I Pledge Allegiance: What the Healing of the Blind Man Taught Me

I’ve read about the Messiah healing the blind man (John 9) many times. One of the big lessons I often take away from that is being an active participant in receiving our blessings. We can’t always sit idly by waiting for it. We have to accept it and do our part to fulfill it.  But, as I read through it yesterday I dug up something new.

This man spent his whole life hearing the words of others but having no eyewitness to their actions. He likely heard the Pharisees talk a good game on a regular basis, but when he could see, their words and actions didn’t align. The truth came out in what he saw not just what he heard. His healing became the start of a witch hunt. They preached about God, but really followed Moses.

Dear Transgender Man…

I would like to extend an invitation to you that I hope you’ll seriously consider. I’m sure it isn’t easy living your lifestyle, and I won’t claim to understand what it’s like. I’m sorry that people sometimes treat you badly because you are different than they are, or that you make choices they wouldn’t make. Here’s the invitation: come use the men’s bathroom.

Stop Waiting… (for the government to save us)

I’ve got some bad news for you about this election.  When it comes to fixing your life, it doesn’t matter who gets elected.  You better plan on doing it yourself.  The sooner you come to terms with that, the better.  Translation: if you’re broke before the election, there’s a good chance you’ll continue being broke after the election if you aren’t hustling and are being careless with your money.  No president, senator, or congressman is going to be able to save you from that.

With the 2016 presidential elections going on, much debate is currently swirling around the topic of whether or not to raise the current federal minimum wage standard.  Whenever I consider the question, my immediate response is not simply, “no”, but instead, “HECK NO”.  In fact, if I was in charge of passing legislation, I would abolish the minimum wage standard entirely.  Now stay with me…does this mean I don’t care about people who work 40 hours a week and are struggling to make ends meet?  Absolutely not.  Allow me to highlight some important key points to explain.
