I used to be not in a position to monitor down any notably fascinating Kindle offers for as we speak. We’ll strive once more on Friday!
(Yesterday on the weblog: The Fantastic, Wonderful Jesus)
“I haven’t arrived at full contentment yet. I’d say nobody ever will, until we all have our sins completely washed away on that final day. Some mornings I wake up feeling particularly weak, having to rip myself from some fantasy world in my dreams. It takes a huge effort to drag myself to my Bible, open it up, and allow God to reorient my heart.”
“It’s easy to forget now, but Amazon wasn’t always the king of online shopping. In the fall of 2004, Jeff Bezos’s company was still mostly selling just books and DVDs.” This fascinating article traces the rise of Amazon Prime.
“For the past decade, God has been doing a work in my heart that has revolutionized the way I look at my pursuit of entertainment. Rather than establishing a complex set of standards in the spirit of the Scribes and Pharisees, I have learned to ask some simple yet powerful questions about what it means for me to find pleasure in entertainment.”
I loved Abby’s try right here to think about a few of what God would possibly say to our getting old mates.
This comes from 20schemes which is aware of a factor or two about ministering among the many poor. “I observe men sent out to pastor in poor areas of South Africa, this thinking appears to persist – ‘be poor, for the people among whom you work are poor!’ No doubt, such thinking probably stems from a desire to remove barriers for ministry and help the man relate well to the community. But I am with the locals: it’s a strange move.”
There’s nice recommendation right here for youthful folks. “Love God and not money. Steward all of your resources (time, talents, and treasure) well, and use them as a way to worship and serve God and to bless others, not just for yourself. Do this, and you will probably not be broke financially, nor will you be ‘broke in spirit.’”
Right here’s one to work on for a social media world. “Sinclair Ferguson once lamented the fact that whenever he overheard others discussing some public theologian or individual at a conference, the statements were almost always prefaced with a negative comment such as, ‘Well, you know, the problem with him is…’ Sadly, those sorts of conversations are far from uncommon among those of us who have been in the church for any length of time.”
Ephesians 5 tells a husband he should love his spouse as Jesus Christ loves his church. So let’s overlook about marriage for a minute and mirror merely on how we’re beloved by our nice Savior.
Startle not once I say it,—I worry that many males proudly ask to be humble: they want to be humble so that they might be admired for it. —C.H. Spurgeon
