Consider the Future by Kit Pharo

This goes for any business, but is specifically written by a rancher to ranchers/farmers.  It is sad how few ranching businesses stay as such from one generation to the next.  Kit explains again one reason for this.

Cowboy Logic: “The future ain’t what it used to be.”

Consider the Future –

By Kit Pharo

Have you noticed that the most successful and happy people throughout history have been those who made decisions that were based on the future?   It’s true!   Successful people know that nothing stays the same.   The present is different from the past – and the future will be different from the present.   Those who make decisions that are based on the future will always have a HUGE competitive advantage over those who continue to make decisions based on the past and/or the present.

Unfortunately, nearly all people from all walks of life are afraid to make decisions that are based on anything but the past or the present.   It has always been this way, and it will probably always be this way.   Even though they can see things transforming before their very eyes, they are reluctant to make any changes in what they are doing.   It’s as though they would rather fail doing what they have always done than succeed if success requires change.   That is a shame – but it gives you the opportunity to move your family and your family’s business to a very sought-after position.

Based on what you think about the future, what kind of management decisions should you be making in your cow-calf operation?   I’m not going to tell you what I think.   I want you to do your own thinking.   You may come up with something different and/or better than what I have.   The decisions you come up with, however, need to be based on what you think the future holds.   Be bold in your actions.   Those who are slow to take the appropriate actions may lose all they have – forcing their kids and grandkids to get jobs in town.

Sabbath Day to Keep Holy

Once again Kit Pharo, Pharo Cattle Company, boldly expounds the holiness of God (YHWH) in his Sabbath Day Devotions.

The First Memorial Day Celebration –

Last week, we discussed the Memorial Day celebration that takes place in America to honor those who died fighting in one of America’s wars.   As I pondered this, it dawned on me that God, the creator of the universe, established a weekly memorial day of his creative power and ability.   Unfortunately, most of mankind pretty much ignores this memorial day.

 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so, on the seventh day he rested from all his work.   And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.   (Genesis 2:2-3)

 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.   Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.   On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.   For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.   Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.   (Exodus 20:8-11)

The Sabbath (seventh day) was given to mankind at the close of creation by God himself as a memorial of his creative power.   God blessed it and made it holy.   Later, God reestablished the importance of the Sabbath when he gave us his Ten Commandments.   The Fourth Commandment (above) is the only one of the ten that begins with the word “remember” – and yet it is the only one of the ten that has all but been forgotten and ignored by most of today’s so-called Christians.   If God did not intend for us to remember the Sabbath day and to keep it holy, why did he give us the Fourth Commandment?

 Many of today’s so-called Christians teach that we now only have Nine Commandments.   In doing so, I believe they are gravely in error.   You may or may not agree… but I am convinced, now more than ever, that God’s Ten Commandments represent HIS standard of holiness – they always have and they always will, at least until heaven and earth disappear (Matthew 5:17-18).

 I have no trouble acknowledging the fact that I can only be saved by God’s grace through my faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9).    It is impossible for me to be good enough to deserve God’s gift of salvation.   It is impossible for me to earn God’s gift of salvation.   I cannot be saved by obeying the Ten Commandments, because it is impossible for me to perfectly obey them.   From God’s perspective (when he looks at my heart and my mind), I have broken all of his Ten Commandments.

 Even though I cannot be saved by obeying God’s Ten Commandments, I firmly believe I should do my best to obey them – all of them.   Why?   Because they represent God’s standard of holiness.   Disobeying them would be wrong.   If I love God and if I love Jesus, I will obey their commandments (John 14:15, I John 2:3-4 and I John 5:1-3).

Now… don’t get all bent out of shape about what day you GO to church.   I don’t care what day you GO to church – and I don’t think God cares what day you GO to church.   Instead of just GOING to church, I encourage you to start BEING the church.   I realize that BEING the church is a new concept to most of today’s so-called Christians – but that is exactly what God had in mind when he created the church.

 Don’t just GO to church; BE the Church

Sabbath Day Devotion – Kit Pharo

Was Jesus a Vegetarian?

I had someone ask me if Jesus was a vegetarian.   That is a question I have never thought much about.   Apparently there are some in the vegan world promoting this concept.
Answer: Jesus was not a vegetarian.   The Bible records Jesus eating fish in Luke 24:42-43.   In Luke 22:7-15, we are told that Jesus ate the Passover meal with his disciples.   This meal included the Passover lamb.

I would like to say that Jesus was a big beef eater, but I cannot find any scriptures to support that way of thinking.   However, when Jesus tells the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32, he said the “father killed the fattened calf” to celebrate the return of his son.

After the flood, God gave mankind permission to eat meat (Genesis 9:1-3).   God has never rescinded this permission.

With that said… there is nothing wrong with a Christian being a vegetarian.   The Bible does not command us to eat meat.   The Bible does say, though, that we should not force our convictions about this issue on other people or judge them by what they eat or do not eat (Romans 14:1-3).

Don’t just GO to church; BE the Church
