Blog: Abuse of Freedom
As a Christian I take comfort in the fact that I'm called to freedom. As a Canadian I'm thankful that I live in a free country. Freedom is a wonderful thing that we dare not take for granted. But according to Galatians 5:13 freedom can be abused.

Man Takes to Social Media to warn of its Dangers
SATIRICAL PRESS - A certain man has committed to spending several hours every day working his various social media accounts to warn people of the dangers of spending too much time online. The man mainly uses Facebook and twitter to spread his message.
"It can almost become an obsession," he said, "and I feel it's my duty as a Christian to warn people about the consequences of becoming a web addict. Social media has its place. But you really have to limit the amount of time you spend surfing the net."
Through various blog posts and tweets the man encourages people to spend more time outdoors enjoying nature though he himself rarely sees the light of day.
"Get out and enjoy the sun," one of his posts reads. "UV rays are not as harmful as you think and there is such a thing as sunblock."
The man refused to discuss the actual amount of time he spends online with his "ministry to web addicts" but admitted that he hasn't had a quality conservation with his wife in several weeks, rarely sees his kids and that he purchased a full bottle of sunblock two months ago which remains unopened.
The man has developed several nervous twitches since beginning his ministry and is currently undergoing psychotherapy but said he's glad to sacrifice his own mental and emotional well-being for the benefit of others. "One day my wife and kids and a multitude of complete strangers will thank me. At least I hope they will," the man concluded with a nervous laugh.
The little boy was caught swearing by his teacher. "Tyson," she said, "you shouldn't use that kind of language. Where did you hear it?"
"My daddy said it," he responded.
"Well, that doesn't matter," she explained, "I don't want to hear that language in here again."
After a moment, she thought she said under her breath, "At least he doesn't know what it means..."
"I do, too," he said. "It means the car won't start."
"My poor friends, you are free—free as air. You can cast off the name of slave and trample upon it ... . Liberty is your birthright............
Let the world see that you merit [your freedom]. Don’t let your joy carry you into excesses. Learn the laws and obey them."
- Abraham Lincoln during the last days of the Civil War
"I know some of the richest men in America, and I know how miserable some of them are."
- Billy Graham
Thought for the day!
liberty + love = service to others
liberty - love = license to sin
Shooting for success in Parenting
The other day I shot my eight-year-old son in the face. Twice.
The first bullet struck him on the forehead. The second struck him on the cheek. Thankfully, he was wearing his goggles. Even more thankfully, I was firing from a Nerf Gun. Before you judge me I would ask you to consider the fact that playing Nerf Gun wars with an eight-year-old can be exceedingly fun.
Furthermore, I didn't mean to shoot him in the face, I was aiming for his upper body area, preferably the chest. You might rightly question the wisdom of playing any form of a gun game with a child. I've been told the same thing about wrestling with him. Or playing full body contact hockey in the basement. My experience is that ............
