Jesus said if we do not forgive others. Neither will he forgive us. Just a few moments, Pastor Paul Sheppard takes us once again to the life of David in his message don't go messing with the blessing before you get started I want to let you know about a special resource we have for you this month titled finding strength in tough times. I'll give you the details in just a moment, but right now Pastor Paul has joined in the studio pastor we've all had some tough times during this past year, and here's what we know from Scripture. There will be more fair. Tell us about this booklet and why finding strength in tough times is so important to everyone listening. Yes sir I don't know anyone who would argue against the idea that we have endured tough times over the past year and 1/2 that none of us would have predicted. I said it last year but I'll repeat it again when I went into 2020. I was so deep about the idea of going into a new decade man. I couldn't wait for the 20s to get here and I was so excited, but boy three months later we were scratching our heads saying what in the world is going on and the bottom line is tough times have always existed.

We've experienced unique tough times over the past year and 1/2 and there are going to be more in the future of one sort or another. So the bottom line is I believe that we must take the word of God as our lamp to our feet and a light to our pathway. One of the people who helps us do that in the word is a man were all acquainted with name David because boy did he go through some tough times, the very king he was trying to serve was trying to kill him. And so, in the book of first Samuel we read about David being on the run. He's a fugitive from a man is done nothing but love and it's not for days, weeks or months.

He's a fugitive for years and all he's done is try to help this guy talk about tough times. David went through them and he tells us how to get through them just by his very example. So this booklet. I'm really excited to share this month because I want people to understand there is strength we can find in our tough times. If you donate this month.

You don't have the option of unforgiveness genuine because the job done for you. Let me deal with very few and I'm here to tell you. God is serious about us resisting the patient to be judgmental. Think about the times you soon.

Door fell short of the times you put something or someone ahead of God. Remember these times and remember God's response, he showed you mercy and kindness and forgiveness. He loved you unconditionally today on Destin for victory. Pastor Paul chef reminds us that if God is willing to do that for us.

How much more should we do the same for one another. So now here's Pastor Paul. With today's message don't go messing with the blessing about you coming from God and everything that you because God was more simple and not punishment, but I am going to block you from that. Bless you. Wednesday and when you have no business throwing off on other folk when you have no business acting like you are entitled to what you have and other people are not entitled matter because they may never entitled to it. They only got it because God gave him the big three in the battle but got "when you didn't want that judge mental you start thinking that you are entitled to see people get saved and then get stuck up, and before long, the conceited and full of themselves and they think they're all back when all they all if the recipient of grace and mercy. You want to be a mass on 2 feet. You ought to be something that nobody wants to deal with you to be sick and all kinds of sin and the only reason that's not happening because of what I have done in your life you have no feeling that you are entitled, that you are self-made nobody in the kingdom. That kind of foolishness. People in the will say that, but we shouldn't be among them. When I'm a self-made person.

I don't understand the people who don't just pick themselves up and make better decisions when they lie, self-made person. Nobody gave me anything and everything made it myself around me.

I'm back it up. When a lightning bolt hit me so crazy about you self-made somebody get together to bring you in the world by God's design had to change a diaper and feed you are you. What a matter of the two-day PC than the 123 Tiger Susan school and learn how to talk and when people go to college and get real technical school mentor and somebody taught you something got to the place where you can do something good you are.

Be cool by my old bootstrap.and you have no business being judge mental toward other people who are not in the position you're in, and we have to be careful, be careful, it can be dangerous to be blessed. Don't believe me. That is why God told Israel repeatedly in the book of when he was preparing them developing in them the mindset that they would need to carry into the promised land he would say over and over in Deuteronomy.

Now when I bless you.

Don't forget forget you like that the promised land. Be blessed if you're not careful and I love the way David handled the situation. These folks Jack came out the box.

They decided they didn't fight with lazy and uncommitted and all they did, it would just stay here and fill out why we went did all the work. Look at what David said. He said no, my brothers, I love it so well that he's blessed that we like the devil you still call them brothers know my brothers, you must not do that with what the Lord has given us. He said, is he that protect the God that handed over to the forces that came against us and look at what he says in verse 24 he says that of the man who stayed with the supplies will be the same as that of him went down to the battle see what he called a meeting: lazy same thing that we did have a different he's dignified and slammed by their brothers. They been tomorrow lysed by these men and women fought and David now is restoring their dignity.

He said while they stayed with the supplies.

With all that in the battle anyway so they were too exhausted but they did stay with the supplies and we couldn't take in the battle. They did something to help us have to learn the art of finding the positive thing to focus on some of us are in trouble right now in all of our relationship that we keep looking at negative, and whatever you focus on your blowing up what you gotta learn to do is focus on something you can find the one good thing focus on it and thank God for and magnify your problem so that you can maximize your solutions. David said stayed with the supplies they did something to help us and they will share in the plunder.

Gotta watch it, you gotta watch it when you have this tendency to be judgmental toward other example I can think of in Scripture is in Matthew 18. I don't have time to really spend a lot of time there. But don't you know that passage in Matthew 18 beginning in verse 23 what Jesus tells the story of a king who was settling accounts with his servants and he said had a servant who owed him 10,000 talents. Now that were lots of different monetary values called talents in Bible days. One of the problems with properly interpreting the story which type of talent was Jesus referring to and so scholars don't know and when you read various commentaries they have a lot of different takes on it and I've seen estimates as to what 10,000 talent would be that range all over the place, depending on which monetary system you think he was referring to the lowest I've ever seen 10,000 talents in our economy would be $20 million range all the way up to hundreds of millions. I even some scholars based on what they think he had reference to it would take it over $1 billion but for the sake of argument let's just use the loan number if you want to call 20 million low say that the king holding $20 million. When I went and got a line of credit like that.

Where do you go to get $20 and when it comes time to pay. He's not able to pay.

Tell me something I don't know.

And the Bible says he goes to his master and he begs him falls on his knees and says, be patient with me and I will pay back everything he's asking for time. I submit that that is a bogus request when you all $20 million.

You don't need time is not a time situation, somebody 27 days. When you all $20 million only reason you need time to get a passport.

This guy get on a plane somewhere will be right back with more of today's destined for Victor message from Pastor Paul Sheppard.

But first, this quick reminder, you can always access the program on demand to Pastor that's Pastor will also find a host of great resources that are online store. Let's rejoin Pastor Paul.

Now for the rest of today's message don't go messing with the blessing servant just not knowing what else to do, ask for time but the king had compassion took pity on him and letting go. You know who Jesus is referring to the king is and who the indebted person is you all Because of our sin that we could and one day we fell out before God in our hearts, and said, Lord, have mercy on me. I can never be right with you.

I'm a sinner but all God have mercy and instead of by cancel that on the cross for our sin, because the Lord Jesus. The point of the story, the man leaves the palace, having just been forgiven $20 million and all the text says he goes out and for and find somebody who calls him hundred and what that means, literally, is a few dollars he just got Devon $20 million in the below million gold and find a guy that maybe would looking following the streets so body left 20 let's say 20 bucks just got Devon 20 and you know he's usually things out right around the car across the street. He grabbed him and began to grab said you told me you better do you want money and then the guy say is okay, just give me a little time now when I have time to sleep now We Know Your Driveway and You and You and Show You Good Night. With the Change in the Big Bro 11 When It Got Really What Happens When We Are Arrogant and Judgmental and Feel Entitled, He Said, I'm Not Giving You Any More Time You Been Running for Me Long Enough, and Second, You and the Bible Says He Said You Got the Pain but the King, Jesus Goes on to Say, the King Heard about It. I Came to Tell Somebody That the One Who Forgave You for All Your Sins, past, Present and Future Heard about Your Attitude toward Other Folk Heard about Your Unforgiveness and Your Judgmental Attitude toward Other People and the Bible Says Here That When the King You All Done for You. Somebody Responsible and He Said, Reinstating the Tell You You Don't Have the Option of Unforgiveness When Is Much to Be Done for You. You Hold Somebody Did You Show Feeling Something Wrong You Genuine but Not My Job Done for You and Let Me Deal with Very Few and I'm Here to Tell You. God Is Serious about Us Resisting the Temptation to Be Judgmental One More Point. I'll Let You Go. Not Only Must We Realize That We Are Blessed.

Not Only Must We Resist the Temptation to Be Judgmental, but Finally We Must Respond to Being Blessed by Being a Blessing.

David Said Listen, We Are Going to Let These Folks Share in the Plunder and Not Only Did He Make Sure They Shared in the Plunder, but the Bible Says He Went Found Folk Would Been a Blessing to Him in Judah Judah Places Where There during These Years of Being Fugitives. People Would Been Kind to Them. He Found Them Any Suitable Be a Blessing You Sent Them Some of the Plunder and Said Here's a Gift for You Out Of What God Has Blessed Us with.

I'm Here to Tell You When You're Blessed You Actually Been Set up You Been Set up to Be a Blessing Who Are Blessed and Stingy and Cheap Blessed and Tight Fist Because God Meant to You for You to Act like You Can Turn around and Be a Blessing to Somebody Else and I Want to Call Somebody into Liberality like You Have Never Lived in before You Want to Be As Cheap As You Are Self-Centered and Self As You All Not to Be a Tiger Needs a People around You Who Are Less Fortunate about Something, Something about the Goodness of God Be a Blessing to Somebody Sure I Know What It's like to Have Learned Liberality Walking in That We Do Know That Time You Actually Do, since a Leading of the Lord Not Made in a Particular Campaign or to Get to a Particular Set of Me Then God.

There Are More Times Than I Can Count When I Really Didn't Even Have To Play Myself Grabbing My Checkbook to See Somebody Else in the Bowels of Compassion. Let Me Tell You Your Two Blessed Two Blessed Obscene Folks, You Know, Say When I Don't Know I Don't Hear That You Know What Whatever God Puts All My Heart You to Bless What You Need to Be a Tither Because That's the Starting Point. That's an Excellent Starting Point for Saying I'd Knowledge, Lord, That This Came from You, Not from Me There and Then after That, I Realize That Not the 10% below the God You Help Me to Regulate You Lead Me How the Rest of This Is the Be Allocated and God Will Speak to You When He'll Touch Your Heart to Bless Somebody in Me, Don't Touch Your Heart to Be a Blessing to People Who Would Been a Blessing to You. Some of Us Need to Do a Better Job of Blessing Our Parents Took Care You for Years and Now You're Blessed You Need to Turn around and That You Needed You Need Anything Call Me Back to You When You Need It Turn around and Say Look Here on Vacation Going to Get Yourself the Thing That You Thank You How You Help Me Find Folk Who Helped You in Your Life and Turn around and Be a Blessing to Be Stingy Is Why Just As Cute As It Ought to Be Good to Do Stingy That She Would Get in Your Face.
