i was just having a discussion and i you know god expects us to be good stewards you know in the bible in the gospels jesus tells us a story he tells us a parable and he talks about how these guys were given a responsibility to be good stewards over resources that was given to them and jesus
00:32
clearly let us know that god has displeasure in people who waste resources and sometimes i think we in the church don't consider the fact that god has made us stewards stewards over his vineyard stewards over his resources stewards of time and y'all i could i sometimes i just feel like we we waste
01:14
time and waste resources trying to be seen just y'all we should always in whatever we do we should be asking ourselves questions and what i'm doing bringing value to god's mission see but a lot of times we don't ask that because we are our own agendas you know we are a lot of times
01:46
driven by self we're ambitious we want views and you know that's a whole nother video we want views we want following we want people to sow into our ministries we want to just be seen to be doing stuff and you know we doing stuff we having all these virtual meetings and conferences and revivals and and and all this stuff virtual concerts
02:19
and all this stuff and we're not asking the questions that need to be asked like who's getting delivered by what we're doing who's getting set free who is getting closer to god by what we doing it is sad because now god doesn't shut down a lot of our operations shut down our churches and stuff and we still carry it on with the same foolishness people out here hurting people out here need
02:49
real help and real saints who won't give them real truth in real direction and real love not people who just you know doing stuff to be doing stuff because the reality is god gonna ask us god is going to ask us about how we used our time and our resources for his glory and his agenda and you know sometimes it's a little frustrating
03:22
because ain't nobody no fool you know people know when your efforts are not genuine i mean you can't trick children anymore people know when you just want to be out there and you want followings you want a platform you want to be able to say oh we did this we did that and the question and i've said this before is have you even considered
03:54
whether your post your video your little online whatever have you considered that or whether it's helping somebody or not see jesus is our example jesus never did anything that didn't benefit somebody else that didn't you know call and woo people to god into truth and to love and to forgiveness and to wisdom jesus didn't waste his time jesus just didn't do stuff just to be doing stuff he didn't feed
04:26
the 5 000 so people can look at him he didn't heal those who were sick with the palsy he didn't open blinded eyes so people could say oh this is jesus you know and jesus had a great following but he wasn't doing things to be seen i i think sometimes we really need to ask ourselves what our motives are and we need to really be reminded that you know all this stuff that we doing
04:56
and we say we doing it in in in the name of christ are we really really doing that and are we really trying to help people like why waste time and resources and expense doing something if you ain't even doing it for the right reason you know the bible says you know people bodily exercise profited little or
05:26
sometimes i think we we still in a place where we're spinning our wheels where i don't know all i know is i you know covet 19 should teach us one thing life is very gradual and time is expensive and we should do what we can and the best we can with the time god gives us we should use the resource to love him and to love
06:00
others and like i said whatever it is that we're doing whether it's a post whether it's a video whether it's these online convocations and revivals and conferences and this that and the other all of these zoom meetings and stuff that we doing if it's not to help people y'all i think we don't understand that we do more harm than good when we're doing things and not doing it for the right reason
06:32
there are a lot of people who are disgruntled discouraged and displaced because we're really not doing things for the right reason we're doing things to say we're doing things you know and that's not helping anybody that's not helping anybody y'all let's just be mindful about our motives let's be mindful because y'all we're going to answer to god for you know we're going to answer you know how how i look let me talk
07:06
about me i can't talk about y'all doing all these videos you know and doing it for if i'm doing it for my own benefit and my for my own ambition and i go to god with that how do you think they're going to turn out you know if i'm if i'm hosting stuff just to say i'm doing it and i really don't care about whether somebody's getting better whether somebody's relationship with god is being strengthened
07:38
then what then what am i doing i i we y'all we we really because you know i was looking down my timeline and i just saw all these flyers and stuff and it just made me wonder and it made me first of all evaluate me like why are you doing this you know my son is ironic now the lord reminded me my son asked me that question today mom
08:09
you do videos every morning and almost every evening why do you do it and i said because i think that's what god wants me to do god wants me to help people and i said if i'm not helping and i don't know what i say if i'm not helping people i'm not doing anything i said that's the important thing son whatever you do if you're not helping people you're not doing anything and i think we in the church still haven't gotten it and we we don't here with our lives and everything and trying to get views that we really don't
08:44
care we don't care about whether we're helping people or not but and my phone froze up so i hope you can still hear me let's just like i said check out motives let's make sure that what we're doing is actually for the advancement of god's kingdom i'm not sure if we have gotten there yet
09:17
i'm not sure and that's scary be all because people people are looking for love and truth and forgiveness and a start over in a reset they're looking for truth they're looking for god and some people don't even know it but you know i don't think we we consider the fact that people really need help we just up here making noise
09:49
you know talking loud trying to be smart but y'all if we're not doing things to the glory of god we're wasting time we are wasting time and we've wasted enough we've wasted enough and we can't afford to waste another second another minute like for real we we should really question like before we say oh we gonna do this and you know
10:27
we're gonna have this program or we're gonna do this live we need to ask ourselves what is the goal you know i know you know in our school district when we have meetings and stuff we always ask that question okay what is the goal and if our answers are not student-centered then what we're doing doesn't matter you know it's the same in the church if our whatever we're doing is not centered around
10:57
uplifting people helping people you know get connected to god and strengthen in their connection to god then we're not doing anything i think we think because we got all these videos and we got all these views and we got these followings and we got all these poles and all these zoom meetings and and google me and yada yada we think we're doing something when we're not and people out here dying people out here struggling but because you got on a nice suit and a nice dress and you
11:29
praise the lord everybody on your live and stuff you think you're doing something because somebody looking i've looked at a lot of services and sometimes i said why am i watching this and they help me you know if whatever you doing i'm gonna end with this if whatever you're doing for the kingdom you call yourself doing for the kingdom is not about helping people you wasting time
12:01
and you in the way you ain't in the wheel you're in god's way i think god is still showing us just how disingenuous we are some of us still don't get it i mean i've heard i've heard people get on live oh i got this i'm out of focus oh i got this views and you think that justifies or solidifies or validate what you doing
12:38
all need to remember whatever you say you doing for god god gonna ask you about it god gonna ask you about it and god ain't gonna ask you about how many views you got god ain't gonna ask you about how many people follow you god ain't gonna ask you about how many people responded to your post how many times it was shared god is not going to ask you that god's gonna say what was your motive did you do it because you cared about somebody did you do it because
13:14
you want somebody to be encouraged did you do it because you really want somebody to actually get saved see we out here preaching singing doing all this stuff and we don't even care if people get saved like real talk we don't we don't care we don't care a lot of us don't we better check ourselves we better check ourselves y'all before we do anything we need to ask ourselves how is this going to help somebody how and if you can't come up with an
13:54
answer it's better not to do it it's better if you and i are not going to do things for the right reason it's better that we don't you know i know during this pandemic a lot of churches endeavor to be online and live and and but if your if your aim is not to reach people and bring them to christ not to your church but to christ then you shouldn't
14:27
be live if your ambition is anything other than going into the fields of god and trying to harvest for him then you shouldn't do it you i don't think we understand how dangerous that is i don't want to be a part of anything like i tell people i got i got my own problems i got my own struggles i got enough that i have to go to god for
15:03
all the time i don't want to add doing stuff and and being involved and engaged and stuff for the sake of doing it and doing it for the wrong reasons no yo no are we being effective like we really need to ask ourselves especially those of us who minister on social media are we being effective like are we really let's start with do i
15:40
care about people am i doing this because i care about god and god care about people and ask me to care about people so that's why i'm doing it because i care about people and y'all the truth is y'all a lot of us don't a lot of us don't i hear more a lot of times about like i said views and click the follow button
16:13
more than jesus loved me you know you hear more and i i understand that it takes finances to run ministries but you hear more about give to the cash app and give to this and you can drop off your ties here more than if you need anything call me you know i want you to share our our video conference or our video revival because i i want to brag about how many views i get
16:53
i don't care really if anybody is encouraged or not y'all we still stuck and that's the truth of the matter a lot of us i don't know about a lot of these churches we still stuck in that mindset that was prevalent before covet now god like i said god didn't shut down a whole bunch of our churches and we still operated we don't need we but all we did was go from one platform to another we went from brick and mortar to an online platform with the same attitude
17:29
i i don't know i don't know but i know one thing it's a dangerous thing to say you doing stuff you do in ministry and you don't and you ain't doing it for the right reason anytime you're doing it for the wrong reason you're wasting time even if it's an encouraging word something like y'all we better start i'm talking about me first we better start checking our motives you know cause someone else ain't right it ain't right
18:02
it's not right it's not right it just ain't right and like i said people ain't stupid people are not stupid people ain't ignorant like we think people you know oh we got discernment people got sense people can tell you know and and i'm gonna just be real a lot of people a lot of ministries out here we can tell you being you're not genuine and that does more harm and see a lot of times
18:34
we help the enemy out because we aren't genuine and all the devils see see we give the devil too much evidence because we ain't working with the pure heart jesus said the pure in heart want to see him not the busybody not how how many events you can have or how many videos you can have or how many followers you have how many views you have how many posts you made he didn't say that he said pure and hard
19:10
if i go out there and feed a homeless person and my heart ain't right it don't mean nothing to god y'all it don't mean the thing i i think we all do we all just really need to be reminded because a lot of us like to call ourselves doing stuff for god and our hearts ain't right now moses ain't right and we think we going up there with our little laundry list of what we did but jesus said it clear a lot of us going to talk about the lord i did lord i did that he don't even know who you are see when we
19:45
when we have all this stuff and doing all this stuff and we ain't doing it for the right right reason these are going to look at us and say who are you i don't i look like i tell people i got enough promise i uh i can't afford no i'm talking to all of us whatever you call yourself doing for god whether it's in public or secret it don't matter make sure
20:19
make sure it's about other people y'all and like and i can i can feel some y'all don't like what i'm saying because you the main ones you're the main ones the only thing you want to do is hoop and holler and talk and and seeing some of us get on here and sing and we don't care whether the song is encouraging someone why do anything if we're not gonna do it for the right reason
20:52
that's all i'm saying like and like i said it take too much energy anyhow it takes too much energy to be doing all this stuff and then not doing it for the right reason you know my dad will always you know ask us when we were endeavored to do things when we wanted to do things he would say well have you considered the value added you know it didn't matter what we were doing or what we wanted to do my dad would say what's the value added how is this going to benefit you is this
21:26
benefiting you is this benefiting somebody else we were out here just doing stuff and thinking and calling it ministry and it's a straight up mess literally some of it literally a hot mess just because we're doing stuff just because you got followers just because you don't wanna lie just because you're doing zoom church just because you're in the building just it don't matter just because don't mean it's ministry it doesn't mean it's ministry we need to be reminded of that like i said i know
21:59
this ain't probably ain't gonna be popular or but y'all we need to be reminded because when our our motives are right then what god wants to happen will happen you know when our intentions are right god's agenda will be on the forefront and it'll be and it'll be easy for everybody to see that this person really is trying to do what god wants you know i have seen on the other polar
22:32
end i have seen lives i've seen posts where you know the spirit know the spirit and you can tell that this person is really engaged in trying to do what god wants them to do which is to reach people and to encourage people and and and you can tell it y'all like i said ain't nobody no fool ain't nobody no fool y'all you know you know i told somebody i'd rather it
23:04
but like i said first of all it's just doing videos especially to the frequency you know is is it's just too much to say you ain't doing it for the right reason we need to check our motives we need to check our motives because all this stuff you know it's discouraging that we don't care like you know i think that's the root of it it's discouraging that we don't care we are busy bodies as the bible would
23:46
say just because i got a program i i'm in ministry just because i got on the line of saying or put a scripture up you know it's deeper than that and like i said if nobody is being drawn to christ either initially or you know solidifying their relationship with him and working on them then what you doing what are you doing i we need to ask
24:22
ourselves what are we doing why am i doing this a lot of us i guess a little too scared to be honest with ourselves because we know a lot of us know our motives ain't right and then wonder why the world don't want no part of our foolishness and like i said if it hadn't been or for genuine people in my life i wouldn't want nothing to do with it either you know just be let's just let's just
24:59
let's be genuine so we can help others let's be genuine so we can put what god want at the front god want people god wants people to be saved god wants people to be delivered god wants people to be healed and what god wants should be the driving force for what we do let me say that again what god wants should be the driving force for any and everything that we do but we don't even care enough about god
25:39
to want what he wants and because we don't want what he we what he wants what we do what we do it's just like like i said we all we got we all got enough we we got enough burdens in our lives right we do we we have enough problems we don't need to add any more burden to our lives just because we want to be doing stuff
26:17
and want to be seen and want to have followers and want to have shares and want to be respected you know the scribes and the pharisees did that jesus couldn't you know jesus really didn't have anything nice to say about them because everything they did and they they followed the law you know you got a lot of people oh follow the law for the law they followed the law and jesus still caught them staying in vipers because their intentions weren't right
26:49
you know they would go the widow they would go visit the widow but jesus said they were going in and just mentioned their house too and take advantage of them too because their mothers were they didn't care you know we like people i know one thing i'm gonna make sure i can't talk for you i'ma make sure that when i you know engage in quote quote ministry activity i want god to help me ask myself
27:28
victoria why are you doing this and if my answer is not to bring glory to god or to help somebody i pray to god that i don't do it i pray that i don't do it that's like being a teacher and you don't care about students what you in the classroom for you know that's like calling yourself a chef and you don't know how to cook what you in the kitchen for that's like calling yourself being a doctor and you you don't have the skill set or the passion to help people
28:06
what you're in the hospital for you taking up space the same thing with ministry and in church if it ain't about people why are you doing it like real talk ask yourself that why why am i getting ready to post this why am i getting ready to say this why am i getting ready to do this why am i getting ready to give this because y'all i'll tell you what if you don't ask yourself here
28:42
you can you can bet your bottom dollar the question won't be asked of you and it'll be asked of you by the judge we like to call people fake and we like to talk about people in the world but you know anytime we say we do a ministry and the heart of god's uh agenda ain't at the root of it it we being fake too we just look good doing it i y'all we got this thing messed up before you take a position
29:25
why am i why am i getting ready to do this because see the riches and the collateral are people's souls and if that don't matter to you don't do it don't do anything don't don't add blood to your hands because you don't care about the impact that your doings are having on people hey like i said we got our own problems
29:57
all of us got our own problems we don't need to acquire any more blood on our hands than our own because our motives ain't right when we call ourselves doing stuff i just pray our mother's alright because we ain't got time to waste y'all we don't have time to waste we don't have time to waste we don't have time to waste and i i'm looking at some of the comments that i said some of y'all pastors and and people talking about that i'm glad y'all this needs to be talked about because
30:41
some of us going for as my cousin nathan would say going for broke some of us were just going for too much and we just doing stuff and we don't care about people and like i said ain't nobody crazy people know when you being real or not people know when you make an effort to reach them or not you know i don't know as my aunt virginia would say just let it be real she would sing that song let it be real
31:18
everything y'all everything we do for that we'll be singing that song i don't even think about what we're saying everything we do for the master let it be real even if you praying jesus said that there's a man doing all that long praying and all this and then another new god who wouldn't even look up to heaven he said but one of them left justified and it wasn't the one who was doing all that long praying and falling into the arms and begging repetitions either i think we all just need to revisit the
31:52
simplicity of what jesus won't jesus want people to be in relationship with him period that's it and if if you in ministry is not about that for you then you shouldn't be in ministry a lot of churches need to close down because you are not in the people business it's better for people they have better better for
32:27
there not to be a church or a little organization or an assembly that that don't care about people it's a better did not even have people need genuine people who got god's heart you know he's around him making a bunch of racket we gotta we gotta be about our father's business y'all and like i said jesus was the perfect example nothing nothing was done by jesus
33:01
just to be done just to be done he always pointed to the father he always pointed to the one that sent him always always but we want god's glory and we want his resources and we want his role in his lane but as a cost is the cost for abusing ministry there's a lot of abuse going on
33:42
you know i know people think about sexual scandals in church and that shouldn't be going on and stealing and stuff we like to talk about those scandals but there's another another scandal another pandemic going on and it's the fact that people are in ministry and people are in position and you don't care about nobody that's the biggest scandal and that's gonna been going on since the day of jesus that's the biggest scandal going on because if we would fix that a lot of these other stuff
34:15
let me going on when you get down to it we don't care like i said i strongly believe that we live in a time where christians don't even care that people dying going hell right now we don't care as long as we got some views as long as we got longer we can argue with somebody about scripture all that arguing and trying to correct folks no go love somebody if you ain't gonna do that go sit down we just too much i love y'all i'm going to be it
34:54
y'all pray i'd like to see i'm i'm i'm humble enough y'all pray whatever i call myself doing for god please let it be of the right place in the right motivation i got enough problems dealing with victoria i don't need to acquire anything else anything else y'all pray that my intentions stay period you know i like i ain't above it i know some of y'all super saved and everything you do is of the right no i
35:27
have to fight with that too so y'all pray for me cause uh i ain't above it either i ain't above it and i don't know like i said maybe god just want to kind of prick our heart tonight about our motivations and why we're doing stuff and having all this stuff making all this noise and there ain't nobody being helped and that don't even bother us i don't want no parts of that none like i said i i have enough problems
36:03
with being my own stumbling block i don't want to be nobody else's because my heart ain't in the right place i love y'all let it just just be real just be real y'all just be real if you don't do god business let it be because you got god's heart and you care about people just like god does because anything outside of that is wrong even if your objective is to grow your church that's wrong first of all it ain't no church
36:42
i don't know who needed to hear that but you are not in ministry to grow a church or an assembly you are you are supposed to be helping people find god i don't know who needed to hear that not all that mess online then some of us got the audacity to be busybody then the stuff we put out that don't even sound good anyway don't waste time if you ain't gonna do it for the right reason don't do it
37:21
plain and simple anyway i love you all y'all be blessed and um you know let's just try to be better let's just try to be better y'all let's just try to be better good night thank y'all for all of you who do help with the care for the least of us ministry and thank god for those of you who helped with the right intent like i said because i'm going to tell you if you you doing this and we ain't doing it for the right reason it don't matter to god
37:52
now the people will be feared and stuff but god gonna deal with us about our hearts even when it comes to this y'all even when it comes to this even when it comes to this so you ain't i'm gonna tell you now if you ain't given with the right intent ain't no need you giving nothing if i'm not feeding and and and and give us the hygiene stuff for the right reason and i'm wasting my time doing this just be real thank you for those of you who are genuine though and keep this going y'all pray like i
38:22
said i'm for real i ain't above it y'all pray that that when i'm doing stuff for god that is genuine and real because i do not lord have mercy i don't understand before god him like i told you was disingenuous he was unsincere and he was doing it for the wrong moment and you don't did that wasted all these hours and times and resources and it didn't mean nothing i love y'all i'm going to have a good night be read be real
38:58
ask yourself why are you doing stuff in minutes you know for god ask yourself why and be honest about your answer and whatever your answer is you make the adjustment if it's to help people go forward if it's not sit down and don't do anything
