Smiling is infectious; you catch it like the flu When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin When he smiled I realised I'd passed it on to him I thought about that smile then I realised its worth, A single smile, just like mine, could travel round the earth. So, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected, Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!
Enjoy some Holy Hour Humour and Smile
There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments." answered the lady. Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning." Give me a sense of humor, Lord, Give me the grace to see a joke, To get some humor out of life, And pass it on to other folk!
"The thief's only purpose in coming is to steal, to slaughter and destroy. (Jesus said) I have come so they may have life and have it abundantly" - John 10:10 ++ A successful American by the name of Jeff Johnson teaches about wealth and gives training on how to obtain it at his site: http://www.abundantwealth.com. He also provides factual answers to two insigntful questions :
Q1. Is Abundant Wealth a religious organization? A. Many of the principles we teach are found in the Bible. We make reference to many scriptures throughout our website and in our educational materials. These scriptures form the foundation of what we teach. There are many financial teachings in the Bible and they have been used by the wealthy for thousands of years. There are many scriptures that favor money and they teach us, for example, about borrowing, lending, giving, and interest. There are also many teachings on what not to do, like not to love money. The Bible does not teach us that it is wrong to be wealthy, in fact, the Bible teaches us how to prosper. We believe wealth encompasses both spiritual and financial aspects. We will address issues such as tithing and giving as we believe this is an important part of any overall wealth building plan. Take a moment to think about the wealthiest people you know. Now ask yourself, do they give their time and money to others? Yes! Giving is an integral part of the wealthy person.
Q2. I just inherited a great deal of money. How could this help me? A. History has taught us those who are given or inherit money are at a high risk of 'spending it away' and in ending right back in the same financial situation in a few short years. There are many high profile athletes or lottery winners whom at one time had literally millions that end up in financial distress or even bankruptcy. What if these people had known the financial rules of the wealthy and applied those rules when they had those millions? They would be more wealthy than they could imagine, and think of the blessings their community lost out on, all because they didn't know what to do. There is a huge difference between rich and wealthy. The lottery winner is rich for a period, and whether he becomes wealthy or poor depends on what he does with the lottery winnings.
NOTE: Many people believe in the saying that 'Charity begins at home', but the church teaches that we should always be charitable towards others who are less fortunate than ourselves.
A well-known spiritual saying states – "Give, and you shall receive in abundance" - so if you are rich or become wealthy do not forget to start to give and a place you could go to is at : http://www.kiva.org where for a small sum of money you will add to the wellbeing of a family that needs help in a third-world country.
