That Sounds Like Home To Me - The Hyltons

Tonight, I sprung this old song on Bev & Kaitlyn...with no practice lol. Felt good to sing around the piano together. The message in this song reminds me that HEAVEN is going to be HOME SWEET HOME!

Don't Be Swept Away With Fake News!

“Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish.” 
Proverbs‬ ‭18:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I know first hand how people, who have no clue, think they know so much. Truth is, they've never even talked face-to-face to the person(s) they apparently have an issue with & their fabricated information is not only ignorant it's flavored with someone else's offense.

The Scriptures teach how to handle such issues: Steer clear of these people, mark them & have no fellowship.

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭16:17-18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

When it comes to Pastors in Houston, TX and churches who are working with their city to provide HELP, please don't sit in your lazy boy and form an opinion based off of social media or even the news channels that a particular church or leader isn't doing enough to help! Unless you're there FACE-TO-FACE...and can interview them & see it for yourself...your opinion doesn't matter.

On another note...why is it that people who aren't doing much constantly criticize people who are doing more! The point I'm making is, until you're actually accomplishing what they're doing for God...who are we to put our mouth on people? My parents taught me..."you keep your mouth & your hand off the man of God."

You may not like someone's methods or even their message (in the Kingdom of God), but WHO ARE YOU to even criticize? Before we speak to something we KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, let us humbly remind ourselves that we are NOTHING without the grace & mercy of God.

Those who are doing lofty things for God will always come under speculation & assumicide.

The peanut gallery will always have stones to throw & axes to grind. But those who are leading well...are looking through the windshield & not the rear view mirror.

Always remember...what goes around comes around. What you do to someone else will come back to you. It's called the law of reciprocity. If you've caused someone else severe hardship with your mouth or out...It's just a matter of time.

If you're interested in helping some great churches in the Houston area, here's more valuable information concerning people we love & respect in God's Kingdom!

Let us continue to PRAY FOR TEXAS! We have many churches/friends that are severely affected by HURRICANE HARVEY.

Water Baptism 8-27-17 BFWC

Dear Young Leader

1. #DearYoungLeader: God uses SEASONS to make chiropractic ADJUSTMENTS to our support framework. He's not BREAKING us. He's STRAIGHTENING us.
2. #DearYoungLeader: Never show DISHONOR in the name of HONESTY. Do your word study: HONEST comes from a word that means HONORABLE.
3. #DearYoungLeader: DISAGREEMENT is unavoidable. DISRESPECT is unacceptable. DISLOYALTY is unforgettable. DISHONOR is untreatable.
4. #DearYoungLeader: We are depending on you to FINISH what we STARTED & CATCH what we MISSED. Don't get BIG HEADED & BULL HEADED in the wait.
5. #DearYoungLeader: You cannot be a JOSHUA, until you have served a MOSES.
6. #DearYoungLeader: Most people do not do what's EXPECTED they do what's INSPECTED.
7. #DearYoungLeader: SUCCESS is not measured by money but by SIGNIFICANCE.
8. #DearYoungLeader: If you have to be told more than once to do something, you're either IGNORANT or OBSTINATE.
9. #DearYoungLeader: It’s easy to forget all the SACRIFICES other people have made to get you where you are.
10. #DearYoungLeader: What the devil cannot ASSASSINATE he tries to ALIENATE. Don't let him ISOLATE you away from the leaders who can ELEVATE you.
