I’m in Guatemala this week, building homes and handing out shoes with a group from my church. So, this week I won’t post any long detailed incredibly insightful (ok, maybe I’m going overboard) posts. I’ll simply post a few interesting quotes I’ve read over the past couple weeks, following with a bit of reflection.
“Most Christians would rather die than think – in fact, they do.” – Bertrand Russell
Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Meaning, it’s easy to get caught in the current of life and miss life. It’s easy not to think, to let the blab of television, radio, and this blog, all fill your mind. Stop, turn it off, all of it, and think. Examine your life, and you’ll find places where life ceases to exist. Only then can you begin to allow the grace and wisdom of God to fill those places and create a new bloom.
