This post will be on the light side because I really didn’t have time to work on it, I apologize in advance

It’s not fun when your flight has been canceled for the following day at 6:45am when you arrive at the airport the day before thinking your flight was 7:25pm

Articles:
Read to Lead: How to Digest Books Above Your “Level,” probably not going to do everything that article says, but sounds like a very plausible task

Readings:
Thabiti Anyabwile points us to a very solid quote on reading by John Wesley (Pure Church)

Verses:
Acts 17:22-23
So Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said: “Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, ‘To the unknown god.’ What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you.”

Some of you may know that the studios have decided to put out Rambo IV, I little excited for it to come out. If you like those kind of movies check out the trailer (Warning: Very bloody), but what I wanted to point out was a line Rambo uses in the trailer. In one of those intense moments where the actor is suppose to say something memorable and deep, he says, “Live for nothing or die for something!” That quote instantly reminded me of what Paul said he found, “an altar with this inscription, ‘To the unknown god.” Growing up in the post-modern age, it’s fine whatever you believe, you believe and I cannot do anything about it but accept it. The culture tells you it is fine if you don’t agree as long as you believe in something, as long as you have a purpose. When did “finding a purpose” become the ends? As long as you die for “something,” whatever it may be, you are fine; as long as you are happy then that means you have succeeded in life.
