    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

    The man said, 'They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' ' Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

Icy Paint Buckets

  • He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much. He who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? If you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? Luke 16:10 WEB

    It was a cold day and the wind coming in off the ocean caused the paint in our buckets to have small slivers of ice floating in them. I was a new employee at this company, and we were painting a condominium right on the oceanfront during the winter, the off season.

    I worked hard, partly to just keep warm, and the rest because I try to do everything as unto the Lord: wholeheartedly. I have found that: 1) When you concentrate on your work, the day will go by faster. 2) Having an attitude that you work directly for the Lord, and that He put you here, will give your job new meaning.

    After a while, the foreman came to me and in a hushed tone, explained that I was making the rest of the crew look bad. They were doing just enough to get by, and it seemed a coordinated effort to stretch the job out as long as possible. As you can probably guess, within a month I was the foreman, and that guy was on unemployment. In time, God gave me my own business. He that can be trusted with a little, can be trusted with a lot.

    I try to work for the Lord, wherever He places me. I have pumped septic tanks, painted houses, changed transmissions, polished plumbing parts, installed servers at a data center, and written software. He would open the door, and I would step through it. If I was faithful, He promoted me, even if it meant closing that door and opening another one somewhere else.

    You can prosper wherever you are. Joseph prospered while in prison. If God put you there, work hard and keep a good attitude. It will lead to promotion or something better. How you behave at work directly reflects on the God that you serve. Be faithful in what God has given you. Work hard at it, for there will be a reward.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please give me the grace to perform my best. Equip me with the skills that I need and help me make the right decisions. Open the next door for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
