MYOB! 7/9/17
MYOB! 7/9/17



Proverbs 25:17 (KJV)
17  Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.

Proverbs 24:21 (KJV)
21  My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

MEDDLE-a primitive root; to braid , i.e. intermix ; technical to traffic  (as if by barter); also to give or be security  (as a kind of exchange) :- engage, (inter-) meddle (with), mingle (self), mortgage, occupy, give pledges, be (-come, put in) surety, undertake.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Why do we MEDDLE in other people's business??

Did not our mama's teach us- MYOB!!!!

WE interject ourselves in many things that we have no clue of what or how to do/fix and too often, UN-invited.

I have long preached the saga of the young Western Union new hire.

On his first day of work, he was assigned a desk, chair, pen and paper, and telephone.

His stated instructions for his job was to sit there all day until and IF he received instructions otherwise.

Break time arrived at 10:15 AM with no furthers instruction.

Soon after he enjoyed his hour long lunch break.

Then came the afternoon break and finally, toward the end of his shift, he could not stand the suspense any longer-he called his boss.

Loudly he complained, "I have sat here all day with little or nothing to do-WHAT is my job/WHAT am I here for????? 


His employer patiently explained simply, "I told you that when and IF I needed you, I would call you!!!

Jesus further illustrated this principle in His parable of the pounds:

Luke 19:13 (KJV)
13  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

OCCUPY-from <G4229> (pragma); to busy oneself with, i.e. to trade :- occupy.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

To put in simply, IF God needs you, He will let you know!!!

I like what a dear sister told my son Joshua,

"Today, I told God I was going shopping-IF You need me, I will be there!"

From THE FREE DICTIONARY:

"Too many cooks (spoil the broth).

Something that you say which means that if too many people try to work on the same piece of work, they will spoil it.

There were so many people working on the same project, no one knew what anyone else was doing.

I think it was a case of too many cooks."

Here are a few more:

"ALL HAT AND NO CATTLE!


GOD DOES INDEED HAVE A PLAN AND PURPOSE!!

WHEN and IF God needs OUR service, He will let us know.

I even hear John Osteen quote Joyce Myers last week:

" IF you miss God, don't worry!!! HE will find you!!"

And, as the old song rightly declares,

" HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS."

God has got OUR world "IN HIS HANDS."

TODAY, take a break!!

YOU ARE NOT "Atlas-the god who carried "The Weight of the World"

WE cannot BE everywhere, DO everything, FIX all nor SAVE all!!

TODAY, may we all say with the Apostle Paul:

Ephesians 6:13 (KJV)
13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

" HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND!!!"

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!!

GOD BLESS YOU!
