Here are some posts from around the world wide web that you may find interesting this week:
The Most Important Time To Go To Church – David Gunderson – The author opens with the punchline, “The most important time to be at church is when you don’t feel like it.” It’s worth reading the whole thing though!
Ten Abilities of Emotionally Healthy People – Jimmy Evans – I don’t think we fully appreciate the importance of our emotional health. As the author of this article notes, “Your relationship with your spouse will never exceed your individual emotional health.”
Being Right In Relationships – Ed Welch – In conflict, there is a more important question to ask than, “Am I right?” The better question is, “Did I love?”
Three Reflections After My First Year As A Christian – Eleanor Dell – It is so easy to lose sight of the importance of evangelism and forget the joy of coming to know Christ. That is what I appreciate like this one so much.
When Google Met God: Billy Graham’s 1998 TED Talk – Daniel Motley – I was surprised to learn that Billy Graham once gave a TED talk! There is so much good to learn from this example. Here is a quote from Graham’s talk, “We can’t get along with other people, even in our own families. We find ourselves in the paralyzing grip of self-destructive habits we can’t break. Racism and injustice and violence sweep our world, bringing a tragic harvest of heartache and death. Even the most sophisticated among us seem powerless to break this cycle. I would like to see Oracle take up that, or some other technological geniuses work on this. How do we change man so that he doesn’t lie and cheat and our newspapers are not filled with stories of fraud in business or labor or athletics or wherever?”
