This is a tough story to read, and I nearly did not make it to the end because I was filled with anger. But I made it, and was glad I did, because this true story showed exactly how God takes the evil of this world and turns it to good. It is proof that no matter what Satan tries, he ultimately cannot win. Here’s a little intro for you (but I warn you – if you start, you won’t be able to stop).
This is not just good advice for entrepreneurs, it’s good advice for pastors and business presentations. Maybe teachers, too.
This post continues looking at Rebecca Konynkyk DeYoung’s book Glittering Vices, which is a look at what we commonly call the “7 deadly sins” and she calls the “7 capital vices.” Her first vice is Envy, and we will see both how it affects us and DeYoung’s suggestion for remedying it. Perhaps you think it’s the same as covetousness or jealousy. I thought so – but it’s not.
Chris Brauns offers some encouragement and practical help here for something every Christian should be doing but might not have done since you were a kid (or since you were new in the faith).
Quite a while ago, Brian reprinted a post from John Stackhouse that was aimed at those considering seminary. Recently, I encountered and read a book that is aimed at that same audience. So, if you have ever or are currently considering a theological education of any type, I suggest you purchase and read So You’re Thinking About Going To Seminary by Derek Cooper. It explains who needs seminary, the different types of theological education available, the different degrees, and what a seminary education looks like. It is very helpful for opening your eyes. I wish I had read it before I attended seminary.
