There is generation

Proverbs 30:11-14:

There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

Interesting thought. We just need to remember God allows those who are in authority to be placed there. We just may not know why until we get to Glory though.

Are you lettin' the world change your home? Or you letting your home change the world?
Jonathan McNeese.
Someone posted this on FB to be funny. However, it's quite true...

How do you expect kids to listen to their parents when Tarzan lives half naked, Cinderella comes home at midnight, Pinocchio lies all the time, Aladdin is the king of thieves, Batman drives at 200 mph, Sleeping Beauty is lazy, and Snow White lives with 7 guys. We shouldn't be surprised when kids misbehave, they get it from their storybooks.

Serve the LORD with gladness

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.  Psalm 100: 1-2

We need to remember that we are to serve the LORD with gladness, and even a song, and not be resentful of the things we do for HIM. From scrubbing toilets to serving little kids in VBS, we should do it all for HIS glory and to serve HIM.

What if all you had today is what you thanked God for yesterday?

Where are your affections?

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2

Too often we put so much into what we have here (our house, vehicles, stuff - AKA: Junk) and forget the Bible tells us to lay up treasures in Heaven:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Matthew 6:19-20

We should all rethink where are treasures truly are.
