Excellent or Praiseworthy – February 2022

Blessings to you. Here’s a list of articles and blog posts from around the web. Everything listed here was encouraging, helpful, or informative to me during the month of February.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

– Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

1. Fighting the Lie That I’m Behind in Life

I appreciate Ann Swindell’s thoughts on battling comparison. She pinpoints a common lie and directs our attention to Christ.

2. A Word to My Fellow Cynics

I’m a cynic. Perhaps you are too. Cindy Matson says, “while sardonically assuming the worst about a given situation or person may be socially acceptable, it diametrically opposes the character of Christ.” There are many things to praise about this article.

3. This Dying Young Woman Has a Message for Us

It has been said that the dying teach us the most about living. “Meet Brooklyn; she is a young woman living out her final few days at home on hospice care. Though her outer self is wasting away, her inner self is being renewed day by day, and she is a bright and shining light for the rest of us. I encourage you to follow her Facebook page, Brooklyn’s Journey Home, and walk alongside her as she faces, head-on, the last enemy death. With the shield of faith and sword of the Spirit, you will see a woman of courage, standing in the grace and strength of our Lord.”

4. Faith Like A Beach House

“In my mid-forties, my faith is much like our Beach House—full of potential, full of promise, full of what could be—but left dormant for too long, left to the buffeting effects of wind and rain, waiting out the scorching summers and unattended winters, my faith begins to stink.”

5. 5 Lies About Christian Community That Sound True and Why They Are Not

Ok. I’m shamelessly promoting an article I wrote for Gospel-Centered Discipleship. The article may not be excellent or praiseworthy, but many others by various writers are. It would be worth paying the site a visit.

6. Are We Too Distracted for Revival?

This is a very good question worth some undivided consideration.
