Ministry of Correction

You know what they say, “there's no such thing as bad publicity.”

Last night at the NCAA Championship basketball game, there was interesting opening act.

A band you might know The Fray, performed the national anthem.  They had a hit Christian song several years ago called, "How to Save a Life".

I feel bad for the guys.  Today everyone is talking about the performance, and not in a nice way. I admit when I first heard it my eyebrows raised.

We are so quick to find fault with each other.  I call it the Ministry of Correction.

But we all mess up at our jobs, and it hurts when someone points it out. So thankful that God sees when I mess up, and loves me anyway.

Maybe we could just let each other off the hook more.

Be the Solution

Wonder if you did this too over the weekend.  Imagining what you would do with all that Mega Millions money.

The $640 million jackpot will be split by at least 3 winners.

Even with the split, they won’t ever have to worry about paying their mortgage again.

You might have issues with playing the lottery, I get that.  But, it is interesting to think with that kind of money the difference you could make.  You could pick a cause, and solve it. 

You could bring a village, a country clean water.

You could vaccinate a whole country of children from curable diseases.

I was thinking what cause I would pick.  I think I would buy houses for single moms.  To be their provider. 

Then I had a gut check.  What are you waiting for?  If I can pick a cause that I believe in now, and think oh I’d help that if I hat $640 million. 

Why not just help the cause now, with what I have.  You may not be able to be the whole solution, but you could be part of it.

What cause would you pick?
