RPS #30 — The Craziness of Laziness

Our society likes to portray laziness as a laughable but excusable foible. The Scriptures, however, speak of laziness in far harsher tones. In this episode, I talk about just how ugly, shameful, and disgusting sloth is—especially in the life of believers. It’s only when we acknowledge just how horrible this sin of laziness is that we will put in the effort to mortify it in our lives. Links How to Stop Being So LazyPatreon


RPS #29 — Pick a Plan, Any Plan

In many situations being careful to create a thoughtful plan before taking the first step is very wise.

There’s a question that has the power to push away the fog of indecision.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it looks like to be a Christian on the internet—how our online interactions represent Christ.

RPS #17 – Prayer and the Productive Christian

What if I told you that Christians had exclusive access to the ultimate productivity weapon?
