TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

This week in July will always be special in my heart. This is the week of our anniversary. When people all around us are separating, or divorcing, we have managed to stay together for thirty seven years. Some have asked how we have managed or did it take lots of work. I have to answer honestly - no, it didn't take much work, BUT it has taken faithfulness, trust, and a willingness to admit 'I was wrong' over all these years. If a marriage is not built on a solid foundation of trust in each other, it's hard to stay together. You won't admit that YOU might have a problem, and that can lead to being unfaithful. You've heard it said that 'the grass is greener on the other side', so one of you is going to want to investigate. Don't!! The LOVE OF GOD can change all that from a 'wrong marriage' to a 'right marriage'. You may not have gotten started out on the 'right foot', but when you turn your life and marriage over to Him, He can get you on the 'right foot' to a healthy and happy marriage.

Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

O God, when my faith gets overladen with dust, blow it clean with the wind of your Spirit. When my habits of obedience get stiff and rusty, anoint them with the oil of your Spirit. Restore the enthusiasm of my first love for you.

MY FACE IN THE MIRROR

My face in the mirror Isn't wrinkled or drawn.
My house isn't dirty
The cobwebs are gone.
My garden looks lovely
And so does my lawn.
I think I might never
Put my glasses back on...

MEMORANDUM

Importance: High

TO: Jesus, Son of Joseph
The Wood crafter's Carpenter Shop
Nazareth 25922

FROM: Jordan Management Consultants
Jerusalem 26544

RE: Personnel Evaluations

Thank you for submitting the resumes of the twelve men you have picked for managerial positions in your new organization. All of them have now taken our battery of tests, and we have not only run the results through our computers, but also arranged personal interviews for each of them with our psychologist and vocation aptitude consultant.

It is the opinion of the staff that most of your nominees are lacking in background, education and vocational aptitude for the type of enterprise you are undertaking. They do not have the team concept. We would recommend that you continue your search for persons of experience in managerial ability and proven capacity. We have summarized the findings of our study below:

Simon Peter is emotional, unstable and given to fits of temper.

Andrew has absolutely no quality of leadership.

The two brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, place personal interests above Company loyalty.

Thomas demonstrates a questioning attitude that would tend to undermine morale.

We believe it is our duty to tell you that Matthew has been blacklisted by the Greater Jerusalem Better Business Bureau.

James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus, definitely have radical leanings.

Additionally, they both registered high scores on the manic depressive Scale.

However, one of the candidates shows great potential. He's a man of ability and resourcefulness; he is a great networker; has a keen business mind; and has strong contacts in influential circles. He's highly motivated, very ambitious and adept with financial matters. We recommend Judas Iscariot as your Controller and Chief Operating Officer.

All the other profiles are self-explanatory. We wish you the utmost success in your new venture.

--------------------------------------------------------------

What if Jesus had chosen the twelve based on the modern methods of leadership selection? Most of them would have never had a chance to participate.

Jesus chooses people not for who they are, but for what they can become in Him.

Aren't you glad that when Jesus looked at you, He didn't take you for what you were (a sinner); but He took you for what you could be? Jesus sees the potential in all of us, and has called us to be disciples.

Jesus is still saying, "Follow Me!"
