Here are some links worth reading:

At Last – Jared Wilson has a collection of real photos of grooms seeing their brides for the first time on their wedding day. He concludes with a fitting gospel application.

One Reason I Don’t Play the Lotto – Mike shares just one reason (a good reason!) that he doesn’t play the lottery.

A Birthday Song – Elisha’s blog is one of my new favorites. Here she writes about not knowing her husband as well as she thought she did.

If You Can Keep From Preaching, Do It! – I appreciate what H.B. Charles says in this article. At the same time, I think there are some preachers out there who are reluctant on one level, but still doing what God has called them to do.

Don’t Undersell Your Commute – Jonathan Parnell wants you to make the most of your commute. “What if for one week we commissioned our commute for more expressly seeking God? Let’s start with just five days, beginning this upcoming Monday through Friday. Would you join me in setting this time aside for prayer and meditation on the gospel?”

The Bible is alive; it speaks to me. It has feet; it runs after me. It has hands; it lays hold of me!

—Martin Luther
