Saddleback Church pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren urges Christians to guard against falling prey to Satan's trap of procrastination and discouragement, which only leads to people delaying or giving up on their mission in life.
In his daily devotional on Thursday, the author of The Purpose-Driven Life encouraged believers not to give up in a message based on Galatians 6:9.
Even though it's not a sin to live in chronic worry and fear, it's not what God wants for people, says world renowned evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
On Thursday, Graham gave biblical advice to a self-identifed perpetual worrier who asked: "Is it a sin to worry about the future and all the bad things that might happen to me and my family (as well as the world)? I admit I'm a worrier, but what's really wrong with that?"
Graham responded that while it's "not necessarily wrong" to have concerns about the future, excessive worrying is unhealthy both spiritually and physically. more >>

Evangelist Franklin Graham is praising Olympian Allyson Felix who became the all-time most decorated U.S. woman in Olympic track and field history during the Rio Olympics on Tuesday, after she won her seventh Olympic medal in the women's 400-meter final.
"Taking a silver in the 400 meter, Allyson Felix has just become the most decorated U.S. women's track and field athlete in history!" Graham wrote on Facebook. "She makes no secret of her Christian faith on social media. Before yesterday's big event, Allyson posted, 'I praise God for it all.' She has also said, 'I came to know Jesus Christ at a very young age. … Faith leads my life. That's definitely the reason that I run.'"
In a photo finish of the 400-m race Monday night, fellow Olympian Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas dove across the line, edging Felix for the gold by .07 seconds. more >>
