Helicopters have been flying over our house today. I said to the girls " I wonder why there are so many helicopters flying over the house today." Jesslyn said, "It is probably helicopter day today." I love that answer. So simple. Makes me smile.
I will be finishing up my last podcast in Genesis today. Looking forward to getting into anther series.
I also just finished up my new John Piper book titled The Power of Words and the Wonder of God. Good read, particularly chapter 4 by Mark Driscoll. He wrote about the controversial words Jesus spoke..... for example:
"Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman without discretion." Proverbs 11:22
"Sometimes, God's rebuke is incredibly graphic. This is because bad things (like whoring) need bad words (like whoring) and not good words (like partner); otherwise people get confused, especially dumb sheep.' (p. 85)
I love this. I think we have become too influenced by our society of "keeping nice" and not wanting to offend. I also love that this is the chapter that they gave to Driscoll to write. Completely fitting.
