Doing More

I was at a seminar recently when I heard one of the speakers tout the benefit of self-driving cars: so you can do more.  I got sick to my stomach.  Why? Because I don't want to do more!  I have enough "more" to do already!  Funny, Amy shared two news stories today.  One revealed that most Americans waste on average 5 hours at work doing nothing significant.  The other news story revealed that shorter work outs, as little as 4 minutes, are becoming popular because people say we just don't have enough time.  

So, we want self-driving cars so we can do more, yet we waste 5 hours at work doing nothing, but believe we don't have enough time to get in a decent work out.  We are a funny people.  

If one of the benefits of a self-driving car is "doing more" than how about we use this opportunity to "do less"?  If you're like me, your car is sometimes the one place you can find a little refuge, maybe even a little quiet time.  It's a prayer pod on wheels.  A mobile secret place to do more "less".  I say 'yes' to the self-driving car, but only if the 'yes' leads to less.

Chat With Max Lucado

Had a quick chat with Max Lucado today.  Simply asked him how we go about on a day like 9/11.  Here are a couple of quotes from him:

*"We should always pause on 9/11 and give thanks for those who sacrificed so much for our safety. This is a difficult world in which we live and the ultimate solution is to turn our hearts toward God. He is the ultimate refuge."

*"Jesus said that in this world we would have tribulation, but be of good cheer for He overcame the world. We can't give in to despair. We can't give in to cynicism. Whatever the situation is, He'll walk us through it."
