Today we’re going to talk about cows. Yes, cows! And more specifically, today you’ll learn how Scripture uses cows to teach us about humility! Are you ready for this?
You’ll appreciate this conversation about humility because it’s a spiritual superpower that we just don’t talk about enough. And often it’s because we don’t understand it.
We may think if we’re humble, then we’ll be walked on or overlooked. But humility is not just an attribute or an attitude, it’s an action—a powerful and profound force that can change you and the world around you.
I’m inviting you into my good life with another one of my Good Life episodes.
By the way, if you didn’t hear me singing with Lionel Richie on one of the past Good Life episodes, be sure to check that out too!
These Good Life episodes are my way of celebrating the release of my new Bible study, Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life (Lifeway, August 15, 2022). And this time, I thought I’d take you on an epic road trip with my family.
To celebrate the upcoming release of my latest Bible study, Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life (Lifeway, August 15, 2022), I’ve put together some BONUS episodes just for fun! I’m calling them “Good Life Episodes” because—as you’ll learn in the study—the book of Amos is inviting you to the God life, and the God life is the good life.
So, in these Good Life Episodes, I’m sharing with you some things that make my life good. And one of the things that makes my life very good is Lionel Richie!
I’m grateful you’re doing the Take Courage Bible study; and, I want to give you heads up about a possible speed bump on Day 3 of Week 1 that could slow you down or trip you up.
Here’s the deal. On page 21, I ask you to read Ezra 4:24. And then my comments indicate that the people stopped working on the temple because they became discouraged. But, if you read all of Ezra 4—which you don’t need to and aren’t supposed to yet—you would read that the people were “compelled by force to stop” in response to an order by King Artaxerxes (Ezra 4:23).
