A La Carte (July 14)

thursday

Grace and peace to you today.

(Yesterday on the blog: What a Wonder Is a Human Being!)

Three Pursuits Better Than Being Right

There are some things that are more important than being right, as this article explains.

God is One

“God has revealed himself as Triune. He is both one and three. Yet many hear that statement as contradictory. Obviously, in mathematics 1 does not equal 3. And it would be a contradiction if God was one and three in the same way. But he is not.”

Can Satan Help Grow Your Church?

Let us not be those who are known digitally but not locally.

—Isaac Adams

    God’s Goodness in a Cruel World

    There is much to love and appreciate about our God, much for which we ought to give him praise and thanks. One of the attributes we may consider too seldom is his goodness, and as an aspect or component of his goodness, his kindness. And that is the subject of
