The Read and Share File

overload

This is where I list other blog posts and articles that I’ve read myself and wish to share with others.  They’ve slowed down since the introduction of Happy Monday, but this is Read and Share #18.  

It’s a little late, but this treatment of I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day proclaims the wonder of the Gospel.

Randy Kilgore takes an inspiring look at T-ball in this day’s devotion at Our Daily Bread.

Check out Throw it Out, New Year’s posting from our friend Cloudwatcher.

I can’t believe Americans were ready to take up arms to defend Chick-fil-A last summer but sit idly by while this happens at Hobby Lobby.  (Yes I can, because Hobby Lobby isn’t frying chicken.  Still outraged.)

What four men in the Bible walked with God?  Think about it, then check your list against Rick Prorritt’s.

I’ve also been reading the first chapters of Genesis.  You’re probably familiar but with this passage:

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
(Genesis 1:27 ESV)

But have you ever really noticed this:

When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. (emphasis mine)
(Genesis 5:1-3 ESV)

  1. Thanks for the mention Clark.
    Re Genersis 1:27. Yes, I have long stated that we were created in the image of sinful man, who was created in the image of God but who marred that image when he sinned.

  2. God created a world that was “good” and created man in his own image. The world was affected by sin and the curse, and further affected by the flood. After the flood, God proclaims that he will require a reckoning of any that shed’s lifeblood, stating “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” -Genesis 9:6

    The image was marred, but still resembles the original state. All of creation is like a shadow or an echo of former things when all was perfect. There is of course a bright side; he’s going to fix it.
