The RICHEST Place on Earth — and How You Can Find It!

“Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified…. He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.” – The words of an angel, to a group of scared & confused Israelite women, almost 2000 years ago. (Matthew 28:5-7)

Many years ago, I attended a powerful, city-wide conference… that featured a magnificent speaker from the Bahamas, named Myles Munroe.

Here’s the question the speaker asked everybody that day:

Can you tell me what is the Wealthiest place on this earth?

There are probably like 10,000 answers you could give… and since I feel nice today (LOL), I’ll go ahead and tell you what some of the WRONG answers are.

The wealthiest place is NOT in the diamond fields of South Africa. It is NOT in the vast, oil fields of Kuwait. Nor is it in the royal wealth of the the banks of London… or in the stock markets of New York City.

The WEALTHIEST and RICHEST places on this earth lie in the graveyards and cemeteries all across this globe.

In these graveyards, lie the remains of people who NEVER attained their potential in life. They died without writing best-selling books that were in the fabric of their dreams.

They died without finding the cures to cancer, aids, and other diseases that for ages have plagued mankind.

In these graves are people who died without writing beautiful songs and ballads, that would’ve touched our hearts.

They died without starting multi-million dollar corporations that could have impacted the economy… and they died without starting organizations or ministries that would have changed the world.

In many cases, some of the things that these men and women could’ve have accomplished for mankind and this world is worth more than all the money, the gold, and the silver in this world… and sadly, a great WEALTH of ideas will never become manifest, because the owners of this GREAT wealth of knowledge will die before they can act upon it.

This is where YOU come in… and can play YOUR part in making sure that the richest place on earth, is NO longer our graveyards.

As many of you know, that this is Easter week… the week that those of us who are Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Resurrection simply means this: “Rising from the dead & Returning to Life”.

Many of us have dreams of becoming great men and woman… we have dreams of writing best-selling novels… starting successful businesses… running for political office…. the list is endless, but many of us NEVER accomplish that thing that we DREAM of doing.

Many times, it is because of fear and doubt… or ignorance… or a lack of resources on our part… the lies that people have told us… whatever the case is, sometimes the dreams and visions we have, are DEAD and buried within us… and we leave them in that grave within our hearts and minds… and when we die (which we all will), our dreams will die to… and NEVER have a chance to come alive.

This is a week that we celebrate LIFE, and it’s victory over death! Why not make it a week to also re-establish yourself… and where you’re at right now in life?

Now is the time for you to RESURRECT those dead dreams, passions, and ambitions of yours… and bring them back to life! It doesn’t matter what people say… or the lack of your resources… all that matters is God, and you can be assured He has all the resources and wisdom in the universe.

You were born in this time and in this age to make an impact and a difference in this world! You are NOT an accident or mistake… because what God creates, he instills purpose and potential in. This week and go after your dreams this week with a new fire and a new sense of urgency… and watch God use you!

The POWER of Life and Death is in YOUR Tongue!

“The POWER of life & death is in YOUR tongue.. and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)

People talk crazy… people say foolish things… people curse others… and people say horrible things! This isn’t anything new… and as long as God has given us the GIFT (at least for most people!) of speaking, there will always be people out there who say inappropriate things that they shouldn’t be saying!

I guess some people didn’t have their mouths washed out with soap enough when they were younger… did they??

While in most cases you can’t control the words that come out of other’s mouths… you CAN control the words that come out of YOUR mouth.

Many people will use their tongues to speak negative things, such as “The economy is bad”… or “You’ll be just like your father when you grow up”… or “I’m not smart enough”… and worse than that, many times we will talk down on others… and tear them apart with our tongues. Many times, the things which we speak DO become reality… so in essence, when we speak badly or negatively… in most cases bad and negative things happen!

On the other hand, instead of speaking negatively, and down upon yourself and others, and instead of crying, “The sky is falling!”… let me show you another way! An even better way to use that tongue God gave you!

Speak POSITIVELY about yourself. Speak HOPE into a negative situation. Speak GOOD about others.

Simple as that. In doing this, you are speaking the undisputable POWER of God into yourself, others around you, and into your situation.

I am convinced that is almost nothing on this earth, that can stop a POSITIVE man or woman who is armed with a fully-loaded tongue… and knows how to use it.

Be blessed today… and aim to speak 5 good things about yourself… and 5 good things about others today!
