I introduced this quarter’s book recommendation, Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters, and then talked about the idols that plague our lives. What hope do we have in overcoming them?
I hope that everyone had a wonderfully relaxing holiday with family and friends. We enjoyed two days of rest and relaxation. As everyone recovers from the turkey and stuffing, I wanted to share the best (or most viewed) posts this month. I would love to hear your thoughts on the topics.
God will remember you just like he remembered Joshua and the Israelites. He is concerned about you and the issues in your life. Likewise, God wants us to consciously remember him. If we show a little faith, he will get us across the “Jordan Rivers” that we may face. If we make God our top priority, we do not have to waste forty years or more before we see his promised blessings come to fruition in our lives. When God blesses our lives, even in an unexpected way, we ought to remember and be thankful.
