“A Wisdom Session”

“A Wisdom Session”
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.
Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries

My Pastor kicked off the first Wednesday Night Service of 2012 with “a wisdom session.”  He gave us some tough love about moving through life with less speed and more precision.  When it comes to reaching goals, it’s more about being precise in what you’re doing.  For example, think of a game of darts.  If you aim for the bullseye, you may hit it or at least get close to it.  That’s because you have a goal and a target.  If you throw the darts with speed, but no aim, what’s the point?

1 Corinthians 9:26-27 (NIV)
Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.  No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. 

Just because you get hit, doesn’t mean you stop moving.  Like a running back in football (for example Reggie Bush –one of my favorite former Saint’s players *wink wink*), grab a helmet and a towel and be prepared for the fight.  We have to stay focused.

Bishop Robertson, then offered some practical advice for couples struggling financially.  We can’t just pray without taking action.
Men: you’re supposed to be the provider for your family
If you don’t have a job, get one.  Don’t just pray and wait for the “perfect job,” while your wife is working.

Women:  you’re supposed to be your husband’s help-meet.
If you’re a house wife and your husband is struggling, find work to help supplement the income.

Something to think about: You have to know when it’s time to move and when it’s time to wait.   What season are you in?  It’s important to hear God’s voice and work within His timing.
