  • Plant a little gossip & you will reap a harvest of regret.The idea some people have of keeping a secret is lowering their voices when they tell it.At no time is a little knowledge more dangerous than when you are using it to start a rumor.I will speak ill of no man, not even in a matter of truth, but rather excuse the fault I hear, &, upon proper occasions, speak all the good I know of everybody.--Benjamin FranklinGossip is like mud thrown on a clean wall. It may not stick but it always leaves a dirty mark.Believe not half you hear; repeat not half you believe; when you hear an evil report, halve it, then quarter it, & say nothing about the rest of it.One of the easiest habits for any human being to acquire is the habit of criticizing others. --Spiros ZodhiatesYou have to be little to belittle.ON CRITICISM & GOSSIP:Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

    Matthew 12:36-37

  • The secret of financial success is to spend what you have left after saving, instead of saving what you have left after spending.Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure & trouble therewith ( Pro.15:16 ).When you can't pay bills, you gotta cut the frills!The fact is, the moment financial stability is assured, spiritual bankruptcy is also assured.--Mahatma GandhiWhen money talks, the truth is silent.If your outgo exceeds your income, then your upkeep will be your downfall.Pretending to be rich keeps many people poor.The Lord is very generous, but He's also a penny-pincher & wants to make sure every one of His pennies count!It's wrong, dishonest & a sin to borrow money you know you can't pay back!Debts are unscriptural!ON FINANCES:A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

    Psalm 36:16

  • Let us realise that what happens around us is largely outside our control, but that the way we choose to react to it is inside our control. Life is a voyage in which we choose neither vessel nor weather, but much can be done in the management of the sails & the guidance of the helm.Some of God's future is set, but within the range of that future, God has many options, some of which we can change by our decisions.The Lord is trying to teach you to make decisions, & one of the main principles involved in reaching a decision is: Don't start talking--pray! The main reason we're here in the first place is to learn how to make decisions under God's guidance, from the Garden of Eden to the present.ON CHOICE & DECISION MAKING:In all thy ways acknowledge Him, & He shall direct thy paths.

    Proverbs 3:6

  • Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.The art of dying bravely & with honor does not need any special training save a living faith in God.--M. Gandhi. If the thought of your eternity makes you uncomfortable, then something is wrong with your present!God conceals from men the happiness of death that they may endure life. If you're a Christian & love the Lord, God has appointed a time & a place for you to die when your job is done! God will be our guide, even unto death! ( Ps.48:14 ) It is not death that man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.Jesus is the only One Who ever rose from the dead Who can give you power to do the same!

    ON DEATH:Jesus said unto her, I am the Resurrection, & the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    John 11:25,26.

  • Life hereafter for us, God's children, will be an extension or an amplification, a multiplication of the joy and thrilling, exciting lives we now lead!Hell is the extension, multiplication, amplification, endless continuation of the same awful lives that the wicked people of the world lead even now!One of these days you're going to a mansion that isn't going to cost you anything!--No upkeep, no expense, absolutely nothing except what it's already cost Jesus!--And it will be commensurate with your works on Earth, what you already paid for it down here.Heaven's the place where all your heart's desires are fulfilled! Put in your order! I'm sure the Lord will be glad to have anything there for you that you want!Hell is just the opposite of the ecstasies of life in Heaven for the saved and the blessed!ON HEAVEN & HELL:And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    Revelation 21:2
