Jesus didn't flip over tables so you

Greetings Church! 

I've reserved my comments on the whole "100 Black preachers meeting with Trump" fiasco in fear of reacting instead of responding...However, I think I'm ready to respond now. I probably shouldn't even speak on it, but I have to let this out! 

Let us stand for the reading of God's word! 
Turn with me to the book of Matthew, chapter 6...verse 24.

When you got it, say Amen! 

On the count of 3, let's read this together.  

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.- Matthew 6:24

You may be seated in the presence of God 

Preachers, Pastors, Priests, or whatever you like to call them LOOOOOVEEE to use this here passage to verbally beat you for not giving what they consider enough to their respective causes..... in the name of Jesus. With that said, this should a very VERY familiar piece of scripture to most, men of the cloth and otherwise. 

I really tried to see this situation from all angles. 

At first,I'll admit I didn't think it was real. 

A couple pastors? Maybe,...100? Nah...109? Couldn't be! 

No way this could be happening....

RIGHT.AFTER.A.BLACK.MAN.GOT.JUMPED.AT.A TRUMP.RALLY.

AND.HE.SAID.MAYBE.THEY.DESERVED.IT.

Then, I tried to give them benefit of the doubt, I thought maybe they're trying to be heard or even better yet corner  and confront him (Sorry, I'm a bit confrontational by nature)  but certainly there is absolutely no way any of these men of God would be on that Antichrist's side AFTER recent events. 

Then I saw video....of some black preachers coming out and actually defending presidential hopeful Donald Trump,his comments, and lack of policy. 

After I picked my face up off of the floor, I immediately got sick to my stomach

Let's be clear. First, I'm not condemning all pastors. I'm not condemning all pastors who went to the meeting. In fact, I'm not condemning anyone. I don't have a problem with 100 Black pastors meeting....I don't have a problem with 100 pastors meeting with ANY candidate, even though we all know what the deal was with Donny Trump. I just can't seem to wrap my mind around them going in with no direction, and coming out with just a few repeatable soundbites. The guys endorsing Trump after said "meeting" sound like a bunch of star struck groupies from Love and Politics or something! 

Jamal Bryant has been outspoken with his criticism of these pastors had some good points. No way you could get 100 white preachers to endorse this fool but here you come with your hands out. 

"Yes Mr Trump sir, I'd like some cake sir."

You can get 100 black preachers to meet about endorsing a clear racist but can't get 100 black preachers to meet about black...sorry I tend to get a little passionate from the pulpit. 

I could go on for days, but let's get back to scripture. 
Some pastors use Matthew 6:24 to make their flock feel bad about not giving enough. Let's flip it for a second. 

Pastors, you cannot serve both God and money either!  

I know yo...I mean God gotta have his money and you gotta have yours...but I'm sure if he thought you needed more, he would give it to you. After all, God provides...right?

My question is, how much money did you get to come out for Trump?

How much?

We ask that you come!
Is there one today?

Will one stand up and tell how much you got paid to endorse this raving lunatic?

*Musicians play Jeopardy Music* 

I believe there are 2 that will come forward. 

Nope? Ok...

Let's end with one more scripture and you can go get your Sunday Brunch and be home in time for your football.  

Here's another scripture that, why well known, may not be as well known as the other... but it's pretty self explanatory. 

"Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly"

Jesus didn't flip over tables so you could sell out cuh!

Racism and Police Brutality

I know a lot of people have racism and police brutality on their minds now more than ever. Some are complaining about it and some are  actively thinking about how to fight it. Maybe you are as well. I hope you are. All it takes for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.. Have you considered how to make the Black community more powerful, so we can have a stronger voice in society? Have you thought of getting into financial shape, so you have a business or generational wealth to pass on to your children? What about the Black dollar? Have you thought about ways to keep the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend every year circulating within the Black community? These are the questions I’ve been thinking about for years and here’s how I’m putting in the work to make big things happen for our communities... I teach people how to create the kind of economy that has real power in America. Because the truth is… The only color they REALLY care about is GREEN  Money can give you access, power, an

I care about you and want you to be protected

 I care about you and want you to be protected I will not mince my words here. We live in unprecedented times. I take the mission of equal justice under law VERY seriously. Quite honestly, we all know I own and operate  ShopMEEK.com  but I do not do build this business for money.  While I do like the residual income it provides, I already have enough to take care of my bills. I don't say that to impress you, I say that to impress upon you that I'm more mission driven than commission driven.  I take this very seriously and hope you do as well. When I was in my early 20s, I had a black Cadillac...vogue tires...black rag top...gold pin stripe...chrome FACTORY wheels...wooo that thing was clean.  I'm from the Eastend of Richmond. I always wanted a Cadillac. I've owned about 10...However I got pulled over and profiled once a week. It got so bad I ended up considering selling my car. I could not keep what I earned and deserved because cops decided to pull me over

Decade end....

Quick question... Have you reviewed your decade yet? I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close. Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :) Where were you in your business in 2010? Where are you now? What did you start? What did you end? What investments did you make? What skill sets did you learn? What did you miss out on? I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of.  Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
