Thursday Thoughts: Vol 3 | Is 4

Pastor Steve shares these links to stimulate some Thursday Thoughts…

THE RACE … From Numberphile – a very interesting consideration of speed and the consequences of making your daily commute into a race. You can watch the video HERE.

THE CHALLENGE … from Daniel Ritchie – an outstanding expression of gratitude while living in the midst of incredible challenges. Daniel writes: “Take a step back for a moment and imagine that you were born without arms. You have to do everyday tasks with your feet. You write with your feet. You eat with your feet. You put gas in your car by lying down on the ground to lift the nozzle with your feet. You pay for a gallon of milk at the grocery store by carrying it to the checkout line with your teeth and then taking your debit card out of your shoe and swiping it through the credit card machine with your toes. That’s my life. You can read the rest HERE.

THE FINISH … from Grayson Pope – an important consideration for anyone who will one day face death … and that is everyone. Grayson writes: “Death might frighten us because it’s unknown—but it doesn’t have to. If we think about death often, and realize that to live is Christ and to die truly is gain, then we can live lives full of wisdom and godliness. We get to live for Christ today, and we gain him even more if we die tomorrow. Each of us will stand before God one day to give an account of our lives (2 Cor. 5:10). Don’t let that day be the first you’ve thought about death. You can read the rest HERE.
