Your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:18
Typically, as we age we lose our prominence and our positions of influence. Even those of us who have never sought the limelight seem increasingly to fade into the shadows.
Obscurity and anonymity are good, however, for it is difficult to perform in public without wondering what impression were making on others. We fret over the extent that our reputations are being enhanced or damaged. And therein lies our peril: To the degree that we seek human recognition, we forfeit Gods approval. On the other hand, to lose the admiration of men and women may turn us to seek Gods approval only.
Here is a test for our gifts, our prayers, our fasts: Are they done for Gods eyes only? If so, though overlooked and unnoticed by others, we have our Fathers acknowledgment and reward.
Three times Jesus repeated to His disciples: Your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly (Matt. 6:4,6,18). This is our assurance as well. Every unobserved gift of time, energy, and love; every petition we whisper in our Fathers ears; every secret, inward struggle against sin and self-indulgence will be fully rewarded in due time. In the end, His Well done, good and faithful servant is all that will matter (Matt. 25:21).

The Budweiser Story
(not a joke) This is TRUE!
How Budweiser handled those
who laughed at those
who died on the 11th of September,
Thought you might like to know
what happened in a little town north
of Bakersfield, California.
You may feel this is worth sharing
On September 11th, a Budweiser
employee was making a delivery to
a convenience store in a California
town named McFarland.
He knew of the tragedy that
had occurred in New York when he
entered the business to find the two
Arabs, who owned the business,
whooping and hollering to show their
approval and support of this
The Budweiser employee went
to his truck, called his boss and told him
of the very upsetting event! He didn't
feel he could be in that store with those
His boss asked h im,
"Do you think you could go in there
long enough to pull every Budweiser
product and item our beverage company
sells there? We'll never deliver
to them again."
The employee walked in,
proceeded to pull every single
product his beverage company provided
and left with an incredible grin
on his face. He told them never to
bother to call for a delivery again.
Budweiser happens to be the beer of
choice for that community.
Just letting you know how Kern County
handled this situation.
Now the Rest of the Story:
It seems that the Bud driver
and the Pepsi man are neighbors.
Bud called Pepsi and told him.
Pepsi called his bo ss who
told him to pull all Pepsi products as
well!!! That would include Frito
Furthermore, word spread and
all vendors followed suit! At
last report, the store was closed
Good old American Passive-Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!
America needs to know that
we're all working together!
Most I have never seen before
Now that's what I call American Justice. Top of the morning to you!
Top of the morn back to you. (and it is really early morn where you are) When I saw that was a california story I wanted to ping you. I recall the story via email right after 911 & sent it out to all my email list.
Already up for 3 hours today! 0430 wake up time for this 37-year old! Someone has to do it!
