Seinfeld’s Secret – Here’s an interesting success sorry based on following Jerry Seinfeld’s productivity secret. “The concept is simple: spend some amount of time doing a desired activity every day and, when you do, cross off that day on a calendar. This creates a chain of Xs showing your progress. If you don’t do your specified task on one day, you don’t get an X and that chain is broken. It seems almost too simple to work, but it’s allowed me to accomplish so much more than I ever thought possible.”

Scripture Memory Resources – This blog has a helpful roundup of resources for helping you memorize Scripture.

Time Tables of an Affair – Brad Hambrick has a really helpful article that looks at two different time tables for an affair.

The way you lose the gospel is not by denying it, but by assuming it.

—D.A. Carson
