Five (A Five Minute Friday Post)

Standard

tally_marks-five-bar_gate-svgWork, sleep, family, fitness, and friends.

Pick three.

Randy Zuckerburg’s famous tweet regarding the entrepreneur’s dilemma has been swirling my head like a ring of little blue birds.

Fitness got kicked to the curb some time ago.

But my mentor tells me that, “without being fit you’ll never have the energy to keep going.” So… maybe I need to rethink my choice.

Certainly can’t give up my family time.

Friends have carried me on their shoulders to the place where I am today.

Sleep… well… I’m sort of in love with sleep.

The result?

My plan?

I have no plan.

I have lists. Lots and lots of lists.

I have priorities. Writing will take precedence over washing dishes. If my filthy house offends you, please stay away until my success reaches the point where I can afford a maid. In fact, maybe you should stay away after that time, too. We clearly don’t have much in common.

I have values. My crying child gets my attention. Business can wait. Even the supposedly urgent stuff.

Most of all, I have a vision.

Not just a dream. Not a hope, or a wish, or even a goal.

I have a God-given vision and… you know… maybe, since I’m obviously just a limited, finite, flawed little creature, God will carry me forward to see it through as long as I don’t look away from where I’m going.

Theological Thursday – Is God Mad At Us? (Part Two)

Standard

MP900433113Read Part One, here.

Ezekiel, Chapter 7, is one of those passages where God is anything other than warm and fuzzy.  We are given a fairly gruesome picture of the wrath that is about to be poured out by a very angry God.

I don’t know why this passage, more than any other, struck a chord with me.  There are countless examples of similar warnings in the Old Testament.  One websites lists some 30+ examples of the wrath of God, often with tens of thousands of people being killed by God.

And yet when someone like Pat Robertson links a natural disaster, such as the earthquake in Haiti, to a human action, such as a “pact with the devil” we all raise up together against him.

“A loving God would never do such a thing!” We shout….
