People ask variations of the following question fairly frequently:
Could you please explain the Trinity in a way that doesn’t make my head hurt?
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)
I should get this verse tattooed on my forehead so that every time I look in the mirror I’m reminded not to be a selfish moron.
If I’m absolutely honest, selfish ambition is what drives at least 98.3% of my activity at work. Waaaaaaaaay too often, I focus exclusively on what’s best for me. Not the company. Not my boss. Not my co-workers. Not our customers. Me. Me. Me.
Thank God for Jesus. He showed us a far better way …
Have you wished God a Happy Father’s Day?
Sound a little strange? It shouldn’t. The Bible paints a picture of God as the universe’s ultimate father. He loves us waaaaaaaaaay more than we could ever imagine and loves it when we love him back.
So, what kind of dad is our Heavenly Father? Here are just a few of the words used to describe him:
Look around you today.
See anyone who needs help? Pitch in.
See anyone who’s down? Lift ’em.
See anyone who’s tired, stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated and/or maxed out (in other words, 99.9999999% of the people in the world)? Love ’em.
