So This is what the Pot said to the Kettle

Here we have Keith Olbermann (the pot) calling various Republicans (the kettle) black. I laughed and laughed as I watched this. The self-righteousness of Olbermann blinding him from the reality that he was doing the very same thing he was criticizing the Republicans for doing. Maybe if I paid attention more to the liberal media I would find this whole election process far more entertaining.

Let me explain to Mr. Olbermann why the liberal political class is anti-America: they don't follow the Constitution. Our country is falling down around us, and we totally ignore the foundation on which it is built. If that is not anti-America I don't know what is.

That being said the Republicans for all their talk about being pro-America and country first aren't any better. In fact under a Republican President we have seen the Constitution literally ignored and personal liberty taken away. The Republicans are just as anti-America as the Democrats, they just do it in a more Patriotic way.

The problem is that neither side realizes it. Why? They don't realize it because they are doing all of this for the common good; they tell themselves they are helping America. They have come to believe in the innate goodness of their agendas and policies. Neither party is out to destroy America, but that is what they are doing. We have to look no further than the economy to see this happening. Good intentions by politicians and political parties are not enough. Real hope for America is found in returning to the Constitution (plus, it wouldn't hurt for the Church to actually be the Church).

Prayer: Married Bedtime Prayer

My wife Jenny and I have been using the Bedtime Prayer that John Eldredge wrote for Walking with God as part of our bedtime routine.  As much as I have enjoyed the prayer I thought it was time for a prayer that was better suited to pray together.  Hopefully this will encourage you to implement prayer into your bedtime routine.

Our Father in Heaven, we pause at the end of this day to say thank You.  We give You thanks for the blessing of life, for the blessing of each other, for the blessing of family, and for the blessing of a home. You have richly blessed our lives. Restore us Father to Your Son Jesus.  He is the vine and we are the branches and He has become our source of life.  Open our hearts to receive the Holy Spirit's guidance, healing, and transformation.  May our lives and our marriage bear the fruit of the Spirit.  We surrender our lives and our marriage to You.  You have our bodies, possessions, and spirits; we give You our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.  We belon…

God Uses Unlikely People

One of the things that strike me about God is that the value society has given to people makes no difference to Him. In fact it seems that God would rather use the common, even the despised, people of the world to make a difference in this world. Consider Moses. God doesn’t use Moses when he is a prince of Egypt, but when he is a nomadic shepherd. Certainly God has used the rich and the powerful, but more often than not God has used the poor, sinful, and abused. God uses the unlikeliest people.

This reality comes our loud and clear at Christmas time. Think about the major characters of the Christmas story: Joseph who is a poor and scandalize carpenter, Mary who is a young and scandalized girl, Shepherds who are a bunch of untrustworthy characters. Only the Magi have credibility in society, but this diminishes in Jewish culture since these men were Gentiles. The most important event in the history of the world and God chooses people who are rejected and wouldn’t be believed by so…

Worship is a Lifestyle

"It's a lot easier to sing a song than it is to stop and touch the broken. It's a lot less taxing to go to church than to take 'church' to the world. But sharing with others is a sacrifice of worship that makes God smile." ~ Louie Giglio; The Air I Breathe

Worship isn't just about music. Worship isn't just an activity that is planned and programmed. Worship is about glorifying God with our lives. When we seek to honor God, we worship Him.

Worship happens anytime and anyplace. It happens Sunday mornings at church. It happens Wednesday night at Bible Study. It happens when we chat with our neighbor. It happens when we serve those in need. It happens when we show love to the lonely. Worship is what being a Christian is all about.

Worship is a life lived in response to God's gracious blessings. God has given us so much. We owe Him every breath we breathe. He is responsible for our talents we use. God has given us blessing after blessing. Only a life o…
