Do you know what’s happening tonight?? You might think I’m referring to Game 2 of the World Series. But it’s also the night of the third debate of the Republican candidates for president. It’s likely to last at least three hours, and I will be firmly planted in front of the TV for all of it, as I was for the previous two, and as I was two weeks ago for the Democratic debates.
It was just about a year ago that I professed my love for political punditry. My second favorite thing about Sundays is listening the Sabbath gasbags (a term I use affectionately) dissect the news on the morning talk shows. And I’m not sure which I enjoy more—hearing the journalists and analysts talk politics, or doing the talking myself. Once I get going, it’s hard to shut me up!
Imagine if I were always so excited, so enthusiastic, so passionate when talking about Jesus!
And while politics have some importance, how much weight will tonight’s debates carry in eternity?
Do you ever find yourself more passionate about your hobbies and interests than about Jesus?
