Above All Else, Possess This

Another passage that I love is from Proverbs 4. The author says this: 'The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.' Such simple instruction yet so profound. Thomas Brooks in his opening comments in Precious Remedies is saying something like what we see here in Proverbs 4. Above all else get truth yet this is not a truth in the sense of just going out and reading a lot, this is truth that has feet.

Living Our Theology

Martin Luther once made a provocative statement: We are all called theologians, just as [we are] all [called] Christians. Luther's point is that everything we do speaks to what we believe about God. Our lives show forth who we think the God we worship is like. How do we know God? Does God care for us? Can God be trusted? Is God good? All of these questions are answered in the way we live. We are all called theologians just as we are all called Christians. There is no getting around it, we all do theology.

Running from the Past

So, we moved to Edinburgh about a week ago now. The city is amazing. I have loved the fact that I can walk pretty much anywhere. Great coffee shops abound (even though right now I find myself in a Starbucks... free internet is free internet). Taryn and I have explored the city a little bit as we search for a place to live.
