Are You a Caretaker?

Devotional – Caretakers
By Kit Pharo – Colorado Rancher

“In the 50th Psalm, verse 10 tells us that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Not only does God own the cattle, he also owns the hills. In verse 12, God says, “. . . for the world is mine, and all that is in it.”

God created and, therefore, owns all that we see around us. As ranchers and cattlemen we are only caretakers, responsible for the well-being of the land and the cattle God has entrusted to us. That is an awesome responsibility, but most of us feel very fortunate to be able to do what we are doing. Millions of people in this country and around the world would jump at an opportunity to trade places with us. God has been good to us and we have much to be thankful for.

Take time to visit with God today. Thank him for the many blessings you have received. Don’t forget that many of the blessings you received came with responsibilities.”

May God’s Will be Done
on Earth as it is in Heaven

The Ten Cannots

William J. H. Boetcker (1873 – 1962) was an American religious leader and influential public speaker.

Born in Hamburg, Germany, he was ordained a Presbyterian minister soon after his arrival in the United States as a young adult. He quickly gained attention as an eloquent motivational speaker, and is often regarded today as the forerunner of such contemporary “success coaches” as Anthony Robbins.

An outspoken political conservative, Rev. Boetcker is perhaps best remembered for his authorship of a pamphlet entitled The Ten Cannots. Originally published in 1916, it is often misattributed to Abraham Lincoln. The error apparently stems from a leaflet printed in 1942 by a conservative political organization called the Committee for Constitutional Government. The leaflet bore the title “Lincoln on Limitations” and contained some genuine Lincoln quotations on one side and the “Ten Cannots” on the other, with the attributions juxtaposed. The mistake of crediting Lincoln for having been the source of “The Ten Cannots” has been repeated many times since, most notably by Ronald Reagan in a speech he gave at the 1992 Republican convention in Houston. There are several minor variants of the pamphlet in circulation, but the most commonly-accepted version appears below:

  • You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
  • You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  • You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
  • You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
  • You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  • You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
  • You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
  • You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
  • You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.
  • And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

“The illusion of freedom in America will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, then they will pull back the curtains and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

“Let those who have a strong, deep, abiding desire towards any special form of service to Christ, take it as presumptive proof that God intended them to do that work and that if in humility, faith and dependence they undertake it, He will prosper them in it.” – F. Guinness


If we truly believe that God is in control of all things, then we must be happy and content with just sowing seeds–trusting that the Lord will send whatever is needed to help those seeds take root and grow. – by Kim Duke


“A Christian is someone who shares the sufferings of God in the world.” And… “When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer


“Moses spent forty years in the king’s palace thinking that he was somebody; then he lived forty years in the wilderness finding out that without God he was a nobody; finally he spent forty more years discovering how a nobody with God can be a somebody.”

~ Dwight L. Moody


Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a mans rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but From the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, & next to the heart to be loved. Some say this quote comes from the Jewish Talmud.


LIVE IN THE VICTORY OF JESUS – “Unless that which is above us – lives within us – we will be overcome by that which is around us” – Adrian Rogers


“Lead Me To The Cross – Everything I once held dear I count it all as lost – Bring me to my knees Lord – I lay me down at the cross – Rid me of self – I need to belong to You – Lead me to the cross – Where your love was poured out for me.” – Newsboys


Can you prove that Jesus Christ is not God? Read~ Flavius Josephus (A.D. 93), the Babylonian Talmud (A.D. 70–200), Pliny the Younger’s letter to the Emperor Trajan (approx.

There is no evidence for evolution, it is unproved and un-provable, science fiction, fairy tales, not supported by known science. It takes more faith/hope/trust in evolution than to believe God is the prime mover or first cause (causality) for the origin of life. – W. Brock


“Every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see.” – Corrie Ten Boom


“What the Church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use – men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men – men of prayer.”

“Great are the wonders of prayer because great is the God who hears and answers prayer.” – E. M. Bounds


God looks at things from an “eternal” point of view. To Him the greatest disaster is for man to die in an unsaved state – totally unprepared for Judgment and eternity. God is even willing for there to be great shaking and turmoil in the earth, if it causes men to seek Him and find eternal salvation. – Andrew Strom

Tithing, Right or Wrong?

Question: “What does the Bible say about Christian tithing? Should a Christian tithe?”

Answer: Many Christians struggle with the issue of tithing. In some churches tithing is over-emphasized. At the same time, many Christians refuse to submit to the biblical exhortations about making offerings to the Lord. Tithing/giving is intended to be a joy and a blessing. Sadly, that is sometimes not the case in the church today.

Tithing is an Old Testament concept. The tithe was a requirement of the law in which all Israelites were to give 10 percent of everything they earned and grew to the Tabernacle/Temple (Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18:26; Deuteronomy 14:24; 2 Chronicles 31:5). In fact, the Old Testament Law required multiple tithes which would have pushed the total to around 23.3 percent, not the 10 percent which is generally considered the tithe amount today. Some understand the Old Testament tithe as a method of taxation to provide for the needs of the priests and Levites in the sacrificial system. The New Testament nowhere commands, or even recommends, that Christians submit to a legalistic tithe system. Paul states that believers should set aside a portion of their income in order to support the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).

The New Testament nowhere designates a percentage of income a person should set aside, but only says it is to be “in keeping with income” (1 Corinthians 16:2). Some in the Christian church have taken the 10 percent figure from the Old Testament tithe and applied it as a “recommended minimum” for Christians in their giving. The New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving. We are to give as we are able. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent; sometimes that may mean giving less. It all depends on the ability of the Christian and the needs of the church. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, all tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Righteousness

by R.C. Sproul

“In declaring the top priorities for Godly living, our Lord said: ‘Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well’ (Matthew 6:33). When Jesus said, ‘Seek first,’ the word first does not describe an initial step in a numerical sequence. Rather, the force of the term is to emphasize priority of importance. Our top priority is to seek God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness.”

“If we want to know what righteousness looks like, we direct our attention to the law of God, as given to us in the Ten Commandments. To be sure, our Savior has redeemed us from the curse of the law. We are no longer pressed down, groaning under its burden. We are not saved by the law, but by grace.” (A Free Gift)

“Yet we are not to throw the law of God into the trash bin as though it has no value to us. The law still serves as a perfect revelation of true righteousness.”
