Let your moral conscience guide you

Let your moral conscience guide you

Over the last several days there have been many deep, soul-searching dialogues and conversations concerning President Obama’s statement that “he” has evolved to assuming the position of recognizing same-sex marriage.  He announced that after prayerful meditations, meaningful conversations with numerous friends and colleagues who are homosexuals; and thoughtful, inspiring discussions within his family “he” has come to realize the value and importance of all human beings (i.e. American citizens) whom he took an oath to serve as their president.

Man Talk: What makes a man good?

Everyone seems to be looking for a few good men. What makes a man good? There was a rich man in the Bible who desired to be good enough to be accepted into God’s kingdom. From the time he was a child, he kept all of the commandments. He came to Jesus seeking to know what he needed to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus told to him to sell all he had and give the money to the poor. The young man, surprised by Jesus response, sadly turned and walked away unwilling to submit to the request. This young man believed in his heart that he had done more than enough to (make it in.) Because he was his own standard, he refused to do more.

Gone to Ghana – Over the rainbow

Gone to Ghana – Over the rainbow

The other day in my internet browsing I ran across an article entitled, “Nineteen Things All High School Students Should Know.” Of course, with the economy being bad, most of the facts were focused on the financial burden of getting a college education— no surprise there.  I think most Americans are aware of the fact that the cost of college education has gone up dramatically in the past decade. However, the reason I really found this article relevant is because it discussed the reality of college graduates that refuse to think outside of the box.

Man Talk: Truth: the ounce of prevention

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Henry de Bracton's De Legibus (c. 1240).  This proverb has been around for hundreds of years and is still true today. The proverb speaks to doing things now that will have positive future impact. The little things we do up front can have monumental impact down the road. The ounce of prevention involves truth and advance knowledge, and it is the reason why we get polo or flu shots. In this application, prevention will be more powerful than the cure because it has the potential to make the cure unnecessary.

Memorial Day means gardening for many

Memorial Day means gardening for many

Get out the shovel and trowels – its Memorial Day weekend and that means gardening for many.  Spend a bit more time getting your garden off to a good start and reap the benefits all season long.  Proper planting and post planting care means less maintenance, fewer pests and more produce and beautiful flowers in your landscape.

Start by selecting healthy plants free of insect and disease problems.  There’s no need to spend money on problems.  And keep in mind that bigger is not always better.  Instead look for compact plants with sturdy stems.  The leaves should be deep green or the proper color for that variety.  Avoid plants that show signs of stress such as spots, brown leaf edges, and holes.  And when all things are equal, purchase the perennials with multiple stems.

What does it mean to be humble?

"…And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8)

I few years ago, I participated in a Bible study at work that provided some wonderful insight on the topic of pride and humility. I have always been a person with a high sense of self esteem, and I believed that it was this confidence in self that allowed me to be successful in life. As I matured, I acknowledged that it was also my ego and pride that fueled me.
