Weekend Links 9/22

Hunger for God - From True Woman. "The greatest reason your hunger for God has waned is that you have filled yourself with less satisfying foods...Perhaps it may be time for you to change entire restaurants, or it may simply be time to make better choices. It’s not too late to start."

What I Am Learning About Younger Women - I was so so blessed by this. "Ultimately, teaching young women is not about prescribing a particular set of behaviours; it's about pointing a woman to Christ, and emphasizing that God is in control of every aspect of her life. "

Send Me Your Short-Term Missionaries - "Money cannot hug a fatherless child or enjoy fellowship with Christian brothers. Money cannot play soccer with drug dealers or wipe the tears from a hungry child. We Christians are called to serve the poor, sick, widows, and orphans. Money can buy food for the poor and build houses for the homeless, but just as Christ touched the leper (Matt 8:3), the poor also desire the touch of a loving and merciful hand."

My Life - A beautiful poem from John Piper.

Pick Up the Basin and the Towel - "We love titles: manager, co-ordinator, deacon, chairperson, vice-president; whatever. Sometimes, titles are necessary, but they don't make the service more legitimate. What makes it legitimate is the object of our worship, and the willingness to pick up the basin and the towel, no matter what the task."

Oh Behave! Conduct Worthy of the Gospel in Worship - "The principle of walking in line with the gospel (Galatians 2:14) in corporate worship looks like this: In grace consider others enough to refrain from distracting them, and extend grace to those who you find to be distracting. Here are a few suggestions for how to think well of and for others in corporate worship."
