The Danger of Inactivity

Posted onNovember 14, 2009 | 1 comments

Inertia is inactivity; the idea that without outside intervention an object will remain motionless or on the same path. The sluggard is a scriptural example of spiritual inertia. Proverbs 21:25 says, "The desire of the sluggard kills him, for his hands refuse to labor." He desires change but doesn't act. Tomorrow is his Savior but everyday he wakes up to today. Proverbs 26:16 says, "The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly." In the midst of the slow death of inactivity, he's deceived. He rationalizes his inaction in order to maintain his "tomorrow" action plan....Keep Reading

Watching and Waiting

Confession time: when I was a teenager and a new Christian I really was excited about end times teaching - you know, the books that have the timelines and dates and all that. I saw nuclear warfare, high tech helicopters, and maybe even Henry Kissenger, in the pages of Revelation. I am slightly embarrassed today to admit that I was certain that Jesus was going to return before the 1980's came to an end....Keep Reading

It's no small accomplishment to be 100% wrong about the results of last weekend's playoff games. I didn't get one game right! What are the odds of that happening? I'm kinda proud about it......Keep Reading

Play-off Predictions

Well, here we are again, it's play-off time. As a Giants fan, I am pretty jazzed about Sundays game against the Eagles. I can't deny I'm hoping for a Superbowl repeat, but I realize that the Eagles are coming in hungry, with momentum, and with a win over the Giants in their last regular season meeting. So there is no arrogant cockiness here (well ok, maybe a little, but only a little). What a great time of year! I love the play-offs!!!...Keep Reading

He Restores My Soul

In Psalm 23 David writes of the Lord our Shepherd, "He restores my soul." I am not sure I fully appreciate how important it is that my soul be regularly restored, but I want to grow in the awareness of my soul's need to be restored. We have a hard time ignoring the signals of a physically sick body, but I suspect for many of us it is all too easy to limp along with a thin and malnourished soul....Keep Reading
