Nancy Guthrie’s interview with Scott Anderson is now available. Dianne and I have deeply appreciated Nancy’s God-centered, clear-eyed look at sorrow and the sovereignty of God in her books, conference messages, website, and now this interview that was conducted last Thursday. Dianne and I watched it live and look forward to watching it again.
On Monday I commented on a study that concluded that Internet Explorer users were ‘dumb.’
Well, I got fooled! It was a hoax.
This quote on the hoax sums up nicely how I behaved:
“I think most people just assumed that the research’s findings were dubious or unscientific, but it turned out the website was a sham too,” said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant with Web security firm Sophos.
Yes, that was me – making those same assumptions but not questioning the website itself. And I got taken in so easily.
Thankfully, God never gets taken in, ever. He sees everything, knows everything, and brings glory to his name through everything.
The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
keeping watch on the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3
And knowing us more intimately than we know ourselves, including how sinful we are, he loves us!
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:10-12
So, I was fooled and a little embarrassed. But even these things can ultimately be used to bring glory to God and lead to this great conclusion!
The Lord has done great things for us;
we are glad. Psalm 126:3
