1| My sons really enjoyed this Prager University video by Mike “Dirty Jobs” Rowe: “Don’t Follow Your Passion

Should you follow your passion, wherever it may take you? Should you do only what you love…or learn to love what you do? How can you identify which path to take? How about which paths to avoid? TV personality Mike Rowe, star of “Dirty Jobs” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” shares the dirty truth in PragerU’s 2016 commencement address.

…All too often, Christian seminaries and universities run from politics, believing the canard about “the separation of church and state” and self-applying a piece of duct tape over their mouth. The tragedy is that the last two to three generations of Christian pastors and leaders have surrendered the public square to a non-biblical piety that separates the secular from the Holy. Is it any wonder that “Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to foreigners” (Lam. 5:2, MEV)?

…What if Daniel had refused to acknowledge King Nebuchadnezzar and acted like he was too righteous to relate to him? What if Daniel had not answered the request to interpret his dream? When you read the book of Daniel, you find him relating to these leaders continually, oftentimes entrusted with great influence upon the nation and even property, but at other times, being put in prison or ending up in a lion’s den. Daniel was not for sale. He even told King Belshazzar, “keep your gifts.”[3] God always prevailed. Daniel was always faithful.

Why would we not want godly spiritual leaders to be influencers upon national and global leaders today?
