Reap what you sow Part 3
Matt. 7:2 "...and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again"
And as I thought about the things God was showing me I understood that God is very deliberate. Let's look at the word deliberate. Websters dictionary (Intermediate Dictionary) defines deliberate as to "think about carefully" as if "balancing on a scale". It is also described as
* done or said on purpose
* careful and slow in deciding
* slow in action- not hurried
So this takes planning and preparation. If you want financial freedom you have to plan for it. You cannot expect to put a "magic offering" in the collection plate and reap a million dollars. This is something that we hear alot in Christianity. We get excited when the preacher says "Turn around 3 times and look at your neighbor and say Neighbor we are turning our financial situation around". Are you really? I think not, all you are doing is turning around making yourself dizzy. If you want to correct your financial situation read a book about finances, attend a workshop, etc. Do something proactive about coming out of debt. All of these spooky things we do in Christianity are not spiritual. It is spiritual when you take your broke self to a workshop and learn how to get out of debt. God is a God of common sense. He is a practical God. He may be supernatural but He is not SPOOKY.
