Quote of the day - [In class, we were talking about how Jesus is preparing a place for us in heaven, and one of my third graders, with finger pointed in the air for emphasis, said....] "Jesus is building us houses, not apartments!"
Where did the blog name come from? While listening to the radio, I heard Dr. Tony Evans use an illustration about high jumpers and pole vaulters. Olympic high jumpers set records clearing 9 feet, while Olympic pole vaulters set records of over 19 feet. Why the drastic difference? The high jumper is doing the best he can with what he has in his own strength; the pole vaulter is also doing the best he can but is leaning on something else to accomplish the otherwise impossible feat! Dr. Evans drew a parallel to the Christian walk. What could we accomplish if we would fully lean on the Lord rather than our own strength? It brings new meaning to Prov. 3:5-6!
