CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Most of you have probably heard about Advocare, a dietary supplement company.  You may know that this multi-level marketing company was determined by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to be operating as a pyramid scheme. Subsequently, Advocare switched from multi-level marketing to single-level direct selling.  Many highly compensated Advocare employees were released in July 2019.  Julie and I knew a few of those impacted and it could have been a devastating  blow to their well being.  Suddenly $30,000 to $60,000 per month income was gone.  Think about that.  Yes, that’s more money than most of us imagine to ever earn on a regular basis but losing it would certainly be traumatic.

I remember talking to one of those involved and I will always remember her words, “You know there’s a reason the windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror.  You need to focus your attention on what’s ahead of you … not what’s behind you.”

Those words fit very well with a present I bought Julie for her birthday last year.  In black script letters, printed on a white 20″ x 30″ canvas poster are the chorus lyrics from a 1922 hymn by Helen Lemmel.

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

in the light of His glory and grace.”

The Wise Man

People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke and everyone roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.

When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.

The wise man smiled and said:

“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”

Moral of the story:

Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The sweet spot is often utilized in business training sessions.  It is the area of intersections of three circles.  An example of the three circles might be 1.) What We Want, 2.) What They Want, and 3.) What We Can Do.  The sweet spot, where the three circles intersect, is the place of mutual benefit and capability for the parties.  There has been another example floating around lately.  It has to do with COVID 19.  The three circles are People taking COVID 19 seriously, People worried about expansion of authoritarian government policies, and People very concerned about impending economic devastation.  In this case the sweet spot is ME.  That is the place where I am during this time in history.  I don’t want to let any one of the circles to be bigger than the others and I want the sweet spot to be as big as possible.  I think all three issues are huge problems and all three need to be balanced in thought and efforts.  There certainly has been a lot of air time given to the treating this flu seriously as there is a lot of effort going toward opening up the economy.  An area that lagged the attention I believe it needed was the overstretch of government rules and regulations.  It has gained some steam with protesters showing up in various places around our country.

The three circles devoted to COVID 19 would get me on my pulpit in social media and I used to to make my point.  At least I did use it.  Not any more.  Now when I thing about it I think that Jesus is the one I should be concerned about.  I should not worry about government officials exerting too much on me.  I need to let Him exert His authority over my life.  Do I let His light shine on me, in me, and through me to others? That is what Jesus wants.  That needs to be all I want.
