Intimacy or Familiarity—Tim Challies
Helpful perspective on Bible reading, related to my post on devos from last week, from Challies.
We like to believe what we believe, and to believe it all the way. We like to prefer what we prefer and to hold our preferences high above the alternatives. We sometimes find ourselves expressing our beliefs and preferences in off-handed little comments that seem so insignificant to us, but can hit another person with unexpected force.
Reading the Bible is something we all believe in. We know it is good and necessary to remain in God’s Word day-by-day. If we are to obey God, we must know who he is and what he commands, and if we are to know who he is and what he commands, we must hear him speak, and if we are to hear him speak, we must go to the one source where he has promised we can always hear from him. And so we develop that discipline of daily Bible reading.

Budweiser’s Awful Super Bowl Ad Is a Perfect Illustration of Why Young People Don’t Drink It—Jordan Weissmann
I tweeted about the irony of this during the game. This guy hits the nail on the head.
I do not consider this a ringing endorsement for the brand. And yet, it seems to be the best message Anheuser-Busch InBev was able to muster for the awful ad it ran during the Super Bowl, which proudly declared Bud a “macro beer”—you know, as opposed to those effete microbrews—and ribbed all those mustachioed hipsters who quaff delicate glasses of “pumpkin peach ale” and such. “It’s not brewed to be fussed over. It’s brewed for a crisp, smooth finish,” the ad tells us, adding, just in case we missed the point: “It’s brewed for drinking. Not dissecting.” Got it. Don’t think too hard about Budweiser. There’s not much going on.
I love Password, Catch Phrase, Heads Up, and all sorts of word-guessing games. This is funny.
