My gratitude goes to Moody Publishers for sponsoring the blog this week to tell you about a new book by Steve DeWitt titled Loneliness. It’s one you may want to check out!

Don’t Regret Your Past—Redeem It

Though we do many regrettable things, we do not need to live our lives in regret. God has something better for us to do, as Curtis Solomon explains here.

Parents, Are You Raising Angry Partisans?

“Christian parents are called to raise our children ‘in the discipline and instruction of the Lord’ (Ephesians 6:4). Our children, in other words, should be able to look to us to see what a life submitted to Christ looks like. We should live in a manner that makes the gospel more intelligible to our children.

You’re Gonna Lose Everything

“I know people who, if they come to Christ, will lose everything.” As do you and I, I’m sure.

My Husband and I Keep Fighting Over the Same Thing

Aaron Sironi offers counsel on one of those situations that seems all too common in marriage.

What Are the “All Things” I Can Do in Christ?

This is a good passage to understand correctly!

How Are We Handling Generational Differences?

Stephen Kneale writes about some of the ways older and younger generations can fail to be gracious and loving toward one another.

  • Trusting Jesus in The Public Square 

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers. Parents have a biblical responsibility to protect their children not only from physical harm but also from spiritual harm. It is entirely appropriate and right for a parent to wrestle with whether they want to allow their child to continue to have a friendship with a…

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…
