From the largest of galaxies to the tiniest of cells, there are some fascinating things science can teach us. But is there something it all has in common? Could there possibly be anything God’s Word could have to say about science?
This week on the podcast, we’re going to be looking at some of the lessons that Creation has to teach us. Fasten your seatbelt for a look at some amazing things from science–and we promise there are no formulas to memorize or quizzes at the end! 🙂 We’ll also begin counting down the last couple weeks of our contest, and much more. That’s all this week on the Sharpening Character Podcast!

The July Challenge!
As we head into July, we’ll be looking at a way to put into practice one of the most foundational principles in God’s Word: learning and applying the truth, especially from the “everyday lessons” we find all around us. As we’re encouraged by King Solomon in the book of Proverbs, we’re going to work on “Tak[ing] fast hold of instruction” as if our lives depend on it (Proverbs 4:13), and doing so by writing things down to help us remember (Proverbs 7:3).
So, here’s our challenge for this month: Write down something you’ve learned each day this month in a notebook or journal!
- Something that stood out to you in God’s Word
- A “life lesson” from an experience during the day
- A piece of wisdom or instruction (correction/reproof) you got from someone
- Some new fact or information (from school, research, etc.) from the day
- We suggest you use a pocket-sized notebook to make it easier to write down things as you get the opportunity to—research shows this actually helps our brains remember better!
Also, for the very first time, this month’s challenge comes with a contest! Head on over to our contests page to find out how you could win one of two prize packs or our grand prize, including a subscription to Log and Jotter notebooks and a Fisher Space Pen!
As always, our goal with the challenge is not to simply “check it off,” but to use it as a springboard to learn the lessons God is teaching us through the everyday. And by learn, we’re talking about actually applying them, and seeking God’s guidance for how we need to change to become more like the men He’s called us to be. We’re looking forward to learning along with you as we seek the Lord together this month!
