Only 2 Emotions

All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by one of two emotions - Fear or Love. In truth there are only two emotions - only two words in the language of the soul.

Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, Love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and cluthes all that we have, Love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, Love holds dear. Fear graps, Love lets go. Fear rankles, Love soothes. Fear attacks, Love amends.

Write it down

So, i use to go to Church and see people with note pads and paper and pens taking notes like this was a a finals review in college. I use to think, dang they are serious with it, is it that imporant? I can remember all this without writing it down. But comes to show i now am also serious with it. Taking notes actually helps. I mean there is no way to retain and remember all that is said in one sermon. It also helps when you want to recall on something that was said. It also douments things. There so much to learn. So baiscally this post is to encourage you to take notes in Church...

After all this is the biggest and most important lecture that you could get! A Lecture straight out the BIBLE!

Simple enough

Matthew 6:33

...But seek FIRST HIS KINGDOM and his righteousness, and ALL these THINGS will be GIVEN to YOU as well....

We hear this all the time, we see it all the time, we somtimes even repeat it, allll the time... But do we really practice it? Alot of people wonder how come they dont have everything they want, how come their not rich, successful, married, etc... Its all because we dont follow Matthew 6:33...

I was in Church yesterday and it just hit me... Ive prolly heard this verse more then 20 times but never really heard it...

Its so Simple that we over look it and take it for granted... I have to do better, I hope i can encourage you to do the same....
