On Memorial Day, we honor the brave men and women who gave their lives while defending our freedom and our way of life.” 

Years ago, I read in an American Legion publication about the symbols of each fold of the flag. . .that’s presented to the families of our fallen heroes.

When you read this. . .you’ll go. . .WOW.

I just love the unction of the Holy Spirit. . .how He corrects and directs at the same time.  I even have to smile at how He does it. . .in ways you least expect it.

Recently, I was reading a book. . .which I wouldn't recommend for everybody. . .that's why I'm not giving you the title.

This particular author listed three reasons he thinks people are unsuccessful.  He said people are:   # 1 lazy, # 2 stupid and # 3 they don't give a . . . . well you know that means something I’d never say.

As I read what he wrote. . .I thought. . .I'll write the seven reasons people are unsuccessful.  Suddenly, the Spirit of the Lord said: "No."

Instead, I was very clearly directed to write the "Seven Keys To Your Immediate Financial Success.  Now that's what I've done and here are the seven keys.

1.       You gotta have the right attitude about whatever you’re facing.

The measure of any person. . .Christian or heathen. . .is determined by how they respond to adversity.

A negative attitude and/or response will eventually result in failure.

A positive attitude and/or response situations will ultimately lead to success.

Failure is almost always a result of our attitude or response to unfavorable circumstances.

Wednesday, May 17th is the 137th day of 2017.

Question?  Where are you on achieving your goals and plans for this year?

Are you where you thought you'd be?  Are you where you want to be?

As I was praying for prayer requests of our ministry. . .I felt the Lord saying to me.

"Ask my children. . .if they've done their best?"

Truthfully, God already knows whether or not you've done your best.

We can fool our spouse, parents, children, employer, best friend and even our pastor but we cannot. . .let me say that again. . .we cannot fool God.

As I meditated on the matter. . .I felt led to share. . .seven reasons to do your best.

I felt promoted to look up best at dictionary.com where it is defined as:

“Of the highest quality, excellence, or standing; something or someone that is best.”

Without question, our Heavenly Father, in His compassion for us. . .gave someone of the “highest quality, excellence and standing”. . .He gave His best. . .His only begotten Son so that you and I might have life and might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).
