Here’s what we’ve benefitted from online recently:

Our friend Sam Luce had a post entitled “Why Parents should Have Favorites”. He says, “The reason that most Christian parents don’t believe in favorites is that they believe that God loves the whole world in the generic sense. They don’t understand that they are loved in a very specific sense.” This is an important distinction that needs to be made as well as a message each of our kids needs to hear.

Sam Rainer had a post that makes a distinction between church tolerating kids and embracing them. The post lists 6 things an embracing church understands about kids. This is a good list to be used for the purpose of evaluation and improvement. It’s a solid list worthy of your time and consideration.

Sarah Frazer had a post on Gospel-Centered Discipleship entitled “The Secret Discipleship Tool You Already Have”. It should be no secret what the tool is: “Prayer is the secret discipleship tool we already own.” She explains why she says it secret. This is a tool that may go unnoticed by those who were are seeking to disciple, but not by God who empowers it.
