My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

Beware Missile Messengers
When you’re close to bursting out and launching a text/twitter/facebook message that reads, “I can no longer remain silent!” or “I simply must comment on this news!” carefully consider what source is motivating your burgeoning burst: the wisdom of this world or the wisdom of God. The pressure to SAY SOMETHING, DARN IT might feel similar in both cases, but the difference is tremendous. The former is screwy to begin with, screwy in solution, and screwy in conclusion, while the latter (the gospel) is eternal to begin with, eternal in solution, and eternal in conclusion. If you care about how we think of you and your missile message, ask yourself, “Is this screwy or eternally based?” and proceed on course with your name on it. To be sure, there is room for both, but being aware of what is influencing you will help your launch control.
