Thought for the Day

We can find true freedom only in trying to please our Father in Heaven. For we can have only “One Master” When we allow others to take control, our energy is scattered to the winds.

Ephesians 5:8 – 10;8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:  9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)  10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.” 

Matthew 6:24;24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” 

Our concentration must always be on the Father – staying close to Him at all times. It is impossible to stray when focusing on His Presence.

Matthew 6:1;1Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.”

Matthew 23:12; 12And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”
