Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

We’re a busy culture. We are go-go-go with not just a lot on one plate, but many plates. The Bible warns us the sloth will perish in poverty, but we can take the opposite to extreme which is just as ignorant.

Scripture has many verses about the need for rest. It refreshes our spirits, gives us time to connect with God, allows our bodies to recoup and recharge.

Health experts have always praised the benefits of rest.

This doesn’t mean sleep, which we do every day. It means to limit your activity … read the rest. . .

One of the hottest topics in our culture today is fake news. Obviously, not all news is fake. At the same time, not everything we hear and read is true. It goes without saying the importance of knowing the difference between what is authentic and what is counterfeit.

Beckie Lindsey: When God is Silent

I’ll buy you a Starbucks.” I pretty much offered to let her move into my study if she supplies coffee regularly.
