All the planets of your life—your sexuality and desires, your commitments and beliefs, your aspirations and dreams, your attitudes and convictions, your habits and disciplines, your solitude and relationships, your labor and leisure, your thinking and feeling—all the planets of your life are held in orbit by the greatness and gravity and blazing brightness of the supremacy of Jesus Christ at the center of your life. And if he ceases to be the bright, blazing, satisfying beauty at the center of your life, the planets will fly into confusion, and a hundred things will be out of control, and sooner or later they will crash into destruction.

John Piper

This is a great statement.  

So many people today choose one thing and reject the results as if it wasn’t what they expected.  Fits perfectly with the entitlement mentality that is destroying our country and society.  If you refuse to find work that you need to pay your the bills then you shouldn’t receive hand outs from anyone – especially from the government.

Personal responsibility is the antithesis of the entitlement mentality.

Absolutely DISGUSTING

There are alot of TV shows that I don’t like because they’re crude, crass, violent, highly sexualized and so on… but I don’t think there’s any other show that is so revolting to me than “Sister Wives” on TLC.  

DISGUSTING.  Makes my skin crawl…
