WORDS OF WISDOM II
Resourcefulness and Money
Money can be used to barter for things you desire.
So can resourcefulness.
With money you usually have to have someone other than yourself decide to give you their money.
With resourcefulness you are not dependent on someone else choosing to give you their money (which is very often extremely hard to get someone to part with).
Some people sacrifice their integrity to some degree at times to get money. To get more resourceful you not only do not have to sacrifice your integrity, you actually develop your character in the pursuit of it.
And there is also the chance that the Lord God will choose to bless you more and more as He sees your intent on developing your resourcefulness. In fact, there exists the possibility that so-called "problems" you run into in your life are actually circumstances that the Lord God has put in your life to help bring out your resourcefulness. Knowing you and all that you can be, He just might "throw" things into your life that give you the opportunity to develop the resourcefulness that you might not have developed had these "problems" never existed.
The more ease you have in your life, the less chance for disease.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.- Isaiah 40:31

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
- Matthew 6:19-21
Carnal company and/or attention:
When it is good, it is great. When it is bad, it is painful.
Do not chase after it, do not depend on it.
If somebody gave you a million
dollars, you'd choose to be happy. If your boss gave you a raise, you'd
choose to be happy. There exists an unlimited supply of reasons to choose
to be happy. But some days you don't choose to be happy and there seems
to be almost no reasons to be happy.
THINK ON THIS:
If you can think of no other reason to choose to be happy except for the FACT that being happy FEELS BETTER than being sad ....this is reason enough.
Know ye not that ye are the temple
