What Are You Going to Do Tomorrow?

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”–Henry Ford.

“It ain’t over till it’s over”–Yogi Berra.

“Hope is one of the Theological virtues. This means that a continual look forward to the eternal world is not (as some modern people think) a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do. It does not mean that we leave the present world as it is. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. The Apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English Evangelicals who abolished the Slave Trade, all left their mark on Earth, precisely because their minds were occupied with Heaven. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in’; aim at earth and you will get neither”–C.S. Lewis.

“The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives.  It’s all part of taking a chance and expanding man’s horizons.  The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.  The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and we’ll continue to follow them”–Ronald Reagan.

    It was also Christians who courageously confronted and largely overcame racial inequality and segregation in the Civil Rights movement. They did so under the threat of death for themselves and their families. Those who disparage the Christian faith are blind to historical truth. Every person on earth benefits directly or indirectly from the influence of Jesus, whether they realize it or not.
