Why Many Remain Unblessed Even After Giving In Church.


When preachers tells you that giving is the
only thing to do for God to bless you,then
that is half truth and beyond giving you
need investment.It is very very clear in the
scriptures.Before some people who are addicted
to the lies of their pastors start attacking
this truth.I am a pastor as well.
Let the truth be told

The following are reasons why
Many Christians remain poor
even after paying their tithe

(The truth some preachers and pastors may not tell you)

The Dreamy Milk-Maid



Milk-maid had been to the meadow to milk her cows. Now she was returning home with a pail of milk on her head.

She thought, "I will make cream and butter out of this milk. Then selling them, I will buy eggs. and when they hatch, I shall have a good poultry farm."

She further thought, "I shall sell some of my fowls and buy a fine dress. Seeing it on my body at the fair, all the boys will admire me
.   

The Praying Hands

  



Back in the fifteenth century, in a tiny village near Nuremberg, lived a family with eighteen children. Eighteen! In order merely to keep food on the table for this mob, the father and head of the household, a goldsmith by profession, worked almost eighteen hours a day at his trade and any other paying chore he could find in the neighborhood. Despite their seemingly hopeless condition, two of Albrecht Durer the Elder’s children had a dream. They both wanted to pursue their talent for art, but they knew full well that their father would never be financially able to send either of them to Nuremberg to study at the Academy.
After many long discussions at night in their crowded bed, the two boys finally worked out a pact. They would toss a coin. The loser would go down into the nearby mines and, with his earnings, support his brother while he attended the academy. Then, when that brother who won the toss completed his studies, in four years, he would support the other brother at the academy, either with sales of his artwork or, if necessary, also by laboring in the mines.

Care everyone


I was just 13 when my mother left this world. It was a time when I didn't even know the meaning of relations and the impact of loosing someone close to heart. Like anyone else, I also love my mother so much. Still remember I was so young and every afternoon used to play with other children in my playground. Just few days before that incident she used to call me to stay at home and to be with her but most of the time I ignore or just say “I am coming I am coming” like any other kid of that age and continue to play with friends, obviously I just cannot even think in my dream what is going to happen in next few days. My friends and badminton were more important at that time. I still used to see her in my dream in same situation calling me to stay at home but I am busy in playground. Now whenever I wake up with this dream I spend my entire day in tears and cursing myself for not being there with her when she needed me and now when I need her she is no longer with me. 


The Bear and The Two Friends

bear and friends
Once two friends were walking through the forest. They knew that anything dangerous can happen to them at any time in the forest. So they promised each other that they would remain united in any case of danger.
Suddenly, they saw a large bear approaching them. One of the friends at once climbed a nearby tree. But the other one did not know how to climb. So being led by his common sense, he lay down on the ground breathless, pretending to be a dead man.
The bear came near the man lying on the ground. It smelt in his ears, and slowly left the place. Because the bears do not touch the dead creatures.Now the friend on the tree came down and asked his friend on the ground, “Friend, what did the bear tell you into your ears?” The other friend replied, “The bear advised me not to believe a false friend.”
Moral: True Friend is the one who always supports and stands by you in any situation.

Joke of the day

The kind of girl i am




I am the kind of girl who believes in fairy tales and romantic love stories. The kind of girl who is a die-hard romantic and who would love to write letters and poems. The girl who would love to hide mushy love notes under pillows and in wardrobes. . The one who would love to hold hands and walk in the rain.. The girl who dreams of candlelight dinners and dancing on a beach in the moonlight. The girl who would wait endlessly till dawn to just get a goodnight call from her lover.I am the kind of girl who believes in the magic and power of love. A girl who would fall in love to stay in love for ever. And I am sure somewhere out there is a man just like me and waiting for a girl like me….

Smartest Man in the World

smartness
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.
Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining.
The doctor grabbed one and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out.
The lawyer then said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live.” He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.
The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace.”
The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Not to worry Father. The smartest man in the world just took off with my BACK PACK.”
Moral: Your job doesn’t always define you, but being a Good Human being Does.

Struggles of our Life

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.
Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.

Doubt Isn't what we think it is



I used to see the world as divided between two kind of people.  The “scientific” folks who questioned everything.  Who were excited and curious about life.  And the “religious” folks who were scared of questioning.  Doubt was great, and the “doubt-deniers” were confused and lost. But then something truly bizarre happened: the more that I questioned the more I slowly joined the religious folk. The religious folks I was interacting with, from my Christian friends to my Chabad rabbi, didn’t seem so afraid of the doubt that I was excited about.  They seemed to invite it, in their own way.  Obviously, they came from their own perspectives.  But the doubt did not scare them.  It excited them. I loved this.  I loved them.  I loved what was happening.  Because in this situation, the more I debated these folks, the closer I felt like I was coming to some truth. And eventually, I chose that truth. 

I didn't love my wife when we got married!!




I'm a ridiculous, emotional, over-sentimental sap.  I guess that’s why I told my wife I loved her on our second date.
 I had tried really hard up to that point to hold it back, honestly. 
 I wanted to tell her on the first date, but I knew that would probably be weird. I still remember her reaction.  She kind of gave me this half-shy, half-amused smile.  
Then she nodded and looked off into the sky. I wasn’t heartbroken by the response.  I think part of me recognized that she was much smarter and more modest than me. But as time has gone on, 
I also realized that she knew something that I didn’t. Like most Hasidic Jews (we both became religious later in life),  our dating period lasted a very short time.  After two months of dating, we were engaged.  Three months after that, we were married. And that whole time I was swooning.  This fire was burning in me, a fire that burned just like that second date: I was in love. But then we got married, and everything changed. 
Marriage, quicker than I was ready for, did this thing: it started sucking away that emotion.

The Fox Without Tail

Fox in trap

A fox was once caught in a trap. It was only after a tough struggle that she could get free. But, to her sorrow, her beautiful tail had been cut off and left in the trap.

"How ugly I shall look!" moaned the fox, " won't the other foxes laugh at me ?"

Thinking hard, the fox hit upon a plan to save herself from being laughed at. 

Heart Touching Story…..with a Moral!!!


A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an  urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes &  went directly to the surgery block.

He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor.
On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to  come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have  any sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled & said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the  hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And  now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

Don’t Hope,… Decide!



While waiting to pick up a friend at the airport in Portland, Oregon, I had one of those life-changing experiences that you hear other people talk about — the kind that sneaks up on you unexpectedly. This one occurred a mere two feet away from me.
Straining to locate my friend among the passengers deplaning through the jet way, I noticed a man coming toward me carrying two light bags. He stopped right next to me to greet his family.
First he motioned to his youngest son (maybe six years old) as he laid down his bags. They gave each other a long, loving hug. As they separated enough to look in each other’s face, I heard the father say, “It’s so good to see you, son. I missed you so much!” His son smiled somewhat shyly, averted his eyes and replied softly, “Me, too, Dad!”

Dearest grandmama!

 
(c)googel Grandma Mizell 


Hi all, I would like to share a story with you, a person who has been a source of inspiration to each and everyone of our family member.

She is (was rather, she is no more) my grandmama. She was an affectionate woman who could win over anyone with her undying love, no matter what. Let me narrate to you, the story of her life, the trauma that no woman should ever undergo!

She was the eldest of a family of 7 girls and 1 boy. Of these, 2 children died shortly after birth. Right now, only 2 of them are alive.

At the age of 16, my grandma got married as a second wife to a 40 year old man. She lost her husband 1 year after her wedding. By God’s grace she had a son whom she considered a solace. But that didn’t last, as the son passed away shortly too! Ultimately, by the age of 25 she lost her entire family! Nevertheless, she then dedicated her life towards the upbringing of each and every child in the family. This was the reason she was loved and respected by everyone in our family.

Marriage – very touching!





When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

The Grass Cutting Days!!!!


The pastor called me to come forward. I walked to the pulpit confident and proud. I looked out at my family. Some wore somber expressions. Others had faces still damp with tears. Then I gazed down at the shiny black coffin crowned with yellow flowers.

My father, Charlie Lyons, was gone. It was my turn at his funeral earlier this year to pay tribute to the man who taught me so much growing up on the Northside. How do you sum up a lifetime in 10 minutes?

I flashed to Dad holding the handlebar and jogging alongside my bike until I felt ready to ride on my own. I saw him pulling up to my broken-down car at night, doing a quick fix and trailing me home. I thought of the hug we shared at my wedding.

Lesson from the Hedgehogs – Teamwork

Hedgehogs

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
