Each Friday, I’ll post links to 3–5 resources from around the web you may want to check out.
Why We Sleep (And the God Who Doesn’t)
Nick Tucker reflects on David’s ability to sleep while in danger and God’s inability (!) to sleep.
To think about God’s greatness, we naturally tend to talk about what God can do. We, however, are going to consider what God can’t do—and when you realise what God can’t do, his greatness might just blow your mind.
Senior Saints, We Need You
This is a great encouragement for all of us to care for and learn from our older brothers and sisters in the faith.
It’s time to step up our efforts at ministering to (and with) these older brothers and sisters. They have so much to contribute to the church. “Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days” (Job 12:12). But they need help discerning how best to mature in faith and practice as their bodies decline. They need encouragement to finish their race with endurance, resilience, and joy.
Slow to Anger
Here’s an encouraging meditation on God’s patience, particularly as it is captured in the phrase “slow to anger.”
If we were God in heaven, we would have grown impatient with people like us long ago. Our anger rises quickly in the face of personal offense. Our frustration boils over. Our judgments readily fire. And apart from the daily renewal of our minds, we can easily measure God “by that line of our own imaginations,” as if his thoughts matched our thoughts, and his ways our ways.
