Good Things vs. God’s Way

Morning Thought: It’s good things that will often cause you to miss God. It was the goodness of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that led Eve astray. Isn’t it a good thing to know the difference between good and evil? Isn’t it good to be wise? So what was wrong with Adam and Eve’s decision? The issue was the way—the way they gained wisdom was against God’s Word. It was their own way (through the serpent’s enticement) rather than God’s way. God’s way is through intimacy with him. Today, don’t be led astray by the appearance of what is good, desirable and pleasurable. Instead, know God and what he wants. “But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” ‭‭(2 Corinthians‬ ‭11:3‬, ‭NASB‬).

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
