describes so well how I feel about the people in my life :) #family
Erwin McManus says everyone is an artist, whether they know it or not.
I know I’ve tried to make this point to encourage people at various times, and most of the time, my thoughts have fallen flat and were left unreceived. I know this result was probably because my thoughts were unformed and young. I guess McManus’ sentiments get me and I wonder if his book will help me understand this better — to encourage myself as well as those around me
Asian American families expect a lot from from their kids and they get it, says the latest study. But standards are so high that those with less than straight A’s can feel like outliers.
as I reflect on these observations, I realize how much weaker my cultural bondages/frames are. I want my identity to be His daughter — for this to be my root and primary foundation of character. oh, how I long and ache for freedom from the bondages of cultural identity, not only for myself but all those around me. I long for the day our churches lead our communities in what it looks like to live out His glory in cultural diversity, worshipping Him for cultures as His beautiful workmanship, a gift for the Church.
hmm…hopefully I’ll get to muse on this some more soon.
