Some helpful articles from around the web recently:
- Heath Lambert answers the question often asked of biblical counselors, “Who says medicine is important?”
- There have been several recent helpful posts for students, and particularly college students. David Mathis offers a brief and helpful video in, “You’re Not a Student First,” Marshall Segal provides “Five Back-to-School Basics,” and Sammy Rhodes addresses “College Doesn’t Change Your Heart, It Reveals It.” And somewhat more pragmatically, the Art of Manliness informs students with some classroom tips in, “Write This Down: Note-Taking Strategies for Academic Success.”
- J.D. Greear considers the topic of work and evangelism and numerous practical ways to engage in gospel conversations in “26 Ways to “Provoke the 1 Peter 3:15 Question” at Work.”
- Following the suicide of Robin Williams, there were several helpful articles on the topic of suicide, including: “Robin Williams, Sentimentalism, and Blunt Truth (updated),” “Help for Those Fighting or Grieving a Suicide,” and “Four Brief Theses on Suicide.” Additionally, four years ago I preached a funeral sermon for a man in our church body who committed suicide. The recording from that message can be heard here.
- If you’re a fan of C. S. Lewis, you can “Download the Complete Chronicles of Narnia.” I’ve not listened to these, but it looks like a great deal.
- A father writes of his son’s kidnapping in, “What Thieves Cannot Break Through and Steal” and then in “To The Judge Sentencing My Son’s Kidnapper.” These two articles reflect what it means to rest in God when circumstances bring unwanted suffering and trials into our lives.
