Summary: ZWW ( Zeal without wisdom) and WWZ (Wisdom without zeal) Can be deadly within the church. Boredom is a great enemy many face today. We need to get excited about God's plan.

THE DEEP CAVE OF DARKNESS…(Boredom)

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

DARKNESS MAY OFTEN BECOME A TANGLED WEB OF CHOICES.

I have some really good news you can use if you chose.

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT YOUR DAILY CHOICES.

I also bear some bad news, hear me?

LIFE IS ABOUT IS ALL ABOUT YOUR CHOICES.

Very few individuals reach honest maturity to recognize THAT WE BECOME THE SUM TOTAL OF OUR DAILY CHOICES.

Perhaps we can agree that life is 10% what happens to us… and 90% how we handle what happens to us.

CHIP AWAY

One day a huge piece of marble was delivered to the address of an artist. This artist was a SCULPTOR. He would take the stone and CHIP AWAY and CHIP AWAY one little piece of marble with his tools. Ever so slowly the MASTER WOULD CHIP AWAY the marble, one small piece at a time. 100’s of hours were invested AS HE SLOWLY CHIPPED AWAY the marble.

One day the artist stood back and observed his great masterpiece. Next came the unveiling of the masterpiece. It was a horse in great detail. The nostrils were so real, the muscles and the veins amazed everyone. This marble horse was a great master piece. As the crowd gathered around and admired this masterpiece of a horse a small boy ask: SIR, HOW DID YOU DO IT? HOW DID YOU MAKE THIS BEAUTIFUL HORSE OUT OF MARBLE?

The sculptor said: ALL I DID WAS TAKE A HUGE PIECE OF MARBLE AND SLOWLY CHIPPED AWAY EVERYTHING THAT DID NOT LOOK LIKE A HORSE.

MAY I SUGGEST TO YOU THAT GOD OUR FATHER DESIRES TO CHIP AWAY AT OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AND MAKE US A NEW CREATURE?

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Are we walking and talking as Christians?

WE COME TO THIS PLACE WHERE OUR ATTITUDES, MINDSETS, WORDS AND DEEDS CAN BRING US INTO DARKNESS OR INTO TOTAL LIGHT? IT IS A CHOICE IN HOW WE WILL REACT TO WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND US.

Within 15 miles from my house is the largest CAVE SYSTEM in the world. There are about 400 miles underground on 5 different levels. MAMMOUTH CAVE is so beautiful. There are many tours you can take. Years ago MAMMOTH CAVE was taken over by the US NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM.

One of the lines the rangers say when you below the surface is: YOU CAN’T BE BURIED ANY DEEPER IN CHEAPER.

On almost every tour given at some point the Park Ranger stops the crowd and talks. At this point the ranger turns up the lights and there is ABSOLUTE TOTAL DARKNKNESS, complete, T-total darkness. We had visited with a family from Florida as we walked.

I was with my older brother in the cave and the tour group was seated. The ranger turned off the lights. Total darkness? I told my brother: I AM GOOD LOOKING NOW!” To which the lady from Florida said: I DON’T THINK SO!

Oh, well I had my chance? Can others see the reflection of mind of Christ in us?

EVER HEARD THIS PRAYER

NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO REST, I HOPE TO PASS TOMORROW’S TEST?

IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE, THAT IS ONE LESS TEST I WILL HAVE TO TAKE!

WHILE EGPYT WAS IN TOTAL DARKNESS --- IN THE LAND OF GOSHEN THERE WAS AN EXEMPTION FROM THE DARKNESS?

TEXT:

Exodus 10:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. 22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: 23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

Exodus 12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

BOREDOM?

DARKNESS GIVES WAY WHEN WE LOSE OUR JOY IN DAILY LIVING…

BOREDOM?

BOREDOM: the state of being weary and restless through the lack of interest. Tiresome, devoid of interest,
