The season of juicy fruit.
The land gives, we reap and enjoy.
The season of sharing, sharing what is abundant on the bushes.
Sharing what we can do without.
Is filling ourselves with sunlight.
Recharge our batteries, new energy.
The air and the light give, we reap and enjoy.
And then we share. We share what we can do without.
Because that is freedom.
To choose to share.
To give away what is surplus.
To get rid of the unnecessary.

The Open Share icon conveys the act of sharing by visually representing one hand passing an object to another hand, as in “pass it on” or “sharing”. The icon also represents an “eye”, as in “look at this”. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To read aloud, or to appoint, or to be summoned
Kerusso – “to be a herald, to officiate as a herald; to proclaim after the manner of a herald, always with the suggestion of formality, gravity, and an authority which must be listened to and obeyed; to publish, proclaim openly something which has been done; used of the public proclamation of the Gospel and matters pertaining to it, made by John the Baptist, by Jesus, by the apostles, and other Christian teachers.”
Does everyone have a responsibility to proclaim the gospel?
(Matthew 5:16) In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Too many are afraid for what or Whom is mocked by the majority of society. Therefore they often miss the boat which can bring them to a safe-haven.
Mankind is given answers to their many questions, but not many do want to go looking into those old books which provides enough answers to get going again, to see the ‘upside of things’ again, and to find renewed strength to conquer this world.
When we dare look up and see in the wonders of nature the Might Hand of the Most High we shall find consolation and help. Let us not be blind for the free given solace and the empowerment which is lying in front of us in the Bible. It is by sharing that Word that we should help others also to find the Way to the better life.
- safe-haven: only God gives inward peace
- depend on Him.
- God = mighty rock that keeps safe
- = fortress where you can feel secure.
- God saves and honours
- Trust God
- success is never defined nor determined by people
- People are frail, fickle, selfish and unreliable
- God never changes
- God will remain faithful to the cause and you
- realize value of growth and maturity
- God His Spirit = Guide
- Faith demands we look forward but fear will keep us frozen, unwilling and unbending.
- Keep your eyes on the King and follow His lead.
Human Nature: What does the Bible teach?
“Only God gives inward peace, and I depend on him. God alone is the mighty rock that keeps me safe, and he is the fortress where I feel secure. God saves me and honors me. He is that mighty rock where I find safety. Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety.” Ps 62:5-8
Maybe today you feel like giving up. May be you feel like a frog hanging on the side of a gator’s mouth. It could go either way : ) Hang on friend. God didn’t bring you this far to leave you high and dry. Here’s some things you need to remember. One, success is never defined nor determined by people. God is the one who defines what success is so get your eyes off of the opinions of people 😉 People are frail, fickle, selfish and unreliable…

Do you have something on your mind? Do you have something to tell? Are you convinced someone would like to listen to you? are you willing to share your knowledge to others?
We do have a give-away. It does not cost you any dime. It will cost you only some time.
Will it bring in money for you? We can only tell you not everything turns around money. We believe there are higher values in live.
Why not share something with others just for fun, for love?
We are still looking for interested writers, who want to tell their end of the story. Those who feel inspired by what is going on in the world, enjoy seeing things in nature, capturing the beauties of this world, are welcome to share their positive experience.
Are you the one we are looking for?

- Sharing Week Connects Dutch Sharers through National Event (shareable.net)
Sharing Week is in full-swing in the Netherlands. Running until October 15th, with events throughout the country, primarily at Seats2meet coworking locations, it’s an opportunity to celebrate sharing, discuss challenges and opportunities, and envision sharing’s bright future. This is the second Sharing Week, which comes hot on the heels of the first one held in June.
The sharing economy is a very popular issue. With all the fuss in the media around initiatives such as Airbnb and Uber you could almost forget the actual value of the sharing economy. To show the value of the sharing economy, ambassadors organized the national Sharing Week where attention is paid to many sharing initiatives that are active in the Netherlands.Throughout the week, there have been events at seven locations through the Netherlands. What’s the importance of scheduling it this way? How do the various locations differ?
The importance is to spread knowledge about the topic of sharing economy throughout the country. Because every city is a hub on its own, with several spokes around it, who differ in specific knowledge and expertise and who can create relevant connections in the city and around it. So this way, connections which are already there between initiatives become stronger and new ones will be made.

- Suppository preaching (onedaringjew.wordpress.com)
Much preaching today does not attempt to relate the Old Testament to Jesus but to their narcissistic audience: Get rid of the frogs in your life, purge yourself of poverty, find your purpose, live your dream, reach your po-tential. What they don’t do is expository preaching, that is, preach the Bible, verse by verse and connect it to Jesus. We should, writes Sinclair Ferguson, “develop an instinctive mindset and, corresponding to that, such a passion for Jesus Christ himself, that we will find our way to him in a natural and realistic way rather than a merely formulaic way.
