It's amazing how people who call themselves Believers reason. Sometime ago, I met a man in a restaurant who ordered for a meal that was beyond the money he had with him. After eating, he began to blame the government for making things hard for the masses; somehow I knew he was trying a play a game. When it was time to pay, he gave the restauranteur the money he had and promised to pay the balance later.
I got really upset and told the man that he is manipulating his Christian faith – in the name of poor government. The government may be poor, but the Bible didn't tell us to eat on credit. Just because we have access to credit doesn't mean we should take credits. As a matter of scriptures, it's discontentment to spend beyond what we have. He had enough money to eat and be satisfied, but he chose to eat and live a dissatisfied life. Yes, that's what taking credit does; it adds dissatisfaction into satisfaction. Now don't get me wrong; I'm not saying it's wrong to take credits, but that we should ensure we're not manipulating God's word just to justify our actions.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS. BUT IF WHAT IS SUPPLIED ISN'T ENOUGH TO GET WHAT YOU WANT, THEN CUT WHAT YOU WANT TO FIT WHAT IS SUPPLIED. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
