3 WAYS TO FIGHT DATING TEMPTATIONS

We grow up learning about Eve being tempted in the Garden (Gen. 3:1–7) and Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1–11). Maybe we’ve often repeated the Lord’s prayer that states, “Lead us not into temptation” (Matt. 6:13). Temptation presents itself in various...

THE LOVE OF BEAUTY

I know beauty when I see it. I am now out-of-doors in the morning on a spring day, drinking coffee with the right kind of cup, a light breeze flowing over my shoulder, the prospect of a useful day (which is the best day for me) and a sense of God’s hand planning all...

HOW TO FIND A WIFE

The proverb says, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” (Prov. 18:22). But wisdom also tells us that one should seek this blessing from the Lord at the appropriate time and in a godly way. Many Christians enter the dating scene while...

A PIECE OF ADVICE FROM AN NGSB GUY

BUT WAIT!

The sun is about to set, and you're still sitting on that same bench in the middle of the park, listening to your favorite songs for hours now. You're trying your best to ease your boredom as you stare at your watch, counting every tick of time. Moments later and...

DOES GOD TELL US WHO TO MARRY?

Let me just put it out there: I don’t believe God reveals to us specifically whom we’re going to marry beforehand. (I’m not saying God doesn’t provide for or direct us, just that you won’t hear a “Marry Joe” directive from God.) I understand you might be convinced...

LEFT OUT: THE BENEFITS OF EXCLUSION

Exclusion is a part of life. It is unavoidable. Not only that, it is good. Isn’t it good that the whole school doesn’t get to have a say in your child’s education? That the whole church isn’t governed by the whim of the congregation each week but by a group of trusted...
