Kingdom economy is fun!! Discover the joy of sowing good seed into another's need, at the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Be ready at a Supermarket till, to pay for an old pensioner's groceries. Be ready to pay for a stranger's bill at a coffee shop, or buy a meal for a person sitting on a pavement. If this is difficult for you, begin by sowing smiles, and kind considerate words into needy lives.
Proverbs 11:15 (NKJV) "He who is surety for a stranger will suffer, But one who hates being surety is secure."
The Bible warns against signing surety for another's debt, for very good reason. No one wants to be “ruined” by meeting someone else's financial obligations, even if they are family.
Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) "Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he."
We all have a destiny. Everyone is born with purpose. The true desires of our heart help us to discover our destiny, to know our purpose and havevision for our lives. What is your vision? What are your giftings ? What are the true desires of your heart ? From these, discover your destiny, know your purpose, and clarifyyour vision.
Proverbs 11:14 (NKJV) "Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety."
Making wise decisions, especially life-changing decisions, requires good Biblical advice from several Christians whose lives demonstrate Godliness and fruitfulness.
Proverbs 11: 12,13 & 17: 9 (NKJV) "He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, But a man of understanding holds his peace. A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. He who covers a transgression seeks love, But he who repeats a matter separates friends."
What a beautiful expression of love it is to cover one another's faults and failures through prayer. In fact it is your Christian responsibility to do so, and to keep confidences well hidden in your heart. Help others who are weak by refusing to listen to gossip. There is a very thin line between genuine Christian concern and being a talebearer.
Proverbs 10:12 & 1Peter 4:8 (NKJV) "Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins. And above all things have fervent love for one another' for "love will cover a multitude of sins."

Look for good soil to sow the seed in you, the seed of God's love. . . .Ifoffended, misunderstood or estranged,sow His love into the lives of those responsible. The truth is, that whenever you do so, you will be blessed and will surely reap a multiplied harvest.
Proverbs 9: 17-18 (KJV) "Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell."
Our flesh enjoys, even hungers after sin, especially sexual immorality. But beware, there is a great danger in satisfying that hunger, it leads to a slow but certain spiritual death. There is a saying that says “if you don't kill the dragon in you, the dragon will kill you.” An appropriate saying for any caught in sexual immorality.
Proverbs 8:17-18 &21 (NKJV) " I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries."
Freedom in Christ Jesus is complete freedom, which includes financial freedom. God's purpose for us is to be financially independent of worldly restrictions & bondages. To be free of all debt, of every lack and of greed. Such liberty is in it's self -a test of our good stewardship and generosity. The LORD has called all believers to generously finance The Gospel and build His Kingdom.
Proverbs 4:10-12 "Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble."
An athlete is coached and trained to the peak of fitness and made ready to compete. The LORD has prepared and equipped you to serve Him. You are ready do what He has called you to do. Now go, obey Him.
