Confessions of a Jesus Freak
Scott deBeaubien (Scotty) is married to Cheryl. We are very much in love, and we love Jesus. He is the center of our lives. We believe that a life lived with Him at the center is a life that’s on the right path. Becoming more like Jesus is a daily goal, so it’s more of a journey than a destination. We believe in building relationships with others so that together we can have an impact on our world.
By definition my belief makes me a Conservative, but I also think of myself as a “Free Thinker.” I have lots of ideas about this world, the evil, the greed and the corruption have made it so that most of us must struggle through our daily lives with barely a chance to look up or look away from our daily difficulties. Therefore, we must be intentional about seeing this World for what it is, and for believing that Jesus is really all we need, and that the “things” in this world are just things, not to be desired or sought after.
At the same time, we should cherish each other. Remember one of Kimo’s rules, “The best things in life are not things.” That’s a pretty good philosophy if you ask me. So, we need each other, we need to love each other, help each other and try to lift each other up, rather than step all over each other trying to claw our way to some mythical “top” of the heap. The only thing that’s up there at the top of the supposed heap is a bunch of corruption and greed and politics that would probably make most of us puke.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not wrong to own a bunch of stuff or to be wealthy, it’s just wrong to put that in front of everything else – that’s all. So, be happy with what you have, “Seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
God Bless you!
