Links of Interest for Today

I apologize — work has been occupying a great deal of my energy this past week, and I haven’t been able to devote much thought into enriching the blogosphere with scriptural insights and general witticism. Maybe soon. Maybe later. I don’t know.

Regardless of that, though, I have been keeping up on reading others’ blogs (’cause others rock!), and here are some links for you to enjoy the same, if you wish:

  • Third Annual Reminder: Boycott “Turkey Day” — No, this isn’t a call to boycott Thanksgiving; rather, it is a plea to Christians to avoid calling it “Turkey Day” and to embrace thankfulness as a necessary and overflowing part of life. If anything, visit for the great Spurgeon quote on ungratefulness!
  • Why Not Speed? (pt. 2) — Ms. Kiley gives her second and third reasons for obedience to the speed limit laws, and I find them to be good insights which aren’t often expressed nowadays, which is a shame. Watching that speedometer is definitely something I need more often to do…
  • The Theology of Employment — Work is a theological issue, and it has been since the beginning of man’s time on Earth. Joshua Hitchcock shares with us from the Scriptures why it is. Never forget 2 Thessalonians 3:10; if men are able to work but are unwilling to, they do not deserve to eat. Read through the comments as well for more insights; find out why you can and should be joyful (and unceasingly thankful) for your job!
  • I’ll conclude with a bit of shamelessness… My loverly wife has nominated my blog for “Best Religion Blog” in the Bloggers’ Choice Awards; would you mind taking a moment and voting for me? I would really appreciate it! And while you’re at it, stop on over at my wife’s site and then vote for her in the Best Photography Blog category!

  1. Thanks for the link to my post, Rick. And thanks also for the reminder not to call the holiday Turkey Day. I didn’t use to think that was a big deal (I was a little slow, I guess), but it eventually hit me that saying “Turkey Day” totally undermines the significance of the day.

  2. OK I am confused.. what is Turkey Day? and what day is the term replacing? Christmas? Thanksgiving? I followed the link and clearly the reader is expected to know.. but I dont!
