    1. Crissy, I’m so glad to hear from you! Thank you and I’m grateful to GOD for His inspiration and discovery of these timely pictures! There are many things/concepts that will rival if not “choke” out our faith and three of these are money, power, and fame (these are shown accordingly left to right in the gallery). These pleasures and gratifications, left unchecked, somehow would make us focus on them, on temporal earthly satisfaction than the everlasting one i.e. worshipping the Triune GOD in Heaven and away from the tormenting hell. Only GOD can really renew our hearts and we too must fight against such desires, regularly asking the HOLY SPIRIT for guidance. Blessings to you and your family!

      1. So very true. The same temptation as it was from the beginning although today is more than just a piece of fruit. So grateful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
        Have a blessed evening Clark.

  1. Ferrari, good visual! I don’t know what the banquet hall is, but Versailles (and the Hall of Mirrors) is still one of the most incredible places I have ever been! God saved me in wanting Him more than this world. Hallelujah! Love and blessings to you and your family!!

    1. Ferrari Testarossa was my favorite matchbox like car back then due to Hot Rod. Yes, Mandy, it portrays power just like any other seat of power (no pun intended) may it be in the governance field or corporate world. Left unchecked, when so drunk from money, power and even fame, we may be sidetrack by its desires and pleasures. Worst of all, we then are ignoring Biblical teachings and our Lord GOD and Savior JESUS CHRIST. My siblings told me that it was a great place, showing their pictures. Versailles will be a good place to add in my list. Blessings to you and your family!

      1. Love the “seat of power” reference! I was reading Hebrews 13 a little bit ago and meditating how we are not to be lovers of money but to be content. So often these two ideas are quoted from 1 Timothy 6 and Philippians 4; however, the author of Hebrews combines them both. I do not want to be sidetracked by desires and pleasures! I am distracted enough with current events let alone worldly pleasures. So thankful for you, brother! Praying for God to keep working and sustaining you. Nathan and I are sharing your burdens for what is happening in and around Asia. Praying for God to continue to protect you and your family. Love and blessings to you and your family.

        1. True indeed, currents events is also a distraction and so does things, concepts, or issues that are closest to our hearts. But when we put a boundary between the mundane and Heavenly, and also what is GOD’s and caesar’s, than we will not be consumed by purely worldly stuff. Although it is not my type but you might like Netflix’ “A Week Away” and it is a recent Christian musical movie that talks about grace, though teenage stuff. Thank you also for your prayers.

    1. Grateful to GOD for His inspiration and His Word that He reveals to all of us, Jim! Humans are drawn to “many things” but some of them are not beneficial to our spiritual growth in JESUS CHRIST nor in our sanctification process. These can be technology, social media, and our own sense of worldly security (to name some), if we make it as the lord of our time/life and if we transfer our affection/attention/reliance from GOD to it. But notorious in all of these are money, power, and fame! The pursuit of these three lead to danger of succumbing to worshipping and relying on them. There is nothing wrong in pursuing them as long as one follows GOD Word, walk by faith in JESUS’ way, and be humble but that is very hard to do when intoxicated by power, fame, and money; just like a camel trying to enter a needle’s hole. Blessings to you and your family!

      1. This is quite nuanced! And Biblical! And that is good! This is the way. All things to be put in balance begins with our right worship of God and having other things less than God in our priority
