Here's what we've been reading online lately:

Greg Baird had a post on Children's Ministry Leader helping leaders understand the need for vision and how to people understand it. He reminds leaders, "I have to take responsibility for communicating the vision effectively." We aren't much of a leader if we aren't taking this responsibility seriously.

David Murray had a post on the Desiring God site on helping kids read the Bible. He wrote, "Earnest Christian parents want to help their children learn to read, understand, trust, and love the Bible. But most of us find this to be a significant, even daunting, challenge." Parents, this is both helpful and needed. Take advantage of this help.

Gospel-Centered Parenting had a post kids and doing ministry. It reads, "There are times when conversations are interrupted, children embarrass us, we are TIRED." But these aren't reasons to not do it. If you're a parent (especially of little ones), this will be an encouragement to you.

Here’s what we’ve been reading online this week:

Jamie Owens was over on the For the Church site writing on the topic of pastoral neglect of their families. He reminds us, “Our families are the closest people to us, and so our responsibility to disciple them and wash them in the Word is greatest.” He lists 4 lies that pastors tell themselves. If you’re a pastor, you need to heed this warning.

Our friend, Sam Luce, had a post on hearing God’s voice. He writes on the importance of listening and says, “Learning to listen is not a skill that is taught anywhere. It is a gift a few are born with, a skill most can learn, and is indispensable in our ability to hear God and love our fellow believers.” He goes on from to list reasons this is true. This will be a benefit to anyone who reads it.

Here's what we've been reading online this week:

Rachel Metzger over on the ERLC blog had a post connecting parenting and theology. She ends it this way, "Good theology ... encourages us to take heart, because God is in the business of rescuing fools and restoring hearts." Parents, our theology should lead us help our kids understand who God is and how to apply that understanding to our lives.

R. Kent Hughes had a post on the Crossway blog about how pastors making time for family. It starts out this way, "It’s easy to feel as a pastor that you don’t have time for your family like you ought to." He goes on to list ways to leverage the schedule in order to protect family time. Pastors, learn from and apply this wisdom.

Ryan Fredrick over on Fierce Marriage had a guest post entitled "What is 'Your Best Us'". He writes, "I believe that our families, our marriages, our unique USs, are what make us significant to God and to each other." In order to find out what he means by that, you'll have to read the rest of the post.
