Dinners Ready

Dinners Ready Matthew 6:12 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. I know this is not going to be a popular subject, but we have to address it, and know is as good a time as any. I may say some things that will bother a lot of you, but if the truth is hurting you than there is nothing I can do. Let me just go out there on that plank right now and admit that I am not so sure if I was unlucky enough to be born a Kennedy, or Bush, or even a Dupont, that I would be a Christian today. Matthew14:33 In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple. How much of a Christian would I be if I didn't have to be so dependant on Jesus? Honestly I can not say. If I was "rollin in the big bucks,"would I be able to control my ego, or lust? Would I be a drunk who wakes up to a bloody mary ever morning. What if I was a famous basketball player and had all these women throwing themselves at me? Would I be able to control myself? I don't know. I love my wife. I can proudly say we have been married for 25 years, but I have given her plenty of reason to want to leave. Can you imagine if I was lead down that tempting road? I'm not so sure I would be able to give up everything I had and follow Jesus. I say these things because we may all be facing tough times ahead. I know the quickest way to get someone to pray is to put them in a place where they need God. That's happen to me over and over again. Just when I start to feel a little comfortable, weird stuff just starts happening. Matthew 16:6 "Be careful," Jesus said to them. "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." Once we start to think we are in control, that we are, where we are, because of who we are, that's when we stop giving credit to Jesus. I have had some success in my life. There were times when I was able to enjoy a few things, and let me tell you I did not keep myself from celebrating life. I was lucky because I was always a step or two away from really reaching the stars, but I did have my moments. I did come to a point where I looked up to the Heavens and ask for more. That even though I had become a success in the eyes of the world, I still felt like I needed more. I wasn't fulfilled inside. I felt like I was missing something. God then took me under his wings and began showing me little by little, all the things I had been taking for granted. Last night my wife and three boys sat around the dinner table and as we ate we talked about things. I love those moments. I walked into church yesterday surrounded by the most loving people I ever had the pleasure to be around. The love I felt just greeting people as I walked to my sit, was as genuine as love can be. On every third Saturday of the month I get to spend the day with some family and friends, we all pitch in and gather for dinner. When I am at work I am surrounded by people who truly care about me. Every morning I get up and turn on my HDTV and watch the sunrise in different parts of the world. These moments cost nothing, yet I can say that they are more enjoyable than anything I can think of to spend money on. There are many moments in my day where I just feel the touch of love, from someone I care about. Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. Sometimes being lucky isn't so lucky. I know there have been some very bad moments in my life. I know that there will be some more bad times ahead. But now that I have Jesus in my life to point out those good times, the bad times don't seem all that bad. Ohh... I gotta go, dinners ready. bubba
