Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

How Do You Read the Bible?

On my first day of my Intro to New Testament class, the professor said this:

A text that has been disembodied from any historical context is nothing but a pretext for you to say whatever you want.

A.J. Levine's words on Monday are very true. We don't all have to be scholars with Ph.D.'s, but a quick look into the cultures that produced the documents we like to use as trump cards is well worth it. At a minimum, such an examination will prevent us from saying something stupid.
