You’re Your Own Boss

I loved this from Godin today on the benefits of freelancing. I often forget that I am both boss and employee of myself, and I think most often when I forget I am led to believe that being the employee of myself is more important than being the boss. It’s not.

You’re your own boss, most of the time, and figuring out a way to become better at being the boss of you is a worthwhile investment of effort.

I Love Thy Kingdom

I am including this hymn from former Yale president (starting in 1795) Timothy Dwight in my talk on Ephesians next week. In fact I’m ending my talk by praying it because it’s such a sweet picture of how we should view the big-C church.

I love Thy kingdom, Lord.
The house of Thine abode,
The Church our blest Redeemer saved
With His own precious blood.
For her my tears shall fall;
For her my prayers ascend;
To her my cares and toils be giv’n,
Till toils and cares shall end.

-Timothy Dwight (late 1700s)
