7 Reasons Why You Should Be A Generous Tipper

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Are you a thief?  Do you steal from people while eating at restaurants?

I’m not taking about silverware, napkins or anything that belongs to the restaurant. . .but whether or not you’re stealing from your server.

Malachi 3:5 in the Message Bible says:

“Yes, I’m on my way to visit you with Judgment. I’ll present compelling evidence against sorcerers, adulterers, liars, those who exploit workers, those who take advantage of widows and orphans, those who are inhospitable to the homeless—anyone and everyone who doesn’t honor me.”

If you do not tip the proper amount (18%) then you are exploiting the worker (server).

God Has A Christmas Miracle For You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Every time I read Luke 1:46-48. . .I get fired up about the things of God.

“And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name.”

Mary is praising God. . .giving Him all glory and honor for the great things He has done for her.

Why did God do great things for Mary?

Because she was obedient. . . when it wasn’t convenient.

Seven Keys To 2013 Being Your Year Of Unfulfilled Promises...FULFILLED

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I ask the Lord if He had a word for His people for 2013 and His answer ignited in my spirit.

It was 5:39 in the morning when God dropped the number 13 in my spirit.

I don’t believe in luck. . .so I don’t believe 13 is an unlucky number.

I asked our Heavenly Father to reveal the reason He stirred the number 13 in my spirit.

7 Things To Do When Your Star Leads You To A Stable

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I remember years ago, traveling to the mountains of North Carolina with my fine wife Bev and my parents for a long weekend get-away.

We started looking for a hotel room and were unable to fine one for over 60 miles along Interstate 40. 

The clerk at the first hotel we stopped at told us that we would have a problem finding accommodations.  He informed us that the annual Furniture Market was taking place in High Point, North Carolina and there wasn’t a sleeping room to be found within 60 miles in any direction of that huge event.  We found out he was right.

This particular journey was before the days of cell phones and computers.  If you wanted to call ahead you use a pay phone.  We stopped at exit after exit only to hear the same message. . .there was no room in the inn  . . . Holiday or otherwise.

We had the money but there was a room to be found.  At least, my fine wife Bev wasn’t about to give birth.

7 Keys To Praying In A Financial Miracle

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Need a financial miracle?  The wrong place to look for answers and direction is Google Search.

I did a search on “how to pray for financial miracles.”

The first reference was an ad offering me a miracle prayer cloth.

I believe in prayer cloths. . .I have given them away in times past and may even do so again because Paul gave them away in the book of Acts when the anointing was strong.  However, I don’t think a prayer cloth is the first key to your miracle.

I’m not a big proponent of reverse motivation or psychology.

I like the direct. . .and yes, always the positive approach to every situation.

Except. . .this time.

7 Ways To Be Truly Happy

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Happiness is an outward expression of an inner work.

Matthew 5:4 in the Amplified Bible says:

“Blessed and enviably happy [with a happiness produced by the experience of God's favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace] are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!”

Your happiness. . .depends on what you do and how you respond to what happens to you.

For people to be truly happy. . .there must be an inner realization of the mental and spiritual commitments they’ve made to be more than what they are. . .do more than what they’ve already done. . .and bless more than they thought imaginable.

Here are seven ways for you to be truly happy.
