Sluggard or Plow?

RealchalkboardHD_picture

 

Proverbs 20:4  Sluggards do not plow in season;
    so at harvest time they look but find nothing.

sluggard

noun slug·gard \ ˈslə-gərd \

: a habitually lazy person

Just saying this word aloud kind of makes you know the definition without knowing the definition, right?
For certain it sounds like something you do not wish to be called,

CHALK TALK 3.3

Hebrews 10:24
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds

I try to run daily.
Running has always been a time of listening to music, podcast, Louis L’amour books, prayer and self reflection.
The other day I was about to run and noticed a rubber/silicone bracelet my friends at my local bike shop (Robins Bikes and Fittness )had given me honoring their friend who had suddenly passed.

What Do You Want?

chalk talk what do people want

What do you want?

What do you really want?
Where is it your thoughts first turn too when asked this question?
Material things? Money? Boyfriend, Girlfriend? Starting position, undefeated season? Your child to start, play, score, win?

What if you ask yourself this question; What is it that satisfies you?
Does anything really satisfy you?  IF SO… for how long?  Does it fade? Does it depend upon others…

Aright… bring it in, listen up.

Let’s say you stayed out too late the night before the game.
Let’s say you didn’t do your homework, you didn’t study and you flunked a test that you needed to pass to make the grade to;
A. Stay in school
B. Remain eligible to participate in your sport.

Let’s say you skipped practice, you said something ugly to your coach, you reacted poorly to someone..

All right… Bring it in and listen up.
Take a break, relax… In fact let’s say for the sake of this blog post… your practice is over and I want to give you some things to do at home that might give you some perspective on why we do what we do!
How about a Chalk Talk on watching TV?
I would imagine most that read The Chalk Talk Blog Post have spent at least a fair amount of time watching ESPN.
