The Right Motivation

Through The Looking Glass2

Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn made this quote:

You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them. But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power – he’s free again.

Manipulating a person is easy once you find out what it is that they treasure. When a person fears loss, they can be coerced into doing almost anything.

What an insight into the spiritual realm —

As long as we have things that we hold on to tighter than our love for Jesus, we will always live in fear, and we’ll always be subject to manipulation from the devil.

Jesus tells us in His word…

For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. ~ Matthew 16:25

If we lay everything we hold sacred at the feet of Jesus, we will find that nothing can compare to knowing Him…

And that is the one thing no one can ever take away.

The Life of Faith Through The Looking Glass

Where Is Your Treasure?

Through the Looking Glass

Few would argue the value of having a teachable spirit…

Chinese philosopher Confucius said… “Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous”.

American businessman Henry Ford said… “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young”.

English novelist Aldous Huxley said… “Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. Experience teaches only the teachable”.

Sure, things in our economy are tough right now, but we’ve been here before, and worse. However, it’s not so much about what we do at this time that will make the long term difference…

It’s about what we, as a nation, take from this experience, and apply to the future.

Jesus said that “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. Treasure stored up in an earthly financial market is easily lost. Make sure that your treasure is stored up in God’s unshakeable Kingdom.

And His Kingdom will never end!
