FPD … Yep, we all have it

FPD … Yep, we all have it

September 23, 2021

For over a year now, you can't turn on the news without hearing about Covid.  But Jesus tells us about another disease that's been around for much longer ... and we ALL have it.  It's called FPD (The Finger Pointing Disease).  Jesus paints a very vivid picture of how this plays out in our lives in the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector.

What happens when you hang on to something that no longer has any value?  Is it helpful or hurtful?  This is the same question the Israelites had to deal with.  Without really realizing it, they continued to cherish and worship a chunk of brass.  They missed the purpose and the person behind the gift.

Like it or not, we all want to be accepted.  We all want approval.  We all know people who are even addicted to approval.  It's a trap.  Worse than that, it imprisons us.  Today's episode shares 3 simple truths to help you get out of (and stay out of) the "People-Pleasing-Prison".

In today’s episode we see that Elisha makes an acquaintance with a wealthy lady and her husband in the city of Shunem.  She and her husband do something unexpected.  They choose to be a blessing to Elisha by providing him a small room in their home, as well as 4 essential things that they believed he needed to continue being effective in his ministry.  These are the same 4 things that we need in our daily walk with the Lord.

The Worthlessness of Worry (with Laura Leavell)

The Worthlessness of Worry (with Laura Leavell)

Jesus warns us of the dangers of worry, but yet we choose to do it anyway.  Join us today as guest Laura Leavell shares some insightful reminders and truths.  Matthew 6 is clear, worry is a character trait of people who do not know the Lord, not of believers.  Remember that our faith does not rest on the future (and all the things we worry about), but rather on the One who holds the future.

What does chocolate have to do with a parable that Jesus tells in Matthew 21? (at least in my mind, there's a small correlation).  Today we look at 2 sons who responded in completely different ways to their father's question.  Their responses tell us much about the way we respond to the same question.  You can make the choice to live for yourself, or to serve.  Those are the only two options.

What happens when a king tries to fool an entire nation about his relationship with God?  What are the lengths that we will go to in order to fool the people around us?  King Rehoboam, Solomon's son, shows us what NOT to do.  God has to send the king of Egypt to teach Rehoboam and the nation what serving is all about.

Chasing The Vultures Away

Chasing The Vultures Away

In episode 8, we see that Abram experienced an extended time of darkness right after he obeyed the Lord -- and what complicated the problem is that he had to spend the rest of the day shooing away the vultures so they wouldn't take his sacrifice -- all the while he's waiting for God to show up.  Read Genesis 15 and be encouraged.

We constantly make choices as we walk!  The long road or the short path? The difficult climb or the easy one?  Left or right? 
The most important walk in our lives is the walk we have with God.

Are you in step?

What may not be very apparent to us is that the opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.  Love and hate are two very strong emotions that have actions associated with them.  But indifference means NO action.
