Is Your Dog Walking You? - #6402
God's fullest blessing comes through His gifts, not through men's loans. Besides, you look silly being run all over by a debt that you should be running. Remember that the next time you see a dog walking a man. That could be you and your debts.
The Greatest Enemy of the Best - #6396
We all have a hard time waiting for God to deliver what He promised. So we try to help Him. So, what's the greatest enemy of God's best? Impatience. We are the microwave generation. We get 30-second solutions to every problem in commercials. We like fast food. We want God's provision, but we want it now.
Daddy's Smile - #6321
Maybe there's an area of your life right now that's particularly frustrating, and you've tried everything. You've worked harder, you've planned, you've used every trick you know. Could it be you're missing God's blessing on it? Is there in that part of your life something He can't bless: an attitude, a secret sin, a relationship, a method you are using to go about getting it, an untruth maybe? So often the answer to frustration is not greater effort, it's greater obedience.
When It's Just Not Working - #6287
That broken relationship, and you know which one it is, is breaking God's heart. Do everything in your power to take down the walls that might be costing you the blessing of almighty God.

Window of heaven - a Christian perspective
God stands ready to bless us with the vast resources at His disposal--all we need to do is ask. Here, God challenges Christians to ask Him for what they need, and see if He doesn't open the gates of heaven and flood them with blessings in response.
Contempt - a Christian perspective
How do you respond to the blessings God showers down on your life? Are you thankful for them, and do you turn around and put them to good use in His service? Or do you show contempt for them by refusing to acknowledge them?
When You're Tired of a Small, Small World - #3345
God's been waiting for you to get tired of your small, small world - so tired that you would fall on your knees before Him and trust Him to make your life so much bigger - bigger than you ever thought it could be.
May the Lord bless you - a Christian perspective
This famous greeting, which calls for God's blessing on the other person, is still used today in many Christian worship services around the world.
Disobey in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Throughout the Bible, God provided blessings to those who obeyed Him and followed His commands; and curses to those who disobeyed Him. God often went far out of His way to try to bring His people back into obedience, so spare them the punishment that their disobedience merited.
