Why Doesn’t God Give More Specific Guidance?

People sometimes wonder, “Why God doesn’t always give us specific guidance about what to do?” When God told Noah to build the ark, he told him what size to make it, which materials to use, and what to bring on board. But many of us don’t receive that type of specific guidance from God. Why? God has given us basic guidance for life, telling us what is right and wrong. With the guidance and boundaries he has given us, there are a variety of ways that we can bring goodness and beauty into the world. I think half the fun for God is seeing our creativity. What will we do with what he has given us? What unique decisions and expressions will you make that delight the heart of God?

How to Read the Bible

People sometimes have the idea that the Bible is a difficult book to read, but most of it really isn’t difficult. The Bible is an amazing book that reveals who God is and tells us the highlights of God’s history with humanity. Much of the Bible is exciting, some of it is a bit dull, and some parts are horrifying, but all of it is enlightening, and it has a great ending that includes you. This video is a short introduction to what is in the Bible, along with an invitation to read the Bible with me on live stream.
