Excerpts from the May–June 2012 Issue!
A Timeless Message
When Nancy Leigh DeMoss was eight years old, she taught her very first Bible study class: a group of her third-grade peers. Although it might have seemed like a precocious move at the time, her actions displayed a desire to teach that stuck with her. Today, she is a radio host for Revive Our Hearts, the author of 14 books, and a passionate teacher of the Bible.
The Heart/Mind Balance
It can be tempting to pursue biblical knowledge for its own sake. Just as tempting is the pursuit of religious experience without a biblical foundation. As a well-respected New Testament scholar and university professor, Scot McKnight has experienced the tension of these pursuits.
Pity the Fool
The temptation to rip into someone when he or she speaks foolishly at our expense isn’t a stretch for most of us. We get angry at the person who unfairly blames us in a department-wide email. Or we feel ashamed when our entrusted secret becomes an engaging dinner-party topic. Self-justification incites a response. But should we respond to the perpetrators of such foolishness? Proverbs 26 says no—and yes: “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes” (26:4–5). While we ponder whether we should even answer the fool, it’s helpful to understand who the writer of the book of Proverbs is actually talking about. What words or actions characterize a fool?
