What’s the matter? Why does it always pick up, then slow down, and then pick up again? My emotions, that’s what I’m trying to talk about here. Why can’t they be in one place? Why do they have to run around like a yo-yo? One day it’s “Yes, please, I will take two of each,” the next it’s “Absolutely not, this is disgusting.” My PA, Anna, has won so much from me because, she said, “Ma’am, for every time you say ‘terrible’ or ‘disgusting,’ I get one dollar.” In one day, she made $20.
I’ve got to watch what I say, especially when being around her. I’m not sure how much I owe now, but it should be a tidy sum when I’m expected to pay. Not sure, but I will have to somehow.
Have you ever sat down and thought of a wealthy and powerful friend, business acquaintance, or relation and thought to yourself, “That’s the one I need. He’s going to be my ticket out of all these money issues I’m in.” Not that I don’t have any, I just need a lot more to invest in some projects.
Come on, it’s not rocket science. You always invest in a business with other people’s money, but make sure you are not cheated out of your wonderful business idea.
It’s not fair. You know, I was working it out in my head, why is it that atheists and unbelievers have tons of money, and us churchgoing, Jesus-loving born-again Christians don’t have two pennies to rub together most of the time. Well, I found out why.
God said in his word Deuteronomy 28:12, “The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations, but borrow from none…”
Now, notice the key word here, “bless the work of your hands.” Which means you have to work on something for it to be blessed. Remember the faithful servants in the Bible to whom the master gave talents, and two invested but one buried it. What happened? The one who buried his talent had it taken from him and given to the one who had multiplied his.
God is talking to you here. What have you done lately with all that God has given you? All you complain about is “no money, no money.” I am telling you today, not all businesses need money to start. You can provide a service and get paid for it.
Well, I know Christians, born again, who just fast and pray for days and weeks and ask God to bring millions into their bank account.
I have good news for you. You will not get any fat added to you from fasting all the time, but you will also not get a dime added to your bank account from not working with your hands.
God said, “I will provide all your needs.” That’s why you are still alive. You eat maybe once or twice a day, breathe, etc., but as for your wants, you’ve got to go out there and get it.
Okay, people, enough of my carrying on. I’ve got a meeting now. I will be right back.
