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.


Weekly Recap - 9/9-9/15

Should we bereave the lost lives? Daily. Should we hate? Never.

Here's last week's '5 Minutes of Caring' from CoolPeopleCare. Sign up to get these emailed to you each day.

Things are about to get really bad in Darfur, and unless people get together to raise awareness, thousands will die.

This is the question I'm pondering this week for my Hebrew Bible class.

The church needs not to seek to give to the wants of the insider, but to meet the needs of the outsider. Yes, the church should welcome all who have a desire to enter, but it does not need to do so at the expense of missing the needs of the world.

Now that its potential for eyeballs looking at ads has greatly increased, I can see Mark walking off into the sunset around Christmas time with maybe double that.

We value time, and know you do to. We should all strive to be efficient in the work that pays us as well as the behavior and habits that define us.

In backing policies that only ultimately lead to its own protection, the church is seen as hypocritical at best and meaningless at worst.

Therefore, when arguments and jealousy seek to impede the promises of God, free Israelite males are presented as blameless and the culpability can be placed almost exclusively on female slaves.

So, philanthropy is popular. But, is it easy?
