How Netflix Pays Its Employees – This is an interesting article. It details the ways in which Netflix pays its employees and assigns their vacation. It’s fun to see clever innovation in this way.

Caring for Widows – Brian Croft (whose blog really is becoming a must-read for pastors) has some good words about training young women to care for the widows in a congregation.

HCSB Online – HCSB has a new online version of their Study Bible that offers all kinds of interesting interactivity. People who want to dig deep into the text will particularly enjoy it, I think.

What’s Next for Francis Chan? – I really enjoyed this video where Mark Driscoll and Josh Harris talk to Francis Chan and even push back a little bit as he describes his plans. Be sure to watch for the great missed fist-bump at 5:55.

What’s Next for Francis Chan? A Conversation with Mark Driscoll and Joshua Harris from Ben Peays on Vimeo.

It was sin, and nothing but sin, which brought in all the ills that flesh is heir to. It was sin to which we owe every racking pain, and every loathsome infirmity, and every humbling weakness to which our poor bodies are liable. Let us keep this ever in mind. Let us hate sin with a godly hatred.

—J.C. Ryle
