Gen 24---Water for my camels

Secret to a long life-


1.Career Satisfaction

Look at pepole as you drive to work- you’ll know

if they’re satisfied

If you hate what your doing- you’re not doing what God wants you to do

“If loving your career means a long life, some of you might not make it through service.

Knowing you’re meant to do something – MEANS YOU’D DO IT FOR FREE

But your so good- people pay you to do it

I preach for free------All that junk between MON-SAT---I GET PAID FOR THAT

I heard a preacher preach on this---I thought it would really help us out

Top Ten Hardest Jobs –

1.Inner city HS Teacher



4.Traffic controller

5.Med intern

6.Stock broker


8.CS complaint



What about MOMS- Corporate CEO’s – 1 hour of mommying-

They’d be crying like a baby

Genesis 24:9-22

Notice Rebekah was willing to Go the 2nd mile

Camels Hold 40 galons of water each----LIGHT FLASHING EMPTY_EMPTY ON THOSE CAMELS

NOTICE ELEAZAR- Any of the women would have given HIM a drink

But the one He wanted for a wife for Isaac-


HE didn’t see what color she was-

where she went to church-

how she dressed-

Did she have a Hairbun - GOD released us from BUNDAGE

HE wanted someone who was willing to give more than was required

We live in a nation- FULL OF LAZY PEOPLE-


A designer for FORD- positioned the GAS TANK where if you hit it on the side- IT EXPLODES

THEY SET DOWN- Will it cost us more- to fix it- or Can we sell enough to cover the lawsuits

In the mind of a CHRISITAN- We should always God the extra mile


God wants Christians to be known- as people that aren’t afraid to GO a farther

MATTHEW 5:38-42

God always expects us to GIVE MORE than we’re expected to

When the world sees Christians today- They say, "They’re doing all that because they have to"

When you give more- they’ll wonder “WHY ARE THEY DOING THAT”

If we did- FIRST QUESTION on job applications-


If we Mention=Spritual Gifts- Power given to ordinary-extroidinary things

WE need power given to ordinary people- to do ordinary things

Don’t be so legalistic- We just a bunch of Pharisees

Give what we have to – Nothing more

They were the quintecentioal clock punchers

Jesus said- Your Righteousness must exceed that of the Pharisees

Cant Give extra- Until you do what you’re suppose to

3. Extra blessing comes from extra effort

When you get the extra- not many people there- most have exited

Mark 4:24

Luke 6:38

Extra effort- leads to extra blessing

What if our married people did that

“ I don’t have to do that or this” “you do it yourself”

Lots guys that Male by Birth- You gotta be a man by Choice”

Lots of Girls female by birth- You have to be woman by Choice”

“THAT’S NOT MY JOB”- iF you work here, It’s your JOB

plumber-carpenter-vacuumer-lifter- Trash picker upper

IF you live like that- that’s what you will receive

If your not a giver- you’re not a reciever

I don’t feel sorry for them- YOU GOTTA SOW TO REAP

Rebekah gave more than was expected-
