which means today is the last day of summer. Seems like I ought to go get a snow cone or something to mark summer's passing.
On another note, the very rich and famous Warren Buffett was (is?) very insecure. I think this is interesting. There's a new book that will be out soon called, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, by Alice Schroeder. It's his authorized biography. USA TODAY had this as the title of their article about it: "Buffett's authorized biography reveals insecurity". It goes on to tell of his extreme self-doubt all through his life. Click HERE for the article.
When I've read about other celebrities, like Paul McCartney, and Elvis, and others, threads of insecurity ring throughout their stories.
It just confirms the fact that we all need a savior.
I know I do . . . and am so glad to have one.
With some folks that would sound pious. . . to say that I have the Savior and you better get him, too,- or else.
Lately I've read more of how we as Christians sound to unbelievers. And that our 'pontificating' that Jesus is the only way, turns them off.
I try to be so careful. Too careful, really. . . that I end up not saying anything.
Lately, I've wanted to talk, though.
But I want to get it just right.
But I'm not perfect.
I know, to say that 'I have the answer', might offend some.
But, golly gee, if I didn't think I had the answer why on earth would I follow it? Why on earth would I surrender my will to something I'm not sure about?
Oh, of course, there may be doubts. I've had my share, for sure. But the older I get and the longer I walk with Christ, the more I KNOW he is real.
The more I hear of every folk - the Warren Buffetts of the world, the Amy Winehouses, the Vladimir Putins, the Linday Lohans, etc., ETC., the more I see that every folk is just a broken so-and-so, who needs rescuing, who needs a Savior.
The Bible is so relevant today.
I could keep preaching . . . but I need to go.
