Excuses, Excuses

It’s Lighten up Monday! This is a short clip from my message on Moses and the burning bush, a fascinating look at all the excuses Moses made when God called him into action.

Please take the time to read Exodus 3 and 4. See if you can name the excuses Moses tried to use. I identify five of them in my video “A Wimpy Prophet, a Butane Bush and No Excuses.” We still use the same excuses today. Enjoy this clip and please share the DVD with your friends.

Those Two Little Words

Hey, Wake up! It’s Lighten Up Monday! Sometimes the behaviors that limit us are complex and require time and counseling to resolve. Other times we are just avoiding the obvious and prolonging the agony.

In those moments we need to follow the advice of Bob Newhart. This makes me laugh every time I watch it. It also makes me pull up my big boy pants and get on with life!

Pace Yourself

kd6.28.17In a long-distance race, it is important to pace yourself. I joined the track team in high school and trained to run 800 meters—about half a mile. On the day of an important track meet, I was ready to go.

This was a special day because my girlfriend was in the stands. I confess, I had never spoken to her, but I wished she was my girlfriend. And winning this race might have attracted her attention and her affection.
