a little trick

someone is always trying to trick you.

for instance... mortgage payments.

i know ... just bear with me all you who don't have jobs yet.
all you who don't understand the significance of 26 pay periods in one year.

every month i make a house payment... for X dollars.

if i paid that every two weeks it would be 1/2 X dollars... right?

well, some say that's a good thing cause you can chisel down on your interest and just hit the principle.

well... what they don't tell you most of the time is 52 weeks in a year. half that is 26 payments. but there's 12 months... you get paid on average twice a month... that's 24 payments...
but some months are longer than others... so two weeks are extra.

what the lending companies do is save those extra 2 payments and make them at the end of the years as an extra payment for you. its a trick... you could do that yourself... instead of paying their little fees which aren't little at all.

they want your money.

satan wants your life.
your thoughts.
your time.
your attention.
He wants the reigns to your life.

And you better believe that he's better than the mortgage people. a lot better.

Eph. 6:12 says:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

have you ever been amazed at a card or magic trick?
what happens after you figure it out and you see it again?

not so impressive is it?
we have to see past the trick and see it for what it truly is.

What's the biggest trick Christians have to deal with today???
