Selfishness looks first at home, but godliness seeks first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Today is my last day of sharing in all pages and blogs,  because I want to be obedient to the Lord God and He is taking me in to a new direction and I strongly believe that He is preparing my place of residence, until HE ( the Lord) give me a new instructions.
I will be driving from Los Angeles California to Florida.
 I'll be out of the blogs and pages for about 10 days, depending on how long takes the new internet company to connect me,  but I did a lot of postings and you can find them in the ARCHIVE, please visit and enjoy it, the Lord speaks to us, no matter how old are the postings, the proof is the Bible written many, many years ago, and still fresh at the time God want to use it, for the encouragement of our life's.. I hope to continue soon. 

"Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house."—Haggai 1:9.

CHURLISH souls stint their contributions to the ministry and missionary operations, and call such saving good economy; little do they dream that they are thus impoverishing themselves.

 Their excuse is that they must care for their own families, and they forget that to neglect the house of God is the sure way to bring ruin upon their own houses.

 Our God has a method in providence by which He can succeed our endeavours beyond our expectation, or can defeat our plans to our confusion and dismay; by a turn of His hand He can steer our vessel in a profitable channel, or run it aground in poverty and bankruptcy.

 It is the teaching of Scripture that the Lord enriches the liberal and leaves the miserly to find out that withholding tendeth to poverty.

 In a very wide sphere of observation, I have noticed that the most generous Christians of my acquaintance have been always the most happy, and almost invariably the most prosperous. 

I have seen the liberal giver rise to wealth of which he never dreamed; and I have as often seen the mean, ungenerous churl descend to poverty by the very parsimony by which he thought to rise. 

Men trust good stewards with larger and larger sums, and so it frequently is with the Lord; He gives by cartloads to those who give by bushels. 

Where wealth is not bestowed the Lord makes the little much by the contentment which the sanctified heart feels in a portion of which the tithe has been dedicated to the Lord. 

Selfishness looks first at home, but godliness seeks first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, yet in the long run selfishness is loss, and godliness is great gain.

 It needs faith to act towards our God with an open hand, but surely He deserves it of us; 
and all that we can do is a very poor acknowledgment of our amazing indebtedness to His goodness.
