Whenever I hear or read something I like and want to refer to it later, I don’t know how to put it in a place where I can access it.

In the old days we use index cards. But it’s not very searchable; you’d have to look at every card to find what you’re looking for.  Or write it in my journal, but again, not searchable.

With technology now, what is the best way to dump things from my mind that I want to remember for future reference?

I started a new category – stuff to remember. And maybe I’ll be able to find it here on my site.

Stuff to remember from today:

https://blog.efca.org/blog/disciplemaking-compassion/truth-about-loving-our-neighbors   Every church should get this wake up call. I shared it with my senior pastor. He always says, “Would our neighbors miss us if we closed down?” At this point, I don’t think so.  I don’t think there are many churches that nonChristians would miss.

Heard Charles Stanley on the radio: His grandfather told him, “If God told you to run your head through a brick wall, you head to the wall and when you get there, God will make a hole for it.” The point is, Obey God and leave all the consequences to him. God assumes full responsibility for what happens to you when you obey him.


Somewhere along the line, we’ve convinced ourselves that simply living our lives, caring for our people and doing what we can for those outside our circles is not enough. That following the command Jesus gave to love our neighbors has to mean something more elaborate than just loving our family or baking cupcakes for our actual neighbors. We forget that God gave us these people … that we are where we are for a reason, and we can change lives by the very act of reaching out to those in our lives.”

Loving your neighbor is no small thing. If everyone – everyone in the world – followed Jesus’ command to love our neighbor, it would change the world. Jesus is always right.
