Here’s a few links to get you hoppin’ this morning! Happy weekend!
Back in May, I rode on a 5-hr flight next to a former Professional Netball player from England. We had a lengthy and indepth discussion on Christianity, religion, and the gospel. Although we differed greatly in opinion on about everything, it was a very healthy discussion, and she was very kind and accepting of this narrow-minded Jesus-believer. One of her many questions we touched on (and believe me, there were many!) was (paraphrased): I’m a good person and show kindness to everyone…I’ve gone to help the poor in Africa…I give to charities…I am nice even to those who aren’t nice back…so why do I need Jesus?

Helpful reminders for how not to study the Bible. You will notice that this is part of July’s Women of the Word theme at Crossway. Not too late to sign up for daily emails encouraging women to get into the Word!

“Every human, in every place on the planet, whatever the culture, is subject to the incessant passing of time. The sands are always falling. No matter how much we neglect it, suppress it, or stress about it, there is nothing we can do to stem the onslaught. Ignore the rush to your own peril. Or walk the path of wisdom in stewarding your short and few days as gifts from God.”
Ok, and one more for funsies. But it kinda ties in to our being stewards of time…and of time on the internet. This website will blow your mind!
