A Year of Joy

A Year Of Joy…

When my father was a child, growing up his father would take him out to a restaurant, he would go around to other tables, pretend to be poor, and beg for their food.

When his father caught him doing that, he wasn’t happy at all. He was embarrassed. To have your son going around begging as a pauper, isn’t a good reflection on your family, or on your fatherhood.

It’s the same way for God and you. If you’re born again, you’re a child of God. If you live, as if you’re empty, desperate, needing to get your fill from the world, from the media, from material things, even from the approval of others, then you’re a child of God living as beggar.

It’s an embarrassment to heaven. Get filled up at your Father’s table. Everything you need is right there. Then if you want to go to the other tables, to the world, then go, but not to beg, but to give and bless. For a child of God is born not to beg, but to bless.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:1

Today, seek to be independent of them Be filled by directly from Him. And rejoice in the fact that you’re not a beggar, but a child of the Most High.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
