Saturday Post

Why Does God Love Us? A short piece that clarifies a needed point. “To rightly answer the question we first must ask whom we mean by ‘us.’”

Toddlers & Picky Eating. I guess with my little one on the way, articles like this intrigue me a bit more. “Toddlers are an interesting bunch. They have their own plans about what they want to do and when they want to do it. And they will pick their attitude while they are doing it, thank you very much! So, what do you do when you have a toddler who’s a picky eater?”

Missed Motherhood. “Susan Shapiro’s article at The New York Times is as sad as anything I’ve read in a long time. She is the quintessential modern woman, having pursued a career and a life in the city through her childbearing years…After entering her forties in a more secure situation, she decided to try and get pregnant only to find that she couldn’t. She had always said that she didn’t want the life of her mother, who begin having children at a very young age and who defied feminist expectation by becoming a stay-at-home mom. Shapiro now thinks very differently about her mother’s decisions and her own.”

All Paths Lead to God. “There are many ways up the mountain, but only one will result in life instead of destruction…”

But God. “’But God.’ These two words are overflowing with gospel. For sinners like you and me who were lost and completely unable to save ourselves from our dead-set rebellion against God, there may not be two more hopeful words that we could utter.”

Two Years to No Lies. “Two years ago I took a vow to never tell a lie. Here is what happened…”

Unnoticed Marks of Grace. Important to remember that among the more emphasized marks of grace (bible reading, fellowship, etc.), “There are also some other marks of godliness, growth in godliness, or ‘evidences of grace’ that often go unnoticed and are sometimes quite neglected.”

When to Overlook a Fault: 12 Questions. “Here are some questions to ask to help us decide if we are to cover or overlook an offense….”

Benefits of Membership. A good word from a pastor. “Far too many are willing to shack-up with a church—they want to attend, they want to listen to the sermons, they want to receive financial assistance, they want the option to stay home on some Sundays—they want all of the benefits but none of the commitment or responsibility.”

Marshawn Lynch’s Press Conference With Skittles. “In a ‘press conference’ leading up to the big game, Marshawn Lynch agrees to take some questions from Skittles. Despite being famous for his reticence around the press, he is quite forthcoming here…”
