The following is taken from http://freedomist.com/2010/10/22/obama-has-no-problem-with-chavez-developing-nukes-obama-watch/
Chavez’s closest Russian associate is Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin, a raving anti-American with rumored ties to illegal arms dealer Viktor Bout.
Obama, who wants America to divest itself of its entire nuclear arsenal, issued this Carteresque statement:
We have no incentive or interest in increasing friction between Venezuela and the U.S., but we do think Venezuela needs to act responsibly. Our attitude is that Venezuela has rights to peacefully develop nuclear power.
I'm sorry, but you don't answer a bully with passivity. Chavez is one guy you don't want to mess with and his track record tells us that he doesn't play well with others... unless they hate America too. I have been to and have family in Venezuela. I know what the people endure so their dictator can live like a king.
Please Mr. President, please look our for American interests... not our enemies'.

for it is the wellspring of life.
Put away perversity from your mouth;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead,
fix your gaze directly before you.
Make level paths for your feet
and take only ways that are firm.
Do not swerve to the right or the left;
keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:23-27
Two nights ago (Sunday), I taught the youth group James 3:1 – 12. It was one of those “heart check” moments… at least for me. The fruit of the spirit is:
Self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)
Jesus said “…out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45)
So the question is: What is the overflow of my heart?
How about yours?

I like adventure... but this is a little too much... at least for me.

food also loves me.
Recently I let my social network know that I will (and have now been)
fasting for three days. I thought I would be in agony, but outside of
a really bad headache that lasted 26 hours... it has been amazingly
"easy". I found that after about 12 hours I was "starving", but after
12 more... nothing. Sure, the candy dish in the office is a real
temptation but I have lost all pain in my tummy to eat.
Of course, if I continue for weeks... the pain would come back and intensely.
Stomach pains call us to eat... a call to provision. Jesus, when
confronted by the Devil, said "It is written: 'Man does not live on
bread alone." (Luke 4:4)
Friends, missing a meal (or several) as a devotion to the Lord and
calling for clarity is one thing... but to neglect the soul of it's
needed food is dangerous.
Food for thought... eh?
