  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.120 --> 00:00:10.090
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: Thin
  • 00:00:10.090 --> 00:00:11.000
  • people, "Wish I
  • 00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:11.240
  • could put on weight."
  • 00:00:11.240 --> 00:00:14.000
  • Big people, "Wish I could take
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:14.290
  • weight off."
  • 00:00:14.290 --> 00:00:17.080
  • The lust for other things, it is
  • 00:00:17.080 --> 00:00:19.220
  • the seduction of the enemy who
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:23.040
  • always makes other people's
  • 00:00:23.040 --> 00:00:24.160
  • lives look better than yours.
  • 00:00:24.160 --> 00:00:26.230
  • That somehow you are missing out
  • 00:00:26.230 --> 00:00:28.250
  • on something that drives you
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:30.180
  • over the edge to say, "I wish, I
  • 00:00:30.200 --> 00:00:33.200
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:51.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: There is a
  • 00:00:56.200 --> 00:00:57.160
  • stalker chasing you right now,
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:02.100
  • looking for an opportunity to
  • 00:01:02.100 --> 00:01:03.270
  • choke you to death with the
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:06.250
  • cares of this world.
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:11.240
  • The cares of this world.
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.220
  • You were not designed to handle
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:16.110
  • the cares of this world.
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:17.190
  • Why do you think Jesus said,
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:18.250
  • "Cast your cares upon me?"
  • 00:01:18.290 --> 00:01:21.290
  • He built you.
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:26.080
  • He said, "I know you are not
  • 00:01:26.080 --> 00:01:27.290
  • designed for the weight load you
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:29.280
  • are under.
  • 00:01:29.280 --> 00:01:31.150
  • Throw it on me, I can handle it.
  • 00:01:31.150 --> 00:01:33.160
  • I can handle it.
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:36.160
  • I can stand up to it."
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:38.100
  • But no, you're gonna be a
  • 00:01:38.100 --> 00:01:39.090
  • superhero, then you wonder why
  • 00:01:39.170 --> 00:01:42.170
  • you can't sleep.
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:44.270
  • You wonder why your food doesn't
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:45.260
  • digest.
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:46.150
  • You wonder why you don't have no
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:47.050
  • peace.
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:48.040
  • You wonder why you don't have
  • 00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:49.130
  • any joy.
  • 00:01:49.130 --> 00:01:50.080
  • You wonder why you're filled
  • 00:01:50.080 --> 00:01:51.020
  • with anxiety.
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:51.260
  • You wonder why you're having
  • 00:01:51.260 --> 00:01:52.270
  • You're stressed out.
  • 00:01:54.280 --> 00:01:57.090
  • Paul said it this way, he said,
  • 00:01:57.090 --> 00:01:59.050
  • "I was pressed above measure and
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:02:01.140
  • beyond strength."
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:03.190
  • You were not--Jesus didn't come
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:04.270
  • to bring you the bad news, he
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.000
  • came to bring you the good news.
  • 00:02:06.090 --> 00:02:09.090
  • He said I got good news, good
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:11.040
  • tidings, good news to the poor,
  • 00:02:11.040 --> 00:02:13.080
  • good news to the oppressed, good
  • 00:02:13.080 --> 00:02:14.270
  • news, good news, good news.
  • 00:02:14.270 --> 00:02:16.210
  • I'm talking about balance.
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:23.020
  • I'm talking about balance.
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:24.290
  • The cares of this world.
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.260
  • You surround yourself with
  • 00:02:26.260 --> 00:02:28.080
  • people that need you, and you
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:30.250
  • have more people who need you
  • 00:02:30.250 --> 00:02:32.110
  • And you wonder why you are
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:41.290
  • choked, you can't get air.
  • 00:02:43.220 --> 00:02:46.220
  • You're a good person, you've got
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:47.230
  • a good heart, you wanna be there
  • 00:02:47.230 --> 00:02:49.020
  • for everybody, but over a period
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:51.130
  • of time, you get choked by the
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:55.240
  • cares of this world.
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:58.180
  • And let me tell you what they're
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:02:59.080
  • doing.
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:02:59.290
  • They're all dumping their stuff
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:01.060
  • on you, and they go to bed, and
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:04.060
  • You wanna help people to manage
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:14.290
  • their life, you don't wanna
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:17.250
  • carry their life.
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:21.130
  • And if you do, the stalker will
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:25.120
  • choke you.
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:29.100
  • You'll counsel other people's
  • 00:03:29.100 --> 00:03:30.070
  • marriages and lose your own.
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:33.050
  • You'll help them with their kids
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:35.180
  • and can't get yours back.
  • 00:03:35.180 --> 00:03:38.100
  • Come on, talk to me, somebody.
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:41.010
  • And you won't reach your
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.090
  • destination because you were not
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:46.070
  • designed for the weight load
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:48.260
  • that you carry.
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:53.070
  • What do you do?
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:56.210
  • You all missed it, you just
  • 00:03:57.180 --> 00:04:00.200
  • shake it off, you just shake it
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:02.160
  • off.
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.240
  • You learn to say, "Call me
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.130
  • back," "Not right now," "Call me
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:12.280
  • on Tuesday, Monday's my day."
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:19.190
  • "I'm taking me a bath."
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:21.270
  • "Call me later."
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:23.220
  • "I'm doing what I need to do to
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:24.260
  • keep afloat, so that I can keep
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:29.180
  • my altitude, not crash and burn
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:35.290
  • and fall short of my
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:38.230
  • destination."
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:41.070
  • What I'm saying to you in short
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:42.110
  • is are you caring about things
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:44.080
  • that are beyond you?
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:46.210
  • Are you caring about things you
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:49.070
  • cannot fix?
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:51.050
  • Are you loaded down with the
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:52.090
  • weights of this world, because
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:54.240
  • if you are, it is because the
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:56.230
  • stalker is trying to destroy
  • 00:04:56.250 --> 00:04:59.250
  • your destiny.
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:05.020
  • I want you to say this with me
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:06.240
  • If you are spiritual, you felt
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:24.290
  • something just break in that
  • 00:05:26.010 --> 00:05:29.010
  • phrase.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:32.100
  • That felt so good, it felt so
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:34.170
  • liberating to set boundaries, to
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.140
  • say this is enough, this is
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:40.270
  • enough, this is enough, this is
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:42.160
  • enough.
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:43.280
  • It's not that you're not
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.010
  • important, it's not that I won't
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:46.100
  • help, it's not that I won't do,
  • 00:05:46.100 --> 00:05:48.040
  • but I cannot carry more than I
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:50.100
  • can carry.
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:51.170
  • Somebody shout, "Enough!"
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:56.090
  • Whoo, God, if you don't get
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:05:57.280
  • anything else out of what I
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:05:59.100
  • preach today, if you can only
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:01.200
  • remember one word out of what I
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.260
  • said today, that one word is?
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:07.200
  • Good God of mercy.
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:12.150
  • So, when you go home, and
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:14.020
  • everybody's going crazy, and
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:15.140
  • everybody's calling you, and how
  • 00:06:15.140 --> 00:06:17.050
  • come you didn't move me, and
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:18.220
  • when are you gonna change this,
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:20.020
  • and you need to do this, and you
  • 00:06:20.020 --> 00:06:21.140
  • need to do the other, do what
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:22.230
  • you can, and when you've done
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:24.080
  • Say enough, it may be the
  • 00:06:30.090 --> 00:06:33.090
  • difference between you finishing
  • 00:06:33.090 --> 00:06:34.260
  • your course or ending in a body
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:37.200
  • bag and they be talking about
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:40.260
  • what a good person you were.
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:43.280
  • "She was always there for me."
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:46.120
  • That's the problem, I was always
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:47.290
  • there for you, I was never there
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:49.200
  • for me.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:52.130
  • And by the way, I noticed you
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.080
  • weren't there for me either.
  • 00:06:53.110 --> 00:06:56.110
  • Yeah, ain't that something?
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:58.250
  • I was always there for you, that
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:07:00.200
  • says it all.
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:04.020
  • Number two, this is the second
  • 00:07:04.250 --> 00:07:07.250
  • stalker.
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:11.130
  • The deceitfulness of riches, and
  • 00:07:14.230 --> 00:07:17.230
  • I wanna work this thing.
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:20.170
  • The deceitfulness of riches.
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:26.250
  • Now, the way the church likes to
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:27.260
  • teach it is that God hates the
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:30.120
  • the riches.
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:36.170
  • For the Bible said it is God
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:38.280
  • that gives us the power to get
  • 00:07:38.280 --> 00:07:41.170
  • wealth.
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:42.270
  • So, if God hated riches, all
  • 00:07:43.010 --> 00:07:46.010
  • he'd have to do is not give it
  • 00:07:46.010 --> 00:07:47.010
  • to you.
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:49.180
  • riches.
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:54.200
  • Riches are deceitful.
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:57.230
  • Riches are deceitful.
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:08:00.210
  • If you're taking notes, be sure
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:01.170
  • you write that down.
  • 00:08:01.170 --> 00:08:02.100
  • Riches are deceitful.
  • 00:08:02.100 --> 00:08:04.050
  • Now, there's a lot of deceit
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:09.000
  • here and I wanna spend some
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:09.280
  • time, and I really want to work
  • 00:08:09.280 --> 00:08:11.060
  • In Malachi, he says, 3:10,
  • 00:08:13.290 --> 00:08:16.290
  • "Bring ye all the tithes and
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:17.210
  • offerings into the storehouse
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:18.190
  • that there might be meat in my
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:19.130
  • house.
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:20.270
  • And prove me now here with if I
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.270
  • will not open unto you the
  • 00:08:21.270 --> 00:08:23.000
  • windows of heaven."
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:24.290
  • And God says, "I will pour you
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.230
  • out abundance, a blessing that
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:30.180
  • you will not have room
  • 00:08:30.180 --> 00:08:31.040
  • I will give you more blessings
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:35.020
  • than you can handle, okay.
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:37.160
  • "Bring ye all the tithes and
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:38.190
  • offerings in the storehouse that
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:40.000
  • there might be meat in my house,
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:41.020
  • and prove me now here with if I
  • 00:08:41.020 --> 00:08:42.100
  • will not open the windows of
  • 00:08:42.100 --> 00:08:44.010

  • blessing they won't have room

  • 'em the blessing they won't have

  • once they get it, then why would
  • 00:09:00.220 --> 00:09:03.220
  • they continue to tithe?

  • If the object is just to get it,

  • If he poured you out a blessing

  • destination, then the
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:29.200
  • transaction is finished.
  • 00:09:30.050 --> 00:09:33.050
  • The real deceitfulness of riches
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:35.240
  • begins not with people who have
  • 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:38.040
  • it, but with people who don't.
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:44.000
  • Because why would riches seduce
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:47.170
  • who it has?
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:54.030

  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:55.210
  • Think with me now, think with me

  • now.
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:09:57.230
  • Think with me.
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:58.160
  • Why would you seduce what you
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:09:59.270
  • already have?
  • 00:09:59.270 --> 00:10:01.140
  • The seduction is to the person
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:03.240
  • who doesn't have it.
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:06.070
  • The deceitfulness that if you
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.030
  • get me, if you just get me, you
  • 00:10:09.190 --> 00:10:12.190
  • gonna be good.
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:13.290
  • Ooh, let me show you how good I
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:15.080
  • am.
  • 00:10:15.080 --> 00:10:16.250
  • Let me show you how happy you
  • 00:10:16.250 --> 00:10:18.140
  • would be if you could get this
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:20.060
  • car.
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:22.200
  • You get this house, you gonna
  • 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:23.190
  • have joy.
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:25.080
  • Notice how they sell it to you
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:26.060
  • on TV.
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:27.080
  • They don't show you nobody in a
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.180
  • big house looking sad, but I can
  • 00:10:28.270 --> 00:10:31.270
  • take you into all kinds of
  • 00:10:31.270 --> 00:10:33.030
  • neighborhoods and show you
  • 00:10:33.030 --> 00:10:35.010
  • people living in big houses that
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:35.280
  • are miserable, but on the

  • commercial everybody who's got a
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:40.200
  • private pool is playing in it,
  • 00:10:40.200 --> 00:10:43.070
  • and they jumping in it, "Wee,
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:44.210
  • wee, I'm coming out with the
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:46.270

  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:48.110
  • everybody's just smiling.
  • 00:10:48.110 --> 00:10:50.100
  • The deceitfulness of riches
  • 00:10:50.100 --> 00:10:51.220
  • associates joy with stuff.
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:56.140
  • That the reason you don't have
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:57.090
  • joy is because you don't have

  • stuff.
  • 00:10:59.060 --> 00:11:01.080
  • That the reason people don't
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:02.090
  • respect you is because you don't
  • 00:11:02.090 --> 00:11:03.100
  • have stuff.
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:04.250
  • That if you get enough stuff,

  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:14.090
  • in church one day, and I was
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:16.250
  • sitting maybe a couple of rows
  • 00:13:16.250 --> 00:13:19.070
  • from some renowned singers, and
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:23.060
  • we were in a worship service.
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:25.130
  • And the renowned singer was just
  • 00:13:25.130 --> 00:13:27.120
  • singing, you know, just a little
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:28.290
  • bit, and there was this other
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.200
  • girl on the other side, I didn't
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:31.200
  • know who she was, and she was
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:33.070
  • just, "Ahh, ahh, ahh," she was
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:37.040
  • going up and down the scale.
  • 00:13:37.040 --> 00:13:38.250
  • And here this person is who's a
  • 00:13:38.250 --> 00:13:39.210
  • recording artist, I couldn't
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:42.040
  • even hear her singing at all.
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:45.100
  • The wanna-be is hitting 10.000
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:51.160
  • notes, the one who already has
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:54.220
  • been discovered is holding her
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:57.080
  • stuff, and the other girl is
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:14:00.060
  • exploiting her stuff.
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:01.290
  • When you know who you are, and
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:05.090
  • you know what you got, and you
  • 00:14:05.090 --> 00:14:07.170
  • know what God did in your life,
  • 00:14:07.170 --> 00:14:10.080
  • you don't have to try to impress
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.010
  • anybody.
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:20.110
  • Come on, somebody.
  • 00:14:20.110 --> 00:14:22.070
  • Come on, somebody.
  • 00:14:22.070 --> 00:14:24.170
  • The Bible says, "I will make
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:30.290
  • your way prosperous."
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:32.030
  • Joshua chapter 1, "I will make
  • 00:14:32.030 --> 00:14:33.210
  • your way prosperous," and God
  • 00:14:33.210 --> 00:14:35.020
  • said, "I will give you good
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:36.090
  • success."
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:37.040
  • If there is good success, there
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:39.000
  • is also bad success.
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:41.250
  • The deceitfulness of riches is
  • 00:14:41.250 --> 00:14:44.170
  • the enemy trying to trick you
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:48.260
  • into bad success.
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:53.190
  • Can I go a little bit deeper,
  • 00:14:53.190 --> 00:14:54.220
  • just a little bit deeper?
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:56.120
  • I really had to learn this
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:57.150
  • because God began to bless me.
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:01.240
  • And as God began to bless me, I
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:04.140
  • had to change my mentality and I
  • 00:15:05.180 --> 00:15:08.180
  • had to change my expectation.
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:12.030
  • I had to change my mentality
  • 00:15:12.030 --> 00:15:14.150
  • because I had to learn that it
  • 00:15:15.110 --> 00:15:18.110
  • was safe to be generous.
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:20.050
  • It was important to be generous,
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:22.070
  • and while I don't let anybody
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.190
  • use me and tell me who to be
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.290
  • charitable to, let me say that,
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:29.190
  • so don't write me.
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:30.290
  • Yeah, I choose my own charities,
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:35.170
  • but I make sure that I choose
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:36.190
  • them, because it is out of the
  • 00:15:36.250 --> 00:15:39.250
  • charitable heart that God pours
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:43.070
  • in the blessing.
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:44.160
  • Here's the other thing I had to
  • 00:15:44.160 --> 00:15:45.220
  • learn.
  • 00:15:45.220 --> 00:15:46.180
  • When you are more blessed in any
  • 00:15:46.270 --> 00:15:49.270
  • area, I'm not just talking about
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.190

  • political influence, whatever it
  • 00:15:55.140 --> 00:15:56.290
  • is, doesn't make any difference,
  • 00:15:56.290 --> 00:15:58.090
  • any area that you are
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.240
  • exceptional, do not look for

  • reciprocity.
  • 00:16:05.280 --> 00:16:08.280
  • When you are the one that is
  • 00:16:09.140 --> 00:16:12.140
  • blessed, don't expect your
  • 00:16:12.140 --> 00:16:15.050
  • brothers to be fair.
  • 00:16:17.120 --> 00:16:20.120
  • If you do, you're gonna be
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:21.270
  • wounded, because the truth of
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:24.030
  • the matter is, they don't have
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:26.100
  • what you have on the level that
  • 00:16:27.020 --> 00:16:30.020
  • you have it to give back to you,
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:32.230
  • so you can't look for fair like
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:34.100
  • you did when you were both on
  • 00:16:34.100 --> 00:16:36.200
  • the same level.
  • 00:16:36.200 --> 00:16:38.280
  • You--to him whom much is given,
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:41.000
  • much is required.
  • 00:16:41.000 --> 00:16:42.290
  • You have to learn how to expect
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:44.240
  • to be the more giving one and
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:47.030
  • understand that God will make it
  • 00:16:47.030 --> 00:16:49.150
  • Let me paint this for you, and
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.290
  • I'm almost where I need to be.
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:07.160
  • These are the thorns that choke
  • 00:17:07.160 --> 00:17:10.080
  • you, that choke your growth,
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:13.180
  • that stop you from being what
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:14.220
  • God wanted you to be, that abort
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:16.040
  • your destiny.
  • 00:17:16.040 --> 00:17:17.190
  • I've given you two of them, let
  • 00:17:17.190 --> 00:17:19.250
  • me give you the third one.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:21.080
  • The third one is very
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:22.160
  • interesting, because it is quite
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:24.160
  • vague.
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:25.180
  • Jesus said, "And lust for other
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:30.270
  • things," and lust, this is the
  • 00:17:34.130 --> 00:17:37.130
  • third stalker.
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:39.200
  • This is the third thorn.
  • 00:17:39.200 --> 00:17:41.170
  • This is the thing that would
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:43.180
  • choke your destiny, lust for
  • 00:17:46.090 --> 00:17:49.090
  • other things.
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:50.070
  • Now, in our society, when we
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:51.010
  • hear the word lust we always
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:52.010
  • think about sex, but that's not
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:53.010
  • necessarily what he's talking
  • 00:17:53.010 --> 00:17:55.210
  • about here.
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:56.230
  • I wanna get into this.
  • 00:18:03.040 --> 00:18:06.040
  • The third thing that will choke
  • 00:18:06.040 --> 00:18:06.230
  • you is that nothing is ever
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:11.020
  • For you, it is the nebulous,
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:22.180
  • indescript need for other
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:27.270
  • things.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:30.110
  • Whatever is other, it is the
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:33.230
  • spirit of covetousness.
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:38.160
  • I want whatever's not mine,
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:44.180
  • I want it.
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:47.140
  • You remember the Old Testament,
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:48.140
  • how the Bible talks about "Thou
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:49.070
  • shall not covet thy neighbor's
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.090
  • ox, thou shall not covet thy
  • 00:18:50.090 --> 00:18:51.170
  • neighbor's wife, thou shall not
  • 00:18:51.170 --> 00:18:52.260
  • covet, covet, covet, covet,
  • 00:18:52.260 --> 00:18:54.160
  • covet, covet, covet?"
  • 00:18:54.160 --> 00:18:55.200
  • It's other things.
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:57.190
  • Your lust for things you don't
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:02.150
  • have will choke you.
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:07.020
  • Watch this, your lust to be
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:12.070
  • somewhere else, someone else,
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:16.200
  • can be just as simple as your
  • 00:19:16.200 --> 00:19:18.260
  • desire to be married becoming so
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.250
  • big that it chokes your destiny.
  • 00:19:24.150 --> 00:19:27.150
  • Because you can't maximize where
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:29.230
  • you are for lusting.
  • 00:19:29.230 --> 00:19:32.070
  • Let me show it to you.
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:37.280
  • I'm gonna show it to you.
  • 00:19:37.280 --> 00:19:39.150
  • Let me show you why it's the
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:40.170
  • spirit.
  • 00:19:40.170 --> 00:19:41.180
  • The single person, not all of
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:43.070
  • them, but some, lust to be
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:46.140
  • married, while the married
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:49.000
  • people--you can't laugh.
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:55.080
  • Don't laugh, don't laugh,
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:59.170
  • just--see, it isn't married or
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:01.020
  • single, it's just something
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:03.050
  • other than where I am.
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:06.120
  • Thin people, "Wish I could put
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:07.180
  • on weight."
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:09.230
  • Big people, "Wish I could take
  • 00:20:09.230 --> 00:20:10.270
  • weight off."
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:12.280
  • The lust for other things, it is
  • 00:20:12.280 --> 00:20:15.230
  • the seduction of the enemy who
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:18.160
  • always makes other people's
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.210
  • lives look better than yours,
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:22.080
  • that somehow you are missing out
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:24.170
  • on something that drives you
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:26.150
  • over the edge to say, "I wish, I
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:29.010
  • wish, I wish, I wish, I wish."
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:33.090
  • Here's what I'm trying to tell
  • 00:20:33.090 --> 00:20:34.100
  • you.
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:35.090
  • The enemy couldn't take away
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:37.010
  • what God gave you, he just
  • 00:20:37.010 --> 00:20:39.020
  • devalues it in your eyes until
  • 00:20:39.020 --> 00:20:41.080
  • you don't appreciate being you.
  • 00:20:41.160 --> 00:20:44.160
  • It is the lust for other things.
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:47.140
  • It is the lust for other things.
  • 00:20:47.140 --> 00:20:48.290
  • Yeah, you nice looking but your
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:50.070
  • nose looks funny.
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:51.240
  • Oh, you got pretty eyes, but
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:53.020
  • your lips are too thin.
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:54.180
  • It is always something wrong
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:56.120
  • with you.
  • 00:20:56.120 --> 00:20:58.030
  • You've never been happy to be
  • 00:20:58.030 --> 00:20:59.250
  • you.
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:01.050
  • It is the lust for other things.
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:03.280
  • That's why he doesn't define it.
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:06.230
  • It's nebulous, it's infinite.
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:08.060
  • It can change at different
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:10.200
  • stages and ages in your life.
  • 00:21:10.200 --> 00:21:12.100
  • It's just other, anything other
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:16.220
  • than me.
  • 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:20.190
  • Anything other than where I am.
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:24.020
  • The kids, "How old are you?"
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:25.240
  • "I'm 8 1/2."
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:29.060
  • "I'm 9 1/2."
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:30.180
  • "I'm 10 1/2."
  • 00:21:30.180 --> 00:21:32.120
  • They can't wait to get to the
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:33.100
  • next year.
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:35.180
  • Then when you get old, have you
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:37.220
  • noticed you don't hear anybody
  • 00:21:37.220 --> 00:21:38.280
  • say, "I'm 40 1/2."
  • 00:21:38.280 --> 00:21:41.140
  • "I'm 42 1/2."
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:44.140
  • "I'm 80 1/2."
  • 00:21:44.140 --> 00:21:45.270
  • No, no, no, we cut that half
  • 00:21:45.270 --> 00:21:48.230
  • right off.
  • 00:21:48.230 --> 00:21:50.240
  • It is the lust--come on, talk to
  • 00:21:50.240 --> 00:21:53.070
  • me, somebody.
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:54.090
  • It is the lust.
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:21:59.280
  • Let me show you how dangerous
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:01.060
  • this is.
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.110
  • You will never be happy, never
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:06.060
  • be happy, because whatever you
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:08.220
  • get, it will always be the
  • 00:22:08.220 --> 00:22:10.160
  • other.
  • 00:22:10.160 --> 00:22:12.160
  • Whoever you marry, you'll always
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:13.210
  • want the other.
  • 00:22:13.210 --> 00:22:15.080
  • I'd seen people, "I wish I had a
  • 00:22:15.080 --> 00:22:17.250
  • marriage like yours."
  • 00:22:17.250 --> 00:22:20.080
  • How you know what my marriage
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:21.130
  • is?
  • 00:22:21.190 --> 00:22:24.190
  • "If I could just find a wife
  • 00:22:24.190 --> 00:22:26.030
  • like First Lady."
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:27.180
  • You don't even know First Lady.
  • 00:22:28.220 --> 00:22:31.220
  • You know what is killing you?
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:33.230
  • Other things, other things,
  • 00:22:33.230 --> 00:22:36.190
  • other things.
  • 00:22:36.190 --> 00:22:37.200
  • And the Bible said, "Do not
  • 00:22:37.200 --> 00:22:38.280
  • covet other things."
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:41.060
  • Stop wanting what other people
  • 00:22:41.060 --> 00:22:42.110
  • got.
  • 00:22:42.110 --> 00:22:43.110
  • You don't know what's going on
  • 00:22:43.110 --> 00:22:44.100
  • it that house.
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:45.170
  • You don't know what's going on
  • 00:22:45.170 --> 00:22:46.170
  • in their life.
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:47.160
  • Shut your mouth and thank God
  • 00:22:47.160 --> 00:22:49.290
  • Somebody holler, "Enough!"
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:23:00.230
  • We're getting ready to drive
  • 00:23:00.230 --> 00:23:01.190
  • that stalker right out of your
  • 00:23:01.190 --> 00:23:03.000
  • life.
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:04.050
  • We're getting ready to drive him
  • 00:23:04.050 --> 00:23:05.120
  • right out of your spirit and out
  • 00:23:05.120 --> 00:23:06.190
  • of your mind.
  • 00:23:06.190 --> 00:23:07.170
  • God wants you to appreciate what
  • 00:23:07.170 --> 00:23:09.090
  • he gave you, like he gave you,
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:12.030
  • how he made you, where he placed
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:15.040
  • you, what he put inside of you.
  • 00:23:15.170 --> 00:23:18.170
  • God wants you to say, "Lord, I
  • 00:23:18.170 --> 00:23:20.060
  • thank you for how you made me,
  • 00:23:20.170 --> 00:23:23.170
  • for where I am, for my age, for
  • 00:23:23.170 --> 00:23:26.130
  • my stage, for my house, for my
  • 00:23:27.070 --> 00:23:30.070
  • apartment, for these shoes, for
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:32.220
  • my kids, for my husband.
  • 00:23:33.120 --> 00:23:36.120
  • Lord, I thank you for what you
  • 00:23:36.290 --> 00:23:39.290
  • gave."
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:41.070
  • This is the day that the
  • 00:23:41.070 --> 00:23:43.150
  • Lord--somebody help me praise
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:48.090
  • Shout, "Enough!"
  • 00:23:57.130 --> 00:24:00.150
  • When Jesus teaches on this, when
  • 00:24:00.150 --> 00:24:03.140
  • Jesus teaches this, he calls
  • 00:24:03.140 --> 00:24:06.020
  • them thorns that he said, "I
  • 00:24:10.210 --> 00:24:13.210
  • will sow good seed in thorny
  • 00:24:15.130 --> 00:24:18.130
  • places."
  • 00:24:18.240 --> 00:24:21.240
  • Be careful that you don't let
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:24.170
  • life's thorns choke you.
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:34.120
  • I'm gonna tell you something
  • 00:24:34.120 --> 00:24:35.150
  • about what I preached today.
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:39.060
  • It is really about balance.
  • 00:24:43.090 --> 00:24:46.090
  • It's really about temperance.
  • 00:24:46.090 --> 00:24:49.060
  • It's really about perspective.
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:51.130
  • And it's really hard, because
  • 00:24:53.010 --> 00:24:56.010
  • I've seen some days that I had
  • 00:24:56.010 --> 00:24:58.170
  • the blessing, and I've seen some
  • 00:24:58.170 --> 00:25:01.150
  • days that the blessing had me.
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:06.170
  • My sister and I were joking
  • 00:25:06.170 --> 00:25:08.290
  • around, and I got more house now
  • 00:25:09.260 --> 00:25:12.260
  • that the kids are gone than I
