King of Convenience

As my friend Dave writes, convenience is rarely good for matters of the soul.

Sure, there are conveniences that allow me to spend more time with my family, more time in study, etc. Unfortunately, the freed-up time too often gets consumed by less noble enterprises.

But when it comes to the soul, I need more hardship, not less. Not because of some misguided asceticism, but because I need to remember the costliness of grace. So much convenience in our culture has borne some ugly and rotten fruit.

  1. Speaking of–ever thought about offering preset, multiple-choice comments? Sure would save a lot of time AND brain power I need for Halo 3. And you might also consider putting the comments right there on the main page so I don’t have to wait for another page to load. Thanks.

  2. There’s a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
    There’s a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
    There’s a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
    There’s a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

    King of pain
