DESIRE TO BE FAITHFUL, NOT TO BE FAMOUS - 2


Welcome! Donna Reed once canceled his group of students: "When you handle yourself, use your head, when you handle others, use your heart."

Our Daily Manna Devotionals August 30 2017


 A mafia godfather accompanied by his lawyer walked into a room to meet with his former accountant. The godfather asked the accountant: "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me? The accountant refused to answer! The godfather asked again: "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?" The lawyer interrupted: "Sir, the man is a deaf mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you." The god father said, "well, ask him where my damn money is! The lawyer, using the sign language, asked the accountant where the three million dollars was. The accountant signed back: "I don't know what you are talking about."

The lawyer interpreted to the godfather: "He doesn't know what you are talking about." The godfather pulled out a 9 millimeter pistol, put it to the temple (brain) of the accountant signed back, "Ok! Ok! Ok! The money is hidden in a brown suitcase behind the shed in my backyard." The godfather said: "Well, what did he say?" The lawyer interpreted to the godfather: "He says 'Go to hell', and you don't have the guts to pull the trigger." Of course you don't have to be told what the godfather did thereafter, but the emphases of this story was the motive if the lawyer!


BASIC SCRIPTURE: 2 KINGS 2: 1-15


He wanted to gain from the two men at the same time! He wanted the accountant dead and of course legally, the godfather did not know where the money was, except the lawyer! When men's lawyers begin to become liars, then there is a scarcity of faithful men on earth! As faithful and truthful men are getting fewer, then you must ask God to make you different! Never forget that champions pursue faithfulness and not fame!

The only prayer that God refuse to answer for me is: "LORD, use me mightily for your work but don't allow me to become famous!" Elisha was faithful to Elijah even when the going was rough and he got a double power portion! Did Elisha not become famous later? Be loyal to your family, friends and be true to humility, even if it hurts! Never forget what Donna Reed said: When you handle yourself, use your head, when you handle others, use your heart."  Wherever you are, be true! Be faithful! God is your paymaster!
