How About Some Lists?

June 1, 2012

First, here are ten ways fear robs me of what God desires. If we’re honest, we all have the fear monster lurking somewhere. We need to get this into our hearts.

Second, Debbie and I are nearly done with our active parenting. Last night closed that book with Hannah’s graduation. That said, here are Ten Things No One Every Told You About Being A Dad. I like number 5: “There are singular moments of joy so indescribable they can only be experienced.”

Finally, I’ve appreciated Don Carson’s great theological acumen through the years. Here he lists Six Resolutions For Living in Light of the Gospel.

1. Resolve to rejoice always in the Lord (Phil 4:4).

2. Resolve to be known for gentleness (Phil 4:5).

3. Resolve not to be anxious about anything (Phil 4:6-7).

4. Resolve to think holy thoughts (Phil 4:8-9).

5. Resolve to learn the secret of contentment (Phil 4:10-13).

6. Resolve to grow in the grace of gratitude and courtesy (Phil 4:14-20).
