After my recent accident, the insurance company gave me a rental car for a few days. Today, that time runs out, and I have to get serious about another car. I’ve been looking, but I have to be very careful right now for several reasons. One, of course, is that I want a decent car for a very little price. I plan on buying another older car that will last a year or two. So far, doing that has really helped out our budget.
Also, though, I have to be careful because of the recent flooding. Finding a used car isn’t hard, but I have to be careful that it’s not “too good to be true” with the price, and that the car isn’t really messed up from all the water.
It’ll all work out, though.
On to the links for the week:
1. Scott McCown is writing a series on the general topic of “ministry.” So far, the post I’ve liked the most, and the one that has a couple of interesting comments to peruse, too, is “What is Ministry?”
2. We have a policy for the Friday Links Roundup. If you mention “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase in a post, you’re in! (Okay, so that’s not actually a policy, but it sure gets my attention.) Neal Pollard uses some childhood wrestling memories to make a helpful point in “Mid South Wrestling.”
3. Finally, it’s been a little while since I linked to a financial article. If you read the blog often, you know that we are huge fans of Dave Ramsey and his Baby Steps. Bible Money Matters recently wrote a brief, but well-put article that you’ll enjoy. Here is “Why Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps Really Work.”
We hope you have a great weekend, and that you take the time to think about those who have died for our freedoms. Memorial Day is special, and we hope you’ll take at least a few moments to reflect.
We also hope you’ll take time on the Lord’s Day to remember and reflect on Christ. Don’t forget His Day.
