October Links

Once or twice a month, I gather up links to some of my favourite reading and resources from the past fortnight. I’d love to know what you’ve been reading in the comments too.


My recent post at The Gospel Coalition: Let Hobbits Teach You Humility

I needed to read this article from Madelyn Canada: “Living for myself, for my own glory was exhausting and empty. It was a constant cycle of more work and less fruit. In the end, it led to a weary heart, ever growing to-do list, and the death of many necessary habits like Bible reading and time in prayer.

The Song that was Sharper than Sting
Bethany weaves Tolkien and Lewis into this breathtaking reflection on our eternal home: “He sings of home. The gardener had killed orcs and maimed a spider, but this was a deadly blow to Mordor. Sam attacked the blackness by remembering the light.”

Different Paths to Sanctification
“While God promises that he will sanctify us by His word and His Spirit, he does not promise us that it will happen in any particular set of circumstances. And this is good news for all of us whether married or single.”

Unconfessed Sin Is Killing Your Productivity
“Perhaps the worst discipline of all would be to succeed in our pursuits and productivity while nursing hidden sin only to discover in the final evaluation that sin had turned even those successes into failures.”


The Giving Episode (Age of Minority)
Helpful challenge for how I think about money. And I always love the father-daughter banter in this podcast!

Let’s Talk: Decision-Making (The Gospel Coalition)
I wouldn’t be surprised if every single roundup I do from now includes an episode from this podcast. It’s so good! Melissa Kruger, Jackie Hill Perry, and Jasmine Holmes apply biblical wisdom to a variety of issues (specifically targeted at women, but everyone should listen!).

Seven Lessons for Productivity (Ask Pastor John)
John Piper gives some really helpful advice on productivity.
