- On the Podcast: RPS #57 — On Taking Smart Notes
Now, for what’s happening on the web:
“In the midst of our busyness, a friend in need texts, “Can you talk?” A church member asks for help to move a dresser. A coworker requests our feedback on a project. The driven among us find that such love disrupts our schedules, overturns our plans for the day, makes hash of our productivity, leaves our to-do lists half done. “Love your neighbor,” as it turns out, can feel like a frustratingly inconvenient command.”
“The note-taking tools market is projected to reach $1.35B by 2026. The good thing is: there is a note-taking app for everyone. The not-so-great thing: with a new note-taking app popping up every single week, it can be hard to decide which one is the best for your use case.”

“As believers, we want to see Jesus glorified and we want to see His name magnified in our lives…but it’s so easy to believe He could be better glorified in our lives if He gave us the speaking ability of our Sunday School teacher, the energy of that one elder’s wife or the hospitality genius of our Bible Study hosts.”
