Even the Simple Things

“An understanding that even the simple things we do behind closed doors impact the lives of others.” (“Kindness Boomerang: How to Save the World (and Yourself) Through 365 Daily Acts” by Orly Wahba)

This is a massive statement. My character is everything. My integrity means infinitely more than I can ever imagine. Even the simple things…like our thoughts, our motivations, our desires – the things we would consider to be so small are so monumental according to our Father in Heaven. It all matters.

I’m more convinced of this today as a husband and father of two than I ever have been. I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit who convicts when necessary and comforts constantly. I’m thankful for the Son, Jesus, who is an ever present reminder that the right choice can be made no matter what, and I’m ultimately thankful for a Father who never stopped chasing His children, even when they were at their worst.

“Because of my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.” – Psalm‬ ‭41:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

2 Reasons NOT to Watch Game Of Thrones

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “Game Of Thrones”, a popular TV show airing on HBO for the last several years. The series seems to be reaching it’s conclusion with a MASSIVE fan base to go along with it.

Let me be clear: I’ve never watched the show personally. Nor would I ever watch it. Why?

From the reviews I’ve read, GOT has some of the most hardcore, outrageous sexually explicit content on air today. For this reason alone I refuse to watch it. Why would I ever want to compromise character, integrity, morals, & convictions simply because of the “story” or “adventure” this show takes you through???

I really appreciatewhat spaker, blogger, and podcaster Matt Fradd has to say about this show in offering two reasons NOT to watch Game Of Thrones! Hope it’s encouraging to you too.
