I want to share a question and answer from a recent “Questions and Bible Answers” issue of the Gospel Minutes publication. It underscores the importance of thinking carefully before taking a strong position toward spiritual topics, and also how easy it can be to allow the scriptures to reveal the “big picture” in regards to guiding principles and the questions we may have.

I talked to the editors at Gospel Minutes and I received their permission to put up a PDF of the article that I referenced a few days ago written by Clem Thurman called “Bed Too Short and Cover Too Narrow.” I encourage you to check it out if you don’t receive these papers through your congregation. Brother Thurman did an excellent job relating an “obscure” piece of scripture that’s thousands of years old to our modern-day mindset when it comes to finding fulfillment in the wrong places of life.

I don’t know if the congregation that you’re a member of has a subscript to Gospel Minutes or not, but if they do and you haven’t read last weeks article by Clem Thurman then I thoroughly suggest that you do so (Vol. 62, No. 42 – October 18, 2013). The article is called “Bed Too Short and Cover Too Narrow” which is a reference to a verse of scripture in the book Isaiah. Brother Thurman does an excellent job addressing the short comings of our modern-day culture and the answers to life that it seeks through any avenue other than God. If your congregation doesn’t have a subscription to this good paper then try to find a nearby brother or sister who can “loan” you theirs.
Are you looking for a “Halloween themed” devotional? Try the article I posted this morning on Keltonburg Preacher called “Don’t Let Your Sweet Tooth Trick You.” There’s enough room in it to go a couple of different directions. It’s a little similar to the point that Randal made in his latest post on Forthright called “A not-so-happy birthday card” which I also encourage you to check out if you haven’t yet done so.
Are you looking for some “meat of the word” reading about the nature of Jesus? Check out this article that I read yesterday by Wayne Jackson. It comes with the spiritual calories so get ready to exercise those spiritual senses (Hebrews 5:12-14).
Have a great day!
