Stop Thinking Needs, Begin Speaking Surplus

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I was guilty of what I’m about to say. . .but not anymore.

I used to speak about what I had to have to meet this or that need.  I, unwittingly, developed a need mentality. . .which was reinforced by the words of my mouth.

I can remember totaling up bills and praying for God to meet this need of $15,000 or whatever the amount by a specific date.  When the need was met. . .I breathed a sigh of relief and, of course, gave God the glory.

However, a moment of pure revelation came to my fine wife Bev and I. . .the day we realized that we should stop thinking and speaking in terms of needs. . and begin thinking and speaking of living in surplus.

It’s real simple. . .when you live in surplus. . .you’ll never have to ask God to meet another need. . .ever again.

7 Reasons The Ungodly Prosper

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

It’s time for everyone to be totally honest.

Have you ever driven along the highway and seen other people drive by in cars much newer or nicer than yours?  Did you wonder why they have a new car when you’re driving a refuge from the salvage yard?

Have you ever ridden through a neighborhood and wondered who owns the expensive houses with the neatly manicured lawns?  Did you ever wonder how they could afford such a place. . .with the nice cars sitting in the driveway?

Have you ever wondered why some of the most ungodly people in your office dress in ways you can’t afford?

And, yes, have you ever asked God why it seems that ungodly people prosper while many of God’s children struggle to just get by?

Be honest. . .now.  Truthfully, there have been times in the past when I wondered about those things.  I think that’s why I was led to write “Seven Reasons The Ungodly Prosper.”
