God's Man | Tuesday Reading...

The Outcast @ The Anti-Jared Here, they see a pretty muscular man. It is confusing to them. I do not explain. I give them the Popeye "I am what I am." Most people just look. They think I am a little weird. They are wrong. I am a lot of weird. Who works out when there is free beer? Who eats salad when there is BBQ? Who has apples in his pockets? I do. Top 10 DIY Food Geek Projects @ LifeHacker The best-tasting food is the kind that comes from your own efforts, because victory tastes oh-so-sweet. Conquer KFC-style fried chicken, smoky barbecue, wood-fired pizza, five-minute bread, and other DIY delicacies with these great food-focused projects. Fact: Literally No One Would Pay To Use Twitter @ Gizmodo There may be plenty of ways for Twitter to make money, but it doesn't look like charging membership fees will be one of them: a recent survey showed that zero percent of users would pay for the service.

God's Man | Decision Making...

So I am reading through a book of scriptures that I got from Dave Ramsey's team called, "God's Word for your Every Need."  The scriptures are organized into categories and it is very quick refresher for me during my work day.  I am starting the section "What to Do When..."  It begins with the passage from Proverbs" Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.

God's Man | Do. IT. NOW!!!

I have this as my computer's desktop wallpaper. Your Future Self isn't any less likely to stop procrastinating than your Present Self. Stop trusting the future. Do it now. There is a very good reason why this is on my computer and in my face.  I'll get back to why in a minute.  I love words.  Especially older words that are not used as often.  When my wife and I were still dating she gave me the nickname Thesaurus Man.  Today in light of the reemergence of the word snookered, I have chosen to look at the word Sluggard.  The book of proverbs have several good descriptions of the Sluggard.  The Sluggard is someone who is lazy and does not prepare. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of …
