Cell Phones - 101 Blog.
Each one of us… seek some sort of Validation, either from our mate, friend and even from FB or some other social internet site. Many that attend Church get their Kudos from their friends that believe… just like they do… whether it is ‘Right’ or ‘Wrong!’ Remember David Koresh and the Branch Dividians in Waco Texas? Or Jim Jones and the 800 that died with him in a “Mass Suicide!” Perhaps NOW… is the time to stop and see “WHAT”… ‘You Really Believe’..?
*** (John 12:43) For they loved = the praise of men = more than = the praise of God.
*** (2Timothy 3:7) Ever learning, = and never able to = come to the knowledge = of the Truth.
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) "Not everyone = who keeps saying to Me [Jesus], = 'Lord, = Lord,' = will get into the kingdom of heaven, = but only the person = who keeps doing = the will [Word] of my Father [God] in heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] on that day, = 'Lord, = Lord, = we prophesied = in Your name, = drove out demons = in Your name, = and = performed many miracles = in Your name, = didn't we?'
(Matt 7:23) Then I [Jesus] = will tell them plainly, = 'I [Jesus] = never knew you. = Get away from Me, = you who practice lawlessness!'"
Can ‘YOU’ possibly… live ‘without’ a “Cell Phone?” Did you realize that a CP… is nothing more than… “Instant Validation [Gratification]? Oh how I hate shopping, seeing people walking through the grocery store, speaking on a cell. It seems that “MANY”… ‘cannot’ live without one! They are “Instantly Validated”… by the other person, they are speaking with. Much like today’s youth… that have “NO”… ‘Social’ or ‘Sexuality’ restraints!
*** (Romans 6:16) Do you not know that = to whom = you yield yourselves as slaves for obedience, = you are = slaves = to him whom you obey; = whether it is of sin to death, = or of obedience to righteousness.
About now… someone is offended! They are… ‘addicted’ to their ‘Cell’; and will not give it up. Yet they complain, about the Cost, every time they have to pay the bill. They are satisfied by the Validation they receive. One of my friends who attends “AA” [Alcoholics Anonymous] said they told her… “IF”… you cannot go more than “Two Weeks”… without an Alcoholic drink… “THEN”… they were a… “Bona fide Alcoholic!” Could that be applied to a Cell…? But each one will say that it is only a convenience. A ‘Convenience’… against “Pre-Planning?” What did you do… ‘before’ you had a Cell?
*** (Proverbs 26:12) Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
*** (Proverbs 15:7) The lips of the righteous send forth knowledge, but the heart of the foolish is not so.
*** (Proverbs 16:25) There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end of it is the ways of death.
A Parody about a “Cell Phone”…!
Today we finally made the last payment on your Tombstone. It will be installed at your grave this week. Sorry it took so long to pay for it, but it is a ‘Custom One’; that took a little longer. You see, it looks like the… “Your Cell PHONE”… that we buried with you!
It seems that when you were alive; you were ‘Always’ speaking with someone else, besides your family, children and husband, ‘our father’. We were your ‘little children’ and needed so very much from you; but you were ‘always’ on your “Cell!”
We often though, that you must care for your Cell… ‘More’ than you do us? Even as pre-teens and teens… you still ‘never’ seemed to have enough time for us. Yes, even our dad; your husband, never got ‘your’ attention, as you were always ‘speaking’ with someone else… on your “Cell!”
But now you are gone… but you ‘still’ have your “Cell”… there in the casket and the “Cell Phone Tombstone”… to remind “Us”… about ‘You!’
We love you… your Family. [A Parody]
Someone once to me… how do you afford to travel internationally? Well I do not smoke, do not drink alcohol nor do I have a Cell Bill. Simply with the money I save… I can every 3-years afford to do so. We all save for… what we want and spend what we want. The effort we put into… anything… is where our heart, really is. Some need “Validation” [Gratification]… ‘Instantly’… and some are willing to “Wait!”
*** (Luke 16:10-to-13) He who is faithful in the least = is also faithful in much. = And he who is unjust in the least = is also unjust in much.
(Luke 16:11) Therefore if = you have not been faithful = in the unrighteous mammon, = who will entrust the = true riches to you?
(Luke 16:12) And if you = have not been faithful = in that which is another's, = who shall give you that which is your own?
(Luke 16:13) No servant = can serve two masters. = For either = he will hate the one = and love the other, = or else = he will hold to the one = and despise the other. = You cannot serve God = and mammon.
*** (Matthew 25:21) His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.
May I ask ‘one’ Question…? Do you find yourself… spending more time; Thinking about Jesus and what His Word says… than you do spending ‘time’… on your “Cell?” No, I am not against Cells. Simply evaluate… from “Whom”… do you get; your ‘Validation’…?
Thanks for your EAR!
In Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 33:3.
