Bible Studies By Sheri Boulet / a couple of years ago Share Tweet Pin Share Well, I opened my email this morning, and to no surprise at all, the message said: “Congratulations…you have won 753,437 GBP”. I once again have won some large sum of money from a foreign country I have never heard of. IF all these email were legitimate, I would be richer than Bill Gates by now. *You mean, they’re not legitimate?????* Uh, no. And if YOU have responded, you might want to run a credit report. Email is a crazy thing. Every time I open mine there is something new to immediately delete without opening. How do these people find out about me?? I know that every time you visit a page there is the possibility of trouble. This is why I am so careful about where I go and what I visit. Well, this is one of many reasons that I am. We were having a special service at the church here in Douglas. My husband and daughter were out one Saturday morning sticking up fliers. One of the places they put one was in the door of one of the liquor stores. Denise said when they got it up she bolted for the car. My husband asked her why she was in such a hurry. She said “I don’t want anybody to ride by and see me coming out of a liquor store!” He said, “Well, you know what you were doing there and God knows what you were doing there so it shouldn’t matter what anyone else thinks.” She said, “Daddy, the Word says abstain from the very APPEARANCE of evil!!!” She knows she has to be careful where she goes because people are watching her, just like these crazy computer programs that watch where we go and what we look at. I don’t mind so much deleting the emails from diet sites or home improvement sites and such as that, but, I don’t even want to think about some of the junk I could get if I looked at some of the JUNK out there. It would be so nice in life to really get emails and be able to deposit large sums of money in your accounts even though you have done nothing to earn them. But life doesn’t work that way. And even though my own bank accounts are not fat, I am rich beyond measure. Remember, I am an heir of the King of Kings!! Psalm 23 is probably the most well know of all of the Psalms. But have you ever REALLY read it? “The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” So, thanks anyways Sir Charles from the island of Timpokwa, but as you can see I am WELL taken care of.
