7 Things Philippians 2:3 Says Not To Do

Written by Harold Herring.

I have a dear friend. . .a brilliant man. . .who is, in fact, a member of the Mensa Society, with an IQ of over 120.

In the midst of any conversation. . .whether about politics, people or ideas. . .he is prone to say. . . “Let’s get this conversation back where it belongs. . .on me.”

For my friend, the statement is just a way of having fun. . .or re-directing the conversation but it doesn’t have to be on him. . .he isn’t self-centered in the least.

However, we do live in a “me” society.

“What’s in it for me?”

“What difference does this matter to me?”

“How will this benefit me?”

How To Be A Perfect 10

Written by Harold Herring.

Success is an attitude.  Success is a habit.  Success is a lifestyle.  Success is easily available to anyone who wants it...believes they can have it...works for it...never gives up and always... trusts God...through thick and thin.

Remember, faith is personified by being faithful.

Success happens inside you before it ever happens around you.  There is a defining moment when you decide to take control of your own life and embrace the success God wants you to achieve.

Age, education, money, background and childhood experiences do not matter in the face of these principles.

Joshua spent twenty years preparing for his divine destiny…his success as a leader for the Children of Israel. In the life and book of Joshua there are ten success secrets that Joshua found were critical to his future and they are critical to your future too.

1st Step—See your goal

Make Today And Tomorrow...Your Best Days Ever

Written by Harold Herring.

One of my favorite signs says:

“Good morning! I’ll be handling all your problems today. So relax and enjoy your day. Love, God. P.S. I love you.”

Someone once said:

“Do not face the day, until you have faced God in prayer.”

When you woke up this morning. . .did you expect this to be your best day ever?

What is your expectation for the day? Is it different than yesterday or the day before?

Do you have any expectation for today or are you just glad that you made it through another night?

Do you expect to feel better today than you did yesterday? And, more importantly, did you expect to feel better today?

Do you expect God to move in the lives of your loved ones?

Do you see it as a day filled with previously unknown opportunities where you can tap into previously unused potential?

If You Fight. . .You'll Win

Written by Harold Herring.

Would it surprise you to know that there is a difference between winning and being a winner?

You can win a contest. . .the lottery. . .an athletic event. . .a prize. . .but still not be a winner.

Winning is an occurrence. It’s something that happens today, this week, this year and then it’s gone.

In fact, if you study the history of people who won the lottery. . .you will discover few people were actually big winners in life. . .regardless of the mega millions they won by having a winning ticket.

Being a winner is a state of mind. . .regardless of what happens or the outcome of any particular contest or endeavor.

A winner is someone who recognizes they’re fighting for something noble. . . someone who refuses to quit. . . and who will never give up until they win or accomplish their goal or calling.

You and I were created to be winners in the game of life. Yet, we face an adversary who is dedicated to our defeat. However, God instructs us to fight the good fight of faith. . .because we’re more than conquerors. . .who can overcome every attack of the enemy.

As I was pondering this. . .I went to www.biblegateway.com and looked up “good fight” and the first reference that pulled up was 1 Timothy 1:18 in the New International Version of the Bible:

“Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight.”

The word good is the Greek word kalos (G2570) which means:

You Lose. . .When You Freak Out

Written by Harold Herring.

Many people today are freaking out because of what’s happening around them and in the world.

The impeachment of President Donald Trump is both a media and political circus but not the good kind.

Adolf Hitler once said: “If you tell a lie often enough people will believe it.”

When asked how to tell if a politician is lying. . .the author and humorist Mark Twain said:

“If their lips are moving. . .they’re probably lying.”

Anyhow the impeachment proceedings are causing way too many people, on both sides of the issue. . .to freak out.

People are also freaking about the possibility of a worldwide pandemonium caused by a virus coming out of China

2020: A Year Of Miracle Manifestation

Written by Harold Herring.

Are things in your life better or different than they on January 1, 2020?

If not, why not or more importantly. . .are you willing to do something about it?

2 Thessalonians 1:11 in the New Living Translation says:
