"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1)
Win-Win Mentality: Helping others to get a job in his workplace not fearing of losing his own job works out well for all.
Crab mentality is disgraceful to humanity and anti-Jesus. We should live not by the failure of others but by uplifting and sharing what you have with the mental health of abundance. God is benevolent in caring and feeding for his creation. When you share the bread not thinking that you will get less, it makes the bread more tasty and fulfilling. When you focus on an abundance mentality, you are able to see that there is enough for everyone. And you can see that balancing your confidence with empathy can help you achieve your goals while helping others achieve theirs. Thinking in a win- win mind set allows you to see mutual benefits from all your interactions. That is God’s promise for those to whom the Lord is their shepherd.
Mathew was the manager in Citi Bank in Toronto, Canada at the time of acute recession in 1996-1997 when many people lost their jobs. Even at the fear and expense of his own job, he helped two others to get into his department. Today, all three are in good positions and live happily in Canada with abundance.
Now think about where you and me stand - are we ready to help others or look away ?
Prayer: Jesus, help us to get employment in this time of economic recession. Let those who are in you recommend, refer and help others to get employment. We pray for those who help and for those who are being helped. We pray for Mathew and his Godly mind-set. Let more Mathews be born in this world. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
