Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

So, what you're saying is.....

When I can't talk sense, 
I talk metaphor. 
~John Philpot Curran

"It's now time for Congress to get back to our regularly scheduled programming, and that means jobs. While Washington has been consumed with averting a default, our nation's unemployment problem has been worsening. It's time for jobs to move back to the front burner. We can reset the debate, and that's what we intend to do. The jobs issue won't have to play second fiddle to the deficit issue anymore, and that's what the American people want. The public is glad to see we've moved to rein in our deficits, but now they will put the political premium on efforts to create jobs. As Democrats, that's our strong suit."--Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), quoted by Rush Limbaugh, Aug. 2

I think the whole "jobs" issue is tied to our horrific education system, which discourages true thought and originality. If you don't have kids thinking at ALL, let alone thinking outside the proverbial box, you're not going to have adults who invent and create and are entrepreneurial. Those children who only learn to regurgitate end up being adults who can only regurgitate.
