PREPARATION

As heirs of the Protestant Reformation, we revel in God’s grace.  This is a good thing.  However, any good thing can become a bad thing if we forget other important truths.  We don’t have to work for our salvation, but we are to work it out (Phil 2:12,13).  It was the grace of God which motivated Paul to work hard (II Tim. 2:1-7).

Whenever I see someone going to great lengths to be the best they can be, I am humbled by Paul’s statement that many do it for a perishable wreath while we run for an imperishable one (I Cor. 9:24-27).  When I see someone giving intense effort and focus to something other than building up God’s kingdom I am humbled by my apathy.  Here is a good example of what intense focus looks like:

CONGRATULATIONS TO DAVID MOORE!

Our oldest son’s intramural basketball team won the championship at UT this summer.  This is the second team in three years that David has played on which won the championship. 

Human glory for winning includes a cool t-shirt and a picture on UT’s wall which has teams all the way back to the 1930s. 

DENVER WINS!

Denver: 28 

Seattle:17

Predicted wind gusts are held back and Payton gets to do his thing.  Interestingly, Manning does not get his rather regular 300 passing yards, but still makes 3 TDs via his arm.  I am tempted to say the fourth TD comes from Payton running it in himself which seems ludicrous, but let’s say he does for fun.  The Denver defense actually plays like the Seattle defense!
 
After the game, Richard Sherman says he is the worst CB in the league.
