THOSE WHO TAKE SHORTCUT WILL END UP TAKING THE LONG ROAD “BEWARE”
Those who go 25years imprison for Drog case has come out and start hustling at the old age when their bone is no longer strong. And those who think they have succeeded through shortcut and end their life in luxurious will not make sense because they miss the Wisdom they would have grab through tough time.
It is easier to take shortcuts in building a home, It is cheaper to use lesser materials. And for awhile, no one may notice, But somewhere along the line, you will pay for your inferior workmanship.
It is easier to accuse someone of not helping others, but we find it very difficult to help. Jesus said, blessed are those that gives than those who receive, but we enjoy receiving than giving. And my question is, don’t we like blessings?
It is easier to cheat. It is quicker to simply memorize a list of answers. And your grades will look just as good on a job application or an application to college, But someday you will asked to express an intelligent thought on your own, and your laziness will be exposed.
The same is true for your spiritual life, It is easier to go with the crowd, It takes less time and energy if you simply maintain a superficial faith, And frankly, most of the time, who can really tell the difference anyway? It’s easier to just show up for church for an hour a week than it is to develop spiritual roots.
It is easier to talk about caring for others than it is to actually care, It is easier to talk about sharing your faith than it is to build bridges with others, It is easier to talk about commitment than to be committed, It is impossible for us to tell who is genuine in their faith and who is not until the time of trial comes, You and I both know that this is true.
Everybody sounds like a believer when times are good. When God is giving us what we want, we are all cheering for Him, True faith comes when we are called to trust Him in the dark. When a person faces loss, or disappointment, or things simply don’t go as expected, we get to see what their faith is really made of.
The person who has a deep foundation, Trusts God’s wisdom when life is confusing, Relies on God’s strength when they are weak, Looks beyond the present heartache to God’s purpose and eternal glory, Relies on grace in times of personal failure instead of taking shortcut, Runs TO God rather than away from Him, I often tell people at a grave-site that the grave is where the rubber of our faith meets the road, It is easy to profess faith when life is good, it is more difficult to believe when you stand at the grave of one you love, That is the time when you must ask a tough question,
Do I really believe, or don’t I?
The reason why I see gambling as a sin is that it is in the corridor of shortcut. Never take shortcut, because it is rubbing yourself WISDOM. A wise man who knows the LAW is greater than King!
