Each Friday, I’ll post links to 3–5 resources from around the web you may want to check out.
Knowing the Future Doesn’t Cure Anxiety

We are, indeed, anxious about what the future holds, wondering about what to do when difficulties arise in our friendships, our finances, and our families. If we could just know a bit more about what is coming next, surely we could lay to rest our anxieties and take a proactive stance. And certainly, we could relax and trust God!
Wrath Is Not an Attribute of God
This article offers a helpful explanation about God’s love, his wrath, and his attributes.
In our society, love is often reduced to affection or affirmation. To love someone is either to have warm feelings toward her or to affirm her without conditions. And when people in our society think of the wrath of God, they imagine a red-faced deity with a bad temper and short fuse. This irritable God lashes out with uncontrollable rage and finds pleasure in punishing the wicked.
The Joy of Reading Revelation
Nancy Guthrie provides seven reasons for reading and studying this often-avoided book.
The truth is, while the apocalyptic prophecy of Revelation presents some challenges to us as modern readers, it also provides gifts of insight and understanding to those who are willing to engage with it. Revelation is a letter written to gird us for faithful allegiance to Christ as we wait for his return. And that is encouragement we all need!
