Come Close to God!

Women seem to love spending time at Home Good as if it were their 'church'. We think that as long as we are not 'hurting anyone' then we are not hurting God. Sorry to say but relishing in time spent at Home Goods is hurting God. It is sad that we can so easily get caught up in the many people, including men. By indulging in things of this world we do hurt God, we hurt the potential for the Holy Spirit to live and dwell in us. We create conflict in us as we become divided between God and the world.

In James, we are reminded of the conflict in the world and though we may not think we are part of it or have anything to do with it, we are mistaken. Simple by our desires to get things and get them 'cheap' causes disparity in others. Ask "What is causing quarrels and fights among you? Don't they come from the evil desires at war within you" You want what you don't' have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have but you can't get it so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet, you don't' have what you want because you don't ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don't get it because your motives are all wrong, you want only what will give you pleasure.... Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands you sinners; purify your hearts for your loyalty is divided between God and the world" ~ James: 1-7.

God our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ is our everything!
