THE RELIGION CORNER: Being More Enlightened About Your Self-Interest

Each of us must work while its day, for Scripture reminds us that when night cometh, no man can work. It does not mean night as when you lay down to sleep. This “night” that Scripture is speaking of means when you have come to the end of this journey.

We must work in this early life, to survive. Unfortunately, if you don’t work to care for yourself and your family, you could end up homeless. Therefore, we all work in order to survive.

There are those of you out there who are working to survive, but you wonder if you can be successful doing what you really love. You are not satisfied to work only to survive. We want to succeed and survive — and yes, that can be done! It’s done by millions of people around the world, every day, and you can be one of them.

Life was not designed to give us what we need. It gives it to us because we deserve it. It’s called sowing and reaping. Reaping is reserved only for the planters. Can you expect corn to grow in your field if you didn’t plant any? No, only weeds will show up!

Scripture tells us to knock and the door shall be opened. If you keep knocking, you’ll find opportunity. This is a biblical principle.

Scripture says seek and you shall find. If you search, you will surely find what you’re looking for. You’ve got to go out looking to find whatever you wish. If you search you will find, ask, someone has the answer you’re seeking.

Begin the process of deserving. Ask yourself, “what must I do to deserve it?” When you do that, expect a new life to emerge. Ways to bring your dream to fruition will appear, it will be spoken into your spirit.

Ways will come to you about how to earn $20. You will begin to say to yourself, what I can do to earn $20 is clear.

Figure out how to open this unbelievable flow of wisdom, which comes from our Heavenly Father, by sending his Holy Spirit. You will be able to take your seed to the marketplace, not your need. Your seed will begin small, but if you care for seeds properly, what do they do? They grow!

Of course, you’ve got to bring your interest, your enthusiasm and your vitality, too. Scripture says, “If you wish to receive, you must give.” We deserve the receiving, but Scripture says, it is better to give than to receive. Why?

Giving starts the receiving process. But it is called the Law of Deserving.

Find a way to serve many. Just know that when you provide service to many, it is the beginning of greatness. Help solve other people’s problems. A personal example is my health workshops. So far, hundreds of people have completed my type 2 diabetes training classes. Giving free knowledge, by sharing in this column and sharing on my radio show turned out to be seeds that I had planted. The principle worked for me too. Now I’m reaping my harvest.

Be faithful when your opportunity comes along with only a few. That gets you ready to rule over many. If you want a fortune, you must know where it all goes, even when it’s small. Scripture says, “Be faithful over a few things, and I will make you ruler over many.”

Be disciplined even when the amounts are small. You never know who’s in the audience. Even when it is a few, tell your best stories. Give yourself time to change. Refine your thinking, your beliefs. Become extremely clear on your own philosophy. That way, you will not be easily influenced to change your mind and do something different.
