There are times in life when we have to stand up for what we know in our moral compass is right.
In our world today, with everything that is happening, you could see that our morality is being thrown away. People will rather be liked than stand up for what is right.
What about you, are you conforming with the crowd, or you have a moral compass and you stick with it. The bible clearly warns us not conform to the patterns of the world.
This serves as a reminder for those of us who may have forgotten about our morality in dealing with life’s issues, and also as a beacon of courage to anyone who is struggling with the attitude of people towards him/her for choosing to be different in a world where people are dying to conform with the crowd.

It is easy to find too many people complaining about a lack of resources, lack of opportunities to make money and become rich in life. Folks like that are always looking for help outside of themselves. They think out there, is where the inspiration and solution lies, but as John Milton tells us, “There is nothing that makes men rich and strong but that which they carry inside of them. Wealth is of the heart, not of the hand.” We can go a step further and say that wealth of the heart rightly expressed will ensure physical wealth.
The secret of all great folks is found in their vision hours. They create time intentionally to dream and visualize their desires. God told Abraham in the Bible, to visualize and dream about his future, and how big or small his vision will determine what God will grant him. I notice that too many people don’t have any vision for their lives, they don’t dream, they are just reality focused.
I remember visiting a resort, owned by a very wealthy individual. I had heard so much about the place and the owner but never met him. So during that trip, I decided to spend time in the resort’s chapel. On entering there, I was surprised to see an old man in his 80s already in there meditating and writing down his thoughts in a journal so early in the morning.

Many of us Christians are constantly searing for inspiration, principles and thoughts to help us live better, work better and relate better with others. Here are a few inspirational thoughts to help us in our daily walk.
These thoughts are not entirely mine, but gotten from the speeches and letters of Christian men and women who have lived their talk.
God has promised to satisfy—but He did not promise when. God has time enough, and so have you. God has boundless resources, and His resources are yours. Can you not trust him? Trust and wait. He knows what is best for you. He has reasons for denying you now, but in the end He will satisfy.
Life is what we are alive to. It is not length, but breadth. To be alive only to appetite, pleasure, pride, money-making, and not to goodness and kindness, purity and love, history, poetry, music, flowers, stars, God and eternal hopes, it is to be all but dead.
There is no better way to show our trust than to busy ourselves with the things He asks us to do. Trusting Him to take care of his share leaves us, “at leisure from ourselves ” to do our share of the ” Father’s business.”
Do not let the good things of life rob you of the best things.
Mystery is God’s allurement along the path of knowledge; it is his challenge to a human soul.
Decide what it is your duty to do, do it, and never regret anything that comes in its train.
“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small,”—too small to be worth talking about, for the day of adversity is its first real opportunity.
“Try it any way ” is a good motto. There is a chance that you might succeed. Even if you do not, you will be no worse off than before. Faint-hearted refusal is the worst kind of failure.
No lot in life is small enough to stunt a soul. Lowly circumstances are no bar to high thoughts.
Take care that your profession does not outrun your possession. Artificiality and hypocrisy tear character to shreds eventually.
If you do fall, if you are overcome, He is faithful and just to forgive, and to cleanse every day from all unrighteousness.
The man who never makes any mistakes never makes anything. Many chips, broken instruments, cuts and bruises, belong to the history of any beautiful statue. Persist in spite of everything.
Prayer is a breath of fresh air—much else, of course, but certainly this. It is inspiration on a hill-top for new toiling on the plain.
When I want to speak let me think first, Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? If not, let it be left unsaid.
How can we redeem society if we do not everywhere put ourselves on the constructive side of moral questions? If all people did as we do in politics, amusements, temperance, Sabbath observance, would the day be won for God or lost?
Look out for choices. They run into habit, character, and destiny.
We are like children learning to walk. We fall again and again. Sometimes we cry out; sometimes we look up and try to smile; but we do get up again and try to go on.
Size is not strength. Reputation is not character. Outward success is not God’s gauge.
God holds you responsible for your nature plus your nurture, for yourself plus your possibilities.
What have you done today that nobody but a Christian would do?
Live with the light of God’s love shining into your common day. Take old gifts and joys continued as though they were fresh gifts. So we can sing a new song unto the Lord every day.
I hope these thoughts inspire you to live right and apply God’s principles in all you do. if you are interested in learning more about how to apply Biblical principles in your business/career, or if you are faced with difficulty or adversity, and will like to discover hot to overcome them to achieve success in any area of your life. Feel free to contact me or connect with me on Facebook. I will be glad to help you live your greatest life…God’s way.
Is this life all about getting money and acquiring material success? Is there nothing better that the scramble for more money, the acquisition of assets and being ranked among the wealthiest in your neighbourhood, community, city, state, nation or the world?
Is there nothing better more valuable to struggle for? Surely there’s as the bible says a good name is better than many riches. Unfortunately our schools and today’s culture have taught us to focus on developing this coarse side of man, while the God-side, the moral remains underdeveloped.
Economists, statisticians and analysts have been be able to estimate the assets and liabilities of individuals to come up with their net worth but no one has been able to estimate the real wealth that inheres in fine character, and a well refined life which brings love, joy, and peace into every home and person it encounters wherever it goes.
It is really amazing to find men and women both young and old pay such a huge price for things that are not worth the while, then they throw away the valued and lasting ones, in their quest for that which will fade and perish. Continue reading You Are Not Here to Only Make a Living→
The bible says, “better is the end of a thing than its beginning….” Consider that statement and think why will the bible say that, when beginnings are always celebrated in our world? It’s common to find people celebrate their beginning of a blog, their beginning of an exercise class, their business start up, and you look for these individuals some months, years later and you don’t find them.
The author of that bible portion clearly understands that it is not enough to begin a journey; you must continue it. Mere enrolment into school or an academic program doesn’t make one a scholar; the student must continue in the school through the long course until he/she masters every aspect of the program. Success depends on the staying power. The reason for failure in most cases is lack of perseverance. We quit too soon.
Too often you hear people complain that their business or career is a failure simply because they didn’t have the immediate riches or fame they had expected, and you find them leaving one occupation or business to another that looks more promising.
This is very common in network marketing business. People don’t want to put in the time required to get the results. They are always jumping from one company to another, and in most cases the new business isn’t more satisfactory than the previous one, and it in turn gives way for another.

“…yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:14
Friend life is lived in the present. There is no moment like the present. Never put off living or doing something until tomorrow because it is often much difficult and stressful to do the work that has been put off! “Now is the only time that we have. It is our only negotiable currency. Yesterday is a cancelled check. Tomorrow is a promissory note. It is only today that we may spend in the noble effort of using all the gifts that God gave us.”
