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 CharitiesChristianity 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

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
