Gratituesday: Biblical Teaching and Resources

My morning, thus far:
  • Read my Bible
  • Consulted resources to help me understand challenging parts (visions in Zechariah ;)
  • Pondered the strengths and weaknesses of the latest book that I am reading (A Way With Words by Christin Ditchfield) while getting my children some breakfast
  • Looked at a map reminding me to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters
In all of these things, I am incredibly aware of God's kindness and provision. He has given me a heart that desires to grow in Christ-likeness, and He has given me enabling grace as well as the Holy Spirit to bring about change in my life. He has allowed me to have a great number of Biblical resources available to me as well as incredibly Biblical, Christ-centered, Gospel-focused teaching to help me discern what is best. Not everyone can have hundreds of books on their shelves that help them better understand the Scriptures. May we not take these things for granted today and pray for those who are struggling to even have a Bible in their homes!

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
(2 Peter 3:18 ESV)
