Weekly Wisdom [10.05.18]

Need some Weekly Wisdom?  Here are my favorite resources of the week.

VERSE OF THE WEEK

For a day in your courts is better
    than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of wickedness [Ps. 84:10].

BOOK OF THE WEEK

The Attributes of God: Volume 1 by A. W. Tozer

“A Journey Into the Father’s Heart” *volume 1* includes study guide.   Each of these volumes explores 10 attributes of God, including goodness, mercy, grace, holiness, omnipotence, wisdom, faithfulness, sovereignty, etc.

Favorite Quotes:

  1. The Church will come out of her doldrums when we find out that salvation is not a light bulb only, that it is not an insurance policy against hell only, but that it is a gateway into God and that God is all that we would have and can desire (3).
  2. A local church will only be as great as its conception of God (41).
  3. Did you ever stop to think that God is going to be as pleased to have you with Him in heaven as you are to be there (56)?

PODCAST OF THE WEEK

The Briefing by Al Mohler

Why it’s intellectually dishonest to act as if the politicization of the Supreme Court is a new development.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

And sometimes when things get overwhelming, it is suggested that we need to “take a retreat with Jesus.”  But maybe we’ve had enough retreats with Jesus.  Maybe Jesus wants us to learn how to get things done.
-Matt Perman

SONG OF THE WEEK

I had heard this song before, but somehow rediscovered it this week.  It is such a powerful testimonial song by Big Daddy Weave.  “My Story” is my story.

POST OF THE WEEK

TIP OF THE WEEK

Plan Priorities

If you don’t make your schedule, someone else will make it for you.  I often hear how people can’t find time for the most important relationships or activities, but what that means is they have filled their calendars with lesser pursuits.  Make sure you plan your priorities or else you will never get around to them.
