Responding to a Fool

During an interaction online today, someone told me, “I’m really not interested in you responding to me.  I most likely won’t read it, so go ahead and save your time.”  In this case, there is really only one way I can respond:

Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you (Proverbs 9:8).

If you are the scoffer: Repent.  Be humble.  Be wise.  Don’t be puffed-up and foolish.  And if you are on the receiving end of such folly: Be discerning, knowing that reproof and correction will not always be helpful and sometimes, will even be counterproductive (see also Matt 7:6).

Internet Has Come to My “Flat”

Well, it took some time, but Telkom finally delivered ADSL to my apartment (they call it a “flat” here in SA).

All it took was two and a half hours of waiting, three trips to the Telkom store after the technician left my place, a bowl of cereal with curdled milk, and spilt beer on Rylan’s desk.

Anyway, I’m back online.  Let the blogging continue.

“Make Time” for Everything Else, Not the Bible

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard someone say, “I don’t make time to spend in the Word every day.”

God’s Word doesn’t go on a to-do list each day.  It is the list.  Perhaps we should “make time” for everything else we do on a daily basis instead of trying to make time for the most important thing.
