The goal is not to figure out a way to avoid pain. The goal is obedience and to submit our rebellious nature to the Lord.

He lied!

Many radio sports talk show hosts and ESPN analysts have tried to understand why such a gifted athlete would tell such a lie. As of this writing Josh Shaw has not provided his own answer to this quandary but the basic answer is “we all lie.”

The Best Team

The Memphis Grizzlies are the best team in the NBA. I didn’t say they were the most talented, elite, super starred dynasty team. I said they are the best team because they exhibit the qualities that are needed to function as a successful team or unit. The adjectives that could best describe the Grizzlies are […]
