What it means for you to live a genuine life
But the LORD said to Samuel, â€œDo not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.â€
>1 Samuel 16:7
A little boy was out in the backyard one day just passing the afternoon away. Suddenly, he saw a huge rat. Knowing his mom and dad didnâ€™t want rats around the house, he grabbed a baseball bat and took care of that rat fairly quickly. He was so excited that he wanted to tell his parents right away.
So he went inside and yelled, â€œMom, Dadâ€¦ youâ€™re not going to believe it! I found a rat, hit him in the head with my baseball bat five times, and them I stomped on it!â€ Just then, the boy noticed the pastor of the church was in the living room visiting with his parents. So he finished his story, â€œAnd then the Lord called him home.â€
Itâ€™s funny how many people change who they are when the pastorâ€™s around. Every now and then, Iâ€™ll get hooked up to play golf with some guys who curse like sailors. So at about the 9th hole, theyâ€™ll find out Iâ€™m a pastor, and they play the rest of the day like a bunch of saints!
People with true character are those who live authentically in every area of their life. Theyâ€™re the same people on Saturday night that they are on Sunday morning. So donâ€™t put on a morality show for the religious crowd. Live a genuine life every day of the week!
LIVE EVERY DAY GENUINELY BEFORE THE LORD, NOT PUTTING ON A SHOW FOR THE RELIGIOUS CROWD.

Live with hope in the last days!
We have to communicate Godâ€™s love and acceptance to our children so they have a right picture of their Heavenly Father.
The people of the church are the house of God.
We must communicate the right idea of God from the Word of Godâ€¦ no compromises!
If youâ€™re in Christ, youâ€™ll never experience Godâ€™s wrath.
