A roofing company that does business in Mt Airy, Chestnut Hill and other areas has taken the down payment of a customer and didn't do the work. To the best of my knowledge, any smart person would say that is deplorable and I agree.
However, what would make a company do that to a customer? The love of money is the reason. 1 Tim 6.10 teaches the love for money will lead men to do things that are wrong. When a lover of money, thinks that he can get free money and not work for it; they will do it. The reason they do, is they are without ethics. When a person is like that they have no regard for what is right, they think only of themselves and set no example of their word being their bond.
We are sorry to see the customer and his family put though all this drama by the roofing company; but small claims court is available and hopefully they can get justice. 1 Peter 2.13-15.
On one last note; we must remember that God has seen all things and He will reward the roofing company according to their works. Eccl 3.17
It makes no different who a person is. Black, White, Asian, Jew, Greek, Iranian, North Korean, etc. The Lord will extend mercy to any who seek to understand what they must do to be saved. Rom 10.8-17. Acts 16.25-33. Acts 2.36-42. Gal 3.26-29. Col 3.11. Acts 10.34-36. The powerful message revealed in the scriptures I have provided for your reading with show you every point stated. So, what should one be waiting for? Nothing! No person should be waiting for anything. All should take strong interest in starting a relationship with God. And if you need some reason to do so; think death! Some people talk so easy about death because they have no idea what they are stepping into. Death is eternality and as a person dies, so will they be when they stand before God to be judged. Heb 9:27. John 8.21-24. Luke 16.25. Matt 25.31-46.
Man needs to get his soul right and that will require investing time with a teacher of the gospel. 1 Cor 1.20-24. Acts 8.26-39. 1 Cor 3.1-9. John 6.45. Acts 16.13-15. Acts 28.23-31
The hurricanes going through the tropics and causing all that damage is evidence that nothing stays nice forever. Storms are a common thing for that part of the world and with the nice weather, it is the price those people have to pay. But now is also a good time for those with means to seek ways to help the people of that area.
If you know an organization or people who can be trusted to deliver aid; now is the time to share with them in this need. The recovery will be long and hard for the Bahamas; but people working together can get it done. Gal 6:10
All of mankind will have problems. Job 14.1-2. But, the difference between the unbeliever and the believer, is the peace that the child of God has because of the guidance and help of the Lord though the time of trouble. Proverbs 1.33 The unbeliever has no help from the Lord; he is all out there on his on and will suffer the consequences of being beaten by something which is greater than himself. Proverbs 1.24-32.
God on the other hand is bigger than any problem one may face and by being a child of God; the peace which passes all understanding will make it easier to sleep at night. Proverbs 2.10-11. Proverbs 3.21-24.
Because most don?t submit themselves to the will of God; they will miss out on all the things the Lord would have done for them. Luke 13.34-35.
Don?t let that happen to you. Get to know the Lord today. Hebrews 3.15.
Trying to change people is very hard. The old saying; "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink." This is true when it concerns the teaching of the gospel of Christ. The church can introduce people to the word of God; but have no power about getting men to embrace it.
Noah preached for many years while he was also preparing the ark. The world in which Noah lived, was full of brick head people and he didn't gain one convert. The only people saved from the flood were the eight people who lived in his house. Everyone thought Noah was crazy so they didn't listen to him. 2 Peter 2.5. 1 Peter 3.20 Gen 7.5-11
