Failed Humblebrag? – Jim Hamilton: “Some people think it ironic that Moses purportedly wrote Numbers 12:3, ‘Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth’ (NAS). The irony is obvious, right? It’s hardly humble to declare yourself the most humble man in the world. Unless it’s true.”

5 Parenting Lessons – David Murray points to 5 useful parenting lessons for the digital age.

An Amazing Life – Phil Johnson remembers an amazing life.

The Sweet Smell of Success – Carl Trueman looks to the past and draws a lesson: “There is a lesson there: fill the church, especially with hip youngsters and young professionals, and you can get away with anything, even dressing like DeNiro and having an all-female catsuit bodyguard. Well, you can for a while, at least.”

4 Questions – This blogger recently asked me 4 questions about the Puritans (not that I really know much of anything about the Puritans, of course).

Shock and Awe – This is kind of a spooky story (warning: there’s a bit of bad language along the way). It is the inside scoop from someone who was detained on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It makes you think twice about flying.

Pat Robertson – Russell Moore pens a response to Pat Robertson’s horrific words about abandoning a wife who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. Joni also comments.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.

    Why Those Who Seem Most Likely to Come, Never Come At All
