A La Carte (8/6)

Dear Stay-at-Home Mom - Trevin Wax has a letter to stay-at-home moms. “Dear Stay-at-Home Mom, You are a gift of God to your husband and your kids. But you don’t always feel that way, do you?”

Why India Doesn’t Win Medals - Just a couple of days ago a friend remarked that India doesn’t ever seem to win Olympic medals despite its vast population. Then I saw this article that explains why this is.

Set Apart - Kent Hughes’ book Set Apart is on sale at $2.99 (Kindle Edition). “In this book, R. Kent Hughes builds a case for godliness in the church—a case that echoes the biblical call to holiness. The church can reach the world only if it keeps itself from being ensnared by the world. Hughes is not simply urging Christians to say no to worldliness—he is calling the church to say yes to Christ and to his call to reach our lost world.”

The Failure of Pastors - There is wisdom in this article which describes the failure of ninety percent of pastors.

Harm’s Way - A friend shared this important article: “The devastating effects of abortion on women have been documented for years now, through longitudinal studies and through pushback organizations like the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. Now, at last, the aftereffects on men are beginning to see daylight, too.”

We fell, by no act of our own, in the first Adam; and we rise, without any merit of our own, in the second Adam.C.H. Spurgeon
