BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

  • In Monopoly, why do you only get a hundred bucks on the Community Chest card when your life insurance matures?  What lame agent sold you that policy?
  • I got one of the Final Four right.  It was enough to win a pool with about 8 people in it.
  • Can we finally agree that the media really don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to the best college teams?  This rule should apply to football too.
  • “Christians, then, should expect to find nonbelievers who are much nicer, kinder, wiser, and better than they are.  Why? Christian believers are not accepted by God because of their moral performance, wisdom, or virtue, but because of Christ’s work on their behalf.  Most religions and philosophies of life assume that one’s spiritual status depends on your religious attainments.  This naturally leads adherents to feel superior to those who don’t believe and behave as they do.  The Christian gospel, in any case, should not have that effect.” – Tim Keller
  • Praying for a friend who is soon quitting his job and going into a ministry position with a local organization.
  • It is very easy to wish that Christ would make us all morally perfect at the instant of salvation.  Sanctification–the process of becoming like Christ–is filled with mystery, difficulty, adventure, joy, and change all mixed together in such a way that brings ultimate glory to God and deep, satisfying joy to the believer.
  • Round two of Kevin vs. Best Buy is going down this afternoon.  I am attempting to return a product and get my money back.  I have proof from my bank that they charged the card, but I don’t have a receipt and they don’t have a history of the transaction.  I can tell them the exact date and time of the transaction and who the cashier was, and they still don’t have it. Should be fun!
  • I am really excited that our church’s administrative assistant is “back in the saddle” after a layoff due to surgery.  Praying for continuing healing and for a good integration back to work.
