Don’t Put God in a Box – I know you’ve heard this one before: Don’t put God in a box (when it comes to the miraculous gifts). Erik Raymond has a good response.

The Origin of OK – Where does the word “OK” come from? This video will tell you the origins of a word you’ve probably never thought about before.

Why I Am Relentlessly Committed to Expository Preaching – Just like the title says.

Good Fruit – This catchy little song for kids will get stuck in your head. The video nicely complements it.

When to Cover, When to Confront – Ray Ortlund has wise counsel about when to cover a sin and when to confront it.

—Tim Keller
