Leave Nothing But Footprints! 9/14/16
Leave Nothing But Footprints! 9/14/16







Proverbs 30:15-16 (KJV)
15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:

16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.

Greetings from lovely Foley, AL. I believe this will be my last post from here this year!!??

We we "supposed" to be leaving tomorrow BUT the Pastor and his wonderful wife extended a GRACIOUS invitation to stay the weekend as well.

But we must go home-time to go back to the "real world!"

Sad to leave such lovely company and wonderful Church FAMILY.

The writer of Proverbs remarked:

"There are three things that ARE NEVER SATISFIED, yea, four things say not IT IS ENOUGH...."

1)-THE GRAVE

2)-THE BARREN WOMB

3)-THE EARTH THAT IS FILLED WITH WATER

4)-THE FIRE THAT SAITH NOT, IT IS ENOUGH

Rarely, in this life, do men and women declare "I AM SATISFIED" or "IT IS ENOUGH!"

It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to eat ONE potato chip or ONE Krispy Kreme Doughnut!!!

I have now eaten 6 SEAFOOD DINNERS plus TWO seafood PO-Boys and cannot declare "I AM SATISFIED," and/or "IT IS ENOUGH!"

I well know that upon leaving this paradise I will not be able to obtain the same quality, taste or freshness of this place.

I am NOT hungry nor do I need to eat another SEAFOOD PLATTER, but.............

I find it hard to declare I have HAD enough!!

I still got two more days here...........

I read this past week "in the news?" about a certain MULTI-MILLIONAIRE and politician who is ACCUSED of funneling MILLIONS of taxpayer money to his daughter's "charity."

I find that odd and interesting that he or she would even think about MO' MONEY!!??

WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH!!!???

How many MILLIONS of dollars does it take to make one feel happy and/or secure???

Why does one keep running for higher and higher office?????

James wrote:

James 4:2 (KJV)
2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

LUST- from <G1909> (epi) and <G2372> (thumos); to set the heart upon, i.e. long for (rightfully or otherwise) :- covet, desire, would fain, lust (after).

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

We "LUST AND HAVE NOT!"

WE lust for more and more, not NEED!!!!

James 4:3 (KJV)
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

That is a MOUTHFUL/A SAD INDICTMENT on us all:

James 4:3 (KJV)
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

"that ye MAY CONSUME IT UPON YOUR LUSTS!!"

Did not Jesus say?

Luke 6:38 (KJV)
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Did not the wise Apostle write:

Acts 20:35 (KJV)
35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

"IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE!!!!"

What part of this TRUTH do WE fail to BELIEVE and/or understand?

There are numerous signs on the beach here that wisely proclaim:

"LEAVE NOTHING BUT FOOTPRINTS!"

Is this not a WISE life choice also???

"ONLY ONE LIFE TWILL SOON BE PAST

ONLY THE THINGS DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST!"

"We only go round once," we only get one shot at each passing day.

Jesus said:

Luke 12:15 (KJV)
15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

Paul wrote it all when he declared:

Philippians 4:18 (KJV)
18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

Are YOU there??

Are YOU at the place where YOU can declare:

Philippians 4:18 (KJV)
18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

Philippians 4:11-12 (KJV)
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

How many SEAFOOD PLATTERS will it take for me to finally declare "I AM FULL!!??"

How many degrees, promotions, wealth, fame, power, possessions will it take for US to finally say:

Philippians 4:18 (KJV)
18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

BUT we "OUGHT TO SAY......."

James 4:15 (KJV)
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

TODAY, dearly beloved, may WE seek to "LEAVE NOTHING BUT FOOTPRINTS!"

Let US look to "BE ABOUT MY FATHER'S BUSINESS!!"

Luke 2:49 (KJV)
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

REMEMBER:

Acts 20:35 (KJV)
35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

"IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE!!!!"

GOD BLESS YOU!
