While driving into Cincinnati for work last week, I pulled up behind a car at a traffic light with the customized license plate LV2PLA.

Why have a customized plate?  I suppose it is an effective way to communicate your philosophy or loyalty to a particular team or support for an issue of importance, but LV2PLA?

Living to play is lived out for many of us in the media.  We have an national chain of restaurants celebrating the end of the work week and time to play.  Commercials plant the idea that the enjoyment of life’s pleasures is the end goal.  But is it really?

How much emptiness do you see in a life that lives to play?

Last weekend a group of us discussed the importance of the Resurrection in relation to faith based on 1 Corinthians 15.  In answer to some who doubted whether or not there is a resurrection, Paul wrote that “if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain….and if in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (vs 14, 19)

If Christ was not Resurrected?  “If the dead are not raised, Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 1 Corinthians 15: 32b

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead..1 Corinthians 15: 20a

So what about a plate that says LV2LV?
