We often mark our pasts by the regrets we have. Whether it’s trials we encounter, the disappointments we endure, or the unhealthy habits we foster, we each have lingering regrets in our lives. We allow ourselves to be burdened by our pain, scars and shame forgetting that Christ came to set us free.
10 Things I have learned about life in 2010:
- Everyone likes somebody who gets to the point quickly.
- Every problem you have is your responsibility, regardless of who caused it.
- Anger reveals weakness of character, violence even more so.
- Those who complain the most, accomplish the least.
- The greatest innovation in the history of humankind is language.
- Everyone you meet is better than you at something.
- Even if it costs no money, nothing is free if it takes time.
- To write a person off as worthless is an act of great violence.
- Casual swearing makes people sound dumb.
- Words are immensely powerful. One cruel remark can wound someone for life.

I have to give it to my good friend Cleve Persinger (@Persinger) for this ingenious, “11th hour” idea. This purely displays why we are good friends and co-laborers in ministry. I am kinda jealous of his creativity, but so glad to plug it and be part of the MediaSalt.com team.
It’s about OTHERS, December 13-25! Seriously, pick one person per day, during the 12 days before Christmas, and encourage them publicly through Twitter.
Why? We’ve all experienced the occasional self-centeredness, rants, and one-way conversation Twitter can bring out sometimes. Let’s join together to change that during the next 12 days.
That’s what Christmas should be about anyway. Offering encouraging words is one way we can give this season, and in some cases to those who are least deserving. Isn’t that what Jesus did?
The creativity of North Point just kills me .. Genius guys; sure GENIUS !!
