Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing
P&L, P&L, & P&L
As I stated in the past I am not an expert in the social sciences but I do know a little about life in our world today and one thing I know through observation and experience one is P&L have become Profit & Loss, Politics & Lies rather than People and Lives. And I don’t mean to be a prophet of doom but there’s not single a person in the world who can fix it. It doesn’t matter how rich they are. It doesn’t matter how powerful they are. It doesn’t matter how smart they are. It doesn’t matter how religious they are. There’s only one way it’s gonna be fixed…
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”” (Revelation 21:1–4, NLT)
You and I probably can’t do anything about Profit & Loss, Politics & Lies however we can make a difference in the individual lives of those People and Lives (you and I included) who have become “collateral damage”. I’ll let the apostle Paul tell you what you and I can do. “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NLT) Because we are been-there-received-God’s-blessings-Christians the Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to help people experience the God given value in their lives.
If these words happen to be read by someone who has turned P&L into Profit & Loss, Politics & Lies the bible has some pointed words for them too. “The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:13–15, NLT)
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
