SCRIPTURE

Never did he who loves money taste the enjoyment of his money.

Ecclesiastes 5:10, Knox

QUOTE

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind and the wrong kind.

~Evangelist Phil Glisson

COMMENTARY

There are only two kinds of people in the world: the happy and unhappy. Take a person who is unhappy and give them money: will the money make them happy? Like a drug, there will be a temporary high but they will sink back to their norm in time and continue to be miserable and unhappy. Solomon said, “People who love money don’t have the ability to enjoy their money” {JEV}. They don’t know how to convert the cash into joy. They refuse to spend unless it is an absolute necessity and they don’t know how to give. No one will be happy unless they learn the grace of giving. Selfish people are always unhappy.  Solomon said, “You could extend the life of an unhappy person 1,000 years and it would not help.” Joy can not be acquired by amassing wealth. Happy people live for the moment. They have learned to enjoy the now. They don’t worry about the future, they take life moment by moment, day by day. Whether they live a short life or long life is no issue because their heart is content. Content is a C-word for peace and who is the prince of peace? Loving Jesus, not money, is the key to true happiness.

EXTRA

  • I enjoy reading the Knox bible, its like reading Yoda. We begin our sentences with subjects and verbs. Knox and Yoda always began with the object. I would say, “I am happy” but Yoda would say, “Happy, am I”.
  • Wally Amos did a good job at Bill Hancock’s COLS. Bill’s earthly tabernacle was buried at Evergreen. Very close to Bro. Crawford’s grave.
  • Bob Pickens service today at Madison Chapel on highway 72 at 2:00 p.m. Visitation from 12:00-2:00.
  • Supper tonight at 5:30, AWANA 6:15, the GATHERING at 6:30. The message tonight is on Prayer and Healing.
