Thanks for your patience last week and I hope you all enjoyed reflecting on the Scripture for a change!
Sometimes it helps to mix things up a bit, even when it comes to regularly scheduled blogging. Maybe even especially in such a case. Blogging can get stale for both writer and reader, particularly if the writing is being done simply to write something…anything. I decided a long time ago that it was not worth it for me to strive to blog daily. Some do, and I admire them for it. For me, it became a chore to cross off my list rather than a welcome opportunity to share, reflect, and teach. But I do enjoy bringing these weekly roundups to you, as well as the occasional article.
Well, if you can believe it, July is nearly upon us! It’s less than six months until Christmas, and the days are already getting shorter. So as you ponder the brevity of life, take a few precious moments to pause and enjoy your week in review (kind of):
- There is so much about this article that makes me sad because it’s contrary to Scripture. Perhaps the most disheartening thing is not that it describes an aged female preacher, but that this preacher apparently believes in a false gospel of law and works. There is a woeful irony there.
- Thinking about John’s vision of Jesus’ glory.
- Another interesting biography!
- I love Wisconsin, but I do not understand some of their traditions. (HT to Amy for this one!)
- I’m looking forward to reading this.
- This is bittersweet and special.
- Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
- Wow. Praise God this baby survived!
- Just what we need, people dedicating their lives to break dancing.
- “I need Thee every hour.” Isn’t that the cry of all of our hearts?
The Great God values not the service of men, if the heart be not in it: The Lord sees and judges the heart; he has no regard to outward forms of worship, if there be no inward adoration, if no devout affection be employed therein. It is therefore a matter of infinite importance, to have the whole heart engaged steadfastly to God.Isaac Watts
