A La Carte (10/22)

Blind Spots and Lane Changes - Thabiti reflects on leadership: “The problem with blind spots is you don’t see them. Blind spots make lane changes surprisingly dangerous. It happens in leadership, too. Leaders have blind spots. I know I do. We don’t often discover them until we’re making a change, adjusting course. You’re cruising along, changing lanes, and sometimes someone has to honk the horn real loud. Have you ever had that happen? I have.”

Left Behind Reboot - The Left Behind series of films may receive a reboot. And Nicholas Cage might star in it.

3 Things They Don’t Teach - Matt Perman identifies three things they don’t teach us in school that we all later pay dearly for: Personal management (how to get things done and know what the right things are to get done); Career management; Leadership.

Responses to the Problem of Evil - Michael Patton has an article that looks at the five responses to the problem of evil. It’s a wee bit technical, but covers useful ground since so many people charge Christianity with being unable to deal with evil.

Athletes Turn to Lecrae - ESPN says that Lecrae is a big influence in the sports world and does an interview with him to find out why.

Tithing and Charities - Christianity Today asked three people to answer this question: “Is It Stealing From God to Split Your Tithe Between the Church and Other Charities?” David Croteau answered the question at his blog and answered very well, I think.

The Messiness of Being Human - Clint Archer: “Recently my commitment to consecutive exposition was acutely tested. I tackled the chapter every seminoid dreads from the day he graduates, namely Leviticus 15 (you know, the heart-warming one about emissions and discharges of various bodily fluids). The challenges of preaching this sticky wicket are manifold.” The article’s well worth a read.

If you find a professing Christian indifferent to his Bible, you may be sure that the very dust upon its cover will rise up in judgment against him. —C.H. Spurgeon
