Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Monday Links and Bullets 7.25.11

Last Monday post for July.  Wow.  Here we go with this week’s links.

LINK OF THE WEEK

–Here’s an excellent article on praying for pastors.

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

What higher ed says about Adam and Eve.  I find this to be totally ridiculous, but that’s my opinion.

Sin CAN be killed.  This is great hope and good encouragement.

MISCELLANEOUS

–Sports:  More good stuff on why college athletes should be paid.

–Homosexuality:  It is interesting to see a secular publication wrestle with the notion that people can convert their sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual.  According to the secular view, these people shouldn’t exist.

–Society:  A 2nd chance for prostitutes.  Excellent idea, Nashville.

–Society:  Modern day poverty. This is a good read.

BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

  • Our kids are earning a dollar a week for chores.  Something is telling me we’re going to get our money’s worth out of this.
  • Dessert for breakfast is great.  Today I had my normal Monday morning plate of eggs, veggies, meat and cheese.  Then I ate a chocolate Honey Bun and had coffee with my breakfast dessert.
  • From last night’s service:  For God, raising people from the dead is natural.  How is our mind stretched by this?
  • Praying for lots of friends who have been traveling or are traveling.  A little jealous, but that comes with the territory.
  • Julie was looking for her phone this morning with her bag over her shoulder trying to get on her way out the door to work.  I called her phone and it was . . . in her bag.
  • VBS last week was great.  I loved watching the excitement of the kids and volunteers.
  • I miscalculated last week (because I’m dumb??).  NOW I have run 29 straight days with a total just over 210 miles.  I’m now into the 5th week of my training plan.  I should make a decision by the end of this week on whether or not I’m going to race at the end of August.  The bottom line is not that I will achieve a high level of confidence in achieving my goal.  My question ultimately will be this:  am I in good enough condition to be close to achieving my goal?
  • God is really so much bigger than I’m capable of thinking.  When I think too narrowly my faith shrinks.  God, help me to think big!
