The Old Testament offers stories of heroes in the faith who inspire us, encourage us, and model how to live the Christian life with courage and confidence in God. And yet, woven into these stories of faith and courage are cautionary tales of fear and compromise.

Julius Kim addressed Genesis 29:15–35 in a sermon to his congregation of New Life Presbyterian Church in Escondido, California, on August 30, 2020, titled “Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places.” Kim uses Genesis 29 and the story of Jacob, Leah, and Rachel to remind us to look to Christ for ultimate love, healing for our brokenness, and the fulfillment of our hearts’ desires. The Bible tells us the amazing story of God’s rescue, Jesus’s substitutionary death, and the divine grace and love that fixes all brokenness and fills all emptiness.


Is the digital age making us foolish?

Do you feel yourself becoming more foolish the more time you spend scrolling on social media? You’re not alone. Addictive algorithms make huge money for Silicon Valley, but they make huge fools of us.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With intentionality and the discipline to cultivate healthier media consumption habits, we can resist the foolishness of the age and instead become wise and spiritually mature. Brett McCracken’s The Wisdom Pyramid: Feeding Your Soul in a Post-Truth World shows us the way.
