Reflections on 9/11 Lessons...

Some random reflections and lessons learned on September 11...

From a sermon by Bryan Carter (pastor of Concord Church): Men need friends - someone ahead of them on life's journey; someone in the same or similar place as you along life's journey; someone to mentor along life's journey. I need to make more time for all three!

From a sermon by Larry James: When we say to God, 'Here Am I...' (Isaiah 6), God will say to us, 'Here I am...' (Isaiah 58) when we need him.

From several rememberances, documentaries and recountings of September 11, 2001: the most compelling aspects of this great tragedy are the triumphant struggles of the family members left behind who are gaining perspective and going on with their lives. We need to remember to pray for them!

 

From Serena Williams: Tough as it is, even champions need to bring their 'A' game every time - even if the next time is the next day! If you don't, you can't blame anyone else...

From Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: If you focus your resources on one opponent, you can defeat that one opponent. How that translates into continued victory remains to be seen...

From Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Jets: You just might prove every expert predicting your failure wrong...if you commit to playing the WHOLE GAME!

Something tells me that at least one or two of these lessons will be useful this week. I'm curious about which...
