WHY MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS CUTER THAN YOURS…

Back when Laurynn Johnson was only a few months old, she became the youngest baby ever to cover Minnie Riperton’s legendary high note in her song, “Lovin You”.

But the extreme cuteness didn’t stop there. She’s continued to BLESSTIFY her BIG DADDY every chance she gets!

Listen, I know you’re busy, but slow down and enjoy your children and their children. I’ve gone from thinking fondly of my childhood memories, to thinking fondly of when my children were children…to making new memories with the most adorable granddaughter in the word.

Don’t be so busy making a living that you miss out on a life with who you’re doing it for.

Psalm 128 (NKJV)

128 Blessed is every one who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.

2 When you eat the [a]labor of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

5 The Lord bless you out of Zion,
And may you see the good of Jerusalem
All the days of your life.
6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.

Peace be upon Israel!

So, I know you think your grandchildren, or children are cute, but come on now! They can’t be as cute as Laurynn!


BE BLESSTIFIED!

WHY THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH WANTING THE SPOTLIGHT ON YOURSELF SOMETIMES…

We were created in the image of our Elohim, our God. That doesn’t mean that we have the same color eyes and the same shaped nose that He has (He’s invisible). It means we were created to have His character…His attributes… His emotions. It means we can love like Him, experience joy like Him, hurt like Him, and sometimes get angry like Him.

It’s no secret that God likes attention, honor and glory. That’s why He created us…

Psalm 46:10 (NKJV)

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

1 Chronicles 29:11 ERV

Greatness, power, glory, victory, and honor belong to you, because everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you! The kingdom belongs to you, LORD! You are the head, the Ruler over everything.


So, since we were created in His image, it’s both natural and spiritual that we sometimes want some attention, glory and honor for ourselves.


He knows this; that’s why He commanded that we be lights…

Matthew 5:14-16

14 (A)“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they(B)light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, (C)that they may see your good works and (D)glorify your Father in heaven.

We have no light of our own. Just like the sun, the (Son) is the source of light, and the moon (man) reflects the sun’s (Son’s) light.

‘Light’ couldn’t be seen if it didn’t ‘like’ attention!

We must always remember not to steal God’s glory for ourselves, but when we testify that any good thing that we do is because of God, and that all glory belongs to Him, we can share in His glory. When we boast, boast in Him through our Lord and Savior Yeshua, Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:31 (NKJV)

31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”

Matthew 28:18  (NKJV)

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

So don’t feel bad when you sometimes want a little attention for yourself. Just always make sure that your motives are pure…

Philippians 2:3 (NKJV)

3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

IT’S NOT SELFISH TO LOVE YOURSELF…

BE BLESSTIFIED!
