Prayer For REVIVAL in America

SCRIPTURE

“Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

~Luke 12:15, NLT

QUOTE

Greed is based on the mathematical truism that the more you get, the more you have. [It is a lie from the pits of hell, don’t believe it!]

~Frederick Buechner

COMMENTARY

The St. Louis Cardinals offered slugger Albert Pujols 200 million over 10 years and he turned it down because he wanted to make more than Alex Rodriguez so he jumped ship and signed with the L.A. Angels for 240 Million over 10 years. At St. Louis he would have been an icon, possibly overshadowing the likes of Stan the man Musial but not now. You never hear his name mentioned anymore. He has had two dismal seasons with the Angels after never having one bad season in Cardinal red. June is a big Cardinal fan and as you know, they have not missed a beat. They won Friday in the 13th and again yesterday. What on earth was Albert thinking? He will never earn the 240 million; matter of fact he may be joining Rodriguez very shortly as a “has been.” By the way.,the average major league player makes 3.3 million per year. I think we could manage on that salary, what about you?

EXTRA

Our phone message system is not operational: we will try to get it restored next week. Our ice machine in the FORTE is also not working so don’t depend on it for ice. We’ve been getting ice at Dollar General for three weeks. Usually and can get it jump started but I have had no success this time. Deacons meeting at 8:00, LCBS at 9:00 and possibly again at 10:15. I will explain tomorrow LORD willing. Ivan and Katrina spent the night with us. I think I let them drink too much caffeine yesterday. I know why Joe David goes to the games: you can’t watch one with them two making racket.
