Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Tuesday Rambling 6.11.13

A few scattered thoughts for Tuesday.

Time with the kids:

  • Monday, we spent about an hour and a half in our living room searching for the Apple TV remote.  We cleaned everything in our path, but alas . . . no remote!
  • To celebrate, we went to McDonald’s and got ice cream and milkshakes.  Don’t ask me how, but within minutes of leaving McDonald’s I had to pull over and help them get whipped cream topping off their fingers . . . and the van seat. It made for a good laugh!
  • We took a bunch of kids on a bike ride in the evening Monday to the playground at Rimer.  Traveling with a half dozen kids by bike for a mile each way is definitely an adventure!

Sports:

  • Sheldon Ocker had a nice article about why Indians fans shouldn’t panic about losing so many games recently.  I agree.  Rough stretch, to be sure.  But, no reason to lose hope.  This team is much deeper than in years past.
  • Rafael Nadal won his 8th French Open on Sunday.  Even if you don’t care about tennis, you have to admit one person winning one tournament eight times is incredible!

Discipleship:

  • Do you care more about making disciples than whether you like your church’s worship service?
  • Is your day to day Christianity truly more important to you than what happens at your church on Sunday or Wednesday?
  • Challenge: invite someone to study the Bible with you.  Even if you don’t know much about the Bible, I bet this will challenge you to listen more.  If someone says yes, you could just go off your church’s sermons.  Teach what you learn!

Random:

  • Are fast food milkshakes really worth $2? Alexa and David (suckers!) got milkshakes with their money, and I spent $1 for two dishes of ice cream for Jocelyn and me.
  • I am really looking forward to Project Shine 2013.  God has provided so much. I pray he brings us through an amazing week of ministry next week!

Faith Quote:

“We are settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves.” – David Platt, Radical
