1. Make it fun – I love fast songs fun songs, we have done “The Roundup” for over 10 years and our kids still love it. The round-up has nothing to do with Jesus it’s just fun. I try to be the best father I can yet I make mistakes our Father in heaven is perfect. If I delight in the sound of my kids having a good time laughing and playing in the next room, imagine how our Father in heaven delights over us. Our father in heaven delights in us when we are simply having fun.

A couple of weeks ago I was preparing a message for our church. I have always used Logos as a resource rather than a tool. In my study I would look up a passage in a commentary I own. The ability to search those commentaries and cut and paste into my notes was so helpful. I am always so amazed how quick I have all the information I need. I remember how tedious it was in Bible College working through books to look up the meaning of the word. We are truly spoiled today. The problem we face today is not having the time to search for the information we need. The problem we have today is having a tool that is powerful enough to aggregate great content. This is essentially what Logos does. It data mines content you own and gives you what is most applicable helping you in terms of speed and focus.
