"According to the grace of God, given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw — each man’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what [Continue reading...]
I recently read an article about a public works official in India who was fired after not coming into work for twenty-four years, Shri A.K. Verma, an executive engineer with India's Central Public Works Department (CPWD), took an earned leave in December 1990 and never came back to work. Now, after 24 years and one month, he has been fired by the CPWD "for unauthorized absence from duty." Verma sought extensions of his initial leave, but they were not granted; however, he still refused [Continue reading...]

They multiplied, they [Continue reading...]

We have reached the last days of 2014, and of course, like every other blogger on the internet I'm taking a moment to go over posts that were the most impacting on my blog's followers, or that drove the most amount of traffic to my site.

Last year I started publishing Kindle books, and though I didn't continue to publish [Continue reading...]
For those of you who have similar taste in books as I do, here's a short list of the books that stick out in my memory after having read them this year. You may already know I read a lot. My "to read list" has over 600 books on it, and in my Kindle I've got an "anxious to read" list of those whittled down to 60 out of those. I'm always reading 8 or 9 books at a time, and only recently have shed any guilt that just because I start a book doesn't mean I have to read it, especially in lieu of how [Continue reading...]
