I kind of enjoy reading about the sluggard in the Book of Proverbs. I find him a sadly comical character who highlights a lot of weaknesses in my own life. So it was with great anticipation that I read the short book (42 pages) Crazy Lazy: A warning against laziness by Alistair Begg. This is a great introduction to the sluggard and the challenges he delivers.
According to a recent news article ‘awesome’ is one of the most popular words that our society uses and abuses. No matter where you go you can always hear someone say ‘that’s awesome!’ And it can cover anything from a beautiful view to a Subway sandwich.
I guess the cultural phenomenon that sums up our modern usage of ‘awesome‘ is the catchy and addictive theme song from the LEGO Movie ‘everything is awesome’.
