Different people like to travel in different ways. When we travel on vacation, my wife and I like to have a plan. We like to have reservations and a schedule. We like to know our itinerary so we can read in the guidebook about the places we're going to visit.
My wife's parents aren't like that. They like to just pick up and go. No reservations, no schedule and no itinerary. They like to learn about a place when they get there.
For my wife and I, the thought of traveling like that is no fun at all, but my in-laws would travel no other way.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
