Dear Colleagues,

“WHOLE HEARTEDNESS” – Giving it 110% – A rare commodity today in our National slide into mediocrity.

Good Morning!

The Scriptures allow us no such quarter.  Consider Paul’s admonition to young Timothy+:

Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you

Literally: –  Don’t be careless with it
  –  Don’t disregard it
  –  Don’t make light of it.

Reminiscent,  of Jesus’ admonition regarding the talents:  Use it  and I will multiply it;  hide it and I will take it away from you. (Matt 25:15 – 30)

Take pains with these things

Literally:  –  Meditate upon them

 –  Revolve them  in your mind

Ponder these truths with the intention of applying them to your life.

Give Thyself wholly to them

Literally:  –  Agree with them

That is, don’t dance around the periphery. Jump into the water! Get committed!

Take heed

Literally:  –  Pay attention

–  Retain

Non-commitment and compromise are the operative values in the corridors of  today’s business, political  and educational  sophistry.

No so, the disciple of Jesus. The cost of Calvary demands nothing less than “my soul, my life, my all.”

 

 

My prayer is that you are having a great week!
