When Mammon Masters You

Post  fennywest on Fri 02 Apr 2010, 10:24 pm



When Mammon Masters You
He will also dazzle and muzzle you
Send you to bed crying, sighing
Wake you up regretting, blues singing

He will make you do crazy things
Whilst it gradually flies with wings
Digging your grave with the shovel you gave
Before burying all that you have saved.

Choose whom you will serve today
As for me and my household we choose the Way
His mastery always brings joy unspeakable
And many incredible miracles inexplicable


He withholds no good thing from the upright
That which looks bad He will make good and right
He brings water out of rocks, rivers in deserts

That is why He will continue to reign in my heart







[b]Matthew 6:23-25 (New King James Version)



23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
You Cannot Serve God and Riches


24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Do Not Worry


25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?




When a Win Wounds



A former baker who won £9 million on the Lottery has died five years after scooping the jackpot, it was revealed. Related photos / Keith Gough, 58, won the jackpot with his wife Louise in June 2005 but spent much of his winnings on racehorses, fast cars and an executive box at Aston Villa.
He died on Saturday at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford, Shropshire. It is believed he suffered a heart attack.
John Homer, who owns a newsagents in nearby Broseley, said he still remembered when "Goughie" bought his winning ticket.
Mr Homer, 65, said: "It was a Wednesday and a roll-over from the previous Saturday. It all went down hill from there. He and his wife split. He did have a drink problem and it got progressively worse. He was a nice chap and we got on well.
"It's very sad because it should have made him a very happy man but he didn't get the best out of it. He had a box down at Villa Park and he used to have a go at me because I'm a Wolves fan.
"You never expected any sorrow or problems but he must have had some although he never spoke about them, not to me anyway."
In 2007, Mr Gough split from his wife of 25 years and began drinking heavily. He reportedly checked into the Priory rehabilitation clinic in Birmingham for treatment.
At the time the couple scooped the jackpot, Mrs Gough, a secretary, said her husband had a dream their numbers would come up. She said: "A few nights ago Keith told me he had dreamt we had won the lottery. I dismissed it and told him that 'everyone has those kind of dreams' and to forget about it. I never believed it would come true."
But the win quickly ruined Mr Gough's life. Last year he told the News of the World: "My life was brilliant. But the lottery has ruined everything.What's the point of having money when it sends you to bed crying? Now when I see someone going in to a newsagent I advise them not to buy a lottery ticket."
