Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

It's easier to preach than to practice

If the Bible is true, the only good investment
is giving money to the poor. That is safe; it is
money put out on the best security, as being
lent to the Lord. And what a good thing it is to
make a good use of money, while so many spend
nearly all they have on their selfish desires,
fancies, and lusts!

We all love the world more than we think!

"Spare yourself!" is written very deeply in our hearts.

We love the poor children of God less than we think;
for deeds, not words, come closest to the heart.

It is easier to preach than to practice.

What a dreadful thing it is to have the curse of a
covetous heart! "The love of money is the root of all
evil," and sticks to one's heart like the flesh to the skin!

If any one at all despises money, the devil and the
world are in such a fight with him, that they are ready
to knock him on the head, and will abuse him for being
a fool, or a madman!

He knows what he is talking about. A heart given over to money is not given over to God. You cannot serve God and money.

God bless.

That is so true Dora; yet how many christians, especially celebrity pastors, serve mammon. May we all pray for Him to give us our allotted portion and keep us free from the love of money.

May the Lord bless you as well
