A La Carte (8/17)

Are We All Braggarts? - From the WSJ: “Boasting isn’t just a problem on the Internet. In a society of unrelenting competition—where reality-show contestants duke it out for the approval of aging celebrities and pastors have publicists—is it any wonder we market ourselves relentlessly?”

I Choose Grace - Here is one man’s response when a registered sex offender moved into his neighborhood.

A Closing Plea - Spurgeon knew how to bring it. Here is a closing plea from one of his sermons.

The Amish Population - The Atlantic writes about the exploding Amish population.

Jesus Storybook Bible - Sally Lloyd-Jones Jesus Storybook Bible is available for $3.99 in the Kindle edition.

Miss Moose, Hit Bear - Yet another reason I love the Internet—so I can read stories like this: “A Norwegian driver who swerved his car on a rural road to avoid running into a moose hit a bear instead, authorities said on Thursday.”

God sweetens outward pain with inward peace. —Thomas Watson
