So true

The world is a dangerous place,not because of those who do evil,but because of those who look on and do nothing.
- Albert Einstein

I love my wife

I think that marriage is probably one of the hardest relationships that we will ever have in life. Marriage is tough, there are times that it is so hard and you think: "can I keep doing this?"
The answer is: "YES". God loves marriage. God created marriage to be a wonderful thing, He created it to help us!!!
The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Gen 2:18
The sad thing is that we, sinful humans, are the ones that have messed up God's original design so badly. I imagine that it hurts God so bad.
Today I want to challenge you to seek God's plan for your marriage. Love your spouse like God loves you. Put them before yourself. Buy them a gift, show them that you love them. What if today was the last day you could show them your love, what would you do...
Do that!
I put a picture of Charity and I up here in Hawaii on the North Shore. My wife went surfing on the North Shore that day and I am so proud of her!

I miss Hawaii

About two weeks ago Charity and I had the blessing of going to Hawaii.

Today I am sitting in my living room, on memorial day, finishing an Ordination paper. I wish I was back in Hawaii. Charity and I were able to sit on the beach, swim with turtles and most importantly hang out with old friends. I will write more about this later, I just needed a 30 second vacation to look at my pics again.

School is almost over. In about one month there will be thousands of kids that are out of school. They will be moving into the job place, they will be getting out of there homes and starting a new point in life. I often wonder things like: where these kids fit in? and Who do they have to look up to when times get tough?

My heart contiuneally breaks because I will be graduating some of these kids. On May 30th we are having our senior grad banquet and sending these guys into the real world. Did we train them right? Did we teach them how to live a God honoring life? Did we show them we care? Were we there for them? Did we model what we say?

Just some food for thought on what goes through my mind.

Who will you be like?

Yesterday I was reading in my Bible about the kings of Israel (actually the king of Judah). I came to one of the last kings and reading about his life. Usaully you read that the man continued in the sin of his father and lead Israel incoreectly, it makes me sad. Then I came to read about a man named Josiah.
Josiah changed that pattern. Josiah lead Judah in the correct way. He tore down all the shrines and prostitue places. He removed all the false Gods from the Temple of the Lord. This dude was gnarly. He killed all the spiritualists and the mediums. He did what God wanted. Now I am not sugesting that you go and kill people and tear down places, but where is your passion for the Lord?
Are you following the sin of you fathers or making a choice to follow the plan of the Lord?

2 Kings 23:24-25
24 Furthermore, Josiah got rid of the mediums and spiritists, the household gods, the idols and all the other detestable things seen in Judah and Jerusalem. This he did to fulfill the requirements of the law written in the book that Hilkiah the priest had discovered in the temple of the LORD. 25 Neither before nor after Josiah was there a king like him who turned to the LORD as he did — with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength, in accordance with all the Law of Moses.
