Are you going up or down

Updated on January 20, 2013

It’s all in the people.

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today Hebrews 3:13 New International Version

People will either bring you up or bring you down.

Are you having problems with your marriage or relationships? Then why do you hang out with people that go through marriages like a turnstile? They will bring down your marriage like an elevator that has its cables broke and you are on the thirtieth floor. Why not learn from people who have been through the tough times? Talk with them, listen to them and emulate them.

Are you working your fingers to the bone and in debt up to your eyeballs? Then why are you hanging out with the “in crowd” that has to have all the toys and gadgets? They are going down so slow they don’t even know it.

Why not make friends with people who are content with little and learn their secrets (which aren’t really secret but you need to learn from them)?

Oh sure these men and women may seem geeky and old fashioned sometimes but they have something you don’t have but want: peace.

Then you will be someone who people will want to get on your elevator because it is going up.

“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our Provider) allocate me with the opportunities and wisdom to be one who opens the door and welcomes in others on the elevator that is going all the way up to Heaven. I ask this in the name of He who was lifted in the sky before His beloved disciples eyes Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
