Need some Weekly Wisdom? Here are my favorite resources of the week.
VERSE OF THE WEEK
The LORD is my portion; I promise to keep your words [Ps. 119:57].
BOOK OF THE WEEK
Newsweek called renowned minister Timothy Keller “a C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century” in a feature on his first book, The Reason for God. In that book, he offered a rational explanation of why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, Keller takes his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity and uses the parable of the prodigal son to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.
Within that parable, Jesus reveals God’s prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.
PODCAST OF THE WEEK
JT, Jen and Kyle are joined by Kelsey Hency, Editor in Chief of Fathom Magazine and Bible teacher, to talk about the Ark of the Covenant. They look at what it is, why it exists and its relationship to the presence of God.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Our greatest fear as individuals and as a church should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.-Tim Kizziar
SONG OF THE WEEK
“Oh Great God, Give Us Rest” is an incredible rousing track from the David Crowder Band.
POST OF THE WEEK
For the believer wanting to know God’s will for her life, the first question to pose is not “What should I do?” but “Who should I be?”
TIP OF THE WEEK
Measure Twice, Cut Once. This old phrase for woodworkers encourages people to be meticulous in your measurements before actually cutting the wood. I think the wisdom goes throughout a lot of life. Really count the cost and do your homework before making a rash decision.
