stuff i say on twitter

I’ve had a Twitter account for a couple of years now. It is pretty active – I usually post something a couple of times every day. It is a good format for me because it doesn’t take long.  I can read good things from some people I admire and I can engage with them in brief conversations. I can also post s few of the thoughts I have on various topics.

I took a look through some recent postings over the last few weeks and thought I’d also share them here. Again, there is no connection between most of the stuff I say, henceforth, the randomness.

We can’t prevent natural disasters. We can prevent moral and ethical disasters. They are equally as devastating.

Why do some wives and husbands express so much love for each other on facebook? Don’t they ever talk face to face?

Religious freedom may not seem like a big deal to you. Ask the people in the Middle East if it would be a big deal to them.

Go – Be Strong – Rescue

“You have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” Augustine (Confessions)

Do the right thing, the right way, for the right reason long enough, and the right result will come.

in the end…God wins!

Happy 100th anniversary of International Womens Day!

Some days you’re the stick, some days you’re the piñata.

Sheen: “Not held hostage by AA anymore”.

Reading the OT law, before grace. If I’d been alive then, they would’ve had many reasons to stone me. Thk God for grace!

Charlie Sheen is only doing what millions of others would do if they had the money.

Church is like the dentist for some. Other than their annual check up, they’ll only go when they’re in pain.

The shrimp in my instant Noodle Bowl are the size of tiny worms. Hey, wait a second…

If you’re in full time ministry, apprx. how many hours per week do you work? DM me if you want to keep it private. Thx!

Met a pastor of a 206 y/o church that has never done missions work outside the US. How is that even possible?

Just met with a guy who, as a kid, was abused by a religious leader. Too many have been. One is too many.

“He (God) ensures that orphans and widows receive justice.” Deuteronomy 10:18 (NLT) Let’s join Him in that!

I just officiated the funeral of a person I’ve never met. It’s sad for anyone to die without a church family.

Me to God: “I want to be on the mountain top!” God to me: “You’d better get in shape. It’s gonna be a long, hard climb!”

If we are not careful, worship will become more about us than it is about Him.

Off to lead people into a worship experience. A great privilege!

If “it” (your passion) is going to get done, you’re going to have to do it.

When helping orphans, you need not worry about enabling them or them developing an entitlement mentality.

Heard someone say, “when I get rich, I’ll give to the church.” If you’re not giving now, you won’t then.

If we add enough value to people’s lives, we won’t have to beg them to listen to us.

One word of defamation can destroy 1000 words of affirmation. Choose your words carefully.

We may not like it but, where humans are involved, problems are unavoidable.
