Neither my shoes, my car, nor my phone are status symbols.

If not who, then when? If not where, then why? — Questions to ask when pondering the question, “What question should we ask?”

One of the ways I determine whether or not I should read a book is, “Even if I don’t enjoy it, will I be glad I read it?”

“If it doesn’t kill you, it just makes you stronger” is a little bit right and a little bit wrong.

Hey Pizza sellers, consider this: How would people respond if they had to eat your pizza crust with no toppings? Ideally it would still be an enjoyable experience, but if it would be an unpleasant thing to eat, reconsider your recipe.

To say, “There is a good thing that happened as a result of this bad thing,” is not to say, “I’m glad this bad thing happened.”

Did you know – the Fighter Verse Song Team (including me) has finished their new CD. It’s Set Two!

You can go read the information page about the new CD over at the Fighter Verse Song Blog.

And you can get one and start memorizing the Word of God!

Here’s the video of one of the a capella songs from the CD.

It is not up to you (or anyone) to determine which parts of the Bible are true. It is up to you (and everyone) to determine what the authors meant as they wrote each part of the Bible.

Gal6

If anyone is leading you towards a god that is false, they are leading you away from Yahweh.

The number of people you should help is somewhere between zero and everyone.

For the Christian, there is a subtext of joy under every passage of Scripture.

It is good to ask this question often: “Is this what God wants me to be doing right now?”

The questions “Do I have enough money?” and “Am I spending money wisely?” are two different questions which might have two different answers.

Authors, it’s your job to make me want to read what you’re writing.

The next time you feel a person (or group of people) is being unreasonable, think about this: Is it possible that you’re not really considering the issue from their point of view?

Headline from local paper this week: “Lyme disease on the uptick in Minnesota”.

I’m imagining the editor thinking, “See what I did there?”

Yep. We see it.

Right now is a good time to ask yourself – would you rather be very rich and talented or happy and at peace?

Rom 8

If you’re trying to stop a tank, using a weapon that only dents the outside won’t work against the machine or those it’s carrying. A man wielding a BB gun might chip the paint or put a ding in the metal, but the guys inside the tank will only care if you blow a hole in it or stop it from functioning.

 

 

Buffet

God’s transcendence, glory, eminence and worth is, like His Gospel, so diverse and expansive that no human can focus on more than a very little of it at once. So it is like a buffet – you must choose what you are going to think about, dwell on, consider, be thankful for. You can’t eat it all.

Choose wisely.

“I might be doing it for the wrong reason,” is a bad excuse for not doing the right thing.
