As the “dog days of summer” wind down and Fall makes it’s pathetic South Texas attempt to cool things off a bit, I was struck by the reading this morning.
What’s the big deal? Humility is the name of the game right?
Sure, but if you’re like us you’ve been burning through this Summer (and life) building, working, planning, etc. And I know many of you and your accomplishments are, well, monumental as I hope ours are.
As we succeed in life, it’s important to understand why.
1 Corinthians 3:5-7
What is Apollos, after all, and what is Paul? Ministers through whom you became believers, just as the Lord assigned each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God caused the growth. Therefore, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who causes the growth.
Don’t take yourself to seriously. Here’s some comedic relief to cool things off.

This is what happens when you get brush hands answering Dear Abby love letters:
Dear Reluck: Shiny’s always good. Besides, Modesto ain’t that big.
Dear Timorous: Make sure he gets one with four-wheel-drive and the beer cooler attachment.
Dear Puzzled: Flip a coin and geld the one you keep.
Upon the corner stone we stand
brick and mortar in our hands.
And a life of time and insanity in mind.
True accomplishment never found
when mind of society’s ways is bound.
And the champion’s prize his insanity’s size.
Our prize fulfills the plan within
but not our own lest it be sin.
And the pride’s knife is just life.
