This past weekend the movie "War Room" was released and I greatly enjoyed watching it with my bride. It was our first "date night" since our kids moved to college.
This is an inspiring and encouraging movie that does credit to the Kendrick brothers' continuing legacy of family-friendly and faith-friendly films. I laughed, I cried, er, had some sinus trouble in the dusty theater. Two thumbs up!
Just because a movie is "faith-friendly", however, doesn't always mean it is 100% Biblically accurate. Before recommending it to others, I share a few items of concern that I think are worth mentioning.
I am a member of various online communities including the "Faith Driven Business" community on LinkedIn. A question was posed recently in the discussion forums:
Do you struggle with balancing wealth and humility?
And should we be? Steve Hoeft, the founder of Faith Driven Business, discusses his views on wealth and how to view money as a Christian entrepreneur. What he has to say may be surprising! Read and comment below! http://faithdrivenbusiness.com/7-reasons-why-god-wants-to-make-entrepreneurs-wealthy/
Here was my contribution to the conversation:
Tuesday morning. 7:20AM.
Traffic is really backed up on the off-ramp today.
Cars take turns: one car exits and one car enters and one car exits— until Red Suburban Man.
I exit... well, try to exit.
Red Suburban Man wants to skip common courtesy and
HEY! YOU ALMOST RAN INTO MY NEW CAR, YOU JERK!
My new car honks to let Red Suburban Man know his social skills need improvement.
A window rolls down and Red Suburban Man gives me two small gifts: the bird and a loud "F--- YOU!"
Like a scene from The Matrix, time... slows... to a sudden... crawl...
The other day my son texted me after one of his late-afternoon college classes:
Power went out at home. How do I reconnect Netflix on the TV?
Wrapping up at work now. Will fix it when I get home. 20 minutes.
Traffic was light and I got home quickly. My wife was running errands and wasn’t home yet but my son’s car was in its normal spot. As I walked into the house, however, things seemed anything but normal.
The shades were still drawn and the house was dark. School papers were scattered all over the kitchen.&nbs
