What I Read Online – 06/10/2013 (p.m.)

11 Jun
    • Serve in a local church
    • Read the Bible
    • Prioritize your marriage.
    • Exercise and sleep
    • Beware of cynicism and arrogance
    • Find out which professors to take
    • Learn the languages
    • Study hard and take the hard classes
    • This book helpfully points out that modesty exceeds the scope of my wardrobe. Modest seeks to give the gospel maximum impact. Modest attire for a tropical holiday will not be the same for a job interview. Modesty can be expressed in all times and all circumstances by all people, regardless of your gender and wardrobe taste. It’s an issue for all of us (not just pretty girls!), because love must always be expressed appropriately for the situation. This book defines modesty as a form of love and respect for my neighbour, sensitive to her cultural and situational context.
    • Due to its militaristic theme and martial melody, the hymn has encountered some resistance in recent years, and some church denominations have removed it from their hymn books entirely. However, it is appropriate to remember that Paul commands Timothy to “share in suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3), and that he instructs the church to “put on the whole armor of God” because we wrestle against the spiritual forces of evil (Ephesians 6).
