorers only.

What team in the Congregation or at your Job are you a part of that can you contribute to in an unselfish way?

You Can Get Rich in Ministry

You can get rich in ministry by using your prophetic gift to sense peoples weaknesses, deficiencies, and struggles. Then give them everything they need to help themselves improve EXCEPT that one thing they need: repentance from the sin they still love.

If you can use spiritual knowledge to meet people’s emotional and motivational needs without commanding them to repent from the sins they love, you can be a great deceiver and become rich in ministry.

However, spiritual wolves will have a place in the lake of fire. So this strategy is NOT recommended. Preach faith in Jesus and repentance to God’s Commandments. Baptize people in water, and pray for the infilling of the Holy Ghost.

Selfie Generation or Service Generation?

Millenials: Greatness is not found in Self-Expression & Fame, but in Responsibility & Serving All.  ♥️🆘️

Millenials: Our Generation is NOT the one that gets to replace serving, trusting God & diligent labor w/ the pursuit of fame.♥️🆘️

Millenials: YAH still needs servants! He didn’t stop making apostles, prophets, shepherds, & evangelists in 1980. Answer Him.♥️🆘️ 

Selfish/=Service

2 Corinthians 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

Placement and Positioning Beats WanderLust

Placement and Positioning is KEY. So much fruitfulness is lost and progress in life is delayed by us constant wandering instead of centering in at the place God has set for you.

Location and Relation is key to fulfillment of STRATEGY and for execution of God’s will for your life.

Blessings flow for those in the right place at the right time. Get in right position! Get in the right relationships! Don’t wander in unfruitful, unsafe, or unpurposed places just for feelings of WanderLust. Listen to wise counsel and listen to the Spirit.

Wisdom works! Be Wise, be Stable, and be Centered in your placement and positioning.

Proverbs 27:8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.

Does a bird fly away? Yes. But to bear fruit she must come back to her nesting place.

Its okay to travel but always recenter in at your resting place. This is key to your prosperity and fruitfulness.

PLACEMENT AND POSITIONING BEATS WANDERLUST
THE SPIRIT OF A VAGABOND STEALS YOUR PROSPERITY.
A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS.
YOUR NESTING PLACE IS YOUR RESTING PLACE.
There’s many different ways to say it… the point is: Get Set, Get Centered, and Get Settled in the place God has set for you Geographically, Professionally, and Spiritually!

Obedience and Strife Don’t Mix

If you always are pushing self, and pushing strifes instead of showing peacable fruits and a lifestyle of meekness and obedience, your so-called wisdom is demonic.

James 3: 13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

mark and avoid self-serving teachers

Teaching Doctrine is for MATURE disciples who realize that any error, any selfishness, any pride, any iniquity can damage the next generation.

Self-promoters, Self-actualizers, and Self-servers are to be marked and avoided because they are Self-condemning.

James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

Romans 16:17
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
