Sometimes we wonder what God’s will is. For those times when He seems not so direct: God’s will is the next good thing. No need to wait around for all the answers.
To be at the service of others alongside people whom you respect. That’s something to spend a life doing.
It’s six days into the month and I’m giving myself 30 more to memorize ten Bible passages. Yes 10!
Why Memorize Scripture?
Information comes in handy. I’m a Barista at a local Starbucks, and from time to time a customer asks me a random, but in-depth question about the different components of a coffee’s flavor profile. Or they may ask what is the benefit to one brewing method over another method. These questions are quite technical and require special knowledge.

Communion lets us recognize two things about Jesus and therefore it also brings out of us, two other things. Two and two, easy.
Two Things Communion Tells Us about Jesus

Almost as quickly, in fact, they are leaving the shelves and dawning worn pages as they are read in our possession; we can’t get enough of them.
Leadership is a hot topic, and amongst all the hype, followership has been marginalized and even despised. And that leaves us in a sad state of affairs.

There is no doubt that reading is natural to some and completely unnatural to others. No doubt. In these contemporary times, Psychology has shown us that not everyone’s best way of learning is through books- or words even. Though, I believe modern Psychology is a little weak; weak in regards to that it often gives people permission to be weak and lazy. “I wasn’t born with that learning style,” “My mind just doesn’t work that way.”
Again, there are legitimate credences to those thoughts. My conviction is this though:
