SCRIPTURE

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

~Matthew 6:33, NLT

QUOTE

Wisdom begins with seeing things from God’s perspective.

~Yaakov

my thoughts red

Perspective is the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance to other things. I took a day off to spend time with some friends that I rarely get to see. We enjoyed some great fellowship, some delicious food and a rather less than spectacular college football game. I want you to note the order: FRIENDS, fellowship, food and football. I will take friends over football any day of the week. What I would really like to see is a REVIVAL. I will take REVIVAL over a National Championship. I have some friends who are not Christians and I would take their salvation over all the football in the world and in the long run, I would have no regrets for doing so. It is a matter of perspective. Could I be saying this because my team got beat? I could but don’t so. Time will tell!

Perplexing Questions

  1. Why do people go to football games to drink?
  2. Would it not be more convenient to drink at home where can throw up in your own commode.
  3. Why do grown men wear red pants, a checkered red and white coat with red shirt and white bow tie?
  4. Why do men wear bow ties period?
  5. Why do the tickets cost $75 and you have less than 16 inches of bleacher space to sit on? For $75 you should get a recliner. They have better seats in Theaters and it cost a lot less than $75.
  6. How hard is it to go into the stadium, sit down and stay there until the game is over?
  7. How is it that football fans are not only willing but cheerfully so to walk over a mile to the stadium because no parking is available around the stadium and they would not walk a fourth of that distance to church without heavy complaints?
  8. If football is no longer entertaining, why should you go?
  9. Why will there not be football in heaven? Because football is a win/lose and there will be no losing in heaven.
  10. Why are my question freaking you out? Because you are young and don’t know any better. You’ll get it one of these days. Some things just take time.
