Aloha from Wakiki

I'm drinking coffee this morning from my hotel room in Hawaii. Kathi and I are here for our son's Jeremy's wedding to Crystal Fay... Jeremy is our youngest son and is always a blessing and delight to us. He says that he's not nervous about the marriage and kinda excited... ( you think). Anyway, he and Crystal picked Hawaii because he was working for Seal America up until two weeks ago... and the plan was to go to every state in America and have a communion service on the steps of every capital... which would take Jeremy to every state this year... so as you guessed...He was scheduled to be in Hawaii for his job... so why not have a wedding here... So here we are, some family and a few friends that could make the trek... 18 in number... to witness the wonderful sacrament of the Marriage covenant on the beach of Waikiki. Also I get to be the minister that pronounces them husband and wife. The marriage vows take place today at 3:00pm... I will have some updates over next couple days... got to get some more coffee. Talk soon.

Two weeks into Series

We started a new series called Get Smart... and it's based on God's wisdom to make every area of your life successful. God's word has all the answers for our life... and if we can dig out the wisdom like treasure, we will have things go better for us... Today I talked about making Smart Decisions. Decisions are important, because they project our destiny… The decisions you make; make you… good or bad. I gave some questions to ask ourselves before we make decisions so that we won't continue to make rash decisions based on feelings or intellect, but based on a predictable process…here they are, along with some of the scriptures we used...
1. What does GOD say?
Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe. Proverbs 28:26 NLT
2. Is the TIME right?
Enthusiasm without knowledge is not good. If you act too quickly, you might make a mistake. Proverbs 19:2 NCV
3. What do I need to KNOW?
Get the facts at any price, and hold on tightly to all the good sense you can get. Proverbs 23:23 TLB
Anyone who answers without listening is foolish and confused. Proverbs 18:13 NCV
4. Who can I LISTEN TO?
The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. Proverbs 12:15 NIV The more good advice you get, the more likely you are to win. Proverbs 24:6 TEV Plans succeed through good counsel… Proverbs 20:18 NLT
5. Is it WORTH it?
Don’t trap yourself by making a rash promise to God and only later counting the cost. Proverbs 20:25 NLT
6. Who else is it going to EFFECT?
Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.
Romans 14:12-13 TLB
Ask yourself these questions before you make a decision. they might help you to make better decisions that will pay off in better results... The full teaching should be up on our website by next week... But you can listen to week one now by going to faithcity.tv and clicking on free podcast... Happy Memorial Day... Grace and peace...
