Tobymac on the show! Featured
All our notes for the show on Thursday 11th October
It's been a while since 2015's This Is Not A Test, but Tobymac is back with his new album, The Elements. Listen below to hear about the album, and whether making it in the music industry is harder than raising five kids!
Random things we talked about:
Have you ever wondered how megachurch pastors say grace before meals? Steven Furtick from Elevation Church went to a cafe with Brian Houston from Hillsong to chat, and had to say grace (watch from 1:32 for the grace, but there's loads of good stuff in this interview)
Harper Yates is not quite 5 months old, and is about to become the youngest person to visit all 50 of the United States.
I hope this encourages you today:
Verse of the Day
Proverbs 11:24-25 says:
The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.
The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.
God is a giving and generous God. He longs for his children to be like him in this grace. Our place on earth is not to be hoarders or collectors of blessing, forgiveness, wealth, and opportunity. No, following the lead of our Heavenly Father, we are to be conduits of blessing, forgiveness, wealth, and opportunity. As we are generous like God, we trust that he will draw us more and more into his character and more able to help others in the future.
