It’s no secret that ideas can change the world.
Ideas can move mountains, ideas can heal the sick; ideas can save lives, and ideas start wars; ideas can put you to sleep, and ideas can wake you up; ideas can build walls, and ideas can tear them down.
And it’s no secret that the greatest ideas are often the simplest.
Cliches are cliches for a reason, and that reason is: simplicity is power. The moment something becomes unnecessarily complex it’s vitality starts draining away.
So great ideas are, by their nature, often very simple.
But which of them are truly the most important?

A term that is often thrown around when someone is going through a storm, or is just complaining about their situation. Although the statement may be true, its intent is only to keep things in perspective. The fact that yes it could always be worse doesn’t make the situation your going through not bad. […]
9 As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. 10 And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples.11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples,“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”12 But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.13 Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” – Matthew 9v9-13
In this passage we catch Jesus doing Jesus-y things per usual. There’s that Jewish Rabbi breaking all historical, culural, and societal norms and boundaries again…

The first encounter of death I had was that of my grandfather when I was seven. I still can recall the ceremony before he was buried when some of us, his grandchildren were carried and passed over his coffin one by one. Someone on the other side of the coffin caught each one of us until everyone was over. I did not know why it was being done and I never bothered to ask anyone until now about the meaning of this ritual.
Then when I was around ten, I had a more profound encounter with death losing my Dad in a motorcycle accident. I remember when his lifeless body was brought in our house.

Recently, I was commenting on the MMSL Forum Men’s clothing thread about color analysis. Several men asked for more info, and so not to be too off-topic there, I’m posting it here. Welcome, MMSL friends! Readers who don’t know about Athol Kay and the MMSL forum, check it out for relationship advice and self-improvement tips.
This post will be the “elevator pitch” version of color analysis, aimed at men who want to look good but don’t want to bother much about clothes and shopping. I’ll include references at the end for anyone who wants to learn more.
28 December 2015: I’ve revised this post a bit to answer some questions, include better photos, and simplify the Find Your Colors section.
What is Color Analysis?
Ever notice that some people look great in some colors, but look awful in colors…

For quite a while my inner being has cringed during the times I hear Christians use the term “traditional marriage.” However, I have not been able to put my finger exactly on why, since I am a Christian who holds to the rich history of the reformation, and the sufficiency of Scripture. But lately, as […]
