Privileged to lead 14 Strong at HardNocs Flagpole in the Gloom this Thursday 2/2/23

While Monday’s message was Part 1: Who’s looking at you?

MESSAGE:

Today’s was “What are you Looking at?“… not in the NJ/NY accent of What are you looking at buddy! but more so of Where do your eyes go? To your wife, or checking out other women? Do they go to questionable Internet site? Or productive learning sites? Social Media may have it’s place, but wasting time does not.

So, where is your focus at? in the right places: Family, Career, Finances, Marriage, Children? What about your faith? What are you with that?

The VERY important flip side of this is: What aren’t you NOT looking at?

The Car with Hazards on? are you avoiding stopping because it’s inconvenient to you? The lady by the highway begging for money or food with her 2 kids nearby? do you look away?

Short story time: Last night 2/1/22 I was out riding with my nearly 4 year old in my wife’s jeep. We randomly got to a jeep ride by a series of “this wasn’t planned” events that put us out towards Settler’s Landing with this Q topic on my mind and BAM, there is a car on the side with hazards on.

I pulled over with my son, popped out and turns out that they had run out of fuel and power for their phones too. They were dead stick in the water. I volunteered to go get gas. As I drove back home (forgot my wallet) I took it as an opportunity to teach myself that when people are in trouble, we should try and help the best we car. One Gas can and two gallons of gas delivered later, the lady and her friend were very thankful. They tried to pay me and I said “Pay it forward to someone in need!”

The point of this story isn’t to rah-rah myself… but if I had chosen (because it is a choice men) to drive by and ignore, then I would have been a hypocrite leading this Q. It because an opportunity to: 1) help someone in need, and 2) teach myself the right way to human like Jesus would want me to (I believe)… and I took it, because my eyes didn’t look away.

What are you looking away from in your life?

The lamp of the body is the eye. It follows that if your eye is clear, your whole body will be filled with light.
But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!
No one can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.” – JESUS
