Go watch the ants, you lazy person. Watch what they do and be wise. Ants have no commander, no leader or ruler, but they store up food in the summer and gather their supplies at harvest. Proverbs 6:6
Learn from the ants
They have no ruler because they works for a queen.
We christians don’t need a leader to tell us what to do, because we do everything for our king Jesus!
You don’t need anyone to push us. That’s the attitude!
The ant is a symbol of THE POWER OF FAMILY
An ant can carry many times their own body weight.
This is what a Christian is like with the Holy Spirit.
But an ant can do nothing alone.
But together they can change a landscape.
When we as a Christian family work together, nothing can stop us.
The ants live for their community
Everyone steps back with their dream, to benefit the community.
The community is the most important thing.
Uniting for the same vision.
It’s about giving up your dream because of the dream of Jesus.
This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave his life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16
Ants are symbol of EXCELLENT TEAMWORK
Just like this church.
When parents see their children’s problems as opportunities to build the relationship instead of as negative, burdensome irritations, it totally changes the nature of parent-child interaction.
Parents become more willing even excited, about deeply understanding and helping their children.
When a child cames to them with a problem, instead of thinking, “Oh no! Not another proboblem!” their paradigm is, “Here is a great opportunity for me to really help my child and to invest in our relationship.”
Many interactions change from transactional to transformational, and strong bonds of love and trust are created as children sense the value parents give to their problems and to them as individuals.
There will always be people around you that will criticize you. They are jealous and want to bring you down. People that don’t support you. Never let people around you set the limits in your life. You will always have people that will never believe your dreams will come true.
They will say you are…
- too poor
- too uneducated
- too young
- too crazy
You don’t have what it takes. You grow up in the wrong family – In the country…
Sometimes you have to have the faith that stands alone.
Because the dream God has given to you – is in YOU. NOT IN OTHER PEOPLE.
I AM MY FUTURE!
I can do all things through Jesus, because he gives me strength.
Take care of your thoughts for they will become words.
Take care of your words because they will become actions.
Take care of your words because they will become habits.
Take care of your habits because they will form your character.
Take care of your character because that will be your destiny.
YOU ARE YOUR FUTURE
- I am not who the police say I am.
- I am not who the teachers say I am.
- I am not who my friends say I am.
- I am not who my enemies say I am.
- I am not who the devil says I am.
I am who God says I am.
God says I am …
I am a child of the living God.
I can do all things through Jesus, because he gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
I am who God says I am.
Who do you think you are?
We are always waiting for the perfect opportunity.
You’re probably working on a job or project right now and saying,
‘This is boring, let’s just deal with it and get it over with.
We’ll make the next one good.’
Whatever is on your desk right now, that’s the one.
Make THIS the best you possibly can.
It may not be great, but at least you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you did the best you possibly could, and you may learn something from it.
And you’re always free to do an alternative that does satisfy your creative standards.
Great opportunities don’t just come along.
That’s true, even if you’ve earned a reputation for doing good work (although that helps).
Give your very best – all the time!
If you want to do something great? Here is the key.
Whoever can be trusted with a little can also be trusted with a lot, and whoever is dishonest with a little is dishonest with a lot. Luke 16:10
Be faithful in the little things!
Make this year a year of being faithful in the small things.
The things that are not seen by others.
The hard work no one will ever thank you.
Successful solutions are often made by people
rebelling against bad opportunities.

We live in a mediocrity world
People perform one way when people are watching and another if no one is watching.
If we are not watching, we will get pulled in to become just like that.
Don’t sink down to that level.
“Yes, but everybody is not working so hard if the boss isn’t there. A few minutes late isn’t that bad. Everybody has a mess around their house.”
You are not everybody!
You should be the example at your company.
You do more than you should.
And, yes, you will get the promotion.
You represent God!
If you give your very best, you are giving honor to God.
People are not reading the bible, they are reading you.
Do more than you have to.
If you cut corners and came late, look unmotivated…
You’ll wonder why you don’t get a promotion.
God doesn’t reward sloppiness Continue reading Stop The Mediocrity
