If a thief forces you to take money from an ATM, do not argue or resist. What you should do is punch your pin in reverse. EX: if your pin is 1234 you punch 4321. The moment you punch in the reverse, the money will come out but will be stuck in the machine and the machine will immediately alert the police without the theif’s knowledge. Every ATM has this feature.
Reblog this so everyone knows, this happens all the time especially in the city

You are the most important person in the world to Jesus. Somehow, in the infinite heart of God, that is true for each of us. You are infinitely important to God.
“Jesus wept.” -John 11:35
Dealing with emotions does not mean shutting them down. Emotions were an important part of Jesus’s life. He knew He was going to raise Lazarus from the dead. He could have just skipped to being okay, but Jesus felt the emotion of that moment. He let emotion be a healthy part of His life and that situation
Jealousy gives you a false narrative that you have no control over your own life. Jealousy wants to keep you sitting at home doing nothing, because all that time spent being mad that they have it and you don’t is time you are not spending on your helping your own situation.
If you want to talk to people about Jesus, you need credibility. That doesn’t mean being perfect, that doesn’t mean knowing the whole Bible, it means living out what you’re saying. I can’t count the number of Christians who drone on about the sanctity of marriage and have crappy marriages. Walk with the Lord in truth and people will get a jealousy for that life, they will come to you to ask you how to pull that off.

You aren’t asking for a show
Where I make believe I’ve made it on my own
You aren’t waiting for big words
Where I sound smart enough that now I think I’m heard
You’re just looking for Your child
To be with you by Your side
And to tell You how I feel
And discover once again Your love is real
In the words of that great social philosopher S.R. Vaughn, “We’re never safe from the truth, but in the truth we can survive.” No matter how painful, it’s not the truth that’s killing us, it’s the lies. The lies we believe become far worse than the painful truths we try to avoid.
‘Gospel’ means ‘good news.’ That is what the word means. Yet there are religious people who are determined to add guilt, and rules, and punishment on top of it until it isn’t good news anymore. Those people are not preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
