268. Sleep when it is quiet

Proverbs 6:10-11

“Sleep a little. Doze a little. Fold your hands and twiddle your thumbs. Suddenly, everything is gone, as though it had been taken by an armed robber.”

As ones who practice modern survivalism and being self-reliant when it comes to worldly things we must stay busy when the sun is shining. There will be times when GOD will provide you with rest but be smart enough to take it.

266. Be a good example

Proverbs 2: 20

“Follow the example of good people and live an honest life”

Today, it may be hard to find many who are considered good people. Good may be in the eye of the beholder also. If you ask a lot of people if someone is good, you may find some who like them and some who hate them. No matter what we can’t please everyone, and some will hate us. Some will hate others just because they are successful.

The best we can do is follow the examples set forth to us by the holy books. We should be good to others and at the same time we should not be a push over either.

265. Is it to good to be true

Proverbs 1:17

“They are like a bird that sees the bait but ignores the trap.”

When you hear of a good deal always proceed with caution. I once heard of great deal on an enclosed trailer and I was going to use it for storage. We sure enough it was a scam. They wanted me to pay through eBay and then they would send the trailer to me. I thought this was strange so I googled the arrangement and sure enough it happens to people quiet often. They send the money and end up that much poorer.

Always in life remember the following, “If you expect it, then you must inspect it.”

264. A sustainable way to live.

Proverbs 30:7-9

“There are two things, Lord, I want you to do for me before I die: Make me absolutely honest and don’t let me be too poor or too rich. If I have too much to eat, I might forget about you; if I don’t have enough, I might steal and disgrace your name.”

Greed is one of the traits of animals that helps us to survive and at the same time as humans it gets us into trouble. We as humans can reason and know that enough is enough. We also have a survival instinct that when we get hungry it turns off this ability to reason and we do crazy things.

In your daily trials think to yourself, is this enough. Also contemplate saving some for later so that in lean times you have enough also.

263. They will come after your rights next.

Proverbs 29:7

“The wicked don’t care about the rights of the poor, but good people do.”

People who are comfortable tend to not worry about the rights of the poor and oppressed. People will say, “Let them pick themselves up”. With the second most important commandment being love others as you love yourself is this really how you want to be helped? Is this how you would help your children? I bet not.

If you don’t stand up for the poor, then the ones who oppress them will come after you next.

262. Advice from Christ (Clean Up)

2Suggested Reading — Mark 7:14-23

After reading the right act to the establishment about uncleanliness Jesus spoke to the people about what makes you unclean. There is no food that makes you unclean and that it is your actions from your heart and soul that make you unclean. The actions he mentioned are as follows: evil thoughts, vulgar deeds, stealing, murder, 22 unfaithfulness in marriage, greed, meanness, deceit, indecency, envy, insults, pride, and foolishness of these come from your heart and make you unfit to have fellowship with GOD.

I am Guilty of some of these acts and I ask for forgiveness from the Omnipotent One. I will work on having a cleaner heart and soul and I ask for GOD’s and your help.

261. Things are not always as they seem

Proverbs 25:8

“Be sure you are right before you sue someone, or you might lose your case and be embarrassed.”

There are many times in life that we may feel wronged by others. You must ask yourself if this is really the case that you have been wronged? It is human nature to always believe that you are always right. In the present time we see this belief outright in our face everyday on social media. If we see something that we believe is right and mostly we want it to be right, we share it with out fact checking it. We condemn others before we try to analyze the what when, where, and why.

Starting now go forth and question everything you see that is of this world. I recommend that you read the bible and question it. Read it and reread it several times. I guarantee that if you leave your mind open and seek then you will find that each time you read a book it will reveal more and more light to you. Once you see and feel the light then let it shine.

260. Never listen to emotions

Proverbs 24:6

“Battles are won by listening to advice and making a lot of plans.”

We shouldn’t ever listen to emotions and let them get the best of us. We should always seek advice when it comes to waging our own personal wars. We may find from another person’s perspective that our problem is quite trivial when look upon by eyes which are not ours. Christ taught us to love others as we would love ourselves. That we should openly show love toward our enemy’s.

Openly showing love for someone who has wrong us may just be the hardest hit you could ever give someone.

259. Protect those who need it

Proverbs 23:10-11

“Don’t move a boundary marker or take the land that belongs to orphans. God All-Powerful is there to defend them against you.”

God is telling us that we need to do what is in our power to help others if we can. If we have the power and influence to help stop people from stealing from the misfortunate, then we should. If we don’t help when we can we won’t be helped when we need it.
