Top Blog Posts of the Week 5/26/2012

Posted by Joshua Claycamp on

This is a list of recent blog posts which I found interesting. That I found them interesting doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with or endorse all of the ideas presented in the posts, but that I found them to be intriguing and thought-provoking. They may benefit you as you prayerfully consider your area of shepherding and stewardship, which has been given to you in trust by the Lord. (They are listed in no particular order of interest.) Please post your comments to discuss  any article that strikes your interest. If you have recent blog posts to nominate, please send the link and your reasons for nominating that post to .

If Christ is Lord, Everything Matters

A fantastic discussion about Christ should invade, influence, and control every aspect of our lives! If you want to be a good shepherd over the resources that God has entrusted to you then this is a good consideration: The cheif shepherd wishes entrance into every aspect of your life in order to lead you!

Recently we had an excellent discussion on twitter about the following idea that @JakeBishop8 shared: “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.”

Your Greatest Contribution

Have you ever considered that your greatest contribution to the cause of Christ just might be the time you spend in intercessory prayer for your children and others we consider to be part of this “next generation”?

What a Comedian Taught Me About Parenting

Regan explained that he made a mistake as a parent because he stopped him: “Hey man, knock that off. Can’t you see the paint on the walls is more important than the joy in your heart?!” At that last line the audience burst into loud laughter and applause.


Check this out! Book lovers unite! This project looks promising, plus it will give you lots of great Gospel-centered resources for really cheap.

We’re really excited about how great a start we’re off to at Deep Roots Library! Less than two week since the site’s launch, and we’ve been visited from people from all 50 states and 78 countries. This is such a tremendous response, and I am thankful to God for what he’s doing here.

The Fruit of the Spirit and Your Work

This article is a must read for men who need to bring the Holy Spirit into their workplace! Be a leader at work, men! Shepherd your colleagues for the Glory of God.

We so easily miss that. It’s easy to think of the fruit of the Spirit and other Christian virtues as applying to some abstract realm, rather than being the character qualities we are to manifest every day, in all areas of life — which includes our work.

How to Start at Your New Church

Great read for all those who may have had to switch churches and are wondering about how to integrate into a new church!

Over ten years in pastoral ministry I’ve seen many new people come to church and I’ve seen a few long-time members leave our church. Some make these moves better than others.

The Unteachables: A Generation that Cannot Learn

Our public education system is killing us. Dad's and moms please read with discernment.

“The honeymoon is over.” Instructors who award low grades in humanities disciplines will likely be familiar with a phenomenon that occurs after the first essays are returned to students: former smiles vanish, hands once jubilantly raised to answer questions are now resentfully folded across chests, offended pride and sulkiness replace the careless cheer of former days. Too often, the smiles are gone for good because the customary “B+” or “A” grades have been withheld, and many students cannot forgive the insult.

Are You Mom Enough? (Mommy Wars)

I have no words.

Apparently, as she informed me, there is a perceived “mothering battleground” where moms pit themselves against each other over topics like feeding babies, choosing schools, eating healthy, disciplining children, and more.

Are you Wiser than a Miser? 6 Principles of Giving

Being a faithful steward is essential to Shepherding what God has entrusted to you. Give this article a read!

When her son broke his leg Hetty took him to a free clinic for the poor but when they refused admittance she tried (free) home remedies. The boy lost his leg. Hetty herself suffered from a severe hernia, but refused to spend the $150 for her surgery.

Shepherds Always Lead from the Front

A little tid-bit. But good.

The story is told about a group of tourists in Israel who had been informed by their Israeli tour guide, after observing a flock and their shepherd, that shepherds always lead their flocks from the front. He told his attentive listeners that they never “drive” the sheep from behind.


That's all for this week. Moms and Dads, take care of what the Father has entrusted to you.
