METRON 11-12-17 – Part II – CLEAR INTENTIONS: Moving Your Life in the Right Direction Through The Power of Yes and No
I – “But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’ [a firm yes or no]; anything more than that comes from the evil one.”
(Matthew 5:37 – AMP)
II – “I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit.”
(Revelation 3:15, 16 – The Message)
III – “When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.” – Paulo Coelho
IV – “Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving].”
(II Corinthians 9:7 – AMPC)
V – “It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.”
(Matthew 6:21 – The Message)
VI – “Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.” — Tony Robbins
VII – “Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.
Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip. Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step,and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust.”
(Proverbs 4:23-27 – The Message)
