We vs Me... - August 20, 2023

Throughout scripture... there are really two camps... a WE or a ME... the We’s... that would be Peter, you know when he tells the Good Lord, I have left everything for YOU... remember Peter was married... he is all about the WE... what about Veronica and her veil... she didn’t care about the guards, being pushed, spit upon, ridiculed... she wanted our Savior’s face on her veil... and because she does... you and I... WE benefited still 2000 years later... the good thief... he may have started out to be an I, but he ultimately was a WE... he wanted everyone to know... publically on the cross... that he was with Christ... he was now with the... THE WE!!! But for every WE there is a... ME... its all about ME... that would be Judas for all I care about in the money... King Herod, all I care about is ME and MY Kingdom... What about the other thief, if you are God, get off that cross and take me with you... its all about helping ME!!!

Well, here we sit 2000 years later... where do you and I sit... are we a... WE... OR... A... ME!?!? At work, when peopol ask you to do something... to do this or that and its outside your job description... do you complain, say no... its all about ME... or... well... SIMON, do you do it... because you have the gifts... GIVEN to you by God... that you are a WE!!! After work or a long day... and when you get home... do you take time to listen to your spouse, about their day... troubles... headaches, stresses... I mean you did become one right... what God has joined man must not divide... its no longer what is good for me... but WE!!! Will you sit and listen, without offering unsolicited advice which no one is interested in, including the person seeking you... they just want you to listen... to be a WE!!! What about picking up around the house... or do we yell out... that is not my job... I did not dirty this or that... REALLY!!!??? Well aren’t you a piece of work... you live as a family, but you now play the ME card... oh I see, you don’t cook the food, but you can eat it...?!?!?! You can dirty the plate but you can clean it...?!?!?! You can dirty the clothes but you can’t wash them... or if you do wash, wash only your own...?!?!?! HOW DARE YOU... you are part of a family... there is no ME... only WE!!! Is that how you ‘honor’ your parents... is that how you repay for the roof over your head, the food on your plate, the clothes on your back... and head, the foood on your plate, the clothes on your back... and this TEXTING... who said it was ok, to text at meals... the family, the WE is eating... and you are texting your boyfriend, girlfriend, some friend, anyone or evryone... how rude is that... who wants to see the top of your head... you need to get up and go eat by yourself... pay for it too... if you would rather talk or text that person... be man or woman enough to get up and walk away... and not return... it is not about YOU/ME... it is about WE!!!

My friends if Christ... I leave you with this... upon our death you and I... will stand naked and alone before Him... we will see our whole life pass before us... and we will see all te things we did to help others... all the times we were a WE!!! Remember, you don’t get to heaven by only helping yourself... you must be a WE... and how will you know... after your judgment... when you finally get in front of a gate... and you do no... DO NOT RECOGNIZE ANYONE... because you are a ME... and helped no one... YOU ARE AT THE WRONG GATE... AND there is nothing that can be done about it... AMEN!!
