No Apologizing

"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15

John Piper takes an 8 month leave of absence…


John Piper has been an influence on me.  Last week I learned that Piper announced that he was taking an 8 month leave of absence to work on his family.  I think that rather than being self centered that Piper has done the right thing.  Really, what are we without our family?  God Bless all of our wives.  Let us NEVER take advantage of whatever special relationships God has granted us.  This to me represents good leadership.  Because lets face it, in an age where everything is about self gratification, Piper has decided to stop, and fix his family first.

I was hoping to embed the video into the post but alas you have to pay for that.  So….HERE IS THE LINK to see Piper say it in his own words.
