Psalm 14:1(NKJV)The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, There is none who does good. 2 The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. 3 They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.
Here’s a story that reflects the lives of so many who come to the Lord
Desperate for gambling money, mom took a crowbar to her husband’s locked desk drawer.
Her search for the family’s emergency funds also led her to the children’s savings bonds, which she promptly cashed in for less than their value and gambled away.
The perils of gambling in our life, like so many other addictions, can be destructive beyond human comprehension.
Dad explained to Amiyah and Avery that Mom had spent all the money again. Amiyah was in tears.
Avery simply said, ‘How could you, Mom? How can we eat? How can I play football? How can we pay the bills if you keep doing this?
Don’t you love us enough to stop? You promised! You promised, you liar!’ and I’m Tired of living like a fool, mom finally got help.
Whoever this message is for today, to God be the glory!. We were created to make it with God not without God.
Point to ponder
It’s hard to admit when I’ve been foolish, and another thing is, to be honest about how my foolishness has hurt others. But Jesus came for fools and liars. I’m thankful for that, how about you? May the Lord bless you and your family today and always!
