We had a couple of visitors in the backyard yesterday evening. The hens were a little curious but not too worried. I sat and watched these young rabbits eat a few minutes. They were eating whole clovers, grass, and a few weeds growing within my patio area. Which brought on an idea. I wonder how many rabbits I would need to keep my lawn mowed.
Sometimes people will ask how I know the Bible is truly inspired by God. But really I believe it would be harder to prove that it wasn’t inspired by God.
http://bible.com/111/2TI3.1 2 Timothy 3: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
When I thought about doing this blog thing it didn’t seem like it would be too hard. But, now that I am sitting here ready to post my first submission, it feels like the biggest decision I’ve had to make in a while. Probably since it is the first post and I’m nervous about who is going to laugh at me for thinking that anyone would care about a blog from an average guy like me. So, I’ll just do a short introduction. I’m an average guy. I live in the United States. A red-blooded American, born and raised in the South. I have a wife and two kids, a small flock of backyard chickens, and a love of college football. But, I am also a follower and believer in Jesus. This blog will be a small view into my thoughts and feelings about what is going on in life, in my country, my state, the world, and the spiritual battles that take place every day for everyman.
