A couple weeks ago I began a blog series on Christian life hacks. I believe that for many of us there can be a disconnect between what we know (or how we should be living) and our heart (or how we actually live). Last time I mentioned a simple way to grow one’s prayer life.
I honestly don't know when are where the term "life hack" came into being, but I do know that it is widely used today in our society. If you are unfamiliar with what a life hack is, it's basically "a strategy or technique adopted in order to manage one's time and daily activities in a more efficient way."
It’s been an interesting year to say the least. I’m glad the election is over, it seems that with every four years the choosing of a new president all but literally rips the country in two. The last couple months have been filled with commentary, news, bias on all sides, lies, truth, division, name calling, posturing, you name it, we’ve seen it.
I love the subject of meekness, and how it slow closely ties with wisdom. The honest truth is that not many people have meekness. With recent rises in racial tension, election season hysteria, and the phenomenon of social media where everyone verbalizes (via text, so without being able to perceive the heart or emotions behind the opinion) their deepest frustrations and anger, we believers need to model meekness more now than ever.
I have one main objective, to convince each heart that children are a blessing from God. In hopes that once we have a clear vision about the eternal value of a child, we’ll raise them in such a way as to advance the Kingdom of God on the earth. I could easily fill 45 minutes with all the reasons I like children and think they are a blessing.
