WHEN PEOPLE ARE UNINTENTIONALLY TRANSPARENT…

I recently shared the picture above on a social media platform. The context was just as some entrepreneurs used to frame and display the first dollar they made, I was sharing the email that led to the first music licensing contract I acquired back in 2015 with NBC Universal on behalf of The Tonight Show.

It wasn’t my skill, talent, or connections…but God suddenly and unexpectedly allowed this opportunity to fall into my lap.

I shared this on social media to give God glory, and to give hope to others pursuing their purpose, dreams and vision.

I received several positive reactions, both LIKES 👍🏾 and LOVES ❤️ .

BUT CHECK THIS OUT…

I received a private inbox message from a fellow minister who never, ever, ever acknowledges me on social media. He told me that even though I ‘blacked out’ the name of the person who sent me the licensing email, that if you BLOW IT UP, you can still see the name.

🤔

I looked back at where I posted the picture and he didn’t click LIKE👍🏾, ❤️ LOVE, or even ANGRY 😡.

He chose to ignore the reactions and BLOW UP the picture which was very intentional. It took effort.

Sooooooo, what is his behavior saying without saying?

It’s amazing how people are unintentionally transparent.

By reading between the lines, whose behavior is transparent, his or mine?

Psalm 28:3b(NIV)

3…who speak cordially with their neighbors
but harbor malice in their hearts.(A)

FOR THOSE WHO SAY YOU SHOULDN’T SHARE YOUR FAITH AT WORK…

Should you leave your faith at home when you go to work? Remember, that Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, engaged Peter, Andrew, James, John and Matthew while they were busy working on their jobs.

He could have waited until they finished for the day, but he ministered to them while they were still working.

Matthew 4:18-22 (NKJV)

18 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.

Matthew 9:9-13 (NKJV)

As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him.

Sometimes God places disciples in the workplace to be light.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV)

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they 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, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

WOULD RACISM GO AWAY IF GOD STRUCK US ALL BLIND? (A SHORT POEM)

If none of us could see the color of our skin,

would it be easier to sense, what lies deep within?

Would all of our cultural differences that we base on race,

if none of us had sight, be gradually erased?

Would it suddenly take away one of the devils’ tools,

to use us against one another, just like fools?

So if we learn to close our eyes, and see with our hearts,

that’s one less thing to keep us apart.

Mark 4:11-12 (NKJV)

11 And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the [a]mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, 12 so that

‘Seeing they may see and not perceive,
And hearing they may hear and not understand;
Lest they should turn,
And their sins be forgiven them.’ ”
