BIGGIE: THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

“If the game shakes me or breaks me. I hope it makes me a better man. Take a better stand. Put money in my moms hand. Get my daughter this college plan, so she don’t need no man…Stay far from timid. Only make moves when ya heart’s in it. And live the phrase the Sky’s The Limit… [112] Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on. Just keep on pressin on. Sky is the limit and you know that you can have what you want, be what you want.” Notorious BIG featuring 112, “Sky’s The Limit, Life After Death. 1997.

RIGHTEOUSNESS. Give yourself a hand clap of praise. Give thanks to God for getting us through another week of productivity that was unscathed by the BS.  It’s been a very political week hasn’t it? And our elected officials are still ping-ponging back-and-forth on a deal to spark the economy.  Well let them keep on playing hide-and-seek with our country’s future.  In the meantime, let’s keep grindin’ and gettin’ to it because the bright side of this is that God is still in control.  He knows the desires of our hearts. He knows our needs and our wants. He knows that these folk got the economy all screwed up.  He also keeps His promises to those who love Him and glorify Him. So with this in mind I challenge you to step into this last weekend of July holding fast to the reality that the SKY IS THE LIMIT.  Even though the economy is jaded, remember that God gets the last word on who gets what, when, where, and how.  Not Boehner. Not the Tea Party. Not the Democrats. Not even our President Barack Obama.  While we keep praying that our leaders make the right decisions, remember in the words of The Notorious B.I.G. when he says “if the game shakes me or breaks me. I hope it makes me a better man. Take a better stand. Put money in my moms hand. Get my daughter this college plan, so she don’t need no man.” Biggie had his own life “game” that he had to play.  We all do.  In the end, whatever it is should make us better human beings and better providers for our families.  So “stay far from timid”, as Biggie says. And “only make moves when your heart’s in it.” And remember to “live the phrase the SKY IS THE LIMIT.”

    To illegal and immoral street pharmacists, enablers, and those that benefit from known illicit activity…
    “The Game” that Biggie alludes to in this verse isn’t, or rather shouldn’t be the game that people who love life and God should be living. The Notorious B.I.G. told me his aspiration was to be the biggest dope dealer PERIOD.
    “The Game” I feel that DDR refers to is life in general. So yes, “Sky’s the Limit”; but let’s go about obtaining and striving it in a manner that doesn’t kill, as The Notorious B.I.G. was so willing to do in order to reach his goals. How can selling poison (death) to other human beings make you better?
