What’s Your Outlook?

What is your outlook on life? With what mind-set do you approach life? You see, how we approach life is an personal and individual choice, and nobody or nothing can make us miserable if we decide we are going to be happy. Will you be positive and expect the best or discontented and discouraged because everything didn’t go as planned?

The choice is yours.

Read and Obey

We all know that there is a difference between reading directions and following directions. Or, to use biblical terminology, there is a difference between hearing or reading the Word and obeying the Word. The next time you read the Word, read it for the purpose of learning how to walk in God’s ways. When you do, you will realize that reading and obeying the Word is the recipe for God’s blessings.
