This is one of my favorite bible verses. With all the blessings I’ve had in my life, I repeat it consistently, to remember. I’m sometimes embarrassed when I think back on the things a younger me would get upset about. But I guess that’s life. The last few years have more than reminded me of what’s important.
Many have probably heard the quote, “to whom much is given, much is required.” Well, here is the verse from which it originates:
“But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”
Greetings from Formby Golf Club in Formby, England. I’ve been here this week, helping my Dad and his company, Golfstat, work the 2016 Arnold Palmer Cup. It’s been a great event and week of golf, despite the U.S. being dominated by Europe through the first three rounds. Europe currently leads the U.S., 13-7, overall. Europe needs 2 1/2 points to secure the victory here at Formby.
Mostly, though, it’s been great to be here helping my Dad and spending a week with him. It’s been a rough couple years, and a rough couple months for the family. Always good to get away and see family.
My old site was hacked, potentially. I’m not exactly sure what happened and other priorities in life took precedent. Either way, after a long hiatus, my personal site is back. Welcome back to BrianLaesch.com.
