A La Carte Collection cover image

The Parable of the Lawn Mower – Here’s a helpful little parable to help explain why we must preach the gospel rather than only attempting to display it.

The Gospel and the Shower Curtain Liner – Read this one for the great illustration of the shower curtain liner, and the idea of cleaning up ahead of the cleaner.

Two Questions – Kevin DeYoung has offers two questions that may just help your church’s ministry.

The Exclusivity of Treasure Pursuit – Paul Tripp distills it all the way down: “it’s spiritually impossible to pursue the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of self simultaneously.”

Books for Pastors – Westminster Books’ sales this week are geared toward pastors. There are lots of good titles there at very reasonable prices.

Am I in Trouble? – Here is some encouragement for those who haven’t opened their Bibles in too long.
