weekend renewal

Corn at sunset - ShelliBourque

After a morning of editing images and writing a post, I realized the post doesn’t fit the feel of my weekend renewal posts. So I’m putting it on hold for this week. Oh joy for more than a weekend post. 😉

But now it’s getting late and the dust is calling and the text book is beckoning. So I’ll simply offer you a quick greeting, and some great reads that I came across this week:

It Matters Whom You Marry

So to all the young, unmarried Christian girls out there, listen up: who you marry matters. You might think that the way he treats you isn’t so bad. It’s not going to get better after the wedding. You might think that he’ll change. It’s possible, but most don’t. You might think that you’ll be able to minister to him and help him. Possibly, but if you can’t now, you won’t then, and you will be at risk yourself. A husband should lead and cherish you, not need your counsel for basic personality or behavior issues.

Unless someone married is very frank with you, you can’t understand how much a husband will impact your entire life. Next to salvation there is no other long term event that will change so many areas of your life so deeply. Here are just some of the ways that marriage will impact every aspect of living.

A Wise Woman Knows What She Wants

What motivates us to get up in the morning, act certain ways, fight for certain causes? Our desires. And at the end of the day, we need to evaluate whether our desires were self-driven or God’s-glory driven.

Thabiti on the myth of race

Five years ago at the Together for the Gospel Conference, Thabiti Anyabwile delivered a message on the myth of racial categories. Essentially it was an appeal for Christians to stop viewing race as a valid category, and to see that the entire concept of race is inextricably joined to the theory of evolution and an affront to the teaching of the Bible.

He argued that there is no biological basis for race, and that forcing humans into racial categories only leads to harm.

Have a great weekend, friends!
