Why Do We Need Physical Rest? – “What actually drives us to unrest is rooted in our hearts, usually idolatry. For example, the workaholic sacrifices rest to the god of success, power, and productivity….So, I’ve learned that when I lie down to sleep it helps me to say to myself, ‘God, I am powering down, even though there is a ton to do, and lots to worry about, You are awake, working, and in perfect control, so I trust You to handle what I can’t.’ It helps me rest well knowing that everything is in His hands.”

8 Email Mistakes You Make – “Email has become the junk drawer of communication, the one we use when we don’t know what else to do. Identify the circumstances in which it makes the most sense to email and identify the circumstances in which it makes absolutely no sense to email. Then determine not to misuse it.”

An Interview with Paul Washer – “[A] preacher carries a Sword, a basin, and a towel. He is quick to use the basin and towel with great joy. But he is slow to use the sword, and he always does so with tears and fear and scarred knees.” Also read Part 2.

Why I Called Out Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer – “I have been preaching for 20 years. Yesterday I did something that I have never done before in a sermon. I publicly called out false teachers and named them by name.”
