The true test of our worldview is what we find entertaining. —Albert Mohler

The root of the problem is that We Complain Because We Forget  – “The antidote to spiritual amnesia is making every effort to recall and remember God’s gracious deliverance. The fact that you — a sinner who was an enemy of God — are now a beloved child is a miracle. Don’t let that wonder ever fade. Remember.”

Help for anyone on the frontlines in Parenting Your Middle School Girl  – “She is going to go on a ride.  You do not have to go with her.”

Erin Davis on 5 Ways You Might Be Accidentally Blowing It in regards to being a representative of Jesus Christ.  “I will not represent Christ perfectly, but then I remember that even those imperfections and mistakes tell a story about Jesus. He is a God who rescues sinners and turns them into ambassadors for the best news ever. He is a God who sees my mistakes and wants me on His team anyway. He is a God who weaves my little story into His cosmic story and then asks me to share that story with others. I will not do it perfectly. Neither will you. Perfection isn’t the assignment. Living every moment for Christ is.”

The struggle is real to fight pride’s preoccupation with me and to Think of Yourself Less  – “As C.S. Lewis said, true humility is “not thinking less of ourselves, but thinking of ourselves less.” We can spend a lot of time thinking less of ourselves but we only end up thinking a lot about ourselves. The problem of pride does not boil down to whether we think high thoughts or low thoughts about ourselves but that we think lots of thoughts about ourselves.”

In case you’ve ever found yourself wondering How to Pray When Someone You Love is Stuck in Sin  – “The truth is, we all have a sin problem. That’s why we need Jesus so much. But if someone you love is trapped in a pattern of sin, or refuses to repent from sin the stakes can seem sky high. When I don’t know what to pray, I pray God’s Word. With that in mind, here are ten ways to pray for someone stuck in sin straight from Scripture.”
