Quality??

July 29, 2015 — Leave a comment

Our family owns a screen printing business.  We print designs and logos on T-shirts, hats, etc.

The other day I stopped by the shop and happened to have a shirt on that had a really cute picture and bible verse on it that I had purchased at another store.    

Wade, my son, who is the graphic designer and does a lot of printing for Levrets Ink asks…Mom, where did you get that shirt?

I told him and he proceeds to come over; take the front of my shirt stretching it in every direction possible.

WADE…what ARE you doing?!  He smiled and said…  I’m checking the quality of the print!

 

What quality of message am I sending in my attitude, speech, expressions and motives?

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example to the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, in purity.”(1 Timothy 4:12,NIV)

Stretching and checking my quality! ~Deb  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quality Stone?

1 Kings 5:16-17, tells us of the building of the temples foundation.  The stones were huge and perfectly rectangle in shape.  Scripture says the stones were moved to the temple in a quiet manner out of respect for the Holy site.  The foundation was constructed of “quality stone.”

If your foundation isn’t strong everything else will fall beneath it.  “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (ICorinthians 3:11, NIV) 

The need for a quality foundation is a lesson we must all take to heart.  What types of materials are we using?  Are we rebelling against God which causes a weak foundation or are we building on the integrity and stability of Christ Jesus?  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain come down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it do not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24-25, NIV) 

Hearing, knowing and doing…If we aren’t doing then we aren’t building on the right foundation.  “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.  The rain came down, the streams rose and the winds blew and beat against the house, and it fell with a great crash.” (Matthew 7:26-2,NIV)

Listen to the voice of authority, Christ Jesus and build that firm foundation!  Deb~

thFacebook is immensely poplar.  Many focus on how many friends they can accumulate.   I don’t know that this is a wise move and many share way too much information.

I have two ladies that will be my Best Friend Forever.  Ladies that have been with me through all kinds of situations and have given me wise council.  When I say wise council, it is what I need to hear not necessarily what I want to hear.  The speak truth, no sugar coating for these two.    th (1)

They’ve also held my hand through some of my darkest times.  I love these ladies with every fiber of my being.
