A La Carte (2/9)

Receiving Criticism - Dane Ortlund: “Seems to me there are two wrong ways to receive criticism and one right way. By ‘criticism’ I have in mind love-sent but hard words from a believing brother or sister that are meant for our good, in the spirit of so many NT passages (neglected by many today, first and foremost by me) that call us to exhort, rebuke, and sharpen one another.”

9 Good Purposes in Suffering - Rebecca has a helpful list, taken from scripture, of good results that come from the suffering of believers.

Radiant Inspiration - There are some nice Christian-themed wallpapers at this site.

Joke of the Year - “Comedian Tim Vine has cemented his reputation as king of the one-liners after he won the prize for joke of the year at the annual Lafta awards.” Some of the jokes here are pretty clever…

10 Digital Commandments - David has been reading a book about leadership in the digital age and provides what he is calling the 10 digital commandments. There’s some real wisdom there.

You cannot repent too soon, because you do not know how soon it may be too late. —Thomas Fuller
