Good morning. May the Lord bless and keep you today.
There is a handful of good Kindle deals to look through today.
(Yesterday on the blog: In the Beginning There Were No Canyons)
Chris Martin: “My call is not a call to global ignorance but local faithfulness. One of my concerns is that our rightful concern for the vast brokenness and injustice around the world distracts us from faithfulness in our neighborhoods and churches.”
This article is in a similar vein. “I don’t watch the evening news, but I’m still flooded with the sometimes unspeakable suffering across our globe.”
“From the beginning of the human race, man has found a way to turn life-promoting technologies into tools of death.” Tragically, as Joe Carter shows here, this has been true of an innovation that rose to prominence during the pandemic.
Keith Kauffman: “Though we are physically absent from Christ as we traverse the dirt of Earth and Christ sits at the right hand of the Father, the Scriptures tell us that we are in communion with Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit. The writer of Hebrews tells us that we can approach the throne with boldness because we are united to Christ by faith through the work of the Spirit within us.”
Seth Lewis compares a freeway to God’s way in this short article.
Chris Thomas: “I knew better than to step through those rails while they were working; the frantic pace of the yards was warning enough. The thundering of hooves, the bellowing of cattle, and the curses of hard men were enough to keep me at bay. But it didn’t last forever.”
“Any missionary with any amount of years on the field will tell you. That wrinkled seasoned servant of God knew what she was talking about. Good-byes never get easier. My momma heart feels like it will break today.”
While everyone ages and while most will eventually see their hair go gray, only those who are wise—those who have lived a righteous life—are able to consider that gray hair “a crown of glory.”
