YOU CAN COOK IN SMALL POTS! WHAT IS THE VALUE OF A SEED?---

I have a pint jar of corn seeds. If needed candy corn?
IF YOU LISTEN CLOSELY TO EACH PERSON'S ARGUMENT THEIR WAY IS RIGHT...
THIS IS HARMLESS. I CAN PLAY WITH SIN AND STILL BE RIGHT.
John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again
unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
WHAT IS TRUTH? IS TRUTH ABSOLUTE?
IS TRUTH REALLY TRUTH?
WHO DEFINES TRUTH?
IS TRUTH RELATIVE?
CAN ANYTHING I DESIRE AND DEMAND BE THE TRUTH?
ARE WE SO TOLERANT THAT WE ARE INTOLERANT OF THE TRUTH?
There were 19 men that boarded 4 airplanes --- THEY THINK THEY ARE RIGHT...
No matter how many innocent people die? (3,000 plus)
IF WE CAN DEFINE TRUTH? THEY ARE RIGHT, RIGHT?
WE HAVE BECOME SO SEEKER FRIENDLY THAT WE DO NOT WANT TO HURT
PEOPLE USE ANGER TO MANIPULATE TRUTH?
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways
Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
I don't care what you say...POPULAR OPINION DEFINES RIGHT? MAJORITY RULES RIGHT?
THIS SEEMS HARMLESS TO ME? I AM RIGHT, AT LEAST IN MY OWN EYES?
When I was a teen JOHNNY CASH sang a song: "WHAT IS TRUTH?" He sang about Viet Nam?
Sad but true: Read the Bible to see what people should do!
Read Face Book and watch the news to see what people really do.
It is hard to HEAR OPPORTUNITIES when the TV IS ALWAYS ON...
THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES BEFORE US...
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the
flesh. 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before
the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
I read a story of a man named William Ewart Gladstone that lived from 1809 to 1898.
Gladstone was one of the longest serving and most popular PRIME MINISTER in England.
The story was told that GLADSTONE WAS IN ONE OF THE GREATEST POLITICAL CRISIS
of his life. William Gladstone was pressed on every side and was facing opposition on
William was so heavy and he was sitting working on a speech at 2 AM and he could not
seem to find the proper words to address the House of Commons.
At 2 AM a mother of a poor family came to his door and knocked and knocked. William
answered the door and the mother was crying her SON LAY CRIPPLE, DYING. She begged
Gladstone to PLEASE, COME TO THEIR HOUSE TO COMFORT AND CONSOLE THE
DYING YOUNG MAN.
WITH ANY HESTITATION GLADSTONE LEFT HIS SPEECH PREPARATION AND WENT
TO THE BED SIDE OF THE DYING YOUNG MAN WHERE GLADSTONE LEAD THE YOUNG
MAN TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS HIS PERSONAL SAVIOR.
Gladstone stayed the rest of the night with the family. About sunrise the young man passed
away and the family found great comfort that the Prime Minister of England stayed up all night
with the family. Gladstone closed the eyes on the corpse and went home.
Gladstone did not complain of being tired that day. He approached the day with A SMILE
OF CONFIDCE, PEACE AND POWER. The speech had to made without the proper preparation.
GLADSTONE'S SPEECH WAS A MASTERPIECE AND BECAME KNOWN AS ONE OF THE
GREATEST SPEECH OF HIS LIFE.
After the great masterpiece was delivered, Gladstone was reported to have said:
" I AM THE HAPPIEST MAN IN THE WORLD TODAY."
WHERE DO I FIND TRUTH? WHO DEFINES TRUTH? GOD SAYS??
DO WE FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE? DO WE SEE PROBLEMS, WHEN GOD SAYS:
THIS PROBLEM IS COULD JUST BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY!
WANT TO TALK ABOUT UNDERSTANDING? SOME ISSUES JUST DO NOT SEEM TO
MAKE A LOT OF SENSE?
CAN WE SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES?
Do we jump to the CONCLUSION more than we jump to OPPORTUNITY?
WHAT DO WE THINK WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
THIS PROBLEM IS A REAL PROBLEM... OUR DONKEYS RUN AWAY...
1 Samuel 9:3 And the DONKEYS of Kish Saul's father were lost. And Kish said to Saul his
son, Take now one of the servants with thee, and arise, go seek the donkeys.
Many seek a final destination, when we need to find joy in the menial daily task.
You might find God in chasing your dad's donkeys.
