MORE: I KNOW THERE IS MORE... GIVE ME MORE...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

This is a two part lesson...

Many focus on YESTERDAY'S REGRETS... Too bad!

Others are focusing on TOMORROW'S DREAMS... Too bad!

Beyond the regrets of yesterday and the dreams of tomorrow are:

OPPORTUNITIES WE HAVE TODAY...

Don't lose sight ...

The really of life may not be the TOUCHDOWN... IT MAY BE THE FIRST DOWN...

There knock at the door MAY BE OPPORTUNITY?

Why are we fussing, complaining and grumbling... GET UP AND ANSWER THE

OPPORTUNITY...THERE IS MORE... YOU KNOW THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO LIFE

THAN THIS...

You may have some great opportunities before you...

That you do not see as an opportunity for more...

May you just don't want the DOOR TO OPEN? Keep it closed?

While you wait for opportunities, maybe you need to get up and make the

opportunity...

Opportunity may be hid in some hour work?

I. MANY DIG A GRAVE OF OPPORTUNITY IN A COMMON ACT OF

PROCRASTINATION...

CAN WE REALIZE THERE HAS TO BE MORE THAN THIS?

WHAT IS OUR PRIORITY? WILL WE ACCEPT THIS IS THE BEST I CAN DO?

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and

all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the

things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

A. On a hot day in San Antonio the temp was a blistering 99*.

The mother and her aunt were going shopping...

In hysteria the mother realized her baby girl was in the car.

Someone saw them screaming and made his best attempt to unlock the doors with a

clothes hanger. It did not work.

Someone noticed the baby girl was turning purple and foaming at the mouth.

THIS BECAME A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION.

Fred Arriola was driving a wrecker and saw the commotion.

He stopped and saw the baby was dying...

Fred quickly grabbed a hammer out of his tool box and smashed the rear window and

released the child to the mother, and placed to the baby in a cool AC in a car waiting

by... FRED BECAME AN IMMEDIATE HERO AND MADE THE NEWS...

HE TOLD THE CAMERA:

" I JUST THOUGHT WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT-------

THE WINDOW OR THE BABY?"

B. Later the mother was interview with the beautiful baby girl in her arms.

The mother asked the camera man: IS THAT WRECKER DRIVER GOING TO PAY

FOR MY WINDOW?

C. WEIGH PRIORITIES? The window was important? Sure?

But the baby was MORE IMPORTANT...

II. LET'S MAKE A CHOICE: SHALL WE KILL THE DREAM?

WILL FACTS BREED HATRED?

THERE WAS A YOUNG BOY... HE HAD A DYSFUNTIONAL FAMILY...

THERE WAS CONSTANT STRIFE WITH THE PARENTS...

THE BROTHERS HATED HIM...

THERE WAS A CHOICE TO MAKE... SHALL WE KILL THE DREAM?

A. DID YOU KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN...?

GOD HAS A PURPOSE AND THE ENEMY HAS A PLAN TO GET ANGRY AND MAD

AND TO TAKE MATTERS AND REVENGE IN YOUR OWN HANDS...

B. 10 brothers were all wrong, this little snot nose brother was a pain in the elbow...

Genesis 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his

brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him

yet the more.

Genesis 37:8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us?

or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the

more for his dreams, and for his words.

C. This little brother was a braggart, and rub it in your face...

I DREAMED THERE WAS 12 SHEAVES, I STOOD UP AND YOU ALL BOWED

AND BEGGED OF ME...

BUT THIS LITTLE BROTHER KNEW THERE WAS MORE THAN WHAT YOU

COULD SEE...

Genesis 37:19 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

D. SURE HE SEES THESE DREAMS OF MORE...

HE SEES THE SUN , THE MOON AND 11 STARS KISSING HIS FEET...

HE KNOWS THERE IS MORE... HE IS NOT HANDLING THE MORE VERY WELL...

We will SEE what becomes of HIS DREAM OF MORE...

Genesis 37:20 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some

pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will

become of his dreams.

III. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WHEN DEATH COMES TO OUR DREAM...

THE COAT OF MANY COLORS... THE FATHER'S FAVOR IS STRIPPED OFF HIS BACK...

NOW JOSEPH REALIZES THIS IS SERIOUS... THE DREAM APPEARS DEAD...

THE DREAMER OF MORE HAS LOST ALL HOPE...

A. THIS COAT OF MANY COLORS WAS MORE THAN A COAT...
