Dreams II

In July 2008, I posted a list of dreams and goals for my life. What would I include in that list today?

1. Become like Apollos of Alexandria, who was "mighty in the Scriptures" (Acts 18:24-28)
2. Grow in joyful trust of "the God of the living" (Mark 12:27)
3. Learn more recipes and invite many people to my house for meals (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:39)
4. Learn how to care for children, how to walk together with folks my own age, and how to respect my elders (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:39)
5. Memorize the Minor Prophets, Acts, Matthew, Hebrews, Chronicles/Kings, Nehemiah, etc (Jeremiah 15:16; Deuteronomy 32:47; Matthew 4:4)
6. Study the Old Testament in Hebrew (Deuteronomy 11:18)
7. Encourage others to "come to Him" (Revelation 22:17) and to "remain in Him" (John 15)
8. Run a few miles each week (1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 Timothy 4:8)
9. Learn to read Akkadian cuneiform documents, Biblical Aramaic, and modern German so I can read articles about those old cuneiform docs :) (Isaiah 28:11)
10. Do it all for the glory of Christ (Philippians 3:8)
