Let’s clear up some of the major myths concerning money.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
MYTH #1: “Money means nothing to me.” Well, if money means nothing to you, sell all that you have and give it to the poor. To which you might respond, “That wouldn’t be very wise. How would we eat and pay our bills?” Money clearly means something to you — to all of us. So, to say that money means nothing to you is simply an untrue statement  and you are either lying or in denial.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
MYTH #2: “Money is the key to happiness.” Now, rarely will a person actually make a statement like that. Most people know this isn’t true. But in the heart of hearts of many, there is the mentality that, “If I can just focus on how to ,are MORE money, I can buy the things that will make me happy.” That’s really what the philosophy is all about. Yet, her is the irony — the mor affluent the culture, it’s uncanny how ,ice lord often unhappiness is the result.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
MYTH #3: “Money is the root of all evil.” Very often this comes from Christians who think they are making a very Biblical and spiritual statement and even credit the Bible as the source. WRONG. That isn’t what the Bible says. Today’s Scripture is the source of the TRUTH about money:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it, have wandered away from faith and pierced themselves with many a grief.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Money, in and of itself, is neither good nor bad. It is what we Do with money that messes a difference. When used correctly, money can b a wonderful tool that God can use in a way that is pleasing to Him and helpful to others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What’s yours?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You could be a contractor, a CEO, a doctor, a high school jock, or a homecoming Queen. Or maybe your identity is in my marital status: married, single, divorced, or widowed. Perhaps, you are known as an adulterer, a liar, or maybe you’re known as a kind and responsible person. All people are known by SOMETHING that, in some way, identifies who they are.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God’s Word tells us that we can take on a new identity when we are compelled by the love of God that is found in Christ. In other words, when our spiritual eyes are opened and we finally see how much God loves us, we can’t help but respond to His love and give our hearts and lives to Christ in faith. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Paul, who wrote 2 Corinthians 5:17, had been a religion terrorist. He was headed out to arrest, persecute and kill Christians when he encountered the Risen Christ. He repented (which means he changed what he thought of Jesus in a way that changed the focus of his life) and became a devoted follower of Christ. From religious terrorist to a Christian. How’s that for a complete change of identity?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trusting means believing with our minds what the Bible tells us who Jesus is. He’s the Son of God. It involves believing that He died on the cross and rose from the dead. That’s all-important, but believing that with our minds doesn’t make us Christians. It’s an essential part, but true belief is also entrusting our hearts and our lives to Christ completely. We want to follow Him. It’s a decision of the heart and of the mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you made that decision? Have you taken on a new identity as a follower of Jesus? He promises to give us a new identity— forever— when we trust in Him.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rfthministries #dailydevo #dailydevotion #dailytruth #dailydevotional #quiettime #quiettimewithgod #godtime #bible #bibleverse #biblestories #biblescripture #faith #faithjourney #faithjournaling #christian #christianlife #christianliving #identityWhich statement best describes your prayer life?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) I pray when things aren’t going well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) I pray when I have a need or want.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) I pray throughout the day, as a natural part of my relationship with God.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you answered 1) or 2), then there’s a good chance your prayer life is feeling a bit dull or even disappointing. Perhaps a growing list of seemingly unanswered prayers has caused you to become cynical about the very idea of prayer. So, why is prayer important and what does a thriving “expectant” prayer life look like?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prayer should be a natural part of our daily communication with God. Just like open and honest communication is vital for maintaining and strengthening any relationship, prayer is key in building our relationship with God. And no matter whether your prayer life is thriving or on life support, we can always stand to grow in this area of communicating with our Heavenly Father. So, what does Jesus have to say on the subject?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ASK — This doesn’t mean the answer will always be ‘yes.’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Luke 11:11)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SEEK — You won’t always find the answer instantly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
KNOCK — Prayer often requires persistence.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Luke 11:5-13)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A thriving prayer life ultimately stems from a thriving relationship with God. When “asking, seeking, and knocking” are done in the context of an honest, consistent, and trusting relationship with God, you’ll find yourself praying bigger prayers and holding onto the hope of God’s promises — no matter the answer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The prosperity-theology folks jump all over these verses. In taking them out of context, they develop what has become a false interior the Gospel called the “gospel of greed.” In other words, these verses have been twisted to teach to “give to get” mentality. It’s a self-focused, greed-oriented mindset that is comp,et,eu contrary to Jesus’ teaching.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The TRUE meaning behind these verses is all about putting ourselves in God’s shoes. If you entrust financial resources to a person who is a good money manager, someone who’s learning to be generous in the way God teaches us to be, then it makes sense that more financial resources would be entrusted to that individual.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not giving to God in order to get for ourselves. It’s about giving to God and knowing that He will bless us to be a blessing — perhaps even a greater blessing — to others in the future. And while giving does NOT make someone a Jesus follower, giving generously and joyfully certainly demonstrates that faith.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus says in Matthew 6:21, “Where your treasure is there your heart will be also.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus knew that the biggest barrier to trusting God completely will usually be up relationship with money. And in most of our lives, even in the church, we too often place more trust in our money, job, or bank account that we do in God. One way to combat that is through generosity. How I’ll you live and give generously? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jerusalem was experiencing a time of famine and Paul was preparing the believers in Corinth for a special offering to help out. But Paul didn’t want this offering to be a casual, whatever spare change happens to be on hand, kind of afterthought. No, Paul wanted them to give PURPOSEFULLY, taking the time to think, plan and pray about their contribution.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s nothing wrong with 5e impulse-driven, emotional giving, but as a whole, we are going to be MORE generous and MORE faithful, through purposeful, planned, and prayerful giving. So, to help us out, God gives us a starting point : the tithe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A tithe is 10% of what we earn.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Abraham set the example of this kind of giving (Genesis 14:20) when he offered a tithe in appreciation of God’s blessings in his life. This is the example we as believers are to follow — but it’s only the first step. It’s the starting point of giving. Why?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Tithing acknowledges Gods ownership of all we have. We’re simply managers of God’s financial resources, which are entrusted to us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Tithing is an act of TRUST that God will meet our needs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Jesus spoke on the importance of the heart behind tithing. (Matt. 23:23)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The tithe is the starting line in living and giving generously. It’s about planning and praying and being intentional, not just in how we live day to day, but in how we USE all the financial resources that God has entrusted to us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How will you be more faithful and purposeful with your giving this year?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus teaches that when it comes to our sins, there’s no a,isn’t if being “good” enough or “religious” enough that can ever come close to covering the costs if our sin. It’s just an impossible debt to relay. That’s why God sent Jesus to willingly pay that sin debt IN OUR PLACE through His death on the cross. In doing so, Jesus chose to offer us forgiveness that we could never earn or deserve. It’s forgiveness u like anything this world has ever known — and it’s available for a,k who put their faith in Him.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it doesn’t stop there. Jesus clearly teaches that we are to forgive others who sin against us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this certainly doesn’t mean EVERYONE, right? What about those who simply show no remorse? Forgiving when the other person is sorry is one thing, but how do we forgive those who truly don’t care? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Matthew 6:14-15, Jesus is talking s out forgiveness as a decision of the will — no matter the injury. After all,even the biggest of “sins” others commit towards us is nothing compared to how we’ve sinned against God — by sending Jesus to the cross. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So do you need to forgive?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

That’s a pretty intimidating standard, especially when we know that people WILL wrong us — in big and small ways. So, how exactly do we forgive, especially when facing cruel, unjust actions?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First, let’s look at what forgiveness is NOT: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Forgiveness is NOT forgetting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Forgiveness is being able to remember what happened, and choosing to figure anyways. It’s letting go of the power that person or even has on you today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Forgiveness does NOT equal naïveté.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In other words, if a business partner cheats you, then as a Christian you’re called to forgive him or her. You’re NOT called to then enter into another business agreement with them. The same goes for personal relationships. Forgiveness does not mean you HAVE to continue in relationship with that person, sometimes clear boundaries need to be set. Other times, it’s distance or walking away from that particular situation or individual. Don’t mistake forgiveness for naïveté.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Forgiveness does NOT mean lack of consequences.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both the Old and New Testament teach clearly on the I,portable of adhering to God ordained earthly authorities of the day. This includes parents, teachers, supervisors, and all others who administer law and order, handing out justice fairly and objectively. The point is that justice shouldn’t be carried out in anger and vengeance. Ultimately, God will have the final judgment.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So why do we forgive? Because Jesus forgave us. Jesus understood pain, betrayal, injustice... He experienced all these things and more when we willingly went to the cross for OUR sins. Why? Because He wanted us to experience the freedom of His forgiveness so that we could forgive others .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s always easier to look back at a situation with clarity — especially once we know the outcome. Like that time your company downsized and your job was suddenly gone. In the months following, you were consumed with fear and uncertainty. Only when looking back, could you see how the experience brought you closer to God, ad you had no choice but to trust Him to provide. And He did — that unexpected job loss gave you the push you needed to pursue that career change in a new industry. But in the moment? Fear, panic, uncertainty... the future was anything but clear.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As Moses led the children of Israel from captivity in Egypt, they faced a similar situation. Would they trust God to lead us he, into the unknown or remain stuck in Egyptian captivity? Knowing the full story of how God miraculously provided and ultimately led them into the promised land, it’s hard to imagine anyone longing to remain in slavery. But in that moment, all they could see was a powerful army behind the, and the Red Sea before them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In their fear, the known pain and suffering at the hands of the Egyptians was more appealing than the unknown into which God was calling them to step.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankfully, Moses chose to trust God to provide a way. What courage it must have taken to move forward in faith while surrounded by the fears of the people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve all had moments in life when confronted with a choice: step into the unknown or let fear keep you trapped. Where is God asking you to follow Him into the unknown? When God calls you to move, He will make a way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of the most familiar, if not THE most familiar verse in the Bible, is the entire gospel summed up in one sentence: God loves us. God provided a Savior in His Son, Jesus, but we must put our complete trust and faith in Him. By doing so, we can enjoy abundant life spent with our Creator God both now in this life and in Heaven for all eternity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But if we don’t, then we can’t ignore the fact that there is an eternity to be spent: Heaven for believers and Hell for those who don’t. The God of heaven and earth gives each of us a choice. It’s a choice of eternity with Him. No one else can make that choice for us. And yet, God’s love is so great that He gave His own Son, Jesus, to save us from the fate of our sin and make our eternity secure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eternity is certainly a bigger concept than any of us can fully grasp — that God in His love for us, offers His Holy Spirit to help us understand our need for Him and envelop us with His peace as that relationship is secure. Reach out to Him. Trust Him. He is who He says He is and God will save you for eternity!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In fact, we’re all naturally selfish. Think about it— you never have to teach a baby how to WANT what they want, when they want it! Selfishness is a result of fallen man that goes all the way back to Adam and Eve wanting what they were not supposed to have.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When a person come to the realization that he or she really is tapped in the hopelessness of sin and selfishness, the search for a savior begins. That Savior, however, isn’t found in a list of good works or in more self-discipline. Jesus is the only ONE able to bridge the gap between sinful man and a Holy God. For sinless Jesus, took upon OUR sins to pay the penalty for them once and for all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sin will exist in the life of a new believer,  it that sin has been forgiven and wiped away. The new desire in our life is to be more and more like Jesus in our words and deeds. As we trust Him and l arm to walk with Him in faith, our lives. Elgin to change. We surrender our will for HIS will as we want to please Him more then ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesé displayed this while praying before heading to the cross in Luke 22:42. He knew what was to come, and yet, He trusted Father God completely. He submitted HIS natural will to that of His Father’s.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You and I are faced with decisions between selfishness and goodness every day. It’s hard to give up what we want or desire form a worldly or pleasure per, but that still small voice of the Holy Spirit will always prompt us to submit to God’s will over our own. Will you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An Update From Bryant !

 

Many who are part of our Right From The Heart
family may not know that I have been the Senior
Pastor of Johnson Ferry Church in Marietta,
Georgia, for the last 37 years. A few months ago,
I felt the Lord leading me to begin the search
process for my successor, which as I’m sure you
can imagine, wasn’t an easy decision to make!
But, it was clear to me that God was the source
of this change, so the church is in the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. Of course, we don’t know how
long this process will take, but we are sure that God’s timing is perfect.

“So,” you ask, “what happens to Right From The
Heart after you step down from pastoring the
church?” Well, I can assure you of one thing:

I STILL PLAN TO LEAD RIGHT FROM THE HEART!

I’m excited that I will have more time to focus
on our mission to “Reach and disciple people
for Jesus Christ through the use of media.” God
has blessed this ministry in so many ways, and I
know that through your continued prayers, your
financial support, and our dedication to be good
stewards of what God has graciously allowed us
to do, we will be able to reach even more people
with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In addition, I will be adding new aspects to our
ministry at RFTH in leading Bible study tours to
Israel and Paul’s missionary journeys, as well
as mentoring younger pastors. I humbly ask for
your prayers for all of us at Right From The Heart
as this transition takes place. Thank you and
may God bless each of you!
