God’s way of putting people right shows up in actually of faith, confirming what Scripture has said all along: “The person in right standing before God by trusting Him really lives.”

Romans 1:17

This goes back to my post yesterday about inequality. What’s in your heart comes out in your actions and words. When that’s selfishness and greed, of course selfish and greedy policies seem reasonable. When it’s generosity and thankfulness, acquisition of wealth and material things loses its luster.

Enough of that.

I’m back to work today after a week off with Ian and Benji. I love them dearly, but I’m also keen to get back to work. There’s a project I’m finishing up that I’m pretty proud of, and I have another project I get to work on periodically that’s exciting.

Yesterday I joined a big group for a New Year’s Day ride, kicking the year off right.

The ride started only six miles from my house, so I left 15 minutes before the start. Turns out that cuts it a little too close; I was still riding up the last hill when the official start time can’t and went.

Fortunately, that hill was only a minute from the gathering point, and since it was a big group, they were still getting their act together a couple minutes after the start time. I was able to zip in at the last second.

Of course, I’d burned a bunch of matches getting there, and then the ride proved quite vigorous. I got several PRs. It was a good time.

Now I’m all confused about what day of the week it is. Back to work!
