I have been thinking quite a bit about being a good steward of what God has provided.  God owns everything – (Psalm 24:1-2).  The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who are in it.  Accept what you have – (1 Timothy 6:7-8) Basically this verse says you come into the world with nothing and leave with nothing.  Seek first His Kingdom, and submit your requests to Him – (Matthew 6:33) But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Guys, realize that we are here to simply manage what is already His.  We need to seek out his kingdom, his righteousness and aim to use what he has blessed us with for His glory rather than our own.

1 John 4:1-4 Let’s have the courage to stand up against the evils of the world, to test the spirits that are not from the Lord, to rebuke the sin and temptation that is so rampant in our nation and world as a whole, if we don’t fight it then we will be consumed by it; let’s be consumed by the SPIRIT OF THE LORD!
Glad to have some FNGs on a Saturday! Everyone was pushed and did a great job of finding their limits; not a single PAX gave up or slowed down past what was needed to keep going!
