CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Capn crunch sent to me in a group text w a few others and really like it so I wanted to share the following ;

For a small amount of perspective at this moment, imagine you were an American born in 1900. When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years. Yes, 50 million.

When you’re 29, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, global GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33. The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet.

When you’re 41, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war and the Holocaust kills six million. At 52, the Korean War starts and five million perish.

At 64 the Vietnam War begins, and it doesn’t end for many years. Four million people die in that conflict. Approaching your 62nd birthday you have the Cuban Missile Crisis, a tipping point in the Cold War. Life on our planet, as we know it, could well have ended. Great leaders prevented that from happening.

As you turn 75, the Vietnam War finally ends. Think of everyone on the planet born in 1900. How do you survive all of that? A kid in 1985 didn’t think their 85 year old grandparent understood how hard school was. Yet those grandparents (and now great grandparents) survived through everything listed above.

Perspective is an amazing art. Let’s try and keep things in perspective. Let’s be smart, help each other out, and we will get through all of this. In the history of the world, there has never been a storm that lasted. This too, shall pass.

The Wise Man

People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke and everyone roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.

When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.

The wise man smiled and said:

“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”

Moral of the story:

Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The sweet spot is often utilized in business training sessions.  It is the area of intersections of three circles.  An example of the three circles might be 1.) What We Want, 2.) What They Want, and 3.) What We Can Do.  The sweet spot, where the three circles intersect, is the place of mutual benefit and capability for the parties.  There has been another example floating around lately.  It has to do with COVID 19.  The three circles are People taking COVID 19 seriously, People worried about expansion of authoritarian government policies, and People very concerned about impending economic devastation.  In this case the sweet spot is ME.  That is the place where I am during this time in history.  I don’t want to let any one of the circles to be bigger than the others and I want the sweet spot to be as big as possible.  I think all three issues are huge problems and all three need to be balanced in thought and efforts.  There certainly has been a lot of air time given to the treating this flu seriously as there is a lot of effort going toward opening up the economy.  An area that lagged the attention I believe it needed was the overstretch of government rules and regulations.  It has gained some steam with protesters showing up in various places around our country.

The three circles devoted to COVID 19 would get me on my pulpit in social media and I used to to make my point.  At least I did use it.  Not any more.  Now when I thing about it I think that Jesus is the one I should be concerned about.  I should not worry about government officials exerting too much on me.  I need to let Him exert His authority over my life.  Do I let His light shine on me, in me, and through me to others? That is what Jesus wants.  That needs to be all I want.
