What Would YOU Do?

Alright, I know your time is limited. So is mine.

I know there is only so much you can read. Me too.

Yet, I think this is worth a read.

Why?

Because I want to try something different. At least, different from the blogs I usually read.

I am obsessed with understanding more of what Jesus meant when He said that His followers are the salt of the earth. I am salt? I want to know more fully just what that means. And…I want to share those discoveries with you. Hence, this blog.

But I want to provide a blog that doesn’t merely provide good information. There are plenty of those out in cyberspace. I know; I clip them and save them as files in Evernote for use later on with various projects.

I want to provide a blog that will make you think. Not just think about a statement I make, or someone else makes. Again, there are plenty of great writers who already share more wisdom than I can process in my little bitty brain.

There is plenty of good material available that will help us to look at life through the lens of Scripture. One of the best resources available today is a new book written by my dear friend, Jim Garlow, with help by three other friends, Audrea Taylor, Frank Kacer, and Gary Cass. The book is titles Well-Versed: Biblical Answers to Today’s Tough Issues. It’s published by Regency Faith, a branch of Salem Media Group, and you can pick up your copy at jimgarlow.com. I strongly suggest you order your copy (after you read my post, of course); in fact, it should be required reading.

But here is what I propose to do with this blog:

I will be posting various situations that you and I face in the course of living our lives on this earth, situations that bring us face to face with difficult choices and decisions. The decisions may be difficult because they’re unpopular. They may be hard because they’re costly. They may be hard because they “out” us as a follower of Jesus.

They may also be hard because we honestly don’t know the answers.

In my next post, I am going to share some steps to take in order to assess those situations and arrive at the best option as to how to address the situation.

In the meantime, would you do me a favor?

Think of those hard life situations: situations at work, at home, in business, at church, government issues…things like that. Share a brief summary of that difficult situation in the comment section below, and I’ll work it into a situation where we can discuss the various options, including the best option.
