I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Proverbs 19:1 Better to be poor and honest then to be dishonest and a fool.

My Thoughts
Being dishonest is a sin, a sin we do on purpose and it separates us from God...Isaiah 59:2 tells us "Sin separates us from God." Yet often people are dishonest in their relationships, or their business to try and with favor... to win favor with man. So this verse says it is better to be honest before God, have favor with God than to be dishonest with man and have favor with man.  God is the one who blesses us!!... The devil can trick us and make us think dishonesty is working.. but God knows and he is the one that blesses us or keeps blessing from us.  The next time you think being dishonest will save your "butt" then think do I want to please God or do I want to please man?" I believe that if you loose out because you were honest with man, before God that what you will gain in due time will be far greater than what you lost by your lies.  So the next time you are tempted to lie to save your "butt," choose truth and save your relationship with God.  I promise the feeling of relief  you feel after you tell the truth will be way more rewarding, because God rewards us for doing what is right and just.
