The Friday Bag #7

Fake Love, Fake War: Why So Many Men are Addicted to Internet Porn and Video Games“You know the guy I’m talking about. He spends hours into the night playing video games and surfing for pornography. He fears he’s a loser. And he has no idea just how much of a loser he is. For some time now, studies have shown us that porn and gaming can become compulsive and addicting. What we too often don’t recognize, though, is why.”

The Best Sermon I’ve Ever Heard on Marriage“My reaction to what the President said probably wasn t that different from yours. I thought that what he said was outrageous. I thought that citing Jesus as if He were in support of sexual immorality was blasphemous. But I also thought, there s really nothing new here.”

Difficult Topics: A Love-Centered Way to Approach and Broach Them All“This method handles just about everything that s hard to talk about and can be used for small, medium, large, and even huge, difficult topics.”

I think leadership comes from integrity that you do whatever you ask others to do.  I think there are non-obvious ways to lead. Just by providing a good example as a parent, a friend, a neighbor makes it possible for other people to see better ways to do things.  Leadership does not need to be a dramatic, fist in the air and trumpets blaring, activity.
