Your Own Personal Satan

Quick post today.  It’s Spring Break which makes for a super full schedule of fun and work…

Our typical cartoon version of Satan.  Just remember that Satan is neither a cartoon character nor a joke.

Here’s a bit of insight into the type of reading material that catches my eye.  I was reading an article on the Dallas Morning News website about Robert Hart who is general counsel for Mark Cuban.  Cuban of course is the entrepreneurial genius, internet billionaire, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and star of Shark Tank.  Hart is Cuban’s right-hand man and tries to make sure all the legal stuff gets handled when Mr. Cuban goes off and buys a $41 million dollar jet online, or something like that 🙂

There was a quote in the article that was classic Cuban.  In speaking of his “hate” of dealing with lawyers he said this of his friend Mr. Hart…

“Lawyers may be Satan, but Robert is my Satan, and I trust him completely. He’s not only a trusted adviser, he’s a good friend.”

Obviously I understand the context and the point that Cuban was making for the article that this quote came from, but what a thought for us to consider as well.  What if we did have our own personal Satan who was our good friend and trusted adviser?  Its worth pausing and thinking about who we turn to for counsel and advice as we make decisions in life.

I told you this post would be quick.  That will give you plenty of time to check out Written On My Heart – Week 10 where we work to memorize the 10 commandments and take a look at what the Bible has to say about their relevance to our life today.
