But some of us give Him only the leftovers of our money and of our talents and never give our time fully to the Lord Jesus Christ who gave us all. They may look gnarly and austere, but they produced wonderful spiritual fruit. A Glimpse into Glory. Our responsibility is to yield to His wisdom and allow Him to do the work without any advice from ilfe.

He does everything that he knows how to do but just cannot make it go. Year after year the ledger shows red, and he is not making a profit. He borrows what he can, has a little spirit and a little hope, but that spirit and hope die and he goes broke.
Finally, he sells out, hopelessly in debt, and is left a failure in the business world. A woman is educated to be a teacher but just cannot get along with the other teachers. Something in her constitution or temperament will not allow her to get along with children or young people. So after being shuttled from one school to another, she finally gives up, goes somewhere and takes a job running a stapling machine.
She just cannot teach and is a failure in the education world. I have known ministers who thought they were called to preach. They prayed and studied and learned Greek and Hebrew, but somehow they just could not make the public want to listen to them. They were failures in the congregational world.
It is possible to be a Christian and yet be a failure. This is the same as Israel in the desert, wandering around. They were not where God meant them to be. They compromised. They were halfway between where they used to be and where they ought to be. They live and die spiritual failures. I am glad God is good and kind. The individual has simply been a failure all of his life.
He is ready for death and ready for heaven. I wonder if that is what Paul, the man of God, meant when he said: [No] other foundation can [any] man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. We ought to be the kind of Christian that cannot only save our souls but also save our lives.
When Lot left Sodom, he had nothing but the garments on his back. Thank God, he got out. But how much better it would have been if he had said farewell at the gate and had camels loaded with his goods. He could have gone out with his head up, chin out, saying good riddance to old Sodom. How much better he could have marched away from there with his family.
Thank God, you are going to make it. But do you want to make it in the way you have been acting lately? Wandering, roaming aimlessly? It is the will of God that you should enter the holy of holies, live under the shadow of the mercy seat, and go out from there and always come back to be renewed and recharged and re-fed.
It is the will of God that you live by the mercy seat, living a separated, clean, holy, sacrificial life—a life of continual spiritual difference.
