What a dummy...

Michael Phelp's image goes up in smoke

Here is my question for Phelps...
If you are going to smoke pot, why do it in public or where someone has a camera?
I am not in favor of you smoking pot, but I am just saying, you could have done it privately, saved your image, remained a role model, and saved your swimming career.
Where is the common sense?

Good but terrible freight news

So Yellow is going out of business.
This is good news for me and UPS Freight, as we will pick up a LOT of new business.
This is great news for me, because I will be back to a normal, regular, steady schedule. More hours and more money.

This is terrible news because of the economy. It is terrible also because our dock is already loaded and busy, there is no way we can support all of YELLOW's business. There simply is not enough room on the dock!
Another challenge will be the fact that we will be hiring newbies, so the dock will be flooded with more workers who do not know what they are doing, etc. But this will eventually not be a big problem.

Steelers

Great game huh? One of the closer Super Bowl games. It was fun to watch.
I've never been a Steelers fan and had no reason to root for them, so I did not.
I was really excited for about 2 minuets. But at least it was a good game.

Men: Dominating what mattters

Men:
Let us Dominate what matters!

We have become so good at dominating what does not matter:
1. Video games
2. Being lazy
3. Eating a lot of food
4. Showing off our "guns"
5. Beating each other up

But like I said none of this stuff really matters

What would it look like if we took control over the stuff that does matter:

Let's Dominate:
1. Our Spiritual lives
2. Assertiveness
3. Showing true Romance to our loved ones
4. Chores
5. Showing Real Love of Jesus


Something to think about

Being "Religious" is not enough

Being religious is not what gets us into Heaven.

Being "good" or "spiritual" are never going to be good enough.

In order to be saved you MUST be born again according to John. 3 verse 7. ( Especially in its full context, the entire chapter!)

In fact being religious is not what we are called to be.

The "good" will not outweigh the "bad"...because there will not be a "good and bad" balance beam in Heaven. Even if there was such a balance beam in Heaven the ONLY person who could reach God's standard would be Jesus. (Rom. 6:23, Romans 3:23) So if we were judged on being good or bad, heaven would be only be occupied by Jesus and God (and the Holy Spirit) but all in one - of you know what I mean.

Fortunately, Heaven is not for just Jesus and God has allowed ANYONE to call on the name of the Lord to be saved! (Rom. 10:9, 10, Rom. 8:8)

So Heaven is not for religious people. Heaven is for those who call on the Lord.

Religious people are the ones who called on Jesus to be Crucified. Religious people where opposed to Jesus, the Pharisees. Religious people have started wars.

We are not seeking to be religious. We are not called to be religious. Being Religious does not save.

But Chrsit does. And we are to seek Christ in a relationship, not a religion.
