At least, I think it’s Wednesday. Weeks that start with a holiday Monday always throw me into confusion about what day of the week it actually is. To me Mondays are days I have to go back towork. If I don’t have to work, then it’s not a Monday. Anyways….

Humbling: Following brutal attacks on a Christian church in Egypt on New Year’s Eve that killed 23 worshipers, moderate Muslims offered themselves as human shields to protect Coptic Christians at their Christmas Eve services. How many American Christians would do that for Muslims if roles were reversed, I wonder (Veterans Today)

Challenging: One pastor speaks up about how his church rejected the American dream and the trendy mega-church, bigger is better model to serve the poor in a radical way (CNN.com Belief Blog).

Convicting: The difference between an attempt at salvation through self-justification and God’s way of salvation where the only “self” is in “self-renunciation” (A Time to Think).

Inspiring: While not strictly a faith issue, I love Gretchen Rubin’s idea of choosing a word you want to define your year instead of traditional New Year’s resolutions. I think I’m going with “dare”, because fear keeps me from so many things and I want to dare to trust God completely, to share my faith, and to follow his dream for my life when it seems the most risky (The Happiness Project).

Advice I Wish We’d Had 7 Years Ago: Wise words on student loan debt and getting out of college with the minimum amount  possible. Sometimes it’s a necessary evil, but it’s still evil and important to gauge how much debt is really worth that degree (Christian Personal Finance).

I was sitting on twitter trying to find something to cure my boredom – and KA-CHOW – somebody I follow tweeted this post. Now, I am not quite as bored. Thanks for posting nice material. – Frisbee
