As a part of my talk, I showed this video that we originally created and used in early 2007. The video is straightforward, bothersome, and quite revealing as it illustrates a huge gap between how people view Jesus and how they view the people who are supposed to be representing him.
(And just so you know, the video was not edited to make a point. In the 45 minutes of interviews, we did not receive ONE positive comment for the second half of the video.)
I've got to be honest. I don't really care much at all for Valentine's Day. There's just something about expressing my love to someone via a Valentine's Day card or gift that feels fake, forced and flat out cheesy.
And yes, I know... That was kinda harsh.
But while I'm at it, I have to wonder how many of us men use Valentine's Day as a "make up" day for all the OTHER days throughout the year that we SHOULD have been romancing our wives and expressing our love in creative, fun ways to our children and loved ones.
As you can see, I have not yet had any coffee this morning.
