Priorities

As best as I can tell, I haven't been using this blog for the glory and honor of God. Somewhere along the way, maybe from the beginning, my priorities were not set correctly; I've chosen entertainment and humor over more worthwhile messages.

I don't know what this means yet. I'm not going away, I'm not removing anything; I don't see any changes in my style just yet. I may have to start a separate blog (and yes, Jim, further crash the Internet). I just don't know.

What I need to do for now is to make sure that whatever I write here is in line with the principles of my faith: respecting others, not tearing anyone down (except myself), never putting up questionable or offensive material. This includes my attempts to make you smile or laugh (both of which are definitely good to do).

If this post makes no sense or seems to contradict itself, it's because I'm pretty much writing this on the fly. Do you know how hard it is to get a fly to stand still?

Stay tuned.

I think you've done a great job of letting people know what you believe, without alienating anyone. Sometimes it's the smallest gestures that mean the most.

Do what your conscience leads you to do. I love reading your thoughts. I haven't once thought they were out of line with your personal beliefs. Not too mention you make me laugh.

You know I am always so proud of you when you seek to move in the direction of glorifying God! I'm excited to see its what's on your mind.

Well, if they fly's too much of a hassle, do one of those writing-on-a-grain-of-rice things.

Those're more fashionable anyway.

I had the same problems. I intend to talk about God, but the politics of the day keep coming up. Hang in there, sometimes the most unrelated thing leads back to Christ. I've decided that my block is more about me learning than me teaching, or at least that seems to be what's happening.
