Getting Graded

Think with me for a moment. Let's say you are in a classroom...elementary school, high school or college. What if the teacher said you can get an 'A', just for being you. You have no need to show up, no need to perform work, no need to learn.

What is the purpose of being in that class?

Success cannot exist without failure. James tells us that we should rejoice in trials, because the testing of our faith develops perseverance and ultimately maturity. (James 1, the Bible)

Have you answered the question yet?

Government bailouts are an automatic 'A'. If you are under the impression that government bailouts are necessary in any capacity, or beneficial in any way...why? Have you ever learned anything without being tested? Have you ever accomplished anything without risk? Have you ever learned anything that you had no incentive to learn about?

I am at a loss for words when it comes to the lack of common sense that is going around. People have abandoned philosophy. Is intent the only quality that we judge our leaders by? Does bad policy, led by good intent, lead to success and accomplishment? There are more questions than answers.

Encourage your leaders who lead with honor, fight against those who play politics with your life.
