Faith in My Father's Love

Remember when you were only very little, and your dad was so very tall and strong, and in your eyes, he was a superhero? Now that we’ve grown older and become more independent, how often do we turn to our dads for help? 

Ways To Enjoy God

/
When it comes to our relationship with God, we all know what's the right thing to do: read your Bible, pray everyday, walk in constant obedience...and the list goes on. But when was the last time we stopped to really enjoy God’s presence, take stock of the gifts He has given us, and to revel in how much He delights in us?

Love Says "No": How Boundaries Express True Care

/
At the time, I just couldn’t see it. What did Jesus hold back? The concept of “boundaries”—setting limits on how much I’d give others, or how much they could take—seemed a post-modern reflex against living radical and poured-out. I didn’t see a whole lot about boundaries in the Gospels. Now I see it all over the place.

Vincenzo: A Sexy But Troubling Take on Justice

As much as I enjoyed Song Joong-ki's portrayal of the polished mafia consigliere, watching Vincenzo torture his enemies even as they pleaded for him to put a bullet through their heads and spare them of the excruciating pain and misery just didn’t sit right. Perhaps, as the show's protagonist, I was expecting that he would be “different”, and would redeem himself by choosing to spare his enemies at the very last moment. Instead, all the baddies get killed and Vincenzo gets away scot-free as he escapes the country. It’s the type of ending Song’s fans would applaud, but one that is also highly problematic.

How Dare God Create a World Filled with Suffering?

/
When I was growing up, I remember asking an adult “Why don’t you believe in God?” Her response stunned me: “If God was real, I wouldn’t have had seven miscarriages in a row.” Whether we go through cancer, lose a loved one, experience mental ill-health, or even just turn on the news, suffering is a universal experience. And it evokes within each of us a question that we rally at the God who claims Himself to be both powerful and good: How can God allow it?
