Anatomy of a Fool
1. A fool does not listen. (Proverbs)
2. A fool does not tell himself no. (Ecc 2)
3. A fool a fool says in his *heart* there is no God (Psalm 14)
A GOOD thing can become a BAD thing if it becomes an ULTIMATE thing.
-when your pursue the longings of your flesh, you say in your heart there is no God!
-it doesn’t matter what your mouth is saying, in your heart you say there is no God.
-listen not to understand, but for compassion. Not to understand, but to give that other person attention.
-a fool only worries about getting his point across, he cannot be corrected.
-a fool bows down to his urges and is led by his urges rather than the Holy Spirit
****Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, then the surrendering of my heart is the end of my foolishness.
walking the Christian walk isn’t all about “what God can do for me”. Why don’t we boast about how we loved someone so hard that it made us feel uncomfortable. or when God dared to challenge us & push outside of our comfort zone in order to save someone else. where we went the extra mile to pray for someone who we didn’t even know. or the work that is required of us in the Kingdom where we gain NOTHING. yes this is a blessed life, but glitz and glamour is not the prize, & it never was.
what if God was to sit you down w a box like a box that toys come in. On the top of that box is a list of everything that He equipped you with. On that list are things that you’ve never seen in yourself, things that you think you are incapable of, & some things that just simply scare you to death. But here it is God, your Heavenly Father laying it all out for you, & then He looks at you when He’s done & says “Wow, do I have some great things in store for you”.
Even when you don’t see it in yourself, you are capable of loving like He loves. Even when you think you aren’t equipped to forgive that person, you are. Even when the environment you’ve been placed in scares you to death, God has given you the victory. Even when you think your dream that keeps you up late at night is beyond your imagination, God knows He has equipped you to accomplish it w a snap of a finger.
Don’t be afraid of the power that’s inside of you w Christ Jesus, but embrace it, claim it, move mountains, & accept the victory that is already yours! you’re more than a conqueror. 💕 have a great day!
I’m so excited to see this movie! I’m very encouraged by the Christian worldview coming to cinemas and the entertainment industry. I’m a film production major so of course I appreciate any advancement for the kingdom! Bring a friend that you want to introduce the Greatest Story Ever Told to! 🙂
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.
Romans 15:2-3 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. For even Christ did not ease Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproaches You fell on Me.”
