The Bible is now practically everywhere; thanks especially to the smartphone app. However, ironically enough, biblical understanding and its use has become shallower and less serious as biblical access has become more convenient and easy.
The best thing we can do to prepare to read and hear the biblical story is to exercise our imagination.
I have become more solidly convinced over time that a huge reason why we don’t read our Bibles more isn’t because we are afraid it isn’t true but because are terrified that it really is.
I don't agree with those who say that busy-ness or the demands of our jobs make it hard for us to live lives of free and gracious giving.
As Christ redeems this world from the effects of sin, our giving is one important way we can participate in and contribute to his redemptive work.
How can we help create space where the first question is not "Are you giving 10%?" but "What can we do to help empower you to experience this aspect of faithful living?"
