NUGGETS [10/22/13]

The Subtle Art of Destroying Humans – John Knight: “As I had warned you, I was concerned that your boisterous assault on the unborn vermin with the rare chromosomal makeup (the “disabled,” as the other vermin call them) was going to expose all our plans to destroy them.”

8 Benefits of Forgiving Others – David Murray: “[If] relatively minor offenses against such relatively minor people can help us to forgive, how much more being forgiven by a holy God for offenses not just against His law but against His love?”

The Glorious Groan of the Gospel – Scott Oliphant: “[S]uffering and tragedies are meant to drive us to “repent,” that is, to change our mind about sin and recognize it as an affront to a glorious and all-holy God, which affront deserves and brings punishment to all.”

Quit Calling Your Wife Hot – Barnabas Piper: “It is a great thing to honor your wife publicly. It’s good for people to know your devotion to her and how much you love her. It’s good for people to know you are attracted only to her and want only her. But keep the hotness talk inside the walls of your home. That’s between you and her.”

Self-Discipline – Steve Lawson: “Growth in personal holiness is largely determined by our progress in self-discipline. Without this foundational discipline, there can be no advancement in grace. Before other disciplines can be administered, whether in the home, business, or church, there first must be self-discipline.”

A Hope Deferred – My review of a new book on adoption and the fatherhood of God published by Shepherd Press.
