Positive Influences, Week of 02/05/2018

In this new series, I’ll present a weekly update to showcase some media, mainstream or otherwise, that is both positive and uplifting. With all the evil in the world, it’s important to step back and realize that it’s not all bad.

 

Song of the Week: Furious Love by VERIDIA

Beginning with a verse that highlights the lies Satan tells us every day, Furious Love is a beautiful letter to a Creator who pursues us relentlessly. The message is clear: our worth comes from who we are in Christ, not through what the world offers. Check it out here.

 

Media of the Week: The Kindness Diaries

Based on the book by the same name, this documentary series follows author/host Leon Logothetis as he travels the world. The twist is that his only possession is a motorbike, and for all his food and lodging, he must fully rely on the kindness of strangers. What results is a repeated exhibition of Christ-like love and sacrifice that might bring a tear to your eye. Check it out on Netflix.

 

Book of the Week: All Things New by John Eldredge

“Your heart is made for the kingdom of God. This might be the most important thing anyone will ever tell you about yourself: your heart only thrives in one habitat, and that safe place is called the kingdom of God.”

A beautiful examination of Heaven and the New Earth and the role it should play in our lives. Eldredge takes the abstract concepts of harps and clouds and brings eternity home.
