  • COLUMN: Multitasking can kill concentration

    I know exactly when I lost the ability to concentrate, deeply and fully, on one thing at a time. I realized it one day when I was about 30 pages in to a 60-page history reading assignment in my freshman year of college. I was reading faster than I could process everything, and taking breaks to finish Spanish and French homework. Then it dawned on me: I hadn’t actually finished a book since freshman year began.

  • COLUMN: God expects us to study to mature spiritually

    Spiritual immaturity causes Christians to say immature things, make immature decisions and act in immature ways. It is God’s will we become spiritually mature. 

    The Bible says in II Peter 3:18, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”          

    The Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 3:2-3 scolds the believers for their spiritual immaturity. They are on milk when they should be on meat. Would this describe many Christians that you know?
