I: You definitely give yourself a good time with these videos and the revenue you get from it!
A: Magicians also give themselves a good time, so? I also create illusions, so? Magicians also get ideas from other magicians, so? Magicians also copy performances of other magicians, so?
I tell you what gives me a good time, the fact that other people get joy off my educational videos, that gives me a joy.
Magicians also sell their videos with someone else's ideas (performances and/or technique). I mean, I could sell them as well as others do and still use revenue for the performances alone, but my mind and heart are not in money (1 Timothy 6:10) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
I mean, I do need money to survive, but I don't love it. Because (Matthew 6:21) for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. This is why money is not my priority because (Matthew 6:24) None is able to serve two lords, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one, and despise the other; ye are not able to serve God and Mammon.
I am not implying that all people should do or shouldn't do the same as I am doing, this is just a personal preference whether if you do it or not, it should be respected. But I do feel education on this deceitful form of art, is desperately need it.
What's the point to gain the whole world if you lose your own soul? (Matthew 16:26), (Mark 8:36).
(Matthew 6:25-26) Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
I am not giving myself good time for my own glory. Whatever I do with the money, that is between me and my Father God, is not something that other people should be concern. (Matthew 6:3-4) But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
(Matthew 6:19-20) Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
