Here's what I've been reading as I swung around the web: Owen Strachan had a great post over on CBMW blog on what Christlike male headship looks like practically. Here's a quote, "Few words are more invested with meaning than the term “headship.” It’s a Christological and theological term that is grounded in Ephesians 5:23, which reads “For the husband is the head [Greek kephale] of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.” " Men, you need to read this because this is what you are called to.
Paul Tripp had a great post on his blog about the virtues of being silent. He says, "Whether it's greed, jealously, perversion, anger, or a host of other sins, our tongues will expose those heart-felt sentiments through words." I needed to hear this and I suspect you do as well.
I was directed to this post that asks the question, "Has homework time become a time of struggles at your house?" This post offers practical hints for parents.
Ryan Huguley had a post on his blog on prayer. He says, "God welcomes, wants, and even commands that we offer persistent prayers." This is an area I struggle with, the consistency of it, and this is what I needed to be reminded of.
And finally, Desiring God had a post that hit close to home on the topic of apathy. It reads, " “I don’t care” has become a parasite on something much more forceful: “That doesn’t matter.” " This post has practical advice on how to deal with apathy. It's a great read for anyone who struggles with apathy.
