Vote 4 God

One of the core values of ITMH is all things at all times are either for Him or against Him. Perhaps this scripture means different things to different people. We just say “Vote For God.”

Matthew and Luke said, “whoever is not with me is against me.”

Perhaps this means different things to different people. We believe that every thought, every word and every action should be for Him. Using the scriptures from Matthew and Luke, if we are not thinking, saying or acting for God, those things are against Him.

Then moving forward in Matthew to verses 12:36-37, read “I tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

If our words have such importance, then our actions are much more. Our thoughts determine our words, so we also believe they are judged. That is a real challenge to do all things for Him, huh? In other words, idle entertainment and worthless pursuits are against Him in our view. I can tell you what that means to me.

For over 25 years, I chased the almighty buck with the good ole boys. I was deeply troubled by the verse from Matthew and Luke. Call it a thorn in my side. I was richly blessed in the largest corporation in the world to make huge bucks with unending benefits. I ran a billion dollar a month account. Still, no matter how hard I tried to pray, worship and help others, I felt it wasn’t enough.

Today, I pass on our stories for free in hopes others won’t need to be so troubled. I don’t know if you think secular work is OK with God or not. Maybe this will help you, either way. I believe we work to glorify God period. In my case, the wisdom I gained was only training for serving Him with it. Now, I assess everything in me as voting for Him or against Him, with no gray area.

I try to challenge myself to learn all I can. Then, I challenge myself to do as much for others as I can. Jesus told the rich man (in Matthew, Mark and Luke), “If you wish to be perfect, go sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” After that, he told His disciples, it is harder for a rich man to enter heaven than to drive a camel through the eye of a needle. Notice that Jesus told the man to give his riches to the poor. Do you give to the poor?

Right now, I am providing free knowledge. My areas of focus are support of communities, organizations, families and individuals. I try to humbly weave common sense with the Bible for living a godly life each day.

Perhaps, if I even had the energy to serve my job, give time to my family, manage my finances, care for our home, serve my church, act for charity and learn – I could have felt OK about the limited time I had for prayer, study and following Him. Perhaps, it was my relaxation and unwinding time that bothered me.

Jesus spent time casting out demons. What are you doing to actively fight against satan?

I became a slave to my things. Jesus had warned me, just as I am alerting you. Now, I am heeding His advice. Whenever you can, glorify Him with your thoughts, words and actions. Make that foremost at all times. The more we serve Him, the better. Vote for God.
