Communication: You can say what you want, but calling someone or giving them a visit is more meaningful than a text or shout-out on social media. When we text, we retain full control of our time. Yet, when we call or visit, we lose control. The other person may want more than what we originally intended. It is sometimes more difficult to end a call or leave a house than it is to stop texting. Do you text when you should probably give someone a call? People matter.
Creation: Are there two different creation accounts, one in Genesis 1 and the other in Genesis 2? If so, does the Bible contradict itself? This is important because if the Bible contradicts itself, then this is an indictment against God’s character and the truthfulness of the Bible itself. However, many do not see any major rift between the two accounts. This 3-minute read is excellent for considering these two accounts in a different light: “Are There Two Creation Accounts” by Benjamin Shaw.
Waiting: Oh my, waiting can be torture. When you care deeply about something and are forced to wait for the outcome, it can be so hard. But what is the other option? To not try? To not go for it? To not put yourself out there? To settle? No thanks. That seems more painful.
