Mind – The Pentagon Athletic Club, or PAC, to those working inside “The Building” is the savior for operators used to getting things done. The slow grinding pace of staff work is definitely an endurance operation. Operators go through three phases while working on the staff: 1) optimism, 2) disbelief, and 3) pragmatism. Upon arrival on station you want to fix the things “The Staff” continually screws up. After about six months, just about when you start to figure things out, it is hard to believe getting something done is actually that difficult and takes that long. Finally, you accept the Building’s bureaucracy and consider yourself lucky if you can move the ball down the field on 3-4 major projects.
One might make a pretty good argument for that approach in our own lives. How often do we set the new years resolution to lose weight, eat better, work out more, drink less, read more books, make new friends, and become absolutely superhuman? I think a better approach might be start with one thing and turn it into a habit, like hitting the gym for three days a week minimum for a year, then move on to other stuff. Just a thought.

Spirit – The Love of God – Attributes of God by A.W. Pink
“God’s love is no mere amiable weakness, or effeminate softness. Scripture declares, ‘whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth’ (Heb. 12:6). God will not wink at sin, even in His own people. His love is pure, unmixed with any maudlin sentimentality.”
I think about this often when I screw something up. Just as we correct our children because we love them, God also corrects us.
