Matthew 13:12

Matthew 13:12 “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

I found something interesting I wrote almost 19 years ago. So I was a little more “foul-mouthed” more often back then, but I also wrote constantly.

Once in awhile, I wrote something that was “pretty good” IF it’s the sort of something the person reading was looking for.

So just a few minutes ago I found this. I wrote it in November of 2001 in reply to a post Doc (Dr. John M. LaTourrette) did.

I’ll snip out most of it.

“The ocean never xxxxxxx [gripes] because some of the water evaporates into the sky.”

“It always comes back. And the rains of blessing always pour down, where there is plenty, but almost never on the desert.”

End Of Quote From Post.

This reminds me of “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

Even then, though, there is STILL “water in the desert” for the person who knows how to FIND it – and do you know what is so interesting about that?

…In the desert places where they have found a way to get water from the air and plant a garden, and take careful care of that garden for just a couple of years where they are very mindful of what they do and how they do it…

The garden starts to grow and thrive almost “on it’s own.”

Character And Integrity In Relationships

I found an interesting meme about relationships while doing research on an account I’m setting up.

It reminded me of what Steve Andreas – who was a really excellent NLP trainer and writer – wrote about marriage and relationships.

Steve Andreas said people are attracted to looks in a relationship, but they should also pay attention to the other person’s voice because you will spend much more time hearing someone in a relationship than you will spend looking at them. (Paraphrased.)

The “meme” I saw that reminded me of this said:
“You may fall in love with the beauty of someone, but remember that finally you have to live with the character, not the beauty.”

There’s an energetic component to attraction (which covers a whole lot of territory) that the person who wrote the meme ignored (and might not have known about). I do like the emphasis on the importance of CHARACTER, though. They could improve that.

How?

“Finally you have to live with the character, not the beauty.”

How so? Don’t like their character, find someone with character you DO like and appreciate. “You have to live with it” seems to be a “doomed, poor little ole me” type of mentality, which is also an indicator of Character.

You can choose to find beauty in someone’s CHARACTER.

You always have choices you are free to make.

Character means something much, much different than what many people think it means.
