The theme for the blog today is the spiritual principles of money. When we look at the source of our money most of us tend to look at our jobs. The agreement we have made to trade money for our time.
I believe the true source of our money, our good if you will is not our jobs, it is not our investments, it is God. If you don’t believe that there is a higher power then this message and this show today will not speak to you. However if you do, I want you to consider the power behind the other prayers and thoughts that you carry with you day after day.
Whether you are prospering or struggling with your money I believe it is your thoughts and prayers that help or stop you from seeing the opportunity that is placed in your path.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.
He started to think about his father and how much that separation had created a hole in his life. Determined to do whatever he had to do in order to repair that relationship, went to see his father.
He had not seen him since that graduation day and as he walked in, he saw his father sitting in his study in the same place he stormed out of years before. His father struggled to get out of his chair but approached his son with a big smile and a warm hug.
They talked for hours and as the son was leaving, the father picked the gift up wiped his hand over it to remove some of the dust collected over the years and handed it to his son. This time the son opened the box and removed the beautiful leather bound bible. As he took the bible out of the box a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible.
The key had a tag with the dealer's name, that same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, some words of pride and congratulations along with the words...PAID IN FULL.
But the moral of the story is, you always go back home to receive them.
