100 Truths in 30 Years

Dan Edelen has written 100 things that he has learned since he became a Christian thirty years ago. Here are a few choice ones:
  • Love God. Love people. It’s that simple.
  • In the end, nothing in life satisfies but Jesus.
  • One of the most easily seen fruits in mature Christians is that they pray for people who oppose them rather than complain about them.
  • Many of Evangelicalism’s most intractable problems would vanish if we adopted the confessional booth.

Read the whole thing. Hat tip to Joe Carter's 33 Things -- one of the best weekly events in the blogosphere.

What would be on your list?

Does eat oats and mares eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.

Sorry, I maxed out at three.

Shakespeare does indeed sound best in the original Klingon, but the Lapine translation is also melodious.
