Darla (not her real name) is a popular hair stylist that works for a high-end salon. Her clients include political figures, business professionals, and banking executives. By contacting www.DavidRoseMinistries.com, she and I had a most remarkable conversation.
Recently, one of her elderly clients died, and his widow asked Darla to prepare his hair for the funeral. This particular client had immigrated to the United States from an impoverished country. He never forgot his roots, even though he became the owner of many successful companies.
Whenever Darla cut his hair, he would speak of his friends and family “back home,” and express his admiration and love for the USA. He told her that he prayed for the prosperity of America because it enabled him to send finances to the needy. Isn’t that a refreshing viewpoint?
Because Darla also cut the hair of the deceased clients’ adult son, he came by for an appointment ahead of the funeral. He confirmed that his father was extremely generous and further explained what the father had done to help others “back home.” Through his personal finances, the father had built and maintained a school for disadvantaged children, dug many water wells, supported destitute relatives, and much more.
Occasionally, family members would caution the generous benefactor to not give away too much. But he would say, “I want to leave this world as I came – with nothing.” He intended to give it all away before he died.
Darla shared how this had impacted her life and she wanted some guidance from me on how to be more big-hearted. You see, generosity cultivates generosity. Givers encourage people to exchange their selfish microscope for a selfless telescope. We must focus our eyes on others rather than our own pesky needs.
Ecclesiastes 5:15 (NIV) states, “Everyone comes naked from their mother's womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.” The Apostle Paul taught in 1 Timothy 6:7 (NIV), “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”
Maybe it is time to consider the words above: “I want to leave this world as I came – with nothing.” What would that mean to you? How could you make that happen? Or, possibly you reject the whole idea of giving it away. What is the alternative? Think it over, my friend.
Gloria Gaither wrote: “If you want more happy than your heart will hold. If you want to stand taller if the truth were told. Take whatever you have, and give it away. If you want less lonely and a lot more fun. And deep satisfaction when the day is done. Then throw your heart wide open and give it away.”
Oh, and you cannot outgive God. (Luke 6:38).
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

Texas History & God
Wednesday - October 28, 2020
Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you?
Romans 2:1-4 NLT - You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things. And we know that God, in his justice, will punish anyone who does such things. Since you judge others for doing these things, why do you think you can avoid God’s judgment when you do the same things? Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin.
Prayer: Dear Lord - The scripture today reminds me that I am saved by your marvelous grace. I am unworthy of your love. But in Christ, I have the promise of Salvation and Eternal Life. Help me to be obedient and faithful to You. In the name of Jesus I pray.

For stay at home Christians...
We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home. The coronavirus has closed many churches.
Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.
There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 ESV
In this passage, the Apostle Peter broaches a subject that is both old and new at the same time. 2 Peter 3:4 KJV – “And saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
Here, Peter briefly presents an argument he had faced from those who had given up on the teaching that Christ would return to the earth and set up His Kingdom. The naysayers looked around them and saw nothing that fulfilled Bible prophecy. The sun came up every day as expected, and the seasons changed as always, but Jesus had not returned. Their conclusion was that the “Promise” of Christ was null and void.
Jesus had clearly stated that He would return again in John 14:3. The angels boldly announced at the Ascension of Christ that this same Jesus would return (Acts 1:11). The Apostles preached with unity and anointing that Jesus was going to return to bring His people to Himself, and to establish a Kingdom of righteousness and peace Acts 10:42; 1 Peter 4:5, Philippians 4:5).
Peter explains more in the next verse. But remember, Jesus keeps His word. Get ready!
