Weekend Nuggets -2/22/14 - Discernment Bloggers, Sexual Purity, Missionary Hearted Moms, Key Ingredient for a Happy Marriage & More!

In the Crosshairs of the Discernment Bloggers - "They act as if they are humble truth-seekers but have a tabloid-level threshold for their own scurrilous accusations. They give an appearance of being engaged in investigative journalism but bear a far closer resemblance to tabloids. Worst of all, you and I are reading and believing them. We participate in their gossip and intimidation tactics every time we read their sites."

Stay-at-Home Moms with Missionary Hearts - "Even if we have no plans to physically move and live in a foreign land, if we’re among those who’ve heard and received the gospel and been grafted into God’s people, our hearts should have felt a seismic shift — from our little, personal perspective to God’s grand, global perspective. And when that shift happens in our hearts, and in our home, there are lots of little things we can do that, by God’s power, may have an impact around the world."

Guidelines for Sexual Purity - "I’ve developed the following material and presented it to many young people and their parents over many years. When my now married daughters were teenagers, I honed it further for sharing and discussion with them and the young men who asked to date them. Until we had gone over these principles together (my wife and I, our daughter and the boy) and made sure there was complete agreement, we didn’t allow a dating relationship to begin." 

The Key Ingredient for a Happy Marriage“Husbands and wives, recognize that in marriage you have become one flesh. If you live for your private pleasure at the expense of your spouse, you are living against yourself and destroying your joy. But if you devote yourself with all your heart to the holy joy of your spouse, you will also be living for your joy and making a marriage after the image of Christ and His church.”

"Everyone carries an atmosphere about him. It may be healthful and invigorating, or it may be unwholesome and depressing. It may make a little spot of the world a sweeter, better, safer place to live in; or it may make it harder for those to live worthily and beautifully who dwell within its circle.”
