These Are the Glory Days: We Were Made for This!

The King James Version puts it this way:

Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this. – Ecclesiastes 7:10 

The New Living Translation is a little more succinct:

Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise. – Ecclesiastes 7:10 NLT

Either way, the point is the same: There are dangers inherent to longing for what was instead of dealing with today.

Below is a link to the sermon I preached last Sunday morning. I hope it encourages you.

Wisdom from Williams

Walter E. Williams, Professor of Economics, George Mason University

“There’s such a broad ignorance or contempt for constitutional principles among the American people that any politician who bore truth, faith and allegiance to the Constitution would commit political suicide.” – Walter E. Williams, Is It Permissible? 2005

Vizzini Says

This morning, after reading a response to a comment I left in regard to a post from a wonderful young blogger, I created the following meme (or as someone I know calls it, a “mee mee”).

You can go visit Courtney at 1 Timothy 4:12 Girl and share some encouragement – she’s obviously been missing out on some things.

Anybody got a DVD you could mail her?

Thanks 🙂

A Daughter’s Wisdom

Some of you may still be unaware of the work I do on my other blog, ProverbialThought.com. It’s one that I share with several other gifted authors who love the Lord.

If you are unfamiliar with Proverbial Thought, then I guess it’s possible you could be unaware that my middle daughter, Katie Marie, is also a wonderful writer (and singer, and songwriter, and photographer).

That is why I would really appreciate you taking a look at the post she just published today on Proverbial Thought. It is her first post there since we finished up the original study a couple of years ago.

Here is a link to her post, “The Preciousness of Wisdom.” Why not check it out and let her know what you think? I know she would appreciate it.

Then, make sure to visit HER blog, Shutter Elf.

A Thought for Thursday

Why do we ever treat any day like it’s “just another day”? This day was created by God as a unique, one-of-a-kind event never to be repeated, and possibly our last. Would you treat your last day as any other day?

Thursday Thought

The odds of finding a needle in a haystack are against the one searching for it. But tell a man there actually is a needle (or possibly a few) in the haystack he’s about to jump into, and one of two things will probably happen: he’ll either recalculate the odds, or proceed like a fool.

Can you think of real-life examples?
