A few months ago we hired a very trustworthy worker to do some work for our office. We know him and his work ethics very well, and did not doubt when he brought along a helper, which is reasonable and understandable.
Because of the type of work being accomplished, our main worker was not always present, so we would continue to use his helper for various other jobs around the property. We found out much later that he was stealing from us, which left us and our friend very saddened and hurt.
Stealing is not worth it. It brings a curse upon yourself.
There are many things one can steal when left unattended, but did you know you can steal from yourself?
How can I steal from myself? You may ask.
By not improving yourself in the areas you are weak in, and not recognizing you need help.
The longer we steal from ourselves, the longer it takes for us to reach our dreams and true potential and we become frustrated with ourselves and life.
- We fail to learn
- we fail to grow
- We fail to accomplish things that matter in life.
- We do not reach our full potential
- Opportunities are lost
This type of theft keeps you in poverty.
I love learning, and I have just recently learned how to set goals and how to achieve them. I have decided I will no longer steal from myself, but invest in myself.
If you are like me, college is out of the question because of age and cost. Today´s learning is very accessible via online. These two websites are offering sales for the New Year.
I have learned to write down my goals for the year, and I have them in front of me as I sit at my desk. Research shows when one writes down their goals, they are more likely to accomplish them. I am excited about how I will finish 2017
What did we learn from the theft a few months ago? Do not trust others and keep guard on our belongings. That includes your spiritual, mental, emotional and personal belongings.
We had to forgive and release him to the Lord, and not hold any bitterness or resentment. By doing so, we free ourselves and we move on, and we become the wiser.
God sent His son to the earth to give, the enemy comes to steal. May we be in the spirit of giving, not holding any of our gifts or talents back to those that can benefit from what you have to offer.
In giving, God deposits more into you so that you can give it away again. It never runs dry.
Try giving something away, an advice, a prayer, an encouragement. God will only bless you with more.
