This Week in the Blogosphere (January 11, 2014)

Every week, there are hundreds upon thousands of blog posts written by people all over the world. I find myself each week reading a few of them. From time to time, I like to share some of my favorite things I have read in the past week. I hope one or two of these stories might be an encouragement to you.

"It is a solemn thing to part company with the old year. It is a still more solemn thing to begin a new one. It is like entering a dark passage: we know not what we may meet before the end. All before us is uncertain: we know not what a day may bring forth, much less what may happen in a year. Reader, are you ready?"

In this short post, Burk looks at the statements by former 80s sitcom star Candace Cameron Bure on her life as a Christian wife. Many people have a problem with her saying she strives to submit to her husband. Her statements are counter-cultural, but spot on biblically.

In 1741, Jonathan Edwards received a letter from an 18-year old girl who had just been saved. She was seeking spiritual direction on how to live the Christian life. What do you think he said?

Are you looking for a laugh? Every Monday morning, Kevin DeYoung posts a funny video. This is his  summary of what he thought was the funniest from the past year. Warning: You will laugh!

"My kids aren't my life. But I'm not my life, either. I was at one time, or I thought I was, but not anymore. And their lives are eternally tied to mine, and mine to their, and every decision that I make will have an impact on them, for better or for worse. This is a responsibility that I must always keep in mind, all of the time, no matter what."
