I’ve discovered that I have a self-sabotaging habit that I need to stop. I have the habit of going on Readability, Longform, Medium, and other such sights and sending articles that may be of interest to me to my Kindle. When I open my Kindle, I ask, “why is this here?” And I’m determining more often than not, that it’s “because I could send it there.” The result is a feeling of unresolved guilt. Who cares if I don’t get around to reading all of those articles. Better yet, I should delete them all and just read books!
Had a worthwhile Lord’s Day yesterday. Amy and Hannah were both ill, so I went to church by myself. I was inspired to read some Puritan literature from A Puritan Theology by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones. Finally got over the intimidation factor to crack the covers. I read the first chapter on preaching, on the Sabbath and Religious Worship, and a couple of other chapters Pure gold! For those who really want to see the best of theology applied, I can’t recommend this volume highly enough. I’m sensing a new appreciation for the graciousness of God in the gospel and a personal renewal in Bible study, prayer, worship, and studying the Word to preach.
