Dodge, Dive, Dip, Duck and…Dodge!

We all know that dodgeball is one of the great sports in which mankind has ever been engaged.

Where else can one act lawfully on the primal desire to heave an object directly at another’s head?


Dodgeball requires dexterity, awareness and quick reflexes, but it also doesn’t hurt to have brute strength in your possession either.  Musings on dodgeball take me back to the great heydays of middle school.  As a little guy myself, each dodgeball match gave me a new opportunity to bring down my larger opponents.  I was, after all, quite a nimble dodger and was able to avoid many collisions.  There were some problems however…I rarely ever touched the ball and even when I did, I had no arm for throwing anything with heat on it. Also, my targets were unfortunately smaller than a barn’s broadside. 


Sweet Slavery

      A great philosopher once wrote “You’re gonna have to serve somebody.  It may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but you’re gonna have to serve somebody.”  Bob Dylan’s words ring true because they are.  In fact, they are Biblical. Paul tells us in Romans 6:16, “Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey – whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?”  We all have a choice, but it may not be the choice we expected.
