Jack’s Winning Words 4/17/15
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”  (Steve Jobs)  God, in his wisdom, gave us free-will, allowing us to make personal decisions, for better or worse.  He gives advice as to the best choices.  He might “nudge” us from time to time; and he’s also there to offer help when things don’t go well.  I wonder if this might be an example for us to follow when we are concerned about someone who is close to us?  “Let us love as he has loved.”    ;-)  Jack 

FROM TARMART REV:  Sounds like good advice for Pentecostal and Lutheran brothers of the faith!!====JACK:  My opinion...In the past, religious groups (Christian and others) have spent too much time and effort pointing out their differences, rather than emphasizing the beliefs that they have in common. 

FROM GOOD DEBT JON:  My cup runneth over (with blessings), lots of great stuff happening. ====JACK:  David wrote Ps 23:5 after the Starbucks server poured too much coffee in his cup.

FROM PASTY PAT:  Oh wow --- perfect timing --- thank you!====JACK:  God seems to know when certain things should happen.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  Time seems to go faster every year.  We must use the gifts God gave now and relish each day!  That's so easy to say today because it's beautiful today.  We must find the beauty in everyday not just the sunny ones!====JACK:   Our desire for "control" even extends sometime to the desire to telling him, in our prayers, what to do.  I like the prayer request, "Thy will be done."

FROM TAMPA SHIRL:  I figure that God has a plan for all of us.  So we have to just do the best we can every day-to be helpful and kind.  And to enjoy each day and to make the best decisions that we can.  By the way, the Steve Jobs biography is one of the best books that I have read in the last few years.  My grandchildren, though, tell me that they enjoyed his life on TV.====JACK:  God's plan for us includes giving us the freedom to make personal decisions and to ne responsible for them.  The safety net is "grace."
