My little children, let us not love in wore, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 1 JOHN 3:18
THREE OLD MEN:
A WOMAN ENCOUNTERS THREE OLD MEN
A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize these men, yet she said to them, I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house at home?" they asked. The woman answered, "No! He is at work right now." "Then we cannot come in," they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go tell them that I am home now and invite them in."
The woman went out and invited the men in. "We never go into a house together," they replied. "Why is that?" asked the woman.
One of the old men explained: "His name is WEALTH" he said, pointing to one of his friends. Pointing to another he said, "His Name is SUCCESS and I am LOVE." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."
A DECISION TO BE MADE
The woman went in and told her husband what the man had said. Her husband was overjoyed, "How nice" he said, "Since that is the case, let us invite WEALTH, let him come in and fill our home with WEALTH!"
His wife disagreed, "My dear, why don't we invite SUCCESS?"
Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the small house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite LOVE in. He will fill our home with LOVE!"
"Let us listen to our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite LOVE to be our guest!"
The woman went out and asked the three old men, "Which of you is LOVE? Please come in and be our guest." LOVE got up and started walking towards the house, the other two also got up and followed LOVE.
Surprised, the lady asked WEALTH and SUCCESS: "I only invited LOVE, why are you coming in?" The old men replied together: "If you had invited WEALTH or SUCCESS the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited LOVE, wherever he goes, we go with him.
WHEREVER LOVE IS
Wherever there is LOVE there is also WEALTH and SUCCESS!
FOR YOU MY FRIENDS
"Father, I ask you to bless my friends who are reading this right now. Lord, show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence in Your ability to work through them.
Where there is exhaustion, I ask You to give them patience, strength and understanding a they learn submission to Your leading. Where there is Spiritual Stagnation, I ask You to renew them by revealing Your nearness and, by drawing them into greater intimacy with You.
Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and release to them your courage. Where there is sin that is blocking them, reveal it, and break its hold over my friends lives.
Bless their finances, give them a greater vision, and raise up leaders, and friends to support, and encourage them. Give each of them discernment to recognize the demonic forces around them, and reveal to them the power they have in You to defeat it.
I ask You to do these things in Jesus' name! In Christian love, Your friend in Jesus passing this on to anyone you consider a friend , as I have done here, will bless you both. Passing this on to one not considered a friend is something I know Christ would do!
