Here are your key connections for the week!

Innocent As To What Is Evil (Adam Kareus, For The Church)

Adam Kareus writes a short article on the “simple little phrase… [that] rocked me to my core.”

Contentment Is Great Gain (Meghan Hill, enCourage)

An article adapted from a book by Meghan Hill in which she discusses three things that contentment does for us. Take a look:

It is certainly not easy to be content—to trust that God is good even when we face rain clouds or radiation treatment.

Six Prayers for the Half-Hearted (Marshall Segal, Desiring God)

Marshall Segal pulls from a variety of biblical authors to offer these six wonderful prayers for the half-hearted. Check it out! When was the last time you saw Zephaniah quoted in a blog post?
