Joel Belz: “Media reporting on the recent devastating flooding—in places as distant as Mozambique and as close as the Missouri River Valley—brought a new reminder: The doctrine of creation matters. The problem is that so few Christians really believe that anymore.”
Tom Schreiner provides wisdom on interpreting tough texts.

Cassie reflects on God’s kindness and grace. “We should be grateful for all the small blessings God graciously gives us. But there’s actually nothing small about the blessings he gave today. I would have been kept from this particular joy by any number of life circumstances…”
John Piper answers a difficult question. “Chris Watts, a Colorado man who killed his pregnant wife and two young daughters, has confessed the details of his crime and been sentenced to five life sentences without the possibility of parole. Now, in these few short months, he has claimed to have ‘found God’ in prison. After following the news closely, back when he was originally suspected of this heinous crime, my reaction to his so-called ‘finding God’ was anger. Is it wrong for me to not want this man, who committed unspeakable acts, to know my Jesus? Do you believe someone like him can truly repent and enter the kingdom of God?”
I understand that sports need to sometimes change, but I’m definitely a traditionalist. “For a sport that leans so much on familiarity and tradition, baseball seems to be changing at an unusually rapid pace. Whether it’s because of new technology, new strategies or new rules, the game could look a lot different over the next decade or so.”

The good dad is the one who humbly, carefully says to his children, “Please forgive me.”
