Sacred Trust

Within each of our lives, we are given various responsibilities. Regardless of the type or size, we are entrusted with their upkeep, maintenance, and growth. If you were the oldest child, you may have been given responsibilities to watch over your younger siblings. If you are the manager of a specific office or section, you are given responsibility over those that work under you. If you are a parent, you have the responsibility to build and grow your children while tending to their specific needs. If you are a husband or wife, you have responsibilities to the other.

Too often when we consider the concept of responsibilities, we often think of the CEO of a company or some high and lofty position. However, at almost every level our relationships and work, we are given some commitment of responsibility. Each person can be given multiple levels of responsibility within every area of their lives (i.e. home, work, church, community) and these responsibilities can be considered as a sacred trust.

Proverbs 16:18 – Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

One of the definitions of pride is a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct, etc.1 Pride causes someone to believe they have everything ‘right,’ while a situation (or things) around them are far from it.

When pride stands in the way, dreams die, relationship crumble, desires remain wants, and people are lacking.

The Grumpies

Have you ever had a day where hardly anything was going right? Did you find yourself complaining and becoming angry, short-tempered, and even using foul language?

If so, you may have come down with a case of the Grumpies (also known as living in the flesh).

The Grumpies often begin with an event, large or small, that irritates you. It can be the kids, drivers on the road, a co-worker…anything. The Grumpies then spread as multiple events stack on top of one another – often within a short period. By this time (if not already), you’ll discover those symptoms above.

Proverbs 17:22A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

One of the cures for the Grumpies is a merry heart. Many times all we need is one shot of SOMETHING (funny, heart-warming, or prayer, etc.) to break our concentration from our fleshly rage. When the Grumpies are coming on, don’t be left to conduct damage control after you’ve allow the grumpy flesh to have its way.

The Grumpies are curable! All things are possible through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).

Acts 20:35I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Around the world and throughout the halls of academia, one of the basic tools for learning is the textbook. For some college students, college books are often more expensive than the course itself.

As you complete your classes and begin to consider what to do with your books, please consider giving your books away to another student.

Now, it’s your right to sell your books, but you never know what someone else might be going through. Your giving might be the answer someone prayed for.
