Government Schools are Lap Dog Training Centers

dogobedience.jpgGovernment schools train the students how to be good soldiers and servants. They are taught to be obedient and to do what they are told. The students are taught that it is more important to follow directions than it is to think critically. Anyone with the audacity to think for themselves is considered to be a trouble maker.

The government experts know what is best and the student and teach them to trust the judgement of their leaders while questioning the wisdom of their parents.The children are taught that groups have rights and that individuals have privileges and must give up their rights for the greater good of the greater number. The government schools teach our children that the government is the source of our rights the self evident truths spoken of in the Declaration of Independence are no longer valid.

The children are taught that the government will take care of us and that we are not responsible for our own success of failure. The government schools teach that when an individual takes things that don’t belong to him, he has committed a crime, but when the government takes from the property belonging to Peter and gives it to Paul they call it charity.
When citizens steal they go to jail, but when Congressmen steal they get re-elected.

But Master…

But Master…

February 25

Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets” (Luke 5:5).

Have you ever argued with God? One of the first sermons Jesus ever gave was from a boat. It was Simon Peter‘s boat. Jesus used a businessman’s business to preach the Gospel. However, Peter had to first make his business available to the Master. When he did, something wonderful happened to his business.

You see, Peter’s fishing business was in a slump. They had just fished all night and caught nothing. Nevertheless, Peter made his boat available to Jesus to use as He wished. Jesus used it to preach to the multitudes. After Jesus used Peter’s boat for His purposes Jesus did something interesting for Peter. He blessed his business. However, Peter almost missed the blessing because he began to argue with Jesus. Peter was looking at the market conditions instead of the instruction of Jesus. Something inside of him made him reconsider Jesus’ instruction. Jesus rewarded his obedience. “When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink?” (Luke 5:6-7).

We see a number of Kingdom principles we can apply in our work lives in this story. 1) We must be willing to let God use our work life for His purposes. 2) We must not look at circumstances and argue with Jesus when His instruction seems to contradict what we have seen or experienced already. 3) We must obey the Lord.

When we obey the Lord we might just see Jesus use us for His glory and bless our obedienc
