I learned something new today

Sharing what God reveals

I was asking the Lord how do we know what to share and what not to share and the Lord revealed clearly through these verses

Psalms 40:3 He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD. 6 You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings. Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand you don't require burnt offerings or sin offerings. 8 I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart. 9 I have told all your people about your justice. I have not been afraid to speak out, as you, O LORD, well know. 10 I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart; I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness. 
- Its not about doing great acts of sacrifice, but to obey Him, thats more important.  We should not be afraid to speak out about His justice and faithfulness and saving power. You should declare in the great assembly (in front of everyone) His unfailing love and faithfulness. Speak out what He reveals  to us so that the church is edified and blessed.

Proverbs 10:11, 12  
The words of the godly are a life-giving fountain; the words of the wicked conceal violent intentions. Hatred stirs up quarrels, but love makes up for all offenses.
- These are the standards by which we can measure if it can be shared or not. - It should give life and encouragement to the body of Christ.
- It should not be with violent or wrong intentions
- It should not stir up quarrels or hatred.
We should speak boldly in love. If there are any mistakes, love will cover all offenses caused. 

Hebrews 5:14
But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
- With exercise, the mistakes will disappear and we will be able to walk in the authentic because we would be able to discern correctly.

What is success?

Came across an article about "extrinsic vs. intrinsic motivation". The link is given below. I am just noting down somethings I liked from the article.

"What is success?" Someone who spent his life working 80 hour weeks, living in hotels, and fighting his way up the corporate ladder to become VP of toilet paper marketing would probably consider himself more successful than a sandwich shop owner who spends his nights and weekends playing with his kids and working on hobby projects, but maybe the sandwich shop owner would be happier and healthier. Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide what success means to them, but I think it's important that everyone be mindful of the decision they are making. 

Something else I read from a forward on the same lines: (in brief)
An MBA guy met a fisherman and suggested him to increase his revenue, buy more boats, employ people so that he can make enough money in 10-20 years and then finally spend time with his family, children and do what he loves to do. The fisherman replied that he is already doing all the things the MBA guy mentioned and he doesn't have to wait 10-20 years for getting there. 

Also, some note from the article about entrepreneurs
It's often said that people become entrepreneurs because they can't handle a regular job. Perhaps these people are simply too "defective" to fit into any mold, or maybe they lack the extrinsic motivation necessary to care about bosses, performance reviews, and other things which are so important for success in the corporate environment. However, what they do have is the creativity and natural sense of direction necessary to run their own business. I doubt that this is a coincidence.

Funny code comments

I read this on a website and just took some that appeared really funny to me. 
* For the brave souls who get this far: You are the chosen ones,
* the valiant knights of programming who toil away, without rest,
* fixing our most awful code. To you, true saviors, kings of men,
* I say this: never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down,
* never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry,
* never gonna say goodbye. Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
