The Saturday Post(s)

urlLove is Not Open-Mindedness. A needed reminder. “As it’s been said, the opposite of love is not hate.  It is indifference. Love gets angry when the good of it’s beloved is threatened.”

Perfect Love Requires Perfect Hate. “My last resistance to the idea of God’s wrath was a casualty of the war in the former Yugoslavia, the region from which I come. According to some estimates, 200,000 people were killed and over 3,000,000 were displaced. My villages and cities were destroyed, my people shelled day in and day out, some of them brutalized beyond imagination, and I could not imagine God not being angry…”

Showered. “I had always imagined what (my baby shower) would be like. It looked very much like what I imagined except I always pictured myself at my shower with a big pregnant belly, and it was not there. I was wrestling with the attention being on me because this was far from being just about me. I felt silly because up to this point, aside from paperwork, emails, phone calls, check writing, and support I haven’t had much of a role in the life of this baby.  But I will. And that is what I had to keep reminding myself all that day.”

What the Gospel Does to Folks Who Eat People. I linked to this last week, but here it is again for those who missed it.

Husbands, Love Your Wives By Being the Bad Guy. Husbands and dads, read and heed.

Festering Wounds. I am convinced we need to be reminded of this every Sunday. “Are you angry with a brother? Offended at a sister? Are you avoiding her? We can be tempted to think that if we ignore anger, it will just go away. But it won’t. Like an untreated wound, it gets more infected if we fail to deal with it.”

The Inventor of the Jump Shot. This is the man who invented the jump shot, had a fruitful marriage lasting over 60 years, but what does he cherish most? Watch till the end and be encouraged.
