Wars and Rumors of Wars


Lift Up Your Eyes!

My YouTube feed was full of wars and rumors of wars videos this morning. It reminded me of this passage.

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.Formany will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’and will deceive many.And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; forall these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.Fornation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will befamines,pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Matthew 24:4-8 NKJV

Pattern puzzle

Can you determine the next pattern in this pattern sequence?

Solution

In every row, the three images depict lines with 0, 1 and 2 intersections. That is, each row must contain an image with 0 intersection, an image with 1 intersection, and an image with 2 intersections.

The number of intersections of the images for the first two rows are in this order:

0, 2, 1
2, 1…

It’s now easy to conclude that the answer has to be a figure that depicts 2 intersections. From the choices, figure C is the only choice that has 2 intersections.

A friend emailed this puzzle to me earlier this morning as a challenge. He said that only a “genius” could solve it (you know, like those claims you see on puzzles from Facebook). While I would admit that this made me think for a…

From The Darkness Into The Light

February 3
“Does it Really Matter All That Much?”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hos_4:6).
We were all assembled at the main archway of the great Library, checking our gear and supplies as we readied ourselves for our onward journey to a place called Grace.
“May I ask a question?” a timid young man said, raising his hand as though he were still in school.
“You sure can,” I replied, in a tone that put him at ease.
“Does it really matter all that much that we distinguish between God’s grace and His kindness? I mean, when you get right down to it – isn’t it really all the same?”
A few other travelers looked stunned; one could tell they concluded the young man had not been listening very well. But I felt it was an honest question, especially in light of the fact that we have…
