Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. –Ephesians 5:15-16This morning I was in a hurry to get to work, but because of my empty stomach I decided to stop at Chick-fil-A. While I waited in the drive thru line, my mind was racing with my schedule for the day and projects I need to get accomplished.
CIU Is Different
Have you ever tasted something gross? A strange foreign food? Your mom’s cooking? A friend’s concoction that tasted like a science experiment gone horribly wrong? Maybe this gross food made you shriek, “EWW! Yuck! That’s the GROSSEST pancake I’ve ever tasted!” and that was after YOU cooked the food!
Lately, I've seen this phrase along with some others about "happiness".
I have been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting on my life lately. The primary reason for this, I believe, is the fact that I will be a married man in two weeks and one half weeks from now (Yay!). My life is going to be a lot different, so I suppose I have been reflecting on the significance of it. Obviously this life is significant, given the fact that we are here (on earth). But why?
I’m doing this list because I’m trying to look at what I DO have, instead of envying what others have.
I have a God that loves me, no matter how bad I mess up.
Okay, so I'm not here to talk about who I think is going to win and lose or what team is better. (Just look at my Facebook and you'll figure it out pretty quick!)
Imagine a world without questions. What if we were only able to give commands, statements, or answers? No more marriage proposals. You want to ask how your friend is doing? Forget about it. Curiosity is extinct. Tests, teachers, and tutors are a thing of the past. No one can creep out of ignorance. A world without questions would be horrible. Questions are important. They help us discover the right answers.
