5 Key Connections: Fire, Googling Wisdom

January 9, 2020

Here are five important passages from recent articles around the web, including on the fire in Australia and one on where wisdom can be found. Enjoy!

Grace Under Fire (Jodie McNeill, TGC Australia)

As I stood before these deserted homes holding a charged hose, I was reminded again of how the works of our hands are so fragile, even when made out of bricks and steel.

And, to be honest, I was also a bit scared myself, as this was the first time since I joined the RFS that I was going to directly face a firefront like this.

Googling Wisdom (Seth Lewis)

I need something more stable than shifting opinions, more authoritative than contradictory experts, more substantial than catchy slogans, and better at sifting through the confusion than my own gut feelings.

Open the Bible (Colin Smith, Challies)

The Bible story gives us the building blocks we need to grasp the gospel. Step by step, the Old Testament builds a worldview that opens our eyes to Jesus, why we need Him, and what He came into the world to accomplish.

How to Get Your Kids to Read the Bible (Jonathan Pitts, Lifeway Voices)

You’ve heard the saying that “you can teach what you know, but that you’ll reproduce who you are.” And so I’m a firm believer in the fact that I can try to teach my girls to do lots of different things, but if I’m not doing it myself I won’t reproduce it in them.

What Being “In Christ” Means (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

It’s good to pray that a person will be aware of the presence of Christ as they move through a time of trial. But it’s good to remember that a prayer for Christ to be with a Christian in trouble is a prayer that has already been answered.
