It’s March 2012 already.  Time is flying!  Enjoy some good articles today – some of my bullet thoughts (as always!) are below.

WEEKLY LINKS:

LINK OF THE WEEK

–Lots of tornadoes this week.  Great thoughts from Desiring God.

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

Try harder.  This is really an interesting, short little read. Don’t be fooled by the title.

–In difficult situations . . . do you teach your kids to love?

Eye opening stats on porn.

The best thing to do for your pastor.  Couldn’t agree more.

–I’ve been linking to this counseling blog.  It’s a great blog – here’s an article about joys in trial.

CURRENT EVENTS AND THOUGHT

–For some, abortion is no different than killing live babies.  Follow the logic here and see how destructive it is.

Would this story be different if they were Muslims?

BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

  • I am enjoying a Monday of rest.  It’s been several weeks since I had a Monday that I didn’t have to deal with some distraction or other.
  • I have been tested recently regarding exactly how selfish I am.  It has been worth reflecting on and discovering patterns that bring the struggle (sin) about.
  • I have been watching a documentary on Netflix called “The Story of Us”.  It’s about American History, and it’s excellent.  I highly recommend it to you.
  • If you think you’re the only person who sits in your church who has problems, think again!  The goal is to build community that is real about problems and supportive through them.
  • Must say I’m struggling with discipleship.  Am I doing it well?  Is it an intentional priority? Am I leading others in making disciples?
  • How often do you reflect on the little things?  Being grateful for the little things prevents a lot of drama in our lives, doesn’t it?
  • In studying for the passage about Jesus being rejected by those in his hometown, I was really challenged by the need to be aware of things that might prevent me from fully experiencing Jesus.  For the people in his hometown, it was their relationships with Him.  What is it for me? For you?
  • I hope to not be too distracted by baseball this year.  I enjoy it but I need to watch how much time I spend following it.

Have a great Monday everyone!
