It’s Time to get Serious!

Day 17

We’ve made it over the hump… the half way point, but also another hump… we are entering the 4 digit figure (financially), with today’s addition of $655.36 , our collection is finally over the $1000 mark, in fact, we are now at … $1,310.71 (131,071 pennies). That is absolutely fantastic, and ya wanna hear the best part, from this point on, it starts to jump by leaps and bounds, so hold onto your seat, we are in for quite the ride.

Now for even better news, if you recall, we told you recently that pennies actually represented people and, as we share, what we know, with people we come in contact with, and guide them into our sphere of influence (or as we mentioned last time, bring them to the point of accepting Christ as Savior and choosing to make Him the Lord of their lives), our network grows, exponentially and, based on these figures, we would now have 131,071 people. WOW!

So, in just 17 generations (a generation happens each time someone, whom you brought in, brings in another), we have influenced over a hundred and thirty thousand individual people; and you said you don’t know that many people; but, guess what, now, they all know you because, each time you go out and share with a new person about Christ, sooner or later, the story of how you got started with all this will, inevitably, be brought out and, your name, as well as ours, and all the people in between, will be brought up and your individual sphere of influence continues to grow.

I am reminded of one of our first posts, in this Blog, when we were discussing the idea that, as time goes on and our collection grows that, we would eventually get to the place where we could no longer see a way to come up with the money needed for our collection. I don’t know whether you have reached that point or maybe you passed it long ago but in either event, we commented that when you reach that point, you would need to rely on help from your sphere of influence.

We need to clarify a point here; we are not saying that the idea of doing all this is for the purpose of using people for your own gain, quite the contrary. As we have pointed out many times during the process of this Blog, our purpose and, consequently, your purpose is to help people improve the life they were given; be it financially, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially or spiritually because EVERYONE can use a helping hand, even if they don’t see it.

We ALL need to look beyond our own needs and help someone else who may be struggling in one of these areas. As we have said, time and time again, you may think you can’t help, but if you look around, you will find someone who needs a friend or a word of encouragement and, even if your life is so miserable that you can’t even fathom getting up and making your way through another day, it is a proven fact that, if you take the time to be nice to people, eventually, you will start to feel better about yourself and, as you start to feel better, you begin to open yourself up to opportunities that you were unable to see before.

We can tell you, from personal experience, that everything we have written in this Blog is true and will work for you because, it does for us. God is real and His Word is True and when you choose to do things His way, your life will get better.

For those of you who somehow managed to get this far and are still uncertain about all this “God stuff”, let us assure you that, we are still here for you and we will continue to help you in any way we can; and, the teaching we have given here, will still work because the principles involved in this teaching will work for anyone who applies them properly. Our experience has shown that, even though the principles will work without having God in your life, they work way better with His help because, after all, it was God that set those principles in motion in the first place and He promised that, as long as time exists, seed time and harvest will continue.

Seed Time and Harvest are the principles we have been talking about from day one. Just like the farmer who tosses seed on the ground and waters it and expects a crop to grow, we also share love and compassion and guidance and finances and anything else a person may need, in order to improve the quality of their life; and, as we said in the beginning, when people see that you genuinely care for them, they will WANT TO reciprocate and do something for you, this is the harvest.

There are people who say to give without expecting anything in return and we agree, to the point that you do not ask the person you have helped, to return the favor; but, like the farmer, you should expect a return on your giving, it is a part of the principle, the thing is that you need to trust that, as you help someone, with no strings attached, the harvest will come; and, you need to be ready to pick the crop when it arrives, just like the farmer does; and, then make sure to keep planting more seed.

So, regardless of your own personal convictions and beliefs, when you follow these principles, you will reap a harvest and be successful and, when you choose to do it God’s way, it can only get better; but, either way, we are always here for you, as will your network of new friends; so, if you ever need help or advice, leave us a comment and let us know how we can help.

In the mean time, God Bless and we’ll catch ya on the flip side!
