Re: Chaplains Corner
I truly appreciate th amount of support I have received as Chaplain of TFF. It means a lot to me, guys, and is just the impetus I need to continue these messages each morning.
Many folks seem to get themselves into trouble on a regular basis. Most of the trouble we are in is of our own doing, actually. We are broke because we did not plan for a future rainy day, we are sick because we did not take good enough care of ourselves, our marriage is not good because we failed to put the proper time and effort into it, our job is unsatisfying because we never spent the time needed get into a career we could enjoy, and so on.
Are you good at getting yourself into trouble? Today, let's look at some old proverbs on the topic of 'trouble':
Proverbs 15:16 (KJV);
"Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith."
Proverbs 13:17 (KJV);
"A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health."
Proverbs 15:6 (NCV);
"Much wealth is in the houses of good people, but evil people get nothing but trouble."
And now let's look at some NEW proverbs on getting into trouble:
There is an upside to always having your foot in your mouth; at least you are able to make ends meet.
It's better to sleep on something before doing it, than to do it wrong and stay awake worrying about it.
The trouble with being a grouch is that you have to make new friends every few months.
So what do you plan to do about it? If you find yourself in trouble, and just keep up the same old actions that brought you to this state, where do you think you will be tomorrow? Remember that one definition of insanity is to perform the same actions, over and over, and expect to get different results. If you don’t like where you are AT, then change what you are doing.
God Bless each and every one of you, guys -
