EDITORIAL/President Obama on 'acting white'
The Wall Street Journal said in an editoiral on July 25:

President Obama's My Brother's Keeper initiative doesn't get much media attention, perhaps because it isn't controversial. But his effort to highlight the challenges faced by young minority men deserves more support and applause.

Wise words for life
Today, we come to chapter 10. But what does this chapter have to do with what we've been talking about in chapters 1-9? Suddenly we get this unassociated list of parables and proverbs. What are we supposed to do with this? How does this fit with the flow of argument? This whole chapter, though it may seem like a rambling set of unconnected proverbs is actually a meditation on folly and is a development on the argument that he's been carrying on from chapter 1 to chapter 9, that the fool looks at life in the wrong way, and the wise man looks at life in the right way. The fool looks at life apart from the living God, and the wise man looks at life through the lenses of the living God. So, there's a reason that he pauses here and speaks about folly.

LOWRY/The inexperienced President
"Stop just hatin' all the time." If you haven't been following the news, you might not know whether this bon mot was uttered by a character on the ABC Family show "Pretty Little Liars" or by the president of the United States.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Matthew 21:18-19
In this passage Jesus approaches a fig tree looking for fruit, but upon closer examination finds nothing but leaves. He responds to the unproductive tree by condemning it; "May you never bear fruit again." Immediately the tree withered. Jesus is using this particular tree as an object lesson. He has in mind something that has a show of life but in fact is unproductive or fruitless. He has in mind religious but barren people. He has in particular mind the people of Israel, but it extends to whoever would profess faith in Christ but is not fruitful.

BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES/The Universal End
The author of the Book of Ecclesiastes who calls himself the Preacher, has a thesis and his thesis is: Life is empty, vain, meaningless, futile, and without satisfaction. And furthermore, people attempt to fill that emptiness and find some meaning in a meaningless life in various ways.

TANNER/African economic reform
As representatives from 50 African countries gather in Washington this week for the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, there is no doubt that the continent is facing many serious challenges, including the threat of Islamic extremism from Nigeria to Somalia, ongoing civil wars in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic, and the one most noticed in the West, the Ebola outbreak. As crucial as these issues are, however, an even more important one may lurk below the headlines: economic reform.
