More Than Enough

Ingratitude is leprosy of the soul. The slow, inexorable corrosion of the heart, causing it to be incapable of feeling. Ingratitude is an impoverishing of your spirit. Ingratitude and arrogance are always inseparable.


It is quite easy for you to list those who have MORE than you do...more money, beautiful house, nicer clothes, expensive vehicles, gourmet food...forever.


Have you ever made a list of those who have LESS than you do?


Have you ever even thought of the people who have less than you do?


Have you ever asked yourself "How much is enough?" How much before you can finally say, "I have enough.?"


I urge you to do three things:


1. Be thankful for whatever you have, every day, of every year, for the rest of your life.


2. Find someone who has a need and help them. They are everywhere. Even in your own community. Do it today. Don't stop.


3. Refuse to be arrogant about what you do have. Refuse to judge others by wealth or resources.


View each person as a person of value, for whom Jesus died on the cross. Make a real difference. Start today.


Symbolic gestures are useless public displays of contemptuous pride. Do something real. Your actions reinforce your belief.


Be the light in your corner of the world.

As always, it's your choice. Choose wisely.


peace, roy

Through the Eyes of Jesus

I love to see people who love others like Jesus did. Didn't matter where you came from, how long you've been gone, how much baggage you carried, or how much help you needed.  Jesus loved and loves you. He viewed everyone he met as a future, if not already a follower.

I believe Jesus had an affectionate smile, immediately inviting you into a conversation with someone who would really listen. Someone who cared with the kind of rare empathy which transcended normal humanity. People who met Jesus were profoundly impacted.

Jesus had a passion for the forgotten, the folks who no one else wanted. The people who would make most 'religious' people nervous and uncomfortable. His compassion wasn't a social position. it was a deep conviction people mattered. Jesus was going to love you, it is who he was and is.

If you come from a difficult and troubled past, you were welcomed to join him.  He didn't spend timne focused on the past, but today and tomorrow. He saw the present in light of the future. He wasn't surprised by people's shattered lives. But He didn't look the other way either.

This is who Jesus was, and is.  This is who I want to be.

As always, it's your choice. Choose wisely.
