Abraham’s Failure and the Peril of Inconsistency

The late professional golfer Tommy Armour observed, “It is not solely the capacity to make great shots that make champions, but the essential quality of making very few bad shots.”1 In other words, good golfers make consistent shots. What is true in the sport is true for all of life: consistency is the key to doing anything well, while inconsistency brings with it great peril.

There Is No Power in Prayer Itself


As Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane on the night before His crucifixion, He was distressed about His coming task. Luke tells us that He prayed, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me.” When He had prayed this, “there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.” Yet Luke immediately goes on to say that “being in agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground” (Luke 22:42–44).

From my example comfort take
And lay their griefs to rest.

Four Ways God Shows Us His Goodness


God’s goodness is an immense subject. Stephen Charnock, a seventeenth-century English Puritan, wrote extensively on the subject. In his two-volume work on the existence and attributes of God, he devoted 145 pages to God’s goodness along! Many of us would be hard-pressed to fill one page, but not Charnock. All of God’s acts, he says, are the outpourings of divine goodness. Charnock lists some examples:
