Stay awake for temptation has come

How many times have you pulled a book from the shelf of your library, fully intending to complete several chapters, without distractions? But, only to discover after the second chapter, the story is less interesting, and your eyes began to become heavy and you fell asleep. You are awaken by a sound or something else, as you look around, the book your holding is slightly held in your right hand while your left hand hangs over the chair arm. You realized the full intention of reading on is not of interest. As you search and come to find an overwhelming emotion of sad feelings, of a missed goal.

Most times our best intention doesn’t come true in many applications in life. Lost lovers, missed prom dates, missed meetings, foreclosed house, or a lost job, and even lost hope in corporate and political leadership. Our dysfunctional civilization, clings to hopes and dreams, and if not attained scars us emotionally, unable to comprehend if we live as an advance people.

During times of struggle and lost dreams, the best comes out of us, shining beyond the tragedies of life. What can lessen these tragedies, living righteously propelling our civilization towards the next evolutionary phase? What stifles our ability to advance, sociological, psychological, or technological? We lack the courage to change our evolutionary path. The current value system rewards our consciousness and we feel things are ok. But are they?

Is the wealth dispersion ok with you? Knowing some people on this planet will try to sleep without eating food or to have clean water to drink tonight, are you ok with that? Sure, if you’re rich. How many 1%’ers are ready to walk away from their current paradigm. Give their wealth to the less fortunate, giving control to those who have no control. The 2011 Billionaires list broke two records, total number of listees (1,210), and combine wealth ($4.5 trillion). Now, the top 10 billionaires equate to 9 men with 1 woman. With 7-billion people on the planet, women should account for half of the top 10 billionaires. Why not? Representation is control; man’s ego is underdeveloped and shortsighted to relinquish control. Having the courage to relinquish control is perceived as not being successful. That bruises man’s ego and that is one reason why this civilization remains dysfunctional.

Even during the time of Jesus Christ. People in his on camp fell asleep when situations demand staying awake causes one to fail. Was it not Peter, who Jesus asked to stay awake in the olive grove, before Jesus was arrested? Look at Matthew 26:41 "Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." Note the part ‘the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. We all must drink from the bitter cup. Troubles are sanctified and hearts are satisfied better than troubles are taken away.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Some great thoughts here. Resisting that temptation - whatever it might be related to - can make all the difference.
