I’ll be the first to say that I think the BCS system stinks. It really annoys me. I’d love to see a playoff system. The last thing I want to see, however, is our government begin to legislate college football. Seriously guys, keep your hands off of it. If the government begins to get involved, we’re sure to have a bankrupt, boring, and even more shotty system. Way to go guys. Don’t you touch my college football though!!!

Senate Reviewing How College Football Picks No. 1


So, the government hands out these bailouts which no one really wanted, but lots of congress voted for. Then, companies use the money unwisely. Now, the government is a hero because it’s stepping in and putting their foot down to punish these extremely unwise and selfish companies.

So, who’s fault is it? The companies for using the money unwisely, or the government for giving the money to these companies in the first place?

Over the past few years the gospel has taken root in me like I never thought it could. I love it. It drives me, gives me passion, encourages me, strengthens me, and challenges me.

I copied this from John Piper this morning and can totally relate to it. As his title suggests, never let the gospel get smaller. You can read the whole post here:

‘The Gospel gets bigger when, in your heart,

grace gets bigger;
Christ gets greater;
his death gets more wonderful;
his resurrection gets more astonishing;
the work of the Spirit gets mightier;
the power of the gospel gets more pervasive;
its global extent gets wider;
your own sin gets uglier;
the devil gets more evil;
the gospel’s roots in eternity go deeper;
its connections with everything in the Bible and in the world get stronger;
and the magnitude of its celebration in eternity gets louder.
So keep this in mind: Never let the gospel get smaller in your heart.’

Is it growing in you? Never let it get smaller!!!

And, if you said, ‘holy crap, a blog post from Daniel?!?!’ I said the same thing 🙂
