Pulls

So do you ever have more month than money?  If you do you know that it causes no little stress and if you are like me you are looking for ways to correct the imbalance.  So with that in mind I listened to a webinar this morning on investment strategies that promised to reveal the secrets of the “mega-rich.”  It was an hour of financial information, charts, graphs, history lessons.  All very convincing and in my understanding an accurate portrayal of the state of the economy and what is probably going to happen, bottom line – not good.
The worries of the world will choke out the effectiveness of the Word of God in our lives.
Then came the pitch.  For the low price of around $600 you could get access to all of the data and strategies to turn your financial fortunes around and enter into the right side of the major wealth transfer that is about to take place.  Only have three days to make a decision.

In Mark 4:19 – 20, Jesus is explaining the parable of the soils.  He says here that worries, deceitfulness of riches, and the desire for other things choke the Word of God and make it unfruitful for us.  We have to live in this world; but it is not our home.  We have to live on the economy; but it is not to be our focus.

My focus is to pour out my life for the sake of the Gospel and the chosen.  So at the end of the presentation, I went out and mowed the yard and came back in and prepped for some Bible studies.

  1. Mike,

    Interesting that you were given three days to make up your mind about the pitch you watched.

    The Bible says "be ye prepared at all times (in your heart and in your mind) for the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night"!! What? No time to make up our mind? What about a soulback guarantee???

    1. Yeah, well it did not take three days to make the decision.

      We do have time to make a decision for Christ, now. But, you are right, the time is not unlimited.
